Kathy & Gary Burt, MI
Who or what introduced you to Jim’s music?
A dear friend, who was a teaching colleague, gave me a Jim Brickman CD as a birthday gift at least 15 years ago. I loved the music immediately! She and her husband, along with Gary and I, attended our first Brickman concert in Grand Rapids, Michigan together. We were hooked! We have since attended two other concerts in that area.
What does Jim’s music do for you?
I played JB CDs in my elementary classroom, and the students loved it! The music is melodic, easy listening, calming, inspirational, and uplifting.
How have you shared Jim’s music?
Our home CD changer is constantly loaded with JB music for dinner parties. We have a 20- CD personal collection and have given several JB CDs as gifts over the years. “Never Alone” is our favorite song, and our favorite CD is the one we are listening to…in the car, at the cottage, or at home!
Have you ever been on the cruise or at a bash? If so, what do you enjoy most about it.
We attended a JB concert on the campus of Michigan State University. There we were handed information about the 2010 Alaskan cruise. We went on that cruise, which was remarkable on many levels. Since then, we have happily traveled with the wonderful Brickman groups to Hawaii, the Caribbean, Nova Scotia, and Niagara-on-the-Lake. We always enjoy reconnecting with the Brickman staff, his family, the fine musicians, and the other “Brickheads”. All are enjoyable, quality people!
