  1. You guys have been on the road a day or 2 too long! Bart, you outdid yourself in so many areas. Singing, giggling, keeping a straight face. NOT! I still say “The Time of my Life” is still my fav. You better be working on a Roadshow finale by next Sunday and it better be as good as the end of last Fall.

    P.S. “10” is great, both the CD & the most awesome DVD. Love, love, love it! :)

  2. O my gosh!! I saw your show in Denver last night, and that was the first time I saw the Cover Tune Grab Bags…we all were laughing SO hard!!! You guys rock!!! This one is great!! HAHAH!! ;D

  3. As soon as I started the video, the whole family came running from various parts of the house. CTGB brings us together like nothing else can! The fact that one of your children just sat there coloring the whole time proves the fact that you guys are that nuts all the time. Love it! I want to know if Jim was really singing though?? It kind of looked like he was faking it. Well done, gentlemen!

  4. Ah, this brings me back to high school graduation. We sang the same song. But we serious. And didn’t bring the vocal breakdown that you offered. That was magical.

  5. I was wondering when the next CTGB was gonna come out. Nice one. :) I agree with Todd, it made me think of high school graduation. Ahh….memories.

  6. Love it! I don’t know how William just sit there without getting in on the song with you. Loved how Mike started looking at his watch right at the end. Where was Robby?

  7. I recently voted on a local radio station for you guys as favorite ccm band. Callers were asked to explain why they chose the bands they voted for. I told everyone to go to your website and check out your ctgb. Got a call from the dj a few minutes later. He was laughing so hard at first I thought it was a prank call. Needless to say he gave your web address over the air.

  8. haha, that was pure awesomeness! I think around 2:40 was my favorite part. Where was Robby? I miss the CTGB’s….we need more and more and more, lol. I love the shirt Bart…backwards and all!

  9. LOL! Way too funny! I want to know 1 thing: Who is the child in the background? I loved the reaction when everyone hit the deck, then it was back to what he was doing…Just way too cute!

  10. I laughed so hard at this it brought tears to my eyes!! At the same time you all are an amazing talent and I cannot wait to see you when you come to Minnesota in June!!!!!

  12. That was great!I remember that song very well from back in the day, I luv the CTGB!!!!!!!! Where was Robbie?

  13. I loved the Christina Aguilera-esque hand movement on that last bit of vocal gymnastics there at the end. :D

    This was pretty priceless.

  14. You never fail to put a HUGE smile on my face and make me laugh until I almost pass out! You guys are a blessing and God has really used you to touch my life! Thank you SO much!! God Bless and Happy Resurrection Sunday! :)

  15. After watching the guys follow Bart, I guess that is why he is the frontman – I do believe they would follow you blindly almost anywhere – check out the end when Barry was trying to move his mouth the same way as Bart – it was rather strange seeing Jim actually move his lips to sing – great harmonies btw!

  16. Our family loves the Cover Tune Grab Bags. Mom and dad think you guys have go to do a Huey Lewis and the News tune. You can’t think of 80’s music without thinking of Huey.

  17. ROFL! As always, good stuffs! One week until Cedar Rapids… still praying for an additional concert in Des Moines! =D

  18. PS: How did you mirror that video when you posted it? The t-shirt Bart is wearing was a funny distraction in itself. ;-)

  19. I love ya guys! Your hilarious and talented! The fact that we have dial-up is kind of a bumer. But yuns still rock! My fav out of the ctgb’s has to be”Eye of the Tiger”. Or should I say tigger! LOL!!! BTW you totally rocked the Ozarks last night! I screamed so much (out of enjoyment of course), I thought I’d lose my voice. Hope the rest of your tour is a blessing.

  20. You rock man!! My favorite song is “SO LONG SELF”. My Church played that song at my baptisim. That eye of the tiger video made me LOL so much i cryed. You rocked Springfield MO.

  21. You see there really is good entertainment on the net. You guys make my kids roll in the floor. Thanks for the laugh.

  22. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I laughed so hard I was crying at this video!! By far my favorite CTGB, hands down!! Thanks for reminding us not to take life too seriously, especially in these times. Love mercyme.

  23. LOLOLOL!!!! oh Man , that was hilarious !! still laughing….as i’m typing…….. oh gosh… too funny… nice shirt Bart! that was a good one !!!! having CTGB withdraws !! thanks guys for the laugh :)

  29. You guys are the greatest! I was feeling down until I found your Cover Tune Grab Bag. When I heard you guys sing It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye, I just cracked up! I laughed so hard to the point I was snorting! I am so glad I am not the only person on the planet that act silly and does not use alcohol or drugs to have fun. I’d love to hang out with you guys. On another note, I want to thank you for being a big part of my journey. I have been back with the Lord now going on 6 years amazing years. I found you guys after I had come back home to the Lord. I saw you guys in concert on April 18, 2009 in Cedar Rapids, IA. It was a dream come true. Many emotions went through me that night. It was Awesome! I have one wish before I leave this world and that is to actually meet all of you in person. Anyway, keep doing what you guys do and I love you and pray for you all and your families. May God always be with you all. Teresa.
