Folks from the South

DA Southern Hospitality

I love the A-Ok emoji!  Seems David was headed somewhere (perhaps back home to Utah?) when he encountered some Southern Hospitality along the way – though I can’t imagine anyone being anything but hospitable if they met up with David!

The Idol Tour visited several Southern States, and while David was there, he took some time to film his very first music video – Crush!  Filmed at Wynn’s Pond in Coweta County, Georgia, David and a cast of lucky teens celebrate the end of summer at a Lake house before returning to school.

That’s Pretty Dang Exciting!

David filmed a vlog “Behind the Scenes” on the set of Crush!  He has nothing but good things to say about the crowd that attended the Idol Tour show the previous night – that Southern Hospitality shining through!

Entertainment Tonight (ET) also filmed a “Behind the Scenes” episode which was aired on national TV!  I remember watching it and being so excited for David and his future music career!

And with over 44 million views to date - Crush has once again put Wynn’s Pond on the map.  This location was also used in the Reese Witherspoon movie Sweet Home Alabama - a sweet southern romantic comedy that I watch every chance I get!  Here’s a trailer from the movie that features Wynn’s Pond!

Ok so Crush has over 44 million views – how about we give it a few more!  Maybe get it to 45 million!

Here’s a slideshow of pics from the filming of Crush!  Coweta County, Georgia is beautiful!

Minnesota Nice 

There’s also hospitality a little farther north!  Joanie remembered David mentioning “Minnesota Nice” in an interview he did at the Mall of America right before his COS book signing.

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 11.28.51 PM

Glorious sits at #2 from the last cycle, but going into the new cycle, Glorious has fallen to #3 behind the new video from 5 Seconds of Summer and of course Taylor Swift is still sitting pretty at #1.

Let’s rally and vote Glorious to #1 where it belongs!

Birthday Card Extension!

Shelley has given us a reprieve!  She has decided to leave David’s birthday card open for a few more days to give all Archies a chance to send their special birthday wishes to David.  Like in previous years, Shelley will be creating a birthday book for David from the sentiments in the card.  Attach a photo if you want David to see who’s sending the birthday greetings!

A Tweet to go with a Quote~

Our quote today can spark many individual answers about what makes (you) feel alive. Many David Archuleta fans could easily share that David’s music makes them feel alive. When I think of David and what he’s shared with us over the years, I can imagine him answering with things like faith, family, friends, and…MUSIC! We have witnessed him on stage become energized and ALIVE as he shares himself in his music. Below is one of my favorite tweets from David re: how music makes him feel~ how music seems to make him feel alive as well.

Hope you enjoyed the musical moments and mini concert today! David’s music sure has a way of bringing me to life…especially on a Monday! I’m afraid my Monday post (covering for Mary Lou who’s enjoying life as a Bahama mama for a bit longer) can’t quite compare, but thanks so much for joining me today! Looking forward to an Archurrific week. In fact, looking forward to a GLORIOUS week! <—See what I just did there? ;) Be sure to sign David’s card as well as send Shelley any fan group pics you want to share from this past year. Kalei will be here tomorrow and I’ll be back on Wednesday!
