Q + A with Jim Brickman, "America's Romantic Piano Sensation" + a Giveaway

Happy Monday. With this week being the kick-off to the holiday season for my family {and likely yours as well}, I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway plus a Q + A with America's Romantic Piano Sensation, Jim Brickman. With it being engagement season and Jim's annual Christmas Tour just about to start - I wanted to ask him some questions about his romantic music and of course all the requests he receives for proposals at his concerts. My hubby and I have attended his holiday shows in the past and loved each one. They are magical and always in an intimate setting making them very romantic for all the couples in attendance. Below are my questions to Jim Brickman along with his replies and after the Q+A, there is a great giveaway where 4 lucky readers of Brenda's Wedding Blog will win a copy of Jim Brickman's brand new holiday album called "On a Winter's Night".

Q. Why do you think so many people approach you to propose at your concerts?

A. Couples connect to the romance, emotion and message they hear in my songs. And the concerts have such an intimate feeling, proposing in front of a huge audience doesn't seem to matter. It's about the moment and sharing it with each other.

Q. Do couples approach you to perform one of your songs at their wedding?

A. Yes, I'm honored to tell you that I'm asked all the time.   But it truly impossible due to my tour schedule. Couples have told me that their entire wedding ceremony was accompanied by Jim Brickman music, and they danced their "first dance" to one of my songs.

Q. When you write music, do you intend to be romantic? Do you have scenarios in mind when writing the music?

A. I try to imagine where the song will be heard, but I want the listener to create their own story. If I wrote a song and the melody sounded too specific, it wouldn't take on the universal theme of love and romance. Couples connect and find the emotion even in my Christmas albums. I could definitely picture my new CD "On A Winter's Night" being  played in front of a crackling fire.  The holiday songs create a warmth and intimacy that couples young and old find captivating during the holiday season. On this album the legendary Kenny Rogers sings "That Silent Night" about the longing to be together during the holiday season.  

Are you ready to enter to win a copy of Jim Brickman's brand new Holiday CD, "On a Winter's Night"? {there are 4 cd's being awarded - so that means 4 winners!}
UPDATE: Since Rafflecopter is down for nearly everyone and my new entry system wasn't working to my liking - I'm going back to the simple and traditional way of entering :) Simply enter your email and name to be entered to win {additional entry methods also available}. Good Luck. The giveaway runs thru Monday December 7th at 11:59 pm EST.
