ok..so I am still stalking Crowder....

Ok, most of you know that I am a huge David Crowder Band fan! So I have been reading his blog daily. He and the band are hanging out in his barn (recording studio) and putting together his latest CD. I can't wait! So Crowder is sharing little details of his daily agenda, giving us insight on how the project is coming and sharing little tidbits that some might find interesting.

He has gone into great detail about lunch, including before and after pictures of meals that have been eaten. I imagine that lunch is a pretty big deal. I compare his lunch crew with our lunch crew at work. Lunch becomes more than just a break during the noon hour that we enjoy delicious morsels. It is a time to breakdown the day, the week, and our lives. Lunch is a portion of time recaptured and put to good use solving the problems of our world. It is way more than just about eating. It is about our sanity. I believe that Crowder and the guys treat lunch that same way. It is a time of fellowship. It is a time for laughter. Lunch is a break from the tedious details of recording a cd, writing songs, singing lyrics, playing guitar riffs, and tracking a phat beat. It is about consuming life with friends and a Dr. Pepper.

Crowder shared a few days ago that they ran into an interesting character while eating at a local establishment. TED NUGENT! How funny is that? I am sure the Crowder band got all geeked out with the opportunity to meet a fellow rocker. The very next day, Ted showed up at the BARN! I know they had visions of Mr. Nugent jumping in on a song and lending some classic nostalgia to the next Crowder disc. It was so exciting for them...this is all Crowder could blog about that day....

so here's what has happened thus far today:

1. ted nugent came to the barn.


Awesome!

So then it happened. Crowder blogged today and announced:

no freaking way! ted nugent, aka: the nuge, terrible ted, deadly tedly, theodocious atrocious, uncle ted, sweaty teddy, great gonzos, the motor city madman, the nuge, wait i said that, anyway, he's coming to the barn again. this time he's bringing his guitar. he'll have his bow (as in bow and arrows) with him too but he told us he never leaves home with out that, but yes, he's bring a guitar. his backup songbird is what he told me on the phone. sometime this afternoon, like 3 or 4. we're going to have him play on "we won't be quiet." yes, the one that already has one bar of harmony lead guitars. this is too good. "we won't be quiet" featuring the nuge. when we asked him if he'd play on a tune he said, and i quote, "sure. you guys pick out the vehicle and i'll come over and turn it into a four wheel drive." might be a great opportunity for some monumental screen grabs.


This has to be a great time for David Crowder and the Band. They are living a dream that millions of others would love to be living. They are impacting lives with the gifts that God has given to them. Yet, they are still so down to earth that they get totally excited about an aging Rock Star from their youth that could probably care less about their ministry, but humors them just the same, because Ted Nugent is just as normal as the Crowder band themselves.

You got to love that!

Here is to great lunch crews!

AMEN to the lunch crews. I have to admit I have been blessed more than once by the fellowship of the 'Horizon' dudes at lunch. What a unique way to fellowship over 'chips and salsa'!!! I suppose it's our human nature to "belong" but you can't rule out the need for accountability amoung friends. God Is Good!!!
