You gotta check out this musician!

Happy Friday friends!! We have made it to another weekend!! :) **insert happy dance here**

My regular readers know that I love listening to music (especially country and contemporary Christian music). I follow Mac Powell (lead singer of the Christian band Third Day) on Twitter (you can follow him here). On Wednesday he posted that he was having a contest to see who could do the best Mac Powell impression. He later posted links of the finalists on his Twitter page. One of them was a musician named James David Carter. His video was awesome, he has such a great voice (and he's really good on the guitar too)! The link was to his YouTube page, so I checked out some other songs he has posted. I sent him a message on Twitter and he gave me the okay to post some of his videos on my blog so you can check them out as well! I highly recommend taking time to watch these! I honestly think no matter what your music preference is, you will like him. For more information, check James out on Twitter here. He also has a music Myspace page here

His video for the Mac Powell contest.

Here is his cover of Garth Brooks' "She's Every Woman" (one of my favorite Garth Brooks songs!) :)

His cover of  Amos Lee's "Arms of a Woman".

Here is one of his original songs!

For more videos, go to his YouTube page here. Best of luck James!! :)

Well, it's Friday, so you know what that means. It's Five Question Friday, Friendly Friday Follow and New Friend Friday time! Welcome to all visitors and new followers. I hope you enjoy your stay here!! If you would like to check out other blogs, click on one of the icons below and meet a new friend today! :)

New Friend Fridays

1. Do you have any nicknames and if so how did they come about?
I wonder if she read my blog yesterday and got inspired by my Thursday 13 post? :) Instead of retyping all of them, if you are interested, you can check out my post yesterday for my list of nicknames here. OH, I did leave out one that my sweet friend Gena reminded me of. Sniffles. My freshman  year of college I constantly had an upper respiratory infection or allergies, so I was sneezing and sniffling all the time. So, I got the nickname Sniffles!! 

Gena and me at the Women of Faith conference last year- we hadn't seen each other since college! Yes, that is a Dallas Stars hockey poster behind me! :) We were at the AAC.

2.What is your birth order amongst your siblings?
I am the youngest of 6 kids.

3. In a movie of your life, who would play your significant other?
I think I'll have to go with Zachary Levi (the title character on the TV show Chuck). He's adorable. And I know for a fact he likes baseball. And from the interviews I've seen, he has that dorky/goofy quality that I seem to like in guys! :)

4. What is currently your favorite song?
Oh wow, I like so many songs, I don't think I can choose just one! :) I've been listening to a lot of Third Day and Jeremy Camp lately, so it will most likely be from one of them! :)

5. Are you saving your money for anything right now? Big or small purchase?
I just got back from my trip to Atlanta (go here for pictures), so that is what I had saved up for. Some friends and I want to go to Graceland, so I guess I should start saving up for that. I also want a big flat screen TV (note: I said, WANT, not NEED). I just can't bring myself to dish out that kind of money. BUT, if someone wanted to buy me one, I would gladly accept it! :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. I hear ya on the TV...I'd like a big flat screen TV too...but most likely my old TV will have to die before I can justify that purchase! :)

  2. Visiting from NFF! My hubs loves our flat panels, now he wants to replace the behemoth we bought 7 years ago with one. He was able to haggle with Best Buy for the last one because it was an open box {display} and the sales guy was certain that his manager wouldn't take the offer, but the manager did. It never hurts to ask. :)

  3. Youngest of 6? Wow, that's a lot of older siblings. :)

  4. Hi Rachel!

    I found your blog on FFF, and am now a follower. Visit me if you get a chance:

    Also, I LOVE Christian music too. Before I started my blog, I covered CCM for various outlets (including my own Christian music website) and got to meet Mac from 3D a few times...GREAT guy! I've got plenty of other stories to share, about other artists I've met, if your ever interested.
