They have beautiful décor for your year-round needs; fantastic fall displays, signature Christmas trees, elegant ornament sets, flickering flameless candles, and a gorgeous spring floral line.

Maybe you’ve heard for KING & COUNTRY played on my radio program? You’ve told me how much you love their music and how breathtaking they are to experience in concert. Lucky you, because I’m adding autographed copies of their new CD, “Burn the Ships” http://smarturl.it/BurnTheShipsAlbum and their holiday release, “Christmas | Live from Phoenix.” http://smarturl.it/ fKCChristmasLive. to my 12 Stockings of Christmas Sweepstakes.
If you don’t know them you should; their music is both uplifting and spiritual, singing about the reason for the season. (They have the MOST amazing version of “The Little Drummer Boy”) They’re on tour this holiday season and if they come to your town they are not to be missed. You can check out their music and tour schedule at for KING & COUNTRY’s web site. Both albums are available everywhere.
I’m welcoming eight-time Grammy nominated TRAIN back to my 12 Stockings of Christmas with, “TRAINS Greatest Hits” https://fanlink.to/traingreatesthits. The new album comes fresh off a sold-out summer tour with Hall and Oats and celebrates 20 years of TRAIN music. It pulls together 16 fan-favorites including “Drops of Jupiter,” “Calling All Angels,” and “Hey Soul Sister” as well as a special cover of a Pat Monahan favorite, George Michael’s “Careless Whisper.” featuring the amazing saxophonist, Kenny G.
I’m also including their wonderful Christmas album, “Christmas in Tahoe,” https://fanlink.to/christmasintahoe that’s filled with holiday classics we’ve come to love. It’s no surprise that TRAIN has had 12 albums on Billboard’s Top 200! Keep them in mind when you’re shopping for the music fan on your list, and be sure and pick up copies of each CD for yourself. .
Put a little TRAIN underneath your Christmas tree this holiday season! They are incredible supporters of Point Hope, and I love them!
The singer has reached into her soul, by writing and composing some modern- day holiday songs that will certainly become classics, like, “Underneath the Mistletoe”, “Sunshine,” the title track “Everyday is Christmas” and the so- adorable-it-can’t-be-real “Puppies Are Forever.”
“Everyday is Christmas” has a song for everyone this holiday season, perfect for your holiday playlist and your favorite persons Christmas stocking.
One of my favorites from last year’s 12 Stockings of Christmas, the FUJIFILM Instax Camera, is back! Did you know I use it when I go to Africa for Point Hope? The children love walking away with their pictures in hand.
The INSTAX is a great stocking stuffer, perfect for capturing every moment of every special occasion; birthday celebrations, weddings, parties and CHRISTMAS MORNING. Just snap and watch the pictures develop instantly. There are Instax pictures all over my house of the kids, the dogs, and our farm animals too.
Put some fun in your holiday stocking this Christmas by sharing an original with Fujifilm Instax SQ6 Square Camera!
If you’ve tuned in to the show lately, you know I’ve written a new book, One Heart At A Time, released on October 16. It was a labor of love, and became even more so after the loss of my beloved son, Zachariah, the previous year. Writing stopped for a while, but telling his story became such a pressing need that I pressed on, finished the book, and created a new chapter just about him.
But the book is more than that. This is my story and my plea. The world is facing some trying times, we are more disconnected and lonelier than ever before. How do we change it? One. Heart. At. A. Time.
I’ve included an autographed copy in each of my 12 Stockings this year with the hope that you will enjoy it and it will inspire you to reach out and help me change the world. All we need is love and a heart that is willing to serve.
Let me introduce you to something I’ve just discovered, the Gravity Blanket. Are you hosting relatives, cooking over-the-top meals, spending hours shopping for gifts, and feeling that holiday stress? You need a Gravity Blanket! It’s a weighted blanket that’s designed to help improve sleep and decrease stress and anxiety.
I gave one to my daughter, Shaylah - baby Rosalie’s mama - and she loves it. A Gravity Blanket is the best gift you can give someone who deserves some rest and relaxation this holiday season and all year through.
The name says it all! Original PeachSkinSheets® are so comfortable and soothing! That’s why I’m adding them to my 12 Stockings of Christmas this year! They start at $55 for a complete sheet set, even King size! They won't change body chemistry of course, but they will help keep hot sleepers cooler, drier, and more comfortable during the night. (For women at a certain stage of life, this is heaven!)

I fell in love with the SPINSTYLE last year so it just makes sense to add it to my 12 Stockings of Christmas. The perfect gift, SalonTech’s patented Technology Curl Dial works like an extra set of hands to pick up, separate, and guide hair around the barrel, to create easy, fast, and tangle free curls with one hand (just make sure the hair is brushed through!). From tight bouncy curls to loose, voluptuous, beachy waves at the touch of a button, the SpinStyle takes half the time of a regular curling iron.
I do my hair in the morning and I am set for the entire day! I have one for home and one for travel. It makes for the perfect stocking stuffer, and my listeners can get an exclusive, special offer through SpinStyle.
New music is the perfect gift for everyone! I’m adding Calum Scott’s amazing debut album to the goodies in my stockings. You’ve heard “You Are the Reason” played on my show, and have seen the heartfelt video on my Facebook page. The entire album is filled with music meant to connect people.
Calum is quoted, “I wrote this album with the intention of connecting with people all around the world, using my own personal experiences.” Every song on Only Human evokes wonderful emotion and his videos too are beautiful and emotive.
You won’t go wrong by adding Calum’s Only Human to the list of What To Buy for your favorite people this holiday season.
I am so excited to add one of the most anticipated albums of the year to my 12 Stockings of Christmas! I’m talking about Steve Perry’s new album “Traces” of course. It’s his first new music in nearly a quarter of a century, and it’s available everywhere NOW.
“Traces” is the legendary singer-songwriter’s most honest and vulnerable release to date, chronicling love, loss, and, ultimately, hope. Perry leads with the track “No Erasin” and reassuringly greets fans with the opening line “I know it’s been a long time comin’.” The track is an emotional homecoming; everyone is celebrating his new music. Forbes Magazine exclaims “for all of music it is damn good to have the Steve Perry back.” I couldn’t agree more.
“Traces” has received critical acclaim from many, including USA Today, who highlighted it as one of “10 Albums You Need Too Hear This Fall.” Take yourself and someone special on the emotional journey of “Traces.”
My 12 Stockings of Christmas just aren’t complete until I’ve added my favorite candy, Almond ROCA. This delicious treat brings back the fondest childhood memories of Christmas’ past, and I love giving, and getting into, those pink tins all year long!
Brown and Haley make every batch of ROCA with rich creamy butter, California almonds, and the best quality chocolate! Choose from Almond, Cashew, Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt Caramel, Peppermint, and Mocha ROCA. SO YUMMY!! They have something for EVERYONE.
This holiday season, whether looking for gifts for your office party, your child’s favorite teacher, or sweet treat for yourself, remember, every stocking should be filled with Almond ROCA on Christmas morning. Visit them online or find them at local retailers.
I've had a crush on Paul McCartney since I was old enough to crush. Some things just never change and that makes me so so happy!
And the press release says this:
True to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Station’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals “Station I” and “Station II,” each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination.
Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (“Happy With You”), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (“People Want Peace”), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos (“Despite Repeated Warnings”).
The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now--with Paul’s singular unmistakable melodic and lyrical sensibility serving as a guide.
Two tracks were previously released as singles; the plaintive ballad “I Don’t Know” and raucous stomper “Come On To Me." I loved both as much as I love the album cover, McCartney's own art work of course. (I'm tellin' ya, CRUSHIN'!)
My good friend, Rod Stewart, will release his 30th studio album, Blood Red Roses, September 28th on Republic Records! I can't be more excited!
Rod is such an incredible artist and incredible man. He loves and cares deeply, and no more so than for his children and their future. The album’s first single, “Didn’t I” is about the damage drugs can do from a parents’ point of view. If you pre-order the 13-song standard or 16-song deluxe album from digital retailers you'll instantly receive a download of "Didn’t I.”
‘I always think I make albums for a few friends and this record has that intimacy,’ Rod Stewart said. ‘Sincerity and honesty go a long way in life and the same is true in song-writing.’
“Blood Red Roses,” is a deeply personal 13-track collection of originals and three covers, and has been described as "...quite simply peak Rod Stewart." It moves as smooth as the man himself, from acoustic driven folk, through Motown-tinged pop/R&B, to unadulterated rock’n’roll, with those quintessential Rod Stewart heart-melting ballads thrown in.
This new album will be released nearly 50 years to the date of when he signed his very first solo recording contract. (Fifty years we've been rockin' to Rod!)
Rod has donated several concert packages that have helped support Point Hope, and I couldn't love him more for it!
Last January, Train released their 8th studio album, a girl a bottle a boat, and the lead single, “Play That Song,” went platinum in 4 countries!!! They are a multi-talented, multi-faceted group that gets a LOT of air-time on the Delilah program, and one I especially love to play during the holidays. Christmas in Tahoe, re-released last year, brings that signature Train sound to holiday classics as well as several original songs. It's so so good!
Train recently wrapped up a spectacular co-headline tour with Daryl Hall & John Oates. I hope you were able to catch it in your area! If not, check their tour page for upcoming dates. Hopefully they'll be scheduling more venues soon!
AND, did you know Train partakes in other ventures outside of music? Proceeds from newly launched Save Me, San Fransisco Chocolates, and Drops of Jupiter® wine portfolio go toward Family House, a San Francisco charity that supports families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
Train has also been a very generous contributor to my own heart's cause, Point Hope. I love the music, I love frontman, Pat Monahan, and I love their hearts!
Enjoy my friends!
