Today, June 9, 2020 marks the release date of my new single "What Gives Me the Right." A song for these crazy times, and all the time. My hope is that it helps us to think about how we think about others and other's situations.
I want to thank my co-writer Rob Matson, not only for the co-write, but also for doing the mixing and mastering of many tracks coming in from different places (all the vocals were done in my bedroom closet). And a big thank you to Smith Curry in Nashville and his band of merry musicians for all the amazing instrumental tracks. So much great music to choose from. To my Whiskey Pass bandmates, Jim Goodkind and Steven Gregory for all their helpful musical thoughts and ideas that helped round out the song. And a special thank you to my amazing granddaughter Lyric, who did background vocals for me, a first for her, and she was great. And to my husband Bob, who was with me every step of the way on this, and had such great insights for the song, I love you, and I love that we do this together.
It takes a village to make a song come to life, and in this case a virtual village due to sheltering in place. Thank goodness for digital.
All the best to all of you. I hope you are all safe and healthy.

It's the holidays again. I'm not sure where this year has gone, but it sure has gone FAST. Whiskey Pass will be celebrating the holidays at the Cats Tavern and Restaurant on Friday Dec. 20, 2019, 8 - 11pm. We'll also be celebrating our lead guitarist Jim's birthday - moving into a new decade. It would be great to see any of my local N1M friends at the gig, so we can raise a glass and celebrate.
THANK YOU to every single one of you for supporting me and my music. I love hearing from you, and I want you to know I am currently working on two new songs that should be out in January 2020. My wish to you all is for a joyous holiday season and a VERY happy new year. Let's make 2020 ROCK!!
Hello to all my friends at N1M. I hope your holiday season is going merrily along. May all the blessings of the holiday season find you, and bring you joy. And I hope you'll take time to find a way to be an Everyday Hero for someone around you that may be less fortunate.
And if you have a chance, I hope you'll take a listen and enjoy my two Christmas songs: Night Is Falling is my original song, and was written for my Mom, who was all things Christmas. And Mary Did You Know, is a favorite, so I had to record that one. :0)
Cheers to a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year.
Singer/Songwriter/Recording Artist/Lead Singer for Whiskey Pass
Today marks day #1 of our push promotion of Christine VanHoy's new single release "Everyday Hero" featuring Whiskey Pass bandmates Steven Gregory (duet vocals) and Jim Goodkind on lead guitar. This song is already climbing the Charts on the Independent Music Network, and came in last week (after 3 weeks on the chart) at #10. It is posted here, N1M, and if you're interested in purchasing it, go to CDBaby.
I hope you like it, and tell all your friends, and maybe even request it on your favorite Country Radio station. It's available to Radio on Airplay Access. :0) Have a GREAT holiday season all!
Musically yours, Christine
