Here's To The Ones- A Salute to Freedom & Family

There's a lot of problems and social concerns wearing Americans down these days. With the upcoming election, these problems seem to rise to the surface and put us almost in a state of panic. We are concerned about health care, Ebola, education and jobs security. So I was pleased to hear Rhett Walker Band's new album Here's To The Ones, filled with songs about America, Jesus' love and the importance of family. These four blue-collared Southern guys understand hard work, being on the road and away from their families. They understand the sacrifice that goes along with the American dream- a house, a warm meal and freedom.

Family, Faith and Country is their tagline, and their new album Here's to the Ones exemplifies their mission. The band fits into the Christian Southern Rock genre, and I found their sound comparable to Tom Petty, Bon Jovi, and even John Mellencamp.  Their song Here's to the Ones tells us that it takes a nation of families, soldiers and factory workers that still believe in taking chances and never backing down. Here's to the Red, White and Blue, and people like me and you, was one particular lyric that stood out to me. It gave me a sense of pride to be an American, and thankful to have the freedom to stay-at-home with my kids. Whether you're punching a time card or watching kids, we all have jobs to-do.

I enjoy listening to music while I work-- writing, washing dishes or cooking. The Rhett Walker Band has a beat that will have your fingers tapping and jamming along. It makes me want to turn it up like I'm listening to Skynyrd. Their lyrics are encouraging with a positive message behind them. You can understand what they're singing, and you can relate to these guys with their baseball caps and jeans. They have performed three times at the Grand Ole Opry and have been nominated for a Grammy, but these good old boys aren't too proud to sit on the porch, strum a few tunes, and drink some sweet tea. You can order Rhett Walker Band's new album, Here's To The Ones CD from Family Christian Store for only $9.99. Click here to make your purchase.

I'm the same way, I love to have music on when I'm writing and editing pictures... it keeps me going. I'm quite sure I can wash dishes faster while listening to a good fast song :)
