Songwriting takes time!

So David told us yesterday.  It was great to hear an update on the process from David.  Here is the original tweet, and some of the responses to him from many of you.  It was clear, this was a perfectly placed and timed tweet!

You are too funny @_slowdownsugar.

And a (later) response from Stephanie Mabey.  Looks like a little more work to do.

I never understood how a song could be written in only one day; seems like a fast pace to me.  Here’s  a pic of a hard working team (Dustin, Stephanie, David) a few months ago.

Check out Stephanie’s Homepage and snippets from her “Wake Up Dreaming” CD here.  She really has an awesome voice.

More Dream Setlists

Mary Dee already put her own visuals together!  Awesome!

In her words:  “Wow! Creating a dream Setlist for a David concert was harder than I thought. So many beautiful songs that I didn’t want to leave out  Who’s coming to this make-believe concert with me?”

Another reminder of this Friday event!

Talking about dreaming, loved this posted on Elena’s FB timeline.  A very motivational message, no matter what your age!

And Closing With …

From Mary Dee’s list, here is Wait from the MKOC Tour.  This vid was taken my me, probably too close and a bad angle, and I inadvertently cut David’s head off a few times.  But acoustics are not bad, and boy, can this young man saaaannnng, headless or not.

If this voice isn’t a reason to plan a road trip to Cedar City or Rexburg, I don’t know what is.

David sings on Nashville Tribute Band Album and New Ascap Entry!!!  Available for Pre-Order

Woohoo!  It started with this!  As found by @GrayAAA today!

new ascap entry

David is listed as a “songwriter”.

As songwriters complete their songs, they are registered on ASCAP so I suspect there may be even more in future months!   We have profiled Jason Deere and The Trumans in the past here on FOD.

More on Jason Deere in a recent post here

More on Dan Truman here

This might explain the picture here!

Those Dream Setlists!

Thanks to all of you for considering this task

First one is from Linda!

And from Kayli Bossard on Facebook:

kalie

“Anodrlurker” put a multi-part setlist together.  Very creative!  This is going to be a long concert, but there is nothing wrong with that:)

The first set consists of songs from David’s CDs:

Slide1

The second are all covers, some interesting picks!

Slide2

And lastly, a few songs for a Christmas set!

Slide3

Like I did yesterday, let me take one of these selections and post a performance for you all to enjoy.    Somebody Out There just spoke to me today :)   That “Oh, okay” at 2:10. Just love this!   Nostalgic.

Thank you so much Tina for capturing the randomness and golden performance. Credit:  YouCanCallMeTina

Sorry, folks, RL smacking me hard this weekend.   Sorry, gotta post and run!   I’ll be back for the “Welcome to David’s favourite season ~ fall (we think)” post tomorrow and a FRIDAY TRENDING reminder!    What do you like best about the change in seasons, for those who experience this?   Tell us in comments!

Have a good start to the week!  Celebrate the last hours of summer!
