Greetings SM Family

Polish Translation

(Pozdrowienia Rodzina SM)

We are moving into mid-week, Wednesday, November 11 and it is a really great day of music at CCM Classic radio.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner; I hope that you are able to get with your family!

You know there is no better way to introduce Jesus to your friends who never had the fortune of knowing him, then through great music. All you need to do is SHARE CCM CLASSIC with them and let the music do the rest.

This week we have a couple of artists that you may not be familiar with so below is a little something about them:

Adam Klutinoty: band “About A Mile”

If faith could be measured with a guitar amplifier, Adam Klutinoty’s amp would go to 11. The lead singer and guitarist for About A Mile has seen the mess his lack of faith has created in the past. Now his faith is cranked up an extra notch. “I want to take Christ seriously and trust Him all the way,” Adam says. “One hundred percent.” That’s easy to say, but hard to live out. For most of his life, Adam felt his plans and God’s plans lined up. Music was a constant at his family’s home outside of Pittsburgh. Adam picked up the guitar after seeing his dad and older brother Micah play. Soon he and his brothers Luke and Levi formed a band. “We were always jamming together,” Adam says. “Then we found a youth group that needed a worship band.”

Tasha Layton: Artist

Sometimes we have to walk in circles to move forward. Sometimes we have to see everything around us before we can see what’s right in front of us. And sometimes, God’s inexplicably unconditional love sends us on wild journeys to find our way home.

Tasha Layton has circled the globe, taking in an array of people, faith and cultures, all the while compelled, driven and inspired by a love relentless and unconditional. This love runs wild and courses through each note and lyric on Tasha’s debut EP, aptly titled, Love Running Wild.

This weeks “Song of The Week” is “He’s My Son” by Mark Schultz

Go to to check out the Lyrics which says it all. Mark Schultz wrote this song about a family dealing with their son's cancer when he was a youth minister at a church in Nashville, Tennessee. It was inspired by the grieving of a couple in his church, whose son had been diagnosed with leukemia. Shultz observed the struggles of the mother and father. He explained in CCM Top 100 Greatest Songs In Christian Music: Louise often stayed up with (Martin) until he fell asleep. She would rub his back and try to comfort him, but she felt helpless. Some nights, John would wake up and walk down the hall to Martin's room and watch him sleep. As he stood there, he would try to imagine what life would be like without his son.
