First CONTEST ever - Cory Chisel CD giveaway!

Yup, that's right - my first ever GIVEAWAY here at Backstage Pass to Health & Happiness!
Wow... is all I have to say. I am listening to the new album from Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons, and it's pretty great.
This post falls into the 'Happiness' category of my blog name. As you know, music is a big part of my life - I am pretty involved with it career-wise, and first and foremost, as a fan. Every now and then, I will post about musical artists or new album releases to keep you in the know :-)
Cory Chisel is a Wisconsin artist who has grown quite a bit over the past few years. His new album was produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who is known for his work with The Shins and The White Stripes. I've seen Cory & the Sons perform countless times at our venues, and he has this unique, soulful and smooth voice. An incredible musician. I couldn't be more proud that as a Wisconsin artist, he is finally getting the respect and exposure he deserves in the national spotlight!
Most importantly - he will be performing LIVE tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! How's that for awesome? Do me a favor and please check it out tonight.
And now, what you've all been waiting for - the first ever GIVEAWAY!!!
I am going to buy one of you Cory's new CD, Death Won't Send a Letter. This contest is in no way endorsed by anyone or any company, I just personally think this artist is so great that one of you deserves to check him out on my dime!
Here's how to enter:

I was writing on my own blog about apple cider today and thought about you and your blog. I didn't know this but apple cider has the same amount of calories as normal apple juice but has more antioxidants and fiber. I always thought it had more sugar/calories but guess not. favorite song on the Death Won't Send A Letter album is probably the "Born Again" song. It gets the most airplay, but for good reasons. I think it really showcases Cory Chisel's country gospel-y croon and messages of self-realization. That song starts the whole album and is a good base for the rest of the record.

I'll also post your give-away on , too
