Chris Sligh BLOGS!

And the other Chris, Chris Sligh (and his wife, Sarah) moved to Franklin, TN. From his blog (pic with Kevin Max of dc talk):

Well, life has changed considerably. Sarah and I are in Nashville…well, Franklin…and enjoying life. We love our new house. We love our new neighborhood. We love our new life. It’s awesome.

Next week, I’m writing with a guy named Chris Eaton who has written number 1 hits on both the CCM side of things and the mainstream side of things. Wednesday I’m writing with Kevin Max. Over the next coupla weeks, I get to write with songwriting heroes like Tony Wood, Chris Rodriguez and many many more. It looks like we are going to be starting the album around November 1.

The record will have cross-over appeal, rather than just strictly Christian:

I’m also excited because over the last week or so, we’ve kind of moved the direction of the record from a straight up Christian record to making a crossover-type record, which is exciting for me from an artistic standpoint. On Tuesday, the producer who is producing most of the record (Brown Bannister) and I are getting together to choose the 5-6 songs that are definites for the album and then choosing 7-8 more that are possibles. Then as I write between now and November 1, we’ll figure out what songs are the best 12-13 to make the record.

Chris is co-writing with Chris Eaton:

Chris is a Brit who was signed in the 80’s and 90’s to Reunion Records (Smitty’s label), and has been a successful songwriter for a long time (he wrote a huge hit for Jaci Valasquez in “God So Loved the World”). Brown hooked me up with Chris as my first co-write session. And I’m glad he did.

And, the song he recorded recently with Kevin Max is now streaming on the artist’s My Space. Check it out. The chorus is very catchy.
