Music Monday: CD Giveaway!

This is my first ever giveaway on this blog.  If all goes well, I will likely do more in the future (with things besides music).  So, without further ado, let's get down to business.

Most of you probably have no idea who Tim Stop is (unless you've been reading my blog, and for that, I blow kisses in your general direction). It's truly a shame that more people don't know about him.  I want to change that.  

On Friday, I received my copy of the brand new Tim Stop CD, "Songs of Separation." 

It is, in one word, - wonderful.  The infectious melodies, the honest lyrics, the incredible guitar/piano solos -- it has everything I've come to expect from Tim after seeing multiple shows (I won't tell you exactly how many).  It's an incredible CD, and it's well worth the year-plus I've waited for it. I've practically worn out my copy of his earlier work "The Long Drive Home."  I have a feeling I'll be doing the same with this CD, which is sure to be a staple in my car, office, ipod, etc. until the next one is released.  Is it clear how much I love this CD?  Because I do.  Oh, and have I mentioned that the CD hasn't yet been publicly released?

My mom always said it's nice to share. And I have multiple copies of the CD (I bought them ... he hasn't taken a financial hit in this giveaway), so I'm ready to share.  I have decided to give away one copy of "Songs of Separation" to a music-loving reader.   The winner will also get a $10 itunes gift card, so you can buy Tim's first album or any other music you prefer.

Yes!  Free music!  Who doesn't love that?

But there is a catch.  You have to do a little homework first.  Here's how you can enter the drawing:

1. Like Tim Stop on facebook.  Come back and tell me you did that.
2. Go to his web site and listen to the songs he's put up for sample.  Come back and comment to me which one you like best.
3. Use twitter to broadcast the following line -- "I can't wait to hear the new 'Songs of Separation' CD from @timstop24. I hope @thebestmicah picks me -"  Then come back here and tell me in a comment that you did this.

Do one or do all three.  Your choice.  How bad do you want it?

You have until 10 p.m. CST on Sunday, Sept. 25 to enter.  I'll use a random number generator to choose the winner next Monday.


  1. I don't have facebook or twitter or else I would do those things. I liked Whisper in the Wind though a very good song... BTW I for one do read your blog

  2. I like "Unconditional" the best. Totally speaks to me - I've been there.
