Thank you for sending in your sunrise and sunset images. Your photographs are truly inspirational and quite beautiful. I plan to start work this weekend on a musical slideshow featuring your fiery images.

Monday I'll have another slideshow for you. It's called Cascade Johnny and it features the amazing waterfall images of High Point photographer Kevin Adams.

We are celebrating this week. My latest CD "Simple Beauty" hit number one on the world music charts. We’ll be featuring songs from the album on more music videos in the weeks ahead.

A lot of people ask about my music and other things at the State Fair. I always enjoy greeting folks in the WRAL booth near Dorton Arena. It's fun to keep a mental log of the people's names. Hayley was really popular this year. In fact I met two girls who spelled their name the traditional way and two that spelled it Hayleigh. I met my first Maren at the Fair. That's another beautiful name.

The most interesting question I heard this year came from a woman who asked: “Do you look more like your mother or father?” I said – “probably my mother.”

What about you? Do you look more like Mom or Dad?
