Bo Bice, "Freedom and Redemption"

According to the great Bo Bice blog team at Bonafide Bice, several great suggestions have poured out from one of their recent blog posts regarding naming the mystery CD due out on October 23rd the latest release date. The suggestion of "Kicking Up the Dust" is a catchy idea, and proven popular over there with the gals, but my take would be for Bo to provide an insight into what this particular CD might mean for him.

I like the name, "Freedom and Redemption". In numerous underlying themes in Bo's songs, the themes of freedom and redemption surface, so obviously they are important philosophies in Bo's life, to Bo's career. Random thoughts; he's free now 'to be Bo' something many fan forums have been rallying for since the post-Idol CD, largely seen as somewhat a shackle put upon The Biceman by that "evil" Clive Davis.

"Freedom" is one of the most important things we have in life and the one main love of our culture as Americans, our source of patriotic pride. I'd think too it a representation that Bo is setting forth his own man, not 'owned' any longer by the ties hindering and compromising his music from which he communicates his heart, his soul. This new CD is his declaration of freedom, a free new beginning.

For me, Freedom IS life.

Redemption another theme that circulates within many of Bo's tunes. It's a word providing that ability to reinvent yourself, to grow and be 'reborn'. Making changes for the better for those you love and for yourself, making good choices. Redemption from whatever source you may believe in is a gift whether from a belief in a Higher Power or from within your own heart. Redemption saves you, your soul, and those with whom you are involved. Like a wheel it's an all encompassing circle of paying it forward and paying it back, that well-worn karmic reference I like to refer to, live well and good things come back to you.

When I think of perhaps winning the lottery or dream of spending my time, full-time as a writer and artist, I don't review the financial implications or engulf my thoughts with the sole monetary aspects. I think of what really lies behind having a large windfall of cash or being able to devote your life to what you truly love in your heart and soul (rather than what's needed to feed your children and put them through college...); it's Freedom. The most important thing money can buy is not $2,000.00 designer purses, fancy cars or other materialist crap; if you're smart you realize what money can really bring; Freedom. Having the luxury to spend your life doing what is in your heart and soul the ultimate in freedom.

I hope for Bo Bice that this new CD provides everything that lies behind the beautiful meanings of those simple words.

Much Love.
AMENDMENT:
Lyrics to "This Train" written by Thomas Lee and Bo Bice
This train is coming down the track and I'm hearing it calling my name.
I've got a dollar in my pocket and I'm hoping that I can make it on OK
All the years of counting on nothing, well at least its on my mind
If I can make it on this time, you know I'll take it on down the line

Chorus
Well now this train
Is coming down for me
And I know this train
Is coming down full speed
I know this train
Is coming down my way
I know this train
Is going to make it OK

I'm at the station with a bottle and a bible
And I'm waiting on a northbound train
God's willing and I'm hoping that He's happy
cause I know that I'm feeling no pain
All the years I've counted on nothing went by in the blink of an eye
All the tears and blissful years - you learn to crash before you fly.

Chorus
Yeah I know this train
Is coming down my way
And I know this train
Is going to make it OK
I know this train
Is coming down full speed
Yeah this train
Is coming down for me

This train is coming down for me.

[repeat chorus]

For me
Yeah
I know this train
I know this train
Yeah
