Meetin' With The Mamas

I have big news.

I am about to get behind a microphone with Boomama and Bigmama for a special song.

Just kidding. For a PODCAST.

Yesssssssssssss. You heard me right. I am going to be a special guest on the next Boocast. And as excited as I have been writing songs this week...I gotta say I have been pretty dadgum excited about hangin' with the Mamas. The Mamas crack me and Angela up. We think they are one hollywood producer away from being their own sitcom. Either that, or one bad hair day away from doing hard time.

Oh, I kid because I love. (See - that's a Mama phrase.)

For real...we have grown slightly addicted to the Mamas, and love their posts. So I am looking forward to talking it up with some American Idol stuff, as well as whatever they want to talk about. I can't wait.

I am behind on my Idol-watching this week, because of our busy I will be checking it out this week, and studying up for the Boocast. It's my goal to overwhelm them with my vast knowledge of all things Idol.

Not really. My real goal is to be the least southern-sounding person speaking.

I think they are taking questions over on their blog, should anyone have questions for me. I already warned them that it's not like I'm Steven Curtis Chapman or something...and all 5 people who might have a question for me can probably get their answers from my blog. But, oh well...I will play along.

We have some other fun stuff to talk about, too...should we run out of question(s).

I think I need my own nickname for this event. Boomama...Bigmama...and...Bodaddy. Or Bodiddy. Or Frydaddy.

Any suggestions?


Sister said...

Sir Mama :)

Sounds fun. Can't wait to listen.


Fran said...

Bodiddy is my fav!!

I've got me a question. I'm heading over to Boo's or Big's next.

Have a great weekend.

As long as you don't start calling yourself BigPapi, I think we're all gonna be okay.

My Dear Family said...

LUV Frydaddy! You know you could almost be BIGDADDY, but that would require facial hair,southern manion, fried chicken, and a definitive southern drawl.

I am sitting with ipod ready for the BIGBOOCAST!

LindaSueBuhl said...

Too keep it within the actual parameters of derivation of BooMaMa - would have to be LeviDaddy - which sounds a little like you make jeans (an honorable profession) or maintain the Temple worship (Hey that sounds familiar for you doesn't it?) Looking forward to making your mark on the blog world now!?

Patty said...

LOL!!! Frydaddy, that's it!! BooMama would love you forever with Frydaddy.

Looking forward to this! I have submitted my question. I asked a friend of yours my question and she said no so I am curious as to how you will answer!

Frydaddy, a rap star in the making!

Stephanie (Ocean Mommy) said...

This is going to be an award winning BigBooCast!

I think FryDaddy is good, very appropriate for the south, but Bodaddy is good to...It's a very important decision, one to take very seriously!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Blogdaddy. What ya think?

Cindy said...

Hey, there ain't nothin wrong with soundin southern! :o)Ha/Ha.

Can't wait.

Darlene R. said...

I like Frydaddy. That's funny right there!

Hey, I left you a question, but I can't tell ya what it is because the Mama's would not be happy!

Hope you have fun with it!

Stephanie (Ocean Mommy) said...

Oh Travis, I'm only adding this to the list because I'm being submissive. My ever creative husband has decided your podcast name needs to be, brace yourself...



You can see why my mother in law says there will be an extra jewell in my crown.


HisTreasuredPossession said...

I have no idea what would be best as I'm too new to the boocast. but I'm looking forward to the interview!!

Charity said...

You crack me up! You definitely need a nickname!

I think Frydaddy is my fav!

Sir Mama is pretty funny too!

Anonymous said...

I think praisedaddy would be a good fit!!


twinkle said...

I like praisedaddy!
And I was thinking about


You know...your Travis...and you travel everywhere to share Christ.

Angela @ Refresh My Soul Blog said...

How exciting! I cannot wait. I think you should go with the name Boo Daddy then change it to B Diddy.Oh wait, I think someone has already done that!! HA! J/K

Can't wait!

jennyhope said...


LOL about the podcast!! I cant wait!

CrownLaidDown said...

OK, Bojingles :)

Sorry, I am medicated from the flu...but it does have a ring to it. Ba da bum!

jennyhope said...

i had some more names come over are some southern names. You can use these free of charge (LOL):

and here are some Travis rapper name:

I am done with my input! =)

connorcolesmom said...

That is really going to be fun.
I am looking forward to it!
So here are my ideas for the name:

The Big Boodaddy podcast
The Big MiestaBoo podcast
The Big DaddyBoo podcast

Alright I am cracking myself up so I will stop now :)

Jeff Bumgardner said...

The Immanuel Choir is praying for you. We'll see you in March!

Jai said...

I like and think BooMama might LOVE FryDaddy. Cause as you know anything fried can't be all bad. (Hehe) Can't wait to listen in.

Michelle Bentham said...

I am a little partial to the whole praisedaddy line of thinking... but who am I ... just 'nother blog junkie... uh-um... I guess my strongholds are showing better scat.

Although, in this sea of women bloggers "Blogdaddy" ain't too terrible either. (My daughers would have a fit if they knew I posted the word AIN'T on the WorldWideWeb - so we won't tell them will we... Ha!)

Have a blessed week and BOO Cast...

Just MHO, but I prefer Travis Cottrell to SCC - no dish, just the best praise is all!



Amy T said...

I like Praisedaddy, too. I can't wait for the podcast! I think it's so cool seeing all these bloggers connecting.

Brenda said...

I'm just hoping that there can be some equal time giving the Papa some props---HoosierDaddy--Denver. DMHO will be in the Hoosier state 3/28, but it seems you have a commitment in FL that night. Because you are good buds, how about heading north from NashVegas sometime?!? Could we in Indiana get some "Blessed Assurance" that this could happen?

Brenda--back home in Indiana

Janie said...

I am listening to the Pod cast and y'all are cracking me up!!!
It's now at the part where you are not listed on her Blog roll...I know her face is soooo red!!
I am Soph's Sister-in-law!
I'm for Bodiddy! ;-)

Janie said...

I'm listening to the Podcast now and y'all are hilarious!
I am Soph's sister-in-law!
I KNOW her face is so red realizing that you were not under her blogroll! Whoa!!
I think Bodiddy fits! ;-)

Bev Brandon said...

I am a little older blogger of a person over here...okay?
Well, so, um, where do you get this podcast thingy that said sister-in-law is now listening to...I have IPOD in my hand and podcasts on my ITunes and no idea what to do???
I need
PraisePapa or
JackPapa or LilyPapa or
actually all I could think was
It's The Mama's and The Papa's

This is why I really came by though... I am leading Stepping Up and
oh! my! goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Week One and the Psalm 121 song by
Angela and Elicia...not one of us had a dry eye nor could we move for a few seconds ...and it happened again in Week Two with your Stand in Awe song...Travis, I can find no words to tell you that song so brought God to us that we may fall before the feet of the One for whom we live and breathe and
thank you for bringing God to us! Bev

Tina Vega said...

Just listened to the podcast and have to say that you were the perfect fit as Frydaddy. Loved the story of how you and your wife met! Happy belated b-day...

Lindsee said...

So fun!

I know that will be a blast.

Now, I just have to figure out how to listen to it! :)


CrownLaidDown said...

I so enjoyed the podcast! You must join them again...with Angela. I'd like to hear her version of you guys meeting. I bet it's good!

And honestly, there was no better song to sing in Colorado than "Annie's song." Although I am still really enjoying the WHOLE CD, Found. Really good!

Happy Belated Birthday, Travis!
My Chris turned 38 last Sunday.
Our oldest turns 10 tomorrow.
And two weeks from tomorrow (on Jackson's b-day) I'll be 37.
Blessings on you and your fam....praying for you all,
PS Strawberry cake is my favorite, too!

Stephanie (Ocean Mommy) said...

I just left the podcast. My sides hurt from laughing. That whole thing about playing the piano at Nordstram's just about did me in.

Have an incredible Sunday

Darlene R. said...

I loved, loved,loved the podcast! It was so funny. There's just something about listening to people laugh that makes me happy! I laughed so hard when you brought up the Cheez-it post! Only Boomama can get so many comments about that! It was also too funny when Alex told his mom that she's not supposed to say "shut-up" when she said that after you told her it was your birthday! Kids don't miss a thing!

Happy belated birthday to you!

Cindy said...

Hey, Travis! LOVED the podcast. You fit right in with those two crazy girls! Boomama asked my question of you; the one about Mandisa (my pretend BFF) and if you met any other Idol contestants. And I know the Travis body double; let me know if you need me to hook you up. :)

So glad to have found your blog. Your music has blessed me countless times. When I got my ipod, one of the first songs I purchased was My Passion. :)

My Mandisa obsession is chronicled here. Thanks for first introducing me to her! :)
