Five For Fighting CD Review & Giveaway

Thanks to the One2One Network, I have a new album on my Zune playlist!!!! I'm "enjoying a slice of American pie" listening to Five For Fighting's new CD, Slice. I really love the songs on this album including Hope, Story of Your Life, Chances and Note To The Unknown Solider. This album genre is acoustic rock.

What a super press release:
"If every album provides snapshots of where an artist’s mind at heart is at the moment, Slice, the latest offering from John Ondrasik (aka Five for Fighting), is a collection of digital jpegs and faded Polaroids. The album takes stories of friends, family and even American servicemen, and sets them to music shot through with the spirit of the great songs of his youth. It’s a diary, or a blog, in which Ondrasik speaks his mind about current issues, experiences and sentiments, while setting those thoughts to piano, bass and drums."
The CD will be released on October 12th!

One of my readers will win A FREE AUTOGRAPHED CD of Slice!

Besides his song "Superman", this is the first time that I've taken the time to listen to Singer/songwriter John Ondrasik work. I added several more of his albums to my playlist today, too! I'm super excited about the music on this CD as well as learning about this awesome Artist!
