Hope your new year is getting off to a great start!
We’re only 23 days into 2012 and so many wonderful things have already come.
I just received some incredible news this morning about my song “Christmas Without You.” In December, the Lawton Jiles/Buster Beam tune went to No. 1 in three countries – France, Denmark and Austria. It also was the 2nd most played song in all of Europe, right behind George Strait’s “I’m Gonna Be Alright.”
You can view the standings at:
At the moment, “I Want To Stand Where Jesus Stood” (written by Lawton Jiles) is a Top 40 hit on the Europe’s premier Hotdisc chart. It’s at No.8 and climbing! Additionally, it reached the Top 10 in the Ourstage Gospel competition last month and is currently at No. 3, poised to make the Top 10 once again.
Last week, RTV Country Festival in Holland named “I Want To Stand Where Jesus Stood” its “Gospel Track of the Week.”
I am so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to record songs by Jiles and Beam, who also wrote several chart-toppers for Patsy Cline. They are truly among the best and my gratitude for their great talent runs deep.
In other news, I have organized an oldies cruise for November, 2012 that will feature The Royal Guardsmen (Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron), Mercy (Love Can Make You Happy) and Robin McNamara (Lay A Little Lovin’ On Me).
We have just started taking reservations and if you’re interested in coming along, there is more information at: www.theroyalguardsmen.net. It promises to be a memorable and magical time on the high seas!
Lastly, Star Creek Entertainment has expanded and we now have a book publishing division. In April, we will be releasing investigative reporter Frank C. Girardot’s gripping whodunit, “Name Dropper: Investigating The Clark Rockefeller Mystery.”
If you like true crime stories, this is one you won’t want to miss. Find out more at: www.rockefellermystery.com.
Also, look for Frank on Dateline this Friday, January 27 (check local listings for times). The program will focus on Rockefeller’s preliminary hearing, which is going on right now in Los Angeles County. Frank is one of the leading experts in this case.
Before I sign off, I’d like to congratulate my clients “The Holiday Sisters” for their great success in the promotion of their children’s Christmas books, “Jesus’ Birthday Gift” (by Michelle Boggiano) and “The Amazing Giving Tree Secret” (by Mary Fimbel).
Michelle and Mary’s work touched countless individuals over the holiday season. And I know their timely and poignant messages will continue to transform hearts for years to come.
As always, I greatly appreciate your continued support and encouragement.
Wishing you a joyful journey!
