Chad Brownlee, one of Canada’s hottest country artists right now, donated a set of his strings!
We’ve known Chad for a few years through Twitter, have met him signing autographs at a few shows last year and he’s a super nice guy, so didn’t hesitate at all when asked to donate for our cause!
A set of lovely rose gold (well used) strings arrived a few weeks ago, and the package was autographed! Love it!
We decided to create a bracelet immediately, inspired by ‘country’ and donated it to the BCCMA silent auction as part of their annual fund raiser. The other 5 strings will develop as our imagination takes flight 🙂 Stay tuned!
Papa Roach guitarist Jerry Horton told us a few months ago yes! He would donate his used strings to us, and true to his word, they arrived! We got a FedEx card in the mail the other day, and it said there was a parcel for pick up – but not at the post office – at the hardware store! Very odd.. what on earth could it be? Went down to get it, asked the guy who it was from as he came out of the stock room – Papa Roach he says -and his eyes light up! “my fav band” he says.. yes! Ours too haha..
So the package was big! And it said Papa Roach on the return address – their management company. Could hardly wait to get out to the car to open it up!
We’ve been getting to know more about the mega rock band Papa Roach over the last year – singer/frontman Jacoby Shaddix is 3 yrs clean and sober, has become a born again believer (and is quite open about how this is what saved his life from the drugs and drink) and the band has a new album out, F.E.A.R (Face Everything and Rise). This band is HUGE and has a great loyal (large) group of fans and followers and we love everything about them – great attitude, great music, fantastic way they treat their fans both at shows, and online.
