She's also engaged!

 

It's Blanca from Group1Crew! This week we heard that Air 1 artist Francesca Battistelli got engaged, and now we can add Blanca to the "no longer on the singles list" list! 

Congrats to Blanca and her fiance, Ben, on their upcoming wedding! She blogged about her engagement on the Group1Crew site. Here's an excerpt:  

I'M ENGAGED!! This is one of the most exciting times in my life because not only am i engaged to one of the coolest guys ever, I'm getting to plan my wedding as well!! (Every girls dream!! lol) In the midst of all the excitement and joy i learned a very valuable lesson that i wanted to share with all of you... that is: Wait on God, he always comes through.

Blanca shared more about how she went from wanting to do things her way to REALLY letting go and trusting God with her romantic life. (How hard that can be sometimes!) You can read the rest of her blog to find out more and be encouraged to trust God today.

Francesca Battistelli is engaged!

Congratulations to Francesca Battistelli and her new fiance, Matt Goodwin! You may have heard Francesca's music on Air 1 (Free to Be Me is her current Air 1 single). But did you know Matt's also in Christian music? He and his dad are both in the band Newsong (Matt plays percussion and his dad Billy is one of the lead vocalists and guitar players).

So, what's the Franny + Matt story? They met during a fall tour, and then met again on the Winter Jam tour. But Matt lives in Atlanta, GA, Franny lives in Nashville, TN and they both tour, so scheduling time together can be a challenge. 

On a recent visit, Matt arrived in Nashville earlier than Francesca expected. He whisked her away to a park they love to visit. (Cue romantic music) Then he asked her to sit down on this park bench, and started telling Franny how he felt about her. He just really shared what was in his heart. Then he knelt on one knee, and Francesca was in shock! In an interview this morning on the Air 1 Morning Show with Scott and Kelli, she said "It was so perfect and so sweet ... and of course I said yes!"

You can listen to the interview on the Air 1 Morning Show page. And follow Francesca on Twitter for more engagement/wedding updates!

Kiefer Sutherland directed this video

Did you know that Kiefer Sutherland directed the Lifehouse video for "Broken"? I guess that's what he does when he's not filming 24 as "Jack Bauer" or voicing characters on movies like "Monsters vs. Aliens". Cool!
Broken - Lifehouse

Summer plans for Red

Red is one of the Top 5 Air 1 artists this week, and their summer plans may not be that different from your summer plans. Mowing the lawn? Check. Weedwacking? Check. Having a baby? Check. Touring the country and rocking out with their fans? Check.

OK, so maybe you're not having a baby or touring the country this summer, but yeah, those are all on Red's list of things to do this Summer. Band member Randy and his wife just had a baby June 1st, so they're getting used to sleepless nights, diapers and all that fun stuff. 

The band also had a short, restful week at home where one of the guys bought a new lawnmower and weed wacker and was having the time of his life taking care of his yard.  

And if you look at their tour schedule, June-August the guys are staying VERY busy. They're hitting cities in Ohio,Georgia,North Carolina,Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New York, California, New Mexico, etc, etc, etc. They might be stopping by a city near you!
