Country Singer Releases New Song of Faith For Christmas, “Rockin’ With Jesus.”
Los Angeles, CA. 12/01/11 – Country singer Joyce Shaffer who was newly inducted into America’s Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame has just released another in a string of critically acclaimed songs. On the heels of her hit song “Loretta’s Shoes”, a tribute song to Loretta Lynn that was in consideration for a Grammy, Joyce has written and recorded a song born after the sudden death of a close friend’s husband. Her words speak clear and true to her friend and anyone who has lost a loved one. The song is about comfort in the knowledge that we will in time be reunited with those we love.
Shaffer draws from her life just as her singing idol Loretta Lynn has done and the result, inspired by God, rings true to those who hear it. “Rockin’ With Jesus” has also been made into a music video and can be seen on YouTube.com. In the video, as the song says, we see the faces of those who have gone on to, “heaven’s front porch.” “God gives me the words and music and I sing it.” Shaffer said, “Right after I learned of the death of my friend’s husband, the words came to me. God knew it would help to ease her pain. I hope it comforts anyone who hears it or watches the video.” Shaffer went on to say, ” This song may not have reindeers or Santa Claus, but it is my Christmas song because it is about the true meaning of Christmas and the world’s gift of salvation.”
Shaffer will be making her way to Nashville after the first of the year to appear on the Shotgun Red Show with Steve Hall. People are taking notice of this patriotic country singer with an uncanny ability to reach your heart with her songs. Look to see “Rockin’ With Jesus” hit the charts and look to see a lot more from this newly-minted Hall of Fame singer!
