Brand New Update!!! Brooke shares “Cherry Lane” ~Sung by Brooke and David Archuleta
This guy, I can’t tell you the love and respect I have for him and his absolutely incredible talent which can only be surpassed by his character. Maybe he wins the #bestpersonIknow hashtag award. I’ve known him for years now since our Idol days, and have watched him grow from a shy teenage heart throb into such a great dude with such a solid sense of himself, God and all that is important in life. Since the return of his mission we’ve seen each other for a quick minute but have talked several times. Every one wants a piece of him, I knew people were beating down his door with requests and opportunities to lend his golden pipes so I was apprehensive at first to even ask him to do this, as a friend I try not to ask for anything 🙂 But given the nature of the project I figured it was worth asking, so I picked up the phone and gave him a call and told him about the cause. With in a few days he responded with an enthusiastic yes! Such great news! It just so happened that we would both be in Nashville at the same time, this in itself is a miracle.
So he came to Daniel Tashian’s studio on a Friday and the three of us wrote and recorded “Cherry Lane”, one of the happiest songs of the whole record…. stylistically it probably leans a bit more my direction with it’s throw back vibe, but the soothing sound of his voice on this call and answer chorus is what makes it completely magical. You don’t understand, his pitch perfect tone is at such a world class level, and it’s baffling, and yeah, nerve racking to even have my voice on the same track. Seriously, I get a tear whenever I hear him sing. Who doesn’t?! Anywho, “Cherry Lane” is a song for us grown ups, it was that first street I grew up on, it represents a simpler happy time and place when we’d “rather stay outside and play than stare down at the phone all day”. It’s emotional too though, David’s voice beckoning “we could go back, we could go back to where we were”. Thanks David for being a part of this. Also, funny side note, I was so excited that I called my parents from Nashville to tell them about the song the next day, and my mom said “oh honey, the street was actually called “cheery lynn”…. haha, ah well, cherry lane/ cheery lynn, tomato /tomahto close enough 😉
We’ve reached over 60% of our goal! Please help spread the word and get us over the hump!
And head over to consider making a pledge and receiving this lovely cd!!
I love this duet … That is all. 🙂

Brooke White Shares “Baby Bloom” With Deana Carter from “Never Grow up”
If you remember the huge country hits like “Strawberry Wine” or “We Danced Anyway” then you’ll remember the legendary Deana Carter. We met for the first time about 4 years ago in a songwriting session. We clicked right away, had a good long chat about everything, wrote a solid song and became fast friends and soul sisters. I very much admire and respect the legacy she’s built around her incredible gift of both singing and songwriting. I look to her as a mentor, she has a heart of gold and didn’t hesitate to say yes when I asked her to be a part of this project. “Baby Bloom” is the first song that was written and recorded for the record, and it set the bar rather high, or should I say branch 😉 This song is written from the perspective of a wise tree talking to a young one, advising them to love every season and bloom where your planted. I was so humbled to sit in a room with Deana and Chris Seefried (whom also sings/produces and plays on the track) and write this mighty little song alongside them and just soak up their seasoned talent and musical wisdom. It was such a reminder that I have a ways to “grow” to reach such great heights.
We’ve reached over 50% of our goal! We’re hoping to reach our goal by Friday so we can deliver a digital download to everyone to enjoy over the holidays! Please spread the word!
BROOKE HAS NOW REACHED 61% of her PLEDGEMUSIC GOAL with 15 days to go!!!! If you’d like to make a pledge and “pre-purchase” the cd and/or one of the incentives CLICK HERE !!

CFTH Final Track~ Melodies Of Christmas
Today we finish up our celebration of live performances of tracks from David’s “Christmas From The Heart” cd with Melodies Of Christmas. ~From Songfacts :
This song, which was written by Archuleta and Z. Picante, is the lone original track on the 2008 American Idol runner-up’s first seasonal album, Christmas From The Heart. Archuleta told MTV News that working on an original Xmas tune came naturally. “It all happened so fast that I didn’t really think about it!” he said. “I mean, that was the last song we worked on and recorded. And it was all pretty much a rush.”
One of the backing vocalists is American Idol Season 9 contestant, David Osmond.
Today’s feature of Melodies of Christmas is from 3 years ago today when David performed in Anaheim. The vid is “close up” and wonderful! It was recorded by Naree! 🙂
