Hi Folks This week on GIVE ME A BREAK RADIO We have sweet sweet harmonies of The Hammond Brothers Dale Hammond & Gale Hammond.
Also opening song by Nashville’s very own Chris Gantry fresh off the morning heart… I CRY QUIETLY.
“I dedicate this song to the spirit of reconciliation that this world so badly needs in this time of upheaval,.Sometime tough mandates are needed either to curb a harsh reality or to make a statement that change is a prerequisite to chaos, but essentially it’s always the spirit of gentility, cooperation, diplomacy, and peace that crumbles mountains of disharmony to dust,.I dedicate this song to Kris Kristofferson whose music has always been the path of the Olive Branch.” Chris Gantry

Chris Gantry “You can’t rope and tie Art like you do a steer or a horse,.When your desire and intent to create something becomes unbearable, something beauteous, ravishing, and sumptuous, suddenly, you might see something shadowy peeking out from behind a building, or a corner of a dark room,.something timorous and reticent at first, but then the more you stalk this phantom figure, the more daring it becomes until at a precise moment it will move out into the open of your periphery of desire. In other words, through your insatiable hunger to create something, you have lured a piece of raw art out into the open and drawn it into your heart; and like a homeless dog or cat, it wants and needs to be loved on, affection bestowed on it with unceasing petting and cuddling..The very thing you end up creating is in itself alive, but etheric and unformed,. it has violation,.it is sentient,.Then, adding yourself into the mixture gives it it’s full blown fulfillment of life,.it is now “created” in the full sense of the word, much like a seed turns into a beautiful flower.,,Amazing stuff,.we all have a little bit of Gods co- creating talents. This makes us magical creatures.”
