We Need Your Help...Tonight!!

Today in Birmingham started early (7AM) with a visit to the Rick and Bubba morning radio show. If that doesn't mean anything to you, I'm at a loss for words. For openers, their listener call-in number is 1-877-WE BE BIG. They are Alabama boys through and through, have one of the leading morning shows around on any format and are lovers of Jesus...and crazy. Their show is syndicated in lots of markets and live on Turner South. Chris, Matt and I were on for about 45 minutes and had a blast!

Bubba took up the cause to get the iTunes Bundle to the top today. "Louie, get ready. It's going to number 1 today." Bubba even downloaded the Bundle on air! How poetic that we might get to the top with the help of Rick and Bubba In The Morning! Well, I think their listeners/viewers definitely got "Made To Worship," pushing it to #1 on the Inspo song chart, but the Bundle didn't move. How is that possible?? We need their listeners to grab the whole Bundle to get some movement. If it works, maybe Rick and Bubba will have us back to play Party live on air!

What do we need you to do??
E-mail Rick and Bubba tonight (their show starts at, like 5 AM tomorrow) and say thank you for helping the Passion Movement get to the top of iTunes with stuff that honors Christ. How fun if their mail box is busting when they arrive tomorrow (Friday) with mail from all these nice Passion people from across the world saying thank you.

Call your friends and get them to send an e-mail. Tons of e-mails. Happy, thank you e-mails.

We want hundreds in their box in the morning. If we send enough, maybe they will spend Friday trying to help us get the Party Song going!! Can we do this??? Drop a quick Blog and let us know you made some noise!

Copy to all:
speedy@rickandbubba.com (He's their producer, I think. Cool guy who got behind the Bundle).

Let's go for it....only 6.5 hours till they arrive.


  • You gotta love a good southern boy! We just know how its done in the south! I will definately email them. Even if the bundle doesnt reach number one, God's glory will still be displayed whether or not we choose to proclaim it. "Even the rocks will cry out!"
    For HIS Fame,

  • definately will do that Louie...I already got the bundle and it was great. I am at the University of Arkansas at Monticello and tonight was our worship service. We usually do Passion songs during worship and tonight we had a guy accept Christ. And we celebrated with a PARTY (clap,clap...clap). Passion 06 has started a movement on our campus and I am excited to see where it is going to go from here. Thanks for everything ya'll do. Love you guys.

  • and another email...what an incredible opportunity to see Christ radically represented in a music culture defined by MTV. Jesus...i pray in your name that You will draw some to yourself through curiousity in this "passion movement" bundle that keeps showing up on itunes.

    Right on to that!

    Turn your eyes upon Jesus
    Look full in HIS wonderful face
    And the things of earth
    will grow strangely dim
    in the Light of His GLORY & PRAISE.

  • Hey Louie!! Just letting you know that I just sent an e-mail to Rick, Bubba, and Speedy letting them know how much I appreciate their efforts. Even if Passion doesn't get to the number one spot (hopefully, in God's will, it does) it's still really cool that the bundle made it into the top 10 where other iTunes people can see it!! By the way, Passion sign-up is only 5 days away (I didn't know whether you knew that or not, haha) and I'm really excited. See you later!

  • Great job guys! I would say that their mail boxes are sufficiently full! I tried to send an e-mail just now... and I figured that Bubba's would come back... but Rick's came back as well! So... I think my e-mail made it in to Speedy at least!

    *Sigh* This makes me smile. God's glory being declared! YAY!

    I may try in another hour or two to send my e-mails again!

    Enjoy your weekend, guys, and get some rest!

  • Mornig Louie, I am happy to report that Rock and Bubba this morning were blown away by the e-mails they received from all around the country, and they once again are making a BIG push for everyone to download the bundle. Callers who were at the show last night were calling in and telling them all about it! So hopefully, and prayerfully, we'll get the bundle to #1!!!

  • That is so awesome. I usually listen to Rick and Bubba on the way to work in the mornings, but today I just listened to the road. I will definitely be emailing them before i leave today. Oh this is great. I love their 7AM song. Everyone should tune in just for that.

    By Blogger will polley, at 2/24/2006 2:43 PM  

  • Well... the brown bundle hasn't moved... but the white bundle has moved up to 67 from 70 on Wednesday. So that's cool.

    Another fun thing... The top 6 of the Inspo top 10 are Passion and sixstep family albums! Seven of the top 10 are Passion and sixstep. Very cool.

    So grateful for Bubba and Rick! The Glory of God is becoming known!

    For HIS Glory,

  • Louie,

    I thank God for passion, for you, and for the indescribable tour! God is so indescribable, but doing so many little describable things that are indescribable... thanks for coming to Birmingham this week; it was HIS perfect timing; I'm spending time with Marla; we came to see you all last night and had an amazing time; and today, God led us by HIS hand to get into Beth Moore's conference (and of course she's addressing the one question both of us were just struggling with:)

  • I don't know if Rick and Bubba contacted Louie but they did talk about all the e-mails on the air on Friday. They said they had gotten e-mails (and lots of them) from people all over the country! Thanks Louie, Chris, and Matt for your stop in B'ham! I needed to be reminded again of how incredible tiny I am and how massive my God is. And in light of all of that, He called me by name! Thanks guys!
