Milestones is shipping now!

Hi everyone - 

I mailed out the first batch of Kickstarter rewards on Monday, and then another big batch yesterday. If you pledged only for a box-set, yours is on the way. If you pledged for a box-set and another item (like a pocket knife, ball cap, etc.) it will be another day or two before I can ship those - packaging is tricky. I am sending everything through the USPS via priority mail. 

We got the first review of Milestones a few days ago - its a good one. You can read it here: http://openrecordsmusic.com/pdfs/AmericanSongwriter.pdf.

Below is a picture of the shipment. I didnt realize how big it was and told the semi-truck to come to my house. Ha! This is 10,000 pounds of Watson Family music - my living room would have collapsed. The sets are now in a local storage facility, and now begins the process of sharing 4500 sets with the rest of the world. 

I will be so eager to hear your thoughts about Milestones and I will pass along any message you may have for Nancy, too. 

Thank you so much for helping make Milestones a reality!

      Hello Roy - I still have not received a Certificate of Authenticity. Contact via email is not working.

      I also need Roy to contact me about my DOC AND CHET OUT OF PRINT 45.

      When/how do we get the MP3 audio outtakes that were offered for the $30 pledge?

      Received my DOC & CHET ATKINS OUT OF PRINT 45 but there was no Certificate of Authenticity. I have not been able to contact Roy through email or phone number. Help!
