Three Days Until Christmas


its 3 days until christmas and there's no sign that santa will grant my holiday wish of a 4 week trip to europe or my request to visit the international space station sometime in 2008.

big man, get to work.

while most have slowed down this month, rsb has been working overtime to bring music to new fans across the country..oh and to bring world peace, of course.

many of you know that American Idol has included RISE in several of their ads airing on Fox during the holiday season. All of us in rsb land are thrilled beyond belief!

There is one little problem.

rsb is not quite in the same league as say...Carrie Underwood, Ruben Studdard, or Justin Guarini (okay, maybe justin).

because of our low profile, we're afraid that the fine folks at FOX and the rest of this great country may not appreciate what great fans and support we have.

enter YOU.

you can help send the word to the country and all at American Idol that this little band from texas might just have reason to stick around and make some music for years to come.

3 days to christmas -- 3 days of rsb support:


visit iTunes and purchase the new album GIVE YOURSELF AWAY and/or the song RISE. You can even select to gift the album and send it to a friend or family member via email - perfect for a christmas gift for that crazy uncle of yours.

this is such a cool feature and is the best way to show your support of the band and its involvement with American Idol. We are currently #15 in the christian charts. Help us get to #1 on christmas day, what do you say?


our single SONG OF HOPE is still climbing the radio charts and we need your help! call your radio station and thank them for playing RSB. if they are not currently playing the song, be kind in your request that they consider adding to their station.

Also, add the song to your ringtones and ring away!


blog, write, call, email, text..

whatever your medium of communication is this holiday season - let people know about the RSB ads on Fox during the holidays and encourage your friends to purchase the album via iTunes.

okay, so its not world domination we're plotting here - but in our little corner of the music world, these 3 tiny easy steps could go a long way in helping us make music for years to come.

merry christmas from rsb and thanks for your support in 2007!

American Idol & rsb??

i know. i know.
we're having a hard time believing it as well.
i mean i've spent many a night trying to dance like Justin Guarini & sing like Ruben Studdard - neither worked out too well, mind you - but never dreamed we'd be a part of the new season in some small way.

The fine folks at American Idol are playing RISE on their new commercials promoting the upcoming season starting in January - and we're thrilled about being a part of the ads!
What? No my uncle does not work for Simon Cowell, why would you say that? anyway...

seriously, you can see for your own eyes.. click on the link below:

Be on the lookout for the spots, airing on FOX (of course) throughout the holidays.
There's even a moment when the band name and song title flash on the screen. crazy!

Thanks to everybody who has emailed or called to let us know they saw the commercial.

If you see it, please comment on the blog and let us know.
with love from all in rsb land,

HOPE, COFFEE & MELODY Christmas Offer!

its december in houston.
christmas time.
and tomorrow it will be 80 degrees.
global warming, no doubt.

However, many of you are enjoying a white december already - sipping egg nog by the fire in your cardigans while listening to the christmas classics of bing crosby.
we salute you. we do.

but for those longing for something different - ditch the egg nog and bing crosby and replace them with rsb and coffee.

its the HOPE. COFFEE. MELODY christmas offer from your life long friends at the rsb store.
here's how it works:

the GOODS - 3 cd's (GIVE YOURSELF AWAY, BETTER DAYS (sparrow), BETTER DAYS (indie)
1 T-SHIRT of your choosing,1 STICKER and1 half pound bag of fair trade COFFEE! ALL for just $50.

the HOPE - a $5 donation will be made in your name to LIVING WATER INTERNATIONAL, an organization devoted to bringing clean water to people around the world. (visit to learn more about LW and how you can get involved)

the COFFEE - we're proud to partner with Taft Street Coffee in Houston to support Fair Trade Coffee and the farmers who work hard to grow such great coffee beans. I promise you will love this coffee and will be supporting farmers who are paid fairly for their labor.

the MELODY - we hope you enjoy the new album (Give Yourself Away) and both Better Days albums. Oh, and so we're clear -- the better days albums are different, containing 6 different songs that make owning both cd's unique.

Not to worry, we still have cd's and shirts for sale individually and are happy to offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders in December.

Merry Christmas from all of us in rsb land.
