Hawk Nelson is into shoes!

Hawk Nelson is into shoes, but not like girls are into shoes ... the HAWK guys are into TOMS shoes, because they donate one pair for every pair sold.  This video shows you why it's so important to them ... and how we can help get shoes to kids who desperately need them.

Oh, and you can also check out Hawks' new album, "Live Life Loud", due out September 22nd! They already have a couple of singles available on iTunes if you wanna check 'em out!

He's also preparing for his headlining tour this fall, plus, his latest single "Closer to Love" has recently been on VH1's top 20 countdown, and it's currently a top 10 Air 1 Hit!

Thanks to Air 1 promotions guy Paul for the "Conan" tip! :)

Fireflight on the attack!

 

I thought it was SO cool to read that Fireflight is asking for us to join them in a "spiritual battle". You don't hear this from bands often. But in a recent blog post, Fireflight's Justin said, 

"We really would appreciate your prayers. As we're writing a new record, the attacks on us have increased. It happened the last time, when we were writing Unbreakable..." Our prayer request is ... that you please pray for us as individuals ... and as a band that we [would not] be swayed from His plan for us. We know that [God] has us in this position to reach a lot of people, and we want each of the songs that make it to our new record covered in prayer so that God can continue to use us to get His message out, not our own."

If this is how their new album is starting out, with the band seeking God intensely, I can't wait to hear what God will do with this next Fireflight album!

Nose ring advice for Plumb

Ok, isn't it weird that "nose ring" is becoming a trending topic here on the Air 1 Music Blog?! 

 

First, it was Manwell from Group 1 Crew who posted a video of him trying to pierce his own nose.

 

Now it's Plumb! She recently blogged that she was in the pool when her nose ring came off, and she couldn't get it back on! Since she was asking for advice on getting the nose ring back in, I asked Air 1 listeners if they had any nose ring advice.

The Air 1 listeners who called the studio tonight (888-WIN-AIR1) came to a consensus:  call the place where you got your nose pierced and ask them what to do. One girl was told to use an antibiotic ointment like Neosporin on the ring before trying to put it back in. Another girl just did like Manwell and went for the needle. OUCH!

My consensus is ... I'm SO not getting a nose ring!
