Long Time Gone....

Posted Feb 24th 2010, 01:30 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey y'all!
Ok...a great song, and a fact that it's been WAY too long since I wrote an update to what's going on around here. Things have been in hyperdrive since the year
started and we're not likely to see a lot of breaks anytime soon.
January we started with the celebration of Kelly's "Jesus" birthday. Since she's 33...she feels like this is her year for greatness! I agree with her. We were
honored to be asked back to the writers...

Happy New Year...and here we go!

Posted Jan 6th 2010, 10:17 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey y'all!
Kelly and I hope that your Christmas and New Years celebrations were the best ever. We had a great time with family and friends,
and were able to get some rest in preparation for an incredible 2010. We pray that your year is blessed beyond measure, and that
you experience God in such a way this year, that you'll not be able to contain yourself. 2010 is the year for radical revival! Take
a Stand and let the...

Let there be peace on earth...

Hey there folks!
It's been a while since the last update. We've been on the road almost non-stop to include a trip to Kentucky (it is the promised land, you know) for a
concert with The Roarks in Harlan. Both Paul Roark and I are from Harlan, so it was a nice treat. The attendance was less than hoped..but we were competing
against BOTH the county and city high school football teams being in the state playoffs! Still, we had...

If You Want To Hear God Laugh....

Hey there folks!
Sad to report that we can officially say fall is here. Even more sad is the fact that we've seemed to skip right over fall and into an early ick! I love seasons,
but I just prefer that the good ones hang around a bit longer.
We've been just crazy busy these past few weeks. The NQC 'jet lag' has finally let up and we're into full swing Branson GMC mode! There are several
large concerts we're working...

Special Announcement - Take A Stand!

Posted Oct 15th 2009, 10:21 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey there folks!
Yes..I know you just heard from me yesterday. But I've got some very special news that I needed to share with you guys.
Several months ago I told you about my Easter Sunday morning experience. While getting ready for service that morning and watching the news, I really felt
impressed that I needed to release "Take A Stand" to radio because the message needed to be heard. Even though the song wasn't the typical 'radio' style song,

Change is in the air....

Posted Sep 23rd 2009, 12:41 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey there folks!
We just got home from a 12 day road trip and I'm still trying to catch up on everything. While I love being out...spending that much time on a bus is
hard on anybody. But we had great times, great services...and God just continues to amaze me in all He does.
After a couple of dates week before last with The Blackwood Quartet, we were in Hammond, Indiana for an anniversary service. We had a great time with...

I'm sick.....

Posted Sep 3rd 2009, 06:27 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey there folks!
Ok...expect this NOT to be one of my typical newsletters. I'm not going to tell you about the dates we're doing or where we're going. I'm not going to
talk about the radio single or even give you the link to write ENLIGHTEN AND REQUEST TAKE A STAND (ok..couldn't pass that one up).
This is a different kind of newsletter.
I'm sick. I'm sick beyond belief about some things that are going on around me. I'm sick of...

Keep on running...

Posted Sep 1st 2009, 12:02 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey there folks!
I hope that everyone is having a great first day of September. It's hard to believe that August is gone..and soon our summer will be too. We've been
seeing very cool temperatures here in Illinois this past couple of weeks. I told someone the other day that if this global warming keeps up, I'm going
to freeze to death!
Things have been very busy these last couple of weeks. We've set several new dates all the way out...

Hey there folks!
I hope that everyone is having a great summer. We've been incredibly busy since the Branson event, and we're already very engaged in Branson 2010! It's going to be even
bigger and better than 2009, so get ready! Just click HERE to get the info you need
to be a part! More to come on that...
This is a busy time of year for us. We're gearing up for my annual homecoming event this weekend. The Jay Stone...

The Cross Has Won, Again...

Posted Jul 23rd 2009, 12:27 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey y'all!
We are back from a fantastic week in Branson at the Branson Gospel Music Convention! This is
the 'official' update, so get comfy, grab a cold drink, and HANG ON!
But first...a message from our sponsors. :) Did want to get in that we've added several new dates to the schedule...and I'm looking for several more.
Please check with your local churches and send them to my web site. I'd love to come and share the message of hope,...

That Day Is Almost Here!

Posted Jul 11th 2009, 01:45 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey there folks...yep, 2 updates in 1 week....got to be some sort of record!
It's TIME! That day we've dreamed of for so long...ok, yes I know it's a song and not about the Branson Gospel Music Convention! But that
day is almost here. We pull out for Branson on Sunday morning with a short stop in Springfield to visit our friends at KWFC Radio for a quick interview.
We should be at the site by 7pm or so, and...

Oh yes...I've been changed!

Posted Jul 6th 2009, 11:26 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

It's been several weeks since I've updated you folks. I can only blame that on all the activity and work that's just had us slammed with life things,
family things...oh, and that little convention coming up next week know as The Branson Gospel Music
Before we get into that...I wanted to let you know that I'm expecting results in a couple of weeks on the new single "Take A Stand". It's amazing how
God is opening some doors...

A Divine Hair Appointment....

Hey folks....
OK...so I don't know if this is a real story or not. It may be one of those internet stories that start out as guppies and end up as whales...but it
still tells a good story.
For those of you who do not know Beth Moore, she is an outstanding Bible teacher, writer of Bible studies, and is a married mother of two daughters.
This is one of her experiences:

Send A Great Revival!

Posted May 7th 2009, 01:17 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey there folks,
We've just wrapped up a great revival at Fellowship Baptist Church in Chicago Heights, IL. Evangelist Jim Valasquez from Santa Fe was an anointed
speaker and we saw 8 people accept Jesus in their lives! It's amazing how the simple message of salvation will break down even the most resistant
hearts. We had a great time with Bro. Jim..and we're planning a joint set of services out in the Santa Fe area for late October. More to...

Time To Take A Stand

Posted Apr 22nd 2009, 11:43 by Rod Burton Music on Christian Living

Hey there folks...well, it's really happened. Just when I'd almost given up...just when I was about to throw in the towel...spring really has arrived
here in Illinois! Yep...you heard it here first, it's going to be in the 70's tomorrow...then the 80's. The long range forecast shows nothing lower than
about 60 for the next couple of weeks...so time to kick off the shoes and have a party!
Just a couple of quick notes for you this week. First we'll...
