*ALBUM NOTES* Sunshine - Shine! Shine!! Shine!!! - Melody Dawn Records - Hollywood, CA 1. Rise & Shine For Jesus Produced & Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith & 'Moon' Clifford D. Garrow Jr. (c)2009,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI All the kids LOVE this song and they were instantly singing along. We're gonna have a version of the kids singing it too. If teenager approval and tiny toddlers like it too, it could be a sign it's gonna be a big smash hit. It's definitely anointed! Recorded at Hot Trax Studio / The Jesus Christ Fan Club - Goodlettsville, TN Contemporary Christian Pop/Country 2. Infinity & Beyond Written By 'Sunshine' (c)2009,2010 Melody Lady Music BMI - Produced By 'Moon' I wrote this from the heart. I adore the bliss of true love. Dedicated to my niece Danielle at her wedding to David in Ca. Exceptional acoustic guitar picking by 'Moon' that makes the song twinkle like the stars in the sky. Recorded at Hot Trax Studio / The Jesus Christ Fan Club, Vocals tracked at Buck's Place - Hendersonville, TN Contemporary Pop/Country 3. Star Of Hope (Christmas song) Written & Produced By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith & 'Moon' Clifford D. Garrow(c)2009,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI God inspired me right from scripture and this song is anointed and blessed by God! I sense the presence of the Holy Spirit through the powerful conviction and emotional dynamics both vocally and musically. This song makes 'Shine! Shine!! Shine!!!', really Shine! Destined to be a classic. We need to find a famous Christian artist to sing this. Any suggestions? Recorded at Hot Trax Studio / The Jesus Christ Fan Club - Goodlettsville, TN Contemporary Christian Pop/Country - Gospel Country/Rock 4. I've Got The Victory In Jesus Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith (c)2000,2010 Melody Lady Music BMI - Produced By 'Sunshine' & 'Moon' I wrote this for the kids when they were little. They're not so little now. All 3 are taller than me! (Southern home cooking) I was claiming the victory in Jesus after going through the tornado that hit our house and studio. When we use our faith, we can look beyond the struggle and thank God for everything we go through. All things come together for good to those who love the Lord. Live, this has always been a crowd pleaser. Even grandma's and grandpa's are dancing for Jesus. Recorded at Hot Trax Studio / The Jesus Christ Fan Club - Goodlettsville, TN Gospel Country/Rock - Contemporary Christian Pop/Country 5. You Watch Over Me Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith & 'Moon' Clifford D. Garrow (c)2004,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI - Produced By 'Moon' The Bible inspired my lyrics. My lyrics inspired 'Moon' to play this beautiful acoustic part. His guitar inspired my melody. We are co-writing all our songs with God. Give God the glory. A collaborative magic! Recorded at our house - Smiley Creek Studio - Ridgetop, TN Contemporary Christian 6. Praise His Holy Name Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith (c)2006,2010 Melody Lady Music BMI - Produced By 'Moon' 'Moon' wrote a longer arrangement for live. This is the edited version. I love praise and worship! You can't praise God too much! This is a fun song that brings out the giggly child-like joy in everyone's heart. I giggle every time I hear 'Moon's' solo and we have a good time vamping back and forth. Everyone is happy and God is the reason. God gives us all the joy! Recorded at our house - Goodlettsville TN Gospel/Country Praise & Worship 7. Jesus Love You and I Do too Written By 'Moon' Clifford D. Garrow Jr., 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith, Michael B. Ware, Bill Seighman, David E. Cole II & Brandon H.J. Cole (c)1995,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI (alternate title 'Make A Little More' Red Hot Trax BMI) Produced By 'Sunshine' & 'Moon' 15 years of dedicated love brought us to this final version. We love because Jesus first loved us. Jesus says we should love one another. It is the greatest commandment. I want you to know that I have a river of love flowing through me and I have an endless supply. The blessing inside of me is more than just my eternal salvation rising up within me. It is a river of living water. You can have it too. The river flows for anyone who needs it. From Jesus to me and from me to you. Jesus loves you and I do too! Forever and ever. Amen Recorded at Hot Trax Studio - Nashville, TN Vocals tracked at Buck's Place - Hendersonville, TN Contemporary Christian Country/Pop 8. God's Eternal Plan Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smiith, 'Moon' Clifford D. Garrow & Michael B. Ware (c)2008,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI - Produced By 'Moon', 'Sunshine' & 'Cowboy' 'Moon' said he liked my bass playing on this one best. I said i liked his lead guitar the best on this one. Then, 'Cowboy' Eddie Long did his steel part and showed us both out. Way to go 'Cowboy' you are the 'shizzbang' and the 'whole ball of wax' (I don't know what that means but Moon always says it). No, seriously 'Cowboy' you are immensely blessed and extremely talented and we are honored when you play music with us. It's all part of God's Eternal Plan. Recorded at Hot Trax Studio / The Jesus Christ Fan Club - Goodlettsville, TN Country/Gospel 9. He'll turn Your Life Around Written & Produced By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith & 'Moon' Clifford D. Garrow Jr. (c)2004,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI God really will turn your life around. Some things in our life are instant revelation, others develop with time as we study God's word and he takes us through our spiritual growth in his time. But his time is different than ours and we learn to be patient. His plans are bigger than ours so we have to just let go and let God. Be obedient to his word, serve the Lord with our talents, praise and thank him everyday. We must stay in his will. Let Jesus in your life. Let Jesus love inside. Recorded at our house - Smiley Creek Studio - Ridgetop, TN Contemporary Christian Country/R&B Gospel 10. Holy Spirit Make Yourself At Home Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith & 'Moon' Clifford D. Garrow (c)2006,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI Produced By 'Sunshine', 'Moon' & 'Cowboy' The Holy spirit ascended like a dove. We are comforted and given guidance by the Holy Spirit until Jesus comes back. Make the Holy Spirit welcome in your home and in your prayers and in your Bible study. Be Baptized in the name of Jesus and be born again. Jesus wants to be our best friend and the Holy Spirit will bring us the healing power of God. 'Cowboy's' elegant steel parts are moving enough to invite the Holy Spirit even with out the lyrics. We are so blessed!! Recorded at Hot Trax Studio / The Jesus Christ Fan Club - Goodlettsville, TN Contemporary Christian Country/Pop 11. Holy Ghost Revival Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith (c)2004,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI - Produced By 'Moon' It's a bold message when you talk about revival. I met an atheist once who tried to get rid of Christmas cards, Christmas decorations, Christmas parties and anything to do with Jesus removed form the work place. He lost. It is our constitutioal right for reliegious freedom and self expression. It also was his hate crime against Christians and that violates the title 6. They may have taken down the 10 Commandments from the public schools but YOU WILL NOT STOP THE HOLY GHOST REVIVAL. 'Moon' did an excellent job producing this message of repenting, confessing and forgivness of sins. Recorded at our house - Smiley Creek Studio - Ridgetop, TN Contemporary Christian Gospel Country/Rock 12. We've Got to Love Written By 'Sunshine' Brenda E. Smith (c)2004,2010 Red Hot Trax BMI - Produced By 'Moon' In every song I have been inspired by the word of God. Give glory where glory is due. This song is the most powerful messages Jesus shares, we've got to love. Love one another. Love our neighbors as our selves. Love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Pray for your enemies. Love is the greatest commandment. Another excellent production by 'Moon' and we hear some 'Cowboy' magic too. The band is rockin' and rollin' for Jesus. Amen Recorded at our house - Smiley Creek Studio - Ridgetop, TN Contemporary Christian Gospel Country/Rock Thanks to a very wonderful supportive family I am blessed beyond measure. I want the this bubbling joy and endless river of living water inside me to flow through me to you. I want to Shine! Shine!! Shine!!! for Jesus. Everyday I wake up and I rise and shine for Jesus. I owe every thing I have to God. Everything is from God and I keep praising the Lord for his awesome deeds. Thanks to my Mom and Dad who's healing, love and joy are living testimony to the greatness of God. I can't wait to take the tour bus in that direction. Your dedication and hard work are so admirable. Soon and very soon. It is all coming together. I love you!!! I love you both like the heavens need the stars. I am so fortunate to have you in my life. I am very grateful!!! My children and grandchildren are the sparkle in my eyes. Such a delight. I can hardly describe. Brandon, David, Darla, Elijah, Mariah, big John and little John, I love you!!! I appreciate my sister Ellen and her husband Dale, my brother Benny and his wife Tina, and my brother Glenn and his wife Glenda. We have all prayed together through the good and the bad. But really it is mostly good. Thank you for your fellowship and friendship. I truly admire the way you all have stuck together for so many years; a real example of commitment, sacrifice and undying love. I love you!!! Of course our Mom and Dad and grandparents were good examples of staying together all with over 50 years of marriage. ILove you!!! David and the Becker family has always made us feel welcome and loved. Thanks for being my other family. I Love you!!! My nieces and nephews are going to college, working, and all have excepted Christ as their Lord and Savior, that is so beautiful. I am comforted to know that Jesus keeps you safe and I am so proud of all of you. I love you!!! Thank you 'Moon' for giving your time to study the word with me. I read and you listen. Your tenacity for spiritual growth through radio has been commendable. I will continue to pray for your healing. I believe in miracles. Your children are fine examples of God's work and I know they appreciate that you gave up playing in the bars to follow Jesus. It's a big change from the bar scene to the ministry and your family has been so supportive of your desire to follow God's calling. I pray for all of your family to know Christ as their Lord and Savior. It is comforting when you know all your family will meet you in heaven someday. Our lives are testimony to God's healing power. Jesus Loves all of you and I love you too!!! Thank you 'Cowboy' Eddie Long for being a good friend. Through thick and thin we have stuck it though like glue. You prayed for me and I prayed for you. I know it has been hard for you to arrange your busy schedule to play for Jesus but you squeezed us in. I think I owe you big time. Try to stop by and pick up your royalty checks more often than once a year. And also thanks for not being too critical of my bass playing. Jesus Loves You and I do too!!! To all the musicians, family and friends who helped at The Jesus Christ Fan Club and helped make this album possible you are too kind and I am so blessed by your talents. I'm glad we all share in God's love, mercy and grace. Isn't God awesome!
