The Winner is...

Ba-da-da-dum! (that's a drum roll)

Congratulations, bud! I'll get your CD in the mail ASAP... well, as soon as I order it. LOL. Everybody click his name up there and give him a congratulations on his blog! :D (He'd appreciate your comments. ;) ) 

Now for the how's and why's behind the choosing...
First, I typed all your names into a list and put them in alphabetical order in LibreOffice, then I went to random.org and pasted them into the list randomizer. The randomizer put your names out in a numbered list. Obviously, the person who wins would be the person who's name is by the number 1. Here's the picture below to illustrate:

To the 22 of you who did not win - thanks for entering! Sorry you didn't win. Feel free to buy yourself a consolation prize by clicking on any of the links in the giveaway post to check out the listed CDs. As you can see, this method is probably the fairest way to choose - no respecting of persons happened here. :) Mom witnessed the whole ceremony, if there's any doubt. ;)

    1. It truly was coincidental. Free trip to VT!? It's expensive enough going to TN, lol.

    1. I downloaded it off your Pinterest quite a while ago, but it was coincidence that it was the same one you used in your blog header. :)

    Belated comment, for reasons which Nick is aware of:

    I always use Microsoft Excel when I want to do a random draw. It includes a function named RAND which generates a random number between 0 and 1. Anyway, congrats Nathan!

    P.S. I like the new header.

  8. I saw your post on Google+ about the summer tires on your car:) LOL We just put new tires on the van I drive last week, and there was NO tread left on the old ones...I kind of found that out on my way home from church last Sunday night. My dad was going to take the van in last Monday to do it, and while at church Sunday night, it started to snow. Never a dull moment! We'll just say, I SLID down the on-ramp to the highway on my way home, and my vehicle was definitely not going the direction I was "telling" it to go. I was much relieved to get the tires changed...and now it's great! No sliding around, and no spinning wheels when trying to take off at a traffic light. Yay! Be safe in the snow...it can be quite the driving experience:) I'm definitely not planning on any fender benders like the one I had last year. LOL! Have a great day!
