>> NEEDTOBREATHE Release Double-Vinyl Edition of The Reckoning
While you can only grab it at their live shows now for about $25, NEEDTOBREATHE has released their lastest album, The Reckoning, on white double vinyl. In addition to The Reckoning's 14 original tracks, the band has added two b-sides from The Reckoning's recorded sessions exclusively for the vinyl release -- "Cops" and "Disaster Road." It hasn't been announced whether or not the vinyl will be made available elsewhere (like the band's webstore), but it's likely that after their spring tour, any remaining copies should be made available online.

>> Kari Jobe, Dara Maclean, Blanca Reyes and more Film SNL Skit Spoof
The Winter Jam 2012 crew are clearly enjoying their time on the road together, and the ladies of WJ (Dara Maclean, Kari Jobe, and Blanca from Group 1 Crew) have put together their own spoof video of a recent SNL Skit based around a popular song by Adele. In the video--just like the SNL skit--the girls use the Adele song "Someone Like You" to express their broken hearts about various topics. The spoof also stars Russ Lee of Newsong and Joel of for King & Country, as well as other road crew. Dara writes, "I kept watching it and showing it to Kari and Blanca and we would laugh hysterically! I love the random things they just burst into tears about and every girl knows exactly what I mean! Well, one night, in our dressing room, I was like, "Girls!!! We have to do a spoof of this video and it has to Winter Jam related!!!" We got really excited and so the process began! I went to catering and saw Russ and told him the whole idea, he added some thoughts and got on the band wagon. Then, I saw Joel and told him he had to be in it! I don't even know how it all evolved, but the cast came together beautifully and after some practice, we gave it a go! However, there was only one cake, so the pressure was on, we had one shot and went for it! This is what happened..." Visit for the video!

After receiving over 10,000 personal stories from all over the globe for his 2010 project The Story of Your Life, the acclaimed singer/songwriter who has been forever impacted by the outpouring of stories, felt as though there was even more for others to say during this season of his music.
