Because I’m Tired Of My Feet

Shaun-Groves-Third-World-Symphony-iTunes-banner-200x200I’ll be interviewed by Fox News today at 2:35 Eastern. We’ll be talking about the new album Third World Symphony and, more than likely, the ministry of Compassion International too. You can watch the interview live at

If all goes well, I hope a few folks watching Fox will hop over to to maybe learn a bit more about me and my music. Feels like out of town guests are coming over and I should clean the toilets and scrub the base boards, put some healthy stuff in the fridge and go get some living house plants to replace those wilted things over there.

There’s this feeling that I should put my best foot forward. But I’m so tired of talking about me.

How about someone else’s feet instead? So…

Have you met my friend Ann? Have you read Ann’s book One Thousand Gifts? Only once? You should walk through it again – this time with a pencil in your hand and a notebook close by. It’s so beautiful and dense, written to remind us of the potency of the smallest prayer: Thank you, God.

It inspired a couple songs on Third World Symphony. So if you came here because you wanted to learn more about my music you should start by learning more about gratitude from Ann. Get the book!

And while you’re waiting on it to arrive…Here are a couple videos of Ann and me talking in her wheat field in beautiful middle-of-nowhere Canada about gratitude and the connection between her words and my music.
