6 more days until the release!!!!! So excited!!!
I want to start off by saying a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who submitted a song in my “Fan Song Contest”.
My reason for holding this contest is because I wanted to give someone the opportunity for their talent to be heard and I hope more signed artists will eventually do the same! =)
Again, thank you to everyone for your hard work and keep chasing your dreams!
Here are a few words from Jeff and the reason for this song…
“This song was inspired by a good friend of mine who was killed in combat in Afghanistan in April of 2006. Until that day, the role and history of the Canadian Armed Forces was intangible to me. Symbolic and proud, but intangible.
November 11, 2006 was the first time I had ever really been connected to our Forces heroic past, dynamic present and important future… and like everything else in my life, I had been unable to express the emotions I had felt – so I wrote “The Call” with the help of my wife Paula and our kids, Tegan and Gabrielle.
It’s kind of funny, but if you ask my children what I do for a living, they would likely say that I get dressed in a suit, go out for lunch and come home in time to make sure the homework and chores are done. They might also say that sometimes, I get to go out and play music for a bunch of people and have a great time… either way, not a bad way to spend a working life.
Shortly after we got word of what happened to my friend, they asked me that if someone could choose to do what I did, why would someone choose to do what soldiers did? Why would someone put themselves in dangers way for others? Why would someone go so far away from the ones they love to protect people they didn’t know? I didn’t have an answer… so we wrote the song.
I still don’t have an answer. But I’m grateful to God that there are people who can answer that question inside themselves and answer the call.”
Peace and God Bless,

As you all know, my TV show premiered on CMT last Sunday. Since I am in Nashville, I had to watch it over webchat with Brian! lol..
I’ll tell ya, I was a nervous wreck all day about this premiere. We’ve been shooting for a couple of months and finally, it was the big day!!!
I wish I was in Canada to actually watch it on TV but, I have a lot of work to do here in Nashville. We’re still filming pieces of the show down here.
I will be returning this Sunday so, I’ll be able to watch episode 2 on my own tv!!! Woo!!
Thank you guys so much for your messages and I’m so glad you guys like it. It means the world to me that you enjoyed it!!!
Episode 2 airs this Sunday @ 9pm on CMT!
Love you all and WE DID IT!!! Just remember, this show would not be possible if you guys hadn’t tuned in to watch my video blogs! =)
