My Favorite Hymn - How Great Thou Art

My Favorite Hymn – How Great Thou Art

I love when I hear the hymn “How Great Thou Art” in church during mass. I feel connected to the Almighty, ever thankful for what He has given us in this life. I truly believe We are his vessel.

Carrie Underwood and Vince Gil deliver reverence to God in this moving rendition of “How Great Thou Art”. I saw this performance on CBS on April 22nd in 2011. It always moves me to tears of joy and beyond.

In Memory of Brian Farmer

In Memory of Brian Farmer

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Brian Farmer. To me he will always be the heart and soul of Gov’t. Mule.

I have two videos I want to share with about Brian.

The first is a video of Brian Farmer participating with…
