Air 1 rock dudes love their families

Check out these rock dudes AND chicks you hear on Air 1, and how they LOVE their families:

Third Day's Mark Lee (via Twitter)

Being newly married and constantly on the road was a real struggle. Through that process we learned that our families have to be a ...

... major priority. Who knows how long the band will last, but our marriages will last a lot longer! #erhs

It's my dads bday!! Gonna go hang with the fam

 

Skillet's John Cooper (blog)

"One of my favorite songs on the [new album "Awake"] is called "One Day Too Late." It's probably a little sentimental to me. The reason is because I have spent most of my adult life on the road with Skillet. I got married and Korey and I went on the road together. Next, we had kids on the road, and my kids have spent most of their lives on the road! All that to say, we have given every year, month and day to our music and the message. Sometimes I have to step back and realize that maybe I give too much time to this work. Perhaps I need to spend more time working on those relationships with my wife and kids, rather than spending all of my time on the music and ministry of Skillet. Because in the end, who cares how many records we sell, or how many lives are touched, if I ruin my relationships with my family or if I am a bad father, etc. Who knows how much time we have on this earth, and I want to live every day knowing that I lived for the things that really matter."

I've got a fist full of organic animal crackers and a big mug of Ethiopian coffee. I'm ready to pick a fight.

Yeah, that last one was just funny! :)
