So I love music, but I am not a musician. I’m a really-really-wanna-be musician, wishing I would not have quit playing violin sometime around the 6th grade (just because I didn’t like the teacher) or wondering if I could still learn to play piano. Anyway, I if I am not listening to something and reading the liner notes word for word, I might be checking someone’s tour schedule, seeing who has a new album coming out soon, or getting free CDs from JQ99.
While doing the tour checking thing a couple months ago, I found out that Andrew Peterson would be playing not too far from here. He’s a folkish, storytelling sort of singer who was amazing live. It was a rare treat. I have listened to the songs of his latest CD, Counting Stars, countless times. Around the same time, I came across Under the Radar, a radio show “offering gourmet music,” where Andrew was going to be a guest host. They were also having a contest, giving away some Andrew Peterson stuff, which I entered on a whim and had pretty much completely forgotten about when I was notified of this.
Since I already had a copy of the CD and actually the first book (which is currently residing in an unknown box), I decided spontaneously while typing a facebook comment the other day that I would have my own little contest to give away my “old” CD since I will soon have a shiny, autographed version.
It is good timing, since I’d been meaning to unveil this blog sometime soon. What better way than with a contest?
Contest is now over. Thanks to the 3 commenters for playing!
So, of you’d like to have my previously played copy of Counting Stars by Andrew Peterson, just leave a comment answering the question: What’cha been listening to most lately? (as in, what would have the most plays on your music player of choice in the past few months?) I’ll pick a winner in an as of yet undetermined manner (could be random, could be an answer I really like) at an undetermined time (probably within a few days). 😉
If I can find the book, maybe there will be 2 winners!
