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!

Brandon Heath, Leeland & Francesca Battistelli on TOUR!

 

It's the "Follow You Tour" and yeah, nice lineup with Dove Award winner Brandon Heath, Grammy nominated band Leeland and Dove-Award-nominee-and-recently engaged-Francesca Battistelli

The idea for the tour came out of a trip to Cambodia with Food for the Hungry. Brandon Heath and Leeland were inspired after the trip to write a song together called "Follow You". The song is on Leeland's upcoming album, "Love is on the Move" (release date: August 25). 

The tour kicks off this fall and will be stopping by the Air 1 cities of Wichita Falls & Lubbock, TX; Ocala, FL; St. Paul, MN and more! Find out more about the "Follow You Tour", and keep listening to enjoy music from these artists on Air 1.

David Cook & Needtobreathe on the road!

 

The Needtobreathe guys have been having fun on the road with American Idol winner, David Cook. They have just a few more shows they're doing together before the band goes off to play at a few more summer festivals and then on to their fall tour.

You can catch Needtobreathe at shows in the Air 1 cities of Midland, TX; Louisville, KY and at Spirit West Coast Monterey, CA. See their tour schedule for more cities & all the details.

And the new Needtobreathe album, "The Outsiders" releases August 25th, so if you're able to catch them on the road before then, you'll get a sneak peek at their new music.

Of course, you can also hear the new single from that album, "Lay 'em Down" on Air 1.

It's one of the Top Air 1 Hits!
