Andrew Peterson's Counting Stars CD

If you haven’t heard of Andrew Peterson you will over the next several months. Not only is he a recording artist, he’s also an author (North! Or Be Eaten!). His newest release comes out today, July 27, 2010 (also my daughter’s birthday!).
Listening to his new CD Counting Stars, I am reminded of Rich Mullins (who is with the Lord) and Chris Rice, two artist whom I love. If you like music from the 70’s you might compare him to Cat Stevens. He’s a wonderful story teller!
Andrew’s CD is very soothing and meaningful. The lyrics go straight to the heart and leave an imprint of the Lord. Is it wrong to want to go outside and just dance unhindered to this music? I mean, the lyrics make me reflect on this beautiful life and at the same time wish I were a little girl twirling in a field of daisies. Check out this YouTube video of Dancing in the Minefields.

Don't miss our live broadcast with Andrew Peterson tonight at 8/7c on HearItFirst.com/Live!  He'll be playing all the songs from his new album, Counting Stars (which you can hear right now).  See video interviews (and enter to win an Andrew Peterson Prize pack) on HearItFirst.com/AndrewPeterson.
