The Giveaway!

Howdy folks!
Here it is, two too many days late. The - GIVEAWAY!!! (those colored fonts can be hard to read sometimes. :D Since I like music a lot, I think a CD would make a great giveaway! So here's the options:
1. Steve Maxwell Family - Simple Faith
This is a great CD for family singing with some songs on it that you won't find many other places, such as Daddy on His Knees, Give Us Rain, Another Soldier Down, and some other great ones. Genre: Bluegrass Gospel / Country

2. Steve Pettit Evangelistic Team - Clean Pickin'
 This CD is a great one to clap along to with songs like Foggy Mountain Breakdown and Orange Blossom Special, and enjoy a good laugh with Black Eyed Susie and Puttin' on the Dog. Heartily recommended for those who like fun music. :) (This is the only CD not specifically a "Christian" CD, but it is produced by a Christian group) Genre: Bluegrass

3. Buddy Davis - Hymns of the Wildwood
 Great old-time renditions of hymns that are usually sung in church. With instruments like the mountain dulcimer, banjo, jaw harp, and guitar, Buddy Davis' CD is an awesome one to sing along to or just kick back and listen. Genre: Appalachian Mtn. / Bluegrass Gospel / Traditional Country

4. Ricky Skaggs - Soldier of the Cross

 I don't actually own this CD (yet) but it's a great CD, featuring some of Skaggs' bluegrass singing (high, lonesome sound :) ) in songs like A Voice From on High, Gone Home, and Remember the Cross, and a little more country style in Soldier of the Cross and Seven Hillsides. Genre: Bluegrass Gospel / Traditional Country
5. Stephen Ray Nichols - Let's Build the Wall

 Let's Build the Wall by the Stephen Ray Nichols family includes lots of great music to encourage and uplift your spirit. Songs like Stand Still (by the Isaacs) encourage you to "wait upon the Lord" and God Wanted it That Way to help you see that God's ways are higher than ours and his thoughts are not ours. I highly recommend this CD. Genre: Southern Gospel / Unclassified
6. The Reeves Family - So Blessed
 This CD includes many great songs like It Doesn't Matter Who You Are and Mephibosheth (that's Mom's favorite one :) ) to uplift your soul. It's a great one for everyone to memorize and sing along to. Genre: Southern Gospel / Hymns / Unclassified


7.  The Bontrager Family - Salt and Light
 I don't actually own this CD either, but it's a great CD with songs like Stand Still, Salt and Light, Tell Me 'Bout the Good 'Ol Days, and Orange Blossom Special. There's plenty of Bluegrass for everyone in this CD. :) I highly recommend these folks too. Genre: Bluegrass Gospel / Bluegrass / Country

I added this one for Amos (anyone can choose it, though). This is an MP3 download, but I will put it on an Audio CD for you - I couldn't find it anywhere online as a CD. This is one of Mom's favorite CDs. Genre: Hymn / Christian

 I highly recommend I added this CD just in case Matt wins the giveaway (or any other friends who like classical music) :) If you do like classical, I imagine you would like this CD. Hannah is standing right next to me, and she recommends it. :D Her favorites are Spring, Autumn, and Winter. (I guess she doesn't like Summer?) :D Genre: Classical
 
There's the selection, folks! I think there's something in there for everyone. :D Now for the rules and instructions and informations:

  1. First, use a social network / blog to tell your friends about this giveaway or loopandway.com (my friends' and my tech website). IF, for some reason, you don't have a blog / website / facebook / google+ / twitter / pinterest / linkedin / foursquare / ghost / tumblr / instagram / aol / etc... You can just tell a friend in person, letter, or email. :D (Being technology independent is a good thing. :) )
  2. Anybody (including members of the same family) can enter! One requirement - the family member must type the comment themselves using the Name / URL option. (you can put a blank URL in) It's alright if little ones want to enter but misspell. :D
  3. No entering twice with different names... 
  4. Leave a comment with the CD you'd like and something about your favorite type of music and, if you did so, a link to the place you posted about the giveaway.
  5. There will be only one winner. 
  6. The names will be chosen in a fair way. :D (Random number generator or something of that nature will be used to ensure no human interference)
  7. The giveaway will end... November 25th! Please, send (not shoot) me an email if I forget to announce the winner that day. It wouldn't be so out of keeping with my usual post schedule. :-/
Have fun! :D


Comments

  1. I'd like to enter for the Bontrager's cd, "Salt and Light".

    As for my favorite type of music, that's somewhat difficult to say. I enjoy a good balance of bluegrass, Southern Gospel, and cd's such as the two above by the Nichols and the Reeves. (both of them are GREAT cds for anyone that might be interested in entering for them!).

    And, I emailed a friend about the giveaway. :)

  4. Why did you have to make the choice so hard? All of them sound awesome! (I'll say 'all' for Matt's benifit)
    I had a really, really hard time picking one, but after lots of careful thought I'll have to pick the Bontragers.:) I *love* their song "Salt and Light".
    Awesome, generous giveaway! Thanks so much for doing it!:) :)

    I already have various other recordings of the Four Seasons, so I'm not going to enter.

    My favourite music mostly consists of Russian folk songs, Red Army songs, and German opera (we need some variety), also piano music.

    For some reason, I don't have a blog / website / facebook / google+ / twitter / pinterest / linkedin / foursquare / ghost / tumblr / instagram / aol / etc...

    1. You might like the Buddy Davis CD if you liked Smoky Mtn. Gospel. I've never known you to dislike free stuff. :D

    2. TheronG10/26/2013

      That's true. So I guess I'll enter for the Hymns of the Wildwood CD.

      After all, if I don't like it, it costs nothing to put it in the rubbish bin :-)

      Delete
    3. If it does not suit your liking, perhaps you could send it to another reader. ;-)

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I posted about it on my blog: http://prov31-allmydays.blogspot.com/2013/10/just-quick-little-thought.html

    2. I could not comment earlier because I did not want to influence anyone's choice, but now that you put your vote in I can :). Nick promised to get me the Al Smith one if someone wins it (mine is broken ... listened to it too much :)). Hope you or Hosea win!!! Love, Aunt Joey
