Wow! Whatta fantastic start for our "Blue Jade" project! We've reached the 22% mark after only 72 hours!

Thank you everyone for your pledges to help lift this recording to the finish line. In these difficult times, I know personally that every dollar matters. Your generosity is VERY much appreciated and we are all very grateful to you for your support!

PROJECT NEWS: We are proud to announce that red-hot steel guitarist Randle Currie -- the longtime session and road player with Brad Paisley -- has joined forces with us and will record a track for this album. Randle is a gentlemen and an extraordinarily great player; we thank him for coming onboard.

I'll keep you posted as we progress towards the finish line. There is a beautiful backstory to this album that I will share with all of you someday. In the meantime, thank you for your interest, support and generous pledge! Please forward, like, share and tweet this special project to anyone you think might like it!

sincerely,

Steve Fishell
