bradanddee first heard many of the wonderful songs on this new album at the Community Church Concert in Chapel Hill in February. What a beautiful venue to hear "Father of Mine" for the first time, just a day after my father passed in my arms. It really touched me and continues to bring tears to my eyes as I now may listen to it again....Thank you Ben et al.... Favorite track: Father of Mine.
