Well it sucks trying to fit all these thank yous on such a small piece of paper but I will do my best, so here goes … (ahem) I would like to thank my parents for doing it, the red wine, Burt Bacharach, candelight, the egg for splitting so I didn’t have to be the lead singer … I want to thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ for giving me all of these opportunities. Mom, Sarah, and Josh – thanx for all your sacrifices and support. You guys always make me feel proud to be a part of this family. Joel I don’t tell you this enough but I love you, you’ve always been my best friend, and you always will be, you’re the most talented, caring person I have ever met. I think you got the better half of the egg. Aaron, Paul and lil Billy – thanx for being my best friends, you guys are my little brothers and I know we’re gonna be boys for life, to the rest of my family and friends, and all the family and friends of the other guys, thanx for all the support and love. Keep representin’ GC ‘cause you know we’re representing you.
First I would like to thank my heavenly Father, and Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is always faithful even when I am not. Thank you Lord for your understanding and patience. Mom, Josh and Sarah thank you for your neverending support and sacrifice. Benji, you know me better than anyone, you are my best firend, and without you I’d be incomplete. Thanx for being there every moment. Billy, Paul and Aaron – you guys are my brothers too and there is no one I’d rather be doing this with. So many good times and this is just the beginning. Thank you to all my friends and family. The MD, VA, D.C. area. Naptown and Waldorf. To all the GC fans, you are the lifehood of GC.
I would like to start off by thanking God, without him none of this would be possible. Next I would like to thank my Dad. He taught me everything I know. Thank you to my Mom for always being there for me. My brothers, Danny and Ryan and my little sister Rachel. My Grandparents, Uncle Scotty, Grandma Cutter. I wanna thank all my family and extended family for all of their support over the years. I wanna thank Gutherie, The Sagers, The Kalbers, and Jesi for believing in me. Thanks to Joey Hoffman, and my friends who helped us get where we are. Now, last but not least I would like to thank U.
First and foremost I would like to thank God, our heavenly Father who has blessed me with all my talents and opportunities that have made up my life, my parents, my sister Sarah, Steve for the generous practice space, and all of my family and extended family for all their support over the years, Benji, Joel, Aaron and Paul for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime and for being more than my best friends but my brothers, J.D. Baudean and Steve Sievers for giving me my start as a musician and helping me reach where I am now. Rick Jewer for being my inspiration to get where I am today, all of my true friends who have believed in me since day 1 (you know who you are!), and probably the most important of all the fans for being so supportive of our music, this record is for you guys! Anyone who has been genuinely good to me and to anyone I forgot, sorry …
God, My Family – Mom, Dad, PJ, Cindy, Teresa, Paul and my Grandparents, My Friends who supported me – Tim, Kloak, Matt, Napey, Jason, Aaron, Aaron’s Family, Billy’s Family and the twins’ family – thank you.
A&R: David Massey.
