After years of talking about a potential project of old hymns and gospel songs, we are so happy to announce that we’ll finally be releasing that collection in April, 2010, "Traditions" CD. We promise you, this is the ultimate Coachmen “roots” CD! Webster’s defines “tradition” as a specific practice of long standing. Songs like these represent the foundation for our music, and their message and the culture in which we learned them has remained core to the values by which we live. Simply said, these songs represent our specific practice of long standing. While the core of the CD is a collection of our favorite old hymns and gospel songs (yes, we voted on them!), we also included 2 bonus songs which are favorites from our current live program, specifically our version of the Mac Davis classic “I Believe in Music”, and the comical Noah’s Ark translation “Didn’t It Rain.” The collection is available here at our online store, at our concerts, at Crossroads Music in Staunton and Waynesboro, and at other select retail locations throughout the Shenandoah Valley. Throughout 2011, the songs of “Traditions” will comprise a signification portion of our live program.
2011 marks Chris’ first solo venture with the release of “All Together Now”, a collection for children. Originally intended as a gift to his young kids, the project is comprised of songs designed to sing along with, to dance to, to educate, to express feelings, and to teach life lessons. Further, while the collection includes some of Chris’ all-time favorite children songs, it also includes originals stemming from his day-to-day experiences. Songs about getting kids to clean up their messes, searching the house for his son’s seahorse “lovee”, and teaching the ABC’s by making soup are just a few of the experiences Chris shares from his family life.
