Have a Good Night States Christmas


I am so psyched about my friends at Good Night States being honored as the number 1 local band in Pittsburgh by 91.3 WYEP. They also just released a free Christmas Song. Steve's voice has the perfect rasp for a Christmas song. The words are sweet but somehow, he takes the edge off the sacharin stuff that so often clings to Christmas.

Thinking About Heaven at Christmas- I Miss Ya All

I am not a big fan of "new country." I like the old guys- hank williams and Johnny Cash. However, when my sis-in-law, Celeste told me to listen to Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton (I like Dolly) singing HWne I Get Where I am Going, I checked it out. Wow, what a powerful song.

When I get where I'm goin'
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

2nd Verse

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop 'a rain

Chorus

Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
Don't cry for me down here

3rd Verse

I'm gonna walk with my Grandaddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I've missed him
Every minute since he left
And then I'll hug his neck

(Repeat Chorus)
