Tuesday Is The Big Day

In just a few hours...midnight tonight, to be exact...this...

...will be on iTunes for purchase.

And it will be on Christian bookstore shelves tomorrow.

I'm trying to think of something clever to say to end this post, but I can't. It's awkward talking about my own CD, so I'm going to be done now.

Thank you, and have a Jesus-filled day.

I ordered the dvd when we were in Woodstock but haven't gotten it yet. I hope I get it soon because I cannot wait!!

It was great seeing y'all in Wyoming and I was so thrilled that we sang Victory in Jesus!!

Many blessings on this accomplished work of God and I know this cd will bless each person who buys it!!

Melinda said...

I've already preordered on iTunes, so I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival! Somehow I missed preordering the DVD in Woodstock, so I'll have to get that too!

Oh the blessings that await those that weren't there. What an awesome time of worship!

Blessings Travis, on everything to which you put your hand (and voice!),

Little Millie said...

I pre-ordered the video and CD at Woodstock, too. Can't wait until I get them. I have told everyone I know how wonderful that night of worship was for me.

Blessings on all that you do to lead people in worship. May all who listen to this be as blessed as I was in being able to be there.


AMENMom said...

If you were going to advise someone to buy on iTunes versus the physical purchase, which would you advise?

In HIS Love-

Holly said...

Hooray! Praying God's mighty and life-changing touch will cover everyone who listens to it.

BTW, did you read my Chris' comment on Sophie's blog? He and I were visiting on Saturday morning with our cup of coffee. Then he said, "Travis needs to have a t-shirt. They could call it a Travis-T." Ho ho ha ha!

I laughed and told him about the podcast and that you indeed have some "Travis-T's."

Have a wonderful Monday with your family!

Holly said...

PS I'm sad that "This is the Day" won't be on the DVD. Please put it on another one, OK?

It blessed me in San Antonio beyond what I can tell you.

Fran said...

I can't wait to get my copy!! And, I pray God's biggest blessings on the ears that your fabulous music falls upon.

Hearts will be changed through this CD.


Melene said...

I'm considering waiting by the mailbox until mine arrives.It was ordered as soon as I was able! Can't wait to listen and worship!

Three Fold Cord said...

I am so glad that Melinda said she pre-ordered...I am going there next! It was a wonderful night of worshipping with so many Siestas and You, our miesta.

Kim V said...

I can't wait...just in time for my 10 hour ride to Hilton Head Friday!!!

Jon and Angie Tyner said...

I don't think I'm going to buy it- looks kind of lame.
Just kidding! Can't wait to hear it!!

Leah said...

So just let us talk about it. I CANNOT WAIT FOR MY COPY TO ARRIVE! Never had a Travis CD that I didn't like and I know this one will not be the rule breaker.

Blessing upon blessing to you and the team.

I was told by Travis Cottrell contact person that "This is the Day" would be on this CD, and I see that it is not. I have been waiting for this song since last August at the Beth Moore Simucast. Is there ANY way I can get this song???

Karen said...

Lifeway is on my to-do list for tomorrow just so I can pick this up. I can't wait to hear it over and over and over again.

Bridgette Jencks said...

SOOOOO excited! Will our pre-orders arrive today, then? Or tomorrow? Or later????? Hmmmmm....

Sherry said...

woo hoo!!! can't wait to download and listen and hopefully get the DVD too, if they can keep em in stock.

Travis, long time reader, first time blogger here. I was actually in Lifeway this past Friday in Richmond, VA, and your Live CD was on the shelf. It is the first of your CD's I've ever purchased and I LOVE IT!!! I can't get enough. I am so glad to have added your CD to my praise and worship collection. Can't wait for the DVD! I will definitely purchase it.

Toknowhim said...

Planning on getting one for me and my best buddy :)

Lisa said...

Please Mister Po-o-o-o-o-ostman..., isn't that a song? I'll be watching the mail.
Blessings - Lisa

JayCee said...

Wendy Pope said...

I can't wait for mine to arrive in the mailbox. Being a part of the live recording was one of the most worshipful experiences of my life.
Congrats Travis. Your music gets better and better. God has blessed you and you are using your gifts to glory Him and draw others to worship Him.

Adam said...

why thanks.. I did have a Jesus-filled day

Kelly S. said...


I've pre-ordered and I can't wait to hear it!

Lindsee Lou said...

I am so excited for two reasons...

1) I am just plain excited about this CD and DVD. Like, WAY excited.

2) I feel like it's just a special little gift because it's being released on my birthday!! What could be better???

Big things are happening tomorrow! Woo Hoo!

Happy Day tomorrow, Travis!


Hospitalitygal said...

I went to Lifeway this morning to pick up my summer siestas Bible study book that I'm participating in with Beth, online. And to my utter shock and surprise... the Travis Cottrell Live CD was ALREADY OUT ON THE SHELF! I was giddy with excitement and felt as though I must have been a very good girl for this delivery to have come to me a whole day earlier than the rest of the world!
Needless to say, I have been singing Jesus Saves and Mercy Seat at the top of my lungs all day! I do have to say that at the actual Live DVD recording at Woodstock Baptist was much more amazing because of the perfect presence of His Holy Spirit that was with us that day! Thanks Travis for helping me usher His presence into my daily life and even my car through your awesome ministry! Love my new CD!

Profbaugh said...

Like others, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the CD in my mailbox.


Michele said...

Oh I am so excited!!! I was there to experience that incredible night of worship. I've preordered mine and I'm anxiously awaiting them to arrive (will be giving these babies away as gifts).

Thank you again for ushering us to the throne of grace!

Blessings to you and your family.

Carlos and Jamie said...

I was so excited because today I can get your new CD! Now I am even more excited because I am one of the winners on Big Mama's blog. This is going to be a day for the record books for me!!!!!!!

fuzzytop said...

Hi Travis - I ordered my CD and I will be anxiously checking my mailbox until I have it in my hot little hands! Although hubby sometimes gets the mail, so I may have to wrestle him for it.... I thought about ordering it on iTunes, but I am one of those geeks who likes to have the CD, with the lyrics and the liner notes, which I actually read.

My daughter is going to musical theater camp in 3 weeks, and she is supposed to prepare a song to sing (acapella) for an audition on the first day. She says she wants to sing "Jesus Saves" - either that or the jingle from the "Free Credit" commercial. I busted up laughing when she told me that.

Blessings and congratulations to you on this special day!


Jen said...

Well I lost the giveaways at Big Mama and Boo Mama, so guess where I'm going after work today!??!

I can't wait another minute to own it. :)

Congrats on this momentous day!

Janice said...

LOVE IT! Out of the ballpark and grand slam!

It is incredible, worship inspiring,fabulous!

Especially love the song "Mercy Seat" whoa!

HIS Child said...

I pre-ordered on your website. I truly can't wait for this blessing by mail. Have a wonderful day.

Cindy- My Life HIS Story said...


and yes, that is on purpose shouting, not accidental caps lock.

Karen said...

I've had it on my desk waiting to purchase it. (and I've been good. I didn't listen to it until the street date either. However, anyone within earshot was blessed by it this morning!)

Brandi said...

I'm listening to it right now and I'm loving it. What a praise!!

Thank you for all the hard work that went into this project. This is a blessing to the Lord.

Cheri said...

I pre-ordered the CD on I-Tunes, so when I awoke this morning it was ready to download to my I-Pod! I can't wait to see y'all in Albuquerque in July!
Awesome CD!
P.S. I miss the information booklet. I wish that I-Tunes had that :(

Sharon said...

YEAH!! PTL!! Can't wait to listen to it!

Bev Brandon said...

I cannot wait to download it on my iPod and go jog around Town Lake worshipping the God I so adore. You so make me want to worship HIM in the good times and even in the bad like right now---they found more cancer and my second surgery is June 9th---and there's also cancer in my lymph nodes, my bloodstream. So as I start chemo and radiation, I'll be spending a lot of time with you in my ears, walking under moonlit nights, so finding our beautiful God. Thank you for bringing HIM to me in my darkest hours! Lots of Love & Gratitude to you and Angela.

Brandy said...

I pre-ordered your CD... When will they be mailed????
CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

Anna said...

First of all - the album ROCKS!!! Thanks for the unknown hours you put into it!

Also, thought you might appreciate this. We've been listening to the CD all day yesterday and today. Tonight as I was putting my nearly 5-yr old daughter to bed, she asked if she could listen to it as she went to sleep rather than her VeggieTales worship cd (how do you rate?!), and I pointed her to where the case was. She ran over to pick it up, turned to go to her room, then paused, looking at the cover. The following conversation took place on the way to her bedroom:

Breanna: Who is this?
Mom: That's Travis Cottrell, baby, he's the man singing on the CD
Breanna: oh! He's handsome!
Mom: ha, yes he is, I'm sure he'd be glad to know you think that! (Putting cd in, Brea still looking at the case)
Breanna: (quietly as she walks over to her bed) yep, he's a good-looking man.

Lol! I thought it was precious! Not only did you beat out Bob and Larry tonight, but you've also got the youngin's swooning! =)

Fran said...

I just want you to know that I think I can sing Mercy Seat really well. *ahem*

I've listened to the CD 410 times now. I know how hard it was to get through it all (not really, and can't imagine)so I thank you again.


Karen in CA said...

Waaaaah! Haven't gotten my cd in the mail. Waaaaah! Dying to hear it!

Anonymous said...

I have indeed been blessed - downloaded for I-Tunes - Victory in Jesus is my all time favorite hymn, and I love, love this version! Thank you!

Got my CD yesterday, and I am thrilled! Absolutely wonderfully worshipful music! Thanks for pouring yourself into this project, and may God gain much glory.

AWESOME!!!!Can't quit listening to it.

E Hart said...

Just got the CD in the mail this morning, LOVE IT! I didn't think I could love 'Jesus Saves' anymore, but I think the live edition is really great! Thanks, I enjoy your music!

Lindsey said...

I just received my CD yesterday that I ordered 'early' a while back. IT IS AWESOME!!!! Thanks!

Kelly S. said...

Got it today....LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! Itunes is great, but there's nothing like having the cd to look at, to read the jacket!

Read Hebrews 13:20-21 this morning during QT:)
Can't wait to watch the DVD, Thanks.

MiMi said...

I've never left a comment on your blog before today, but I can't keep silent any longer! I was at First Baptist Woodstock the night that this recording was made (drove down from NC) and it was an absolutely awesome evening of worship!

I have been so looking forward to the CD coming out and mine arrived in the mail yesterday! I fell asleep listening to it last night and I awoke to it this morning. It has literally been playing all day today and there are no words to describe how wonderful it is!

As soon as I started listening to the CD, I was "taken back" to that evening as you led us to the throne in worship.

I am so looking forward to being with you at Deeper Still in Greensboro at the end of July for another time of awesome praise and worship!

Until then..may God bless you and your precious family! DO IT LORD!

Hiker Mama said...

Your humility is awesome! I love how you worded the post. You are so cute and your gift is such a blessing for all of your fans.
I pray Gods blessing on you and your family.....

Paula said...

Hey Travis,
I'm glad you did mention your new CD as I'm excited to purchase it. Thanks for the info.
Many Blessings!

Anonymous said...

I heard one song on iTUNES and decided to buy the whole album. It's the first time I've heard of you (but I'm pretty new to the faith also!) and I just want to say THANK YOU! This is an awesome worship experience and there are so many spirit filled songs on this album. I'm buying one for my pastor so we can use it during Sunday worship! Praise God! Thank you!

HIS Child said...


I received the CD! It is such a comfort and balm right now. You deliver me to His Throne and the promises over our life are reinforced. Our family is soul sick right now and the Lord's timing is always right.
God bless and thank you for your Heart to Worship and bring us along. I so enjoyed the DVD, and my T-shirt is snappy.
Blessings and please keep doing what you were created to do.

Nancy said...

I got my ordered CD (mine and the ones I ordered for my friends). It is fabulous and I could even hear myself clapping in the background(we were there at the concert). What a joy to finally have it in my hands and get it on my Ipod--definitely worth the wait. The one that I hadn't remembered from the concert that I absolutely LOVE is Jesus is the Lord. That sends me straight to the throne room! God bless you for all your hard work in this gift to us. Nancy in SC
