Warm Weekend CD Giveaway!! - Christine Kane

It looks like it might just decide to be sunny this weekend! It might even feel a lot like summer!

So, in honor of all the things blooming and hatching and singing – I’m giving away 15 copies of my brand new CD!

Here’s what to do:

Step One: Leave a comment below.

Step Two: There is no step two!

That’s it!

No muss. No fuss.

So, leave a comment below before 5pm EST on Sunday. My dog and I will do a drawing from all the names on Sunday night, as my husband stands guard to make sure my dog doesn’t cheat. (She’s partial to people who blog about their animals.)

If you want to read more about the CD, click here.

I’ll post the names of the winners on Monday morning, and they can send their addresses to me after they have won. Winners will be responsible for checking back on Monday.

CD will be shipped the week of June 22.

Happy weekend everyone!

    dang! i missed it.

  • anna

  • Christine Kane

    Okay, so it’s Sunday night! This will be the cut off point – and I’ll do the drawing from the names that have commented above this. Any duplications, etc, will be made into one name. And I’ll announce the winners on Monday!

    Thanks so much for the amazing comments! I’m so moved by everything you all wrote to me – I’m so blessed. Thanks!

  • Dave

    Why do I want this CD? I want to give and share your music to someone else. Your music brightens our home many days. Thank you so much!

  • Trudi

    What a great idea! I am unemployed for the first time in over 25 years taking my first big leap of faith toward an authentic life.

    Your words and music have been such a rock for me these last few years and have given me the strength to risk being who I need to be…I would be honored and blessed to hear your newest CD and sure could use more of your powerful inspiration.

  • Judy S

    Oh, how wonderful to win a CD of yours… thanks for the offer… J

  • michael

    I need more sweet sounds in my life.
    Best Wishes!

  • Faith

    Hee, takes a while to scroll past 220 other entries to get to the entry form when on my cellphone! πŸ™‚ Nice way to see how many lurkers are reading the blog! Would love a copy of your CD, and free fits the budget a bit better now that I’m working for my husband’s company. Doesn’t pay anywhere near as much as the one that laid me off last year, but much more flexible, and it makes me a lot happier!

  • Kate

    Thanks for everything you do Christine–can’t wait for the new CD!

  • Sharon

    …tossing my hat in the ring! All the best wishes for great success!

  • Deanne

    Congratulations on a new CD! Cheers

    Thanks, Christine, for all you do and for inspiring me! Glad I took the time this morning to catch up on your blog posts. Best wishes for success!

  • Lori A.

    Looking forward to hearing the CD!

  • Penny

    Every once in a while, I send my husband one of your posts. He says, “I really don’t like self-help stuff, but hers is really helpful!”

  • Mary Miller

    Ohmygoodness!!!You are too much fun Christine,congrats on releasing your sparkly new CD. I am giddy with anticipation, as are Sunny the Pit-Lab mix, Roadie the Beagle with Bassett Ears,and the feline vixens Emmy-Lou & Lilly-Belle.Now,can I use my boyfriend, Ken, changing your guitar strings at the Columbus Six String Concert last year to help leverage a win…oh, hey wait…better idea…I will suprise him with the CD…thus continuing the giving cycle……AND…then he can share it with all of the abovc mentioned PAWns (oops! I mean pets) & ME. Tee!Hee! Your sweetness & generosity rock Christine, thanks for creating so much fun! Oh yeah, and I’m not mentioning names, but if I win, somebodies gonna get Mother Hubbard Biscuits in their mailbox. Thanks Mickey, for upholding the integrity of the judging process.:)

  • Banny

    You have been a tremendous inspiration to me through your songs, your blogs, your humor, your retreats and your life. Thanks Christine. You Rock!

  • i let it go

    What a lesson to be learned here–that an awareness of the beauty and growth around you (being wide awake) inspired grace and a giving attitude in you. I hope I will remember and act on this lesson in the future. Many blessings!

  • tracy m

    I found your site sometime last year and I keep coming back for the wonderful and timely words of wisdom. This seems like the perfect time to post a comment. πŸ™‚ Thank-you for being a bright spot in my day!

  • Julie

    Wow, so many replies – good luck everyone.

  • Diana S. McCall

    I enjoyed reading your post about Imperfect Action. I have experienced similar crises in my life which have turned out to be blessings–being hired to be a backpacking guide when I hadn’t gone backpacking since I was six. . . and more recently being hired to teach yoga before becoming certified. I have often discovered that we are more ready to teach/ lead than we know. That we have more to offer than we are. I agree with you–accept the invitation, imperfect though we are.

  • Sylviane Le Cann


    For several months now, I have been a fan of your newsletter, I print your advices, it is a language exercise for me(I am French), but the number one (no, I ‘ve learned to say AND instead BUT)they are all the positive things you teach us, and for that, a great thank you!
    I wish you a great success with your song!

  • Pidge Meade

  • Jeri

    What a generous offer, I hope so much that you and your dog pick me πŸ™‚

    I love the description of your new CD…about courage and creativity and living your life out loud. It’s going to be a good one, I just know it, and timely for me right now, too!

    Looking forward to your new creation!


  • Kirsten

    I really enjoy your music, and your blog as well. I’d love to win a CD!

  • Sukie Curtis

    Sunny here in Maine, too, finally! And I LOVE the title of your new CD–living Wide Awake is a wonderful goal to aim for. And even if I’m not one of the chosen 15, it’s a great idea for a give-away!

  • robert

    I look forward to hear your beautiful music.
    Thank you

  • harriet

    Do I get extra points for having stopped to rescue a dog out of the road today? She was a beautiful Chesapeake bay retriever who ran right up to my truck ready to go for a ride.

    How about for taking my fabulous four-legged for a hike (just the 2 of us) and swim (just her) at a nearby state park the other day? By the way, she loves it when I play thigh-drums to “Now That You Know”.

    OK, how about I’m just feelin’ lucky? Even if I have to pay for it, I have no doubt I’ll be a winner.


  • voni

    How can I make my comment smell more delicious?

  • Stacey

    I already pre-ordered my CD but if the universe (and your sweet dog) want to gift me with a CD I’ll be happy to pass the gift! It would be wonderful synchronicity since I am also taking your Uplevel program and just launched my new business today!

  • Angela Rockett

    It’s finally been warm here too. I have to admit that I haven’t heard your music yet, but I’ve heard wonderful things about it, so winning your new CD would be great!

  • Lynn

    I’ve already ordered the download but would love a CD, too. That way I can give the CD to someone who hasn’t yet discovered your music!

  • Gabrielle

    Macey (my pup) and I would like to throw our names into the hat for this generous drawing.
    btw, i LOVE the photo on the cover…the chair, lighting, textured walls, contrasting bold and soft colors, and the thoughtful smile on your face:)

  • Lynne

    My three dogs and I LOVE your music! And yes, they have been blogged about extensively on my blog… (although I have been taking a bit of a blogging hiatus since January, I think it is perhaps time to get back on board with it!).

    Congrats on the new CD… whether I win it or I buy it, I am very much looking forward to listening to it!

    All the best to you and your co-picker! (As “mom” two two border collie rescues (and a golden retriever), I’m particularly fond of your little pup’s pictures… she looks like she might have a bit of border collie in her too!)

  • Monica

    I came across your Nine Simple Solutions for Procrastinators article while surfing (a.k.a-procrastinating). Your tips have been extremely helpful. I have applied them and great things are happening!


  • Jen

    Congratulations! My best wishes to you.

  • Bob Rankins

    Congratulations on your new CD Christine. All the best to you.

  • Lalah

    Ooo! Me! Me!

    Christine, I’m so sad to be coming to the end of my first 49 day period. Yes, I can (and most definitely will) be doing it again, but the first time is the only time it’ll be new, you know? Thanks for influencing my life so sweetly.

  • Pat McAnally

    congratulations on the new CD and for bringing such warmth with your posts. My shepherd Beauty sends happy vibes your way. here’s to a great weekend, Pat

  • Mary

    We shall see – Anna Belle is sleeping and probably won’t appreciate your CD – she DOES however love live piano….so maybe if I turn it up real loud. My cat Rosie – would like it as she does NOT like us playing piano because she would rather sit on the bench!

  • Sol

    Big fan and listener from Whole Wheat Radio.

  • Marilyn

    Fun giveaway. If it helps to convince your pooch, tell her this: When my Cocoa (shih tzu) was a baby, he was often very sick. I’d take him downstairs to sleep on the pullout sofa at night so that his rapid release of fluids in all directions would not wake the rest of the family. I was pretty scared for him on a few nights, and when the two of us couldn’t sleep, I’d try to think of the most healing, love-filled music that I had in my library. We would drift in and out of sleep with none other than Christine Kane playing softly in the background. The music worked…he’s a healthy, happy 1 1/2 year old and those scary days are far behind us! Thanks, Christine for your healing, joyful, happy work – looking forward to the new release!

  • Erin S.

    I could really use something to lift my spirit. In the last month I found out that my Amazon parrot has lymphoma and my 12 year old lab/greyhound mix (the love of my life) has a mass in her left lung. Christine can always make me smile.

  • Brooklyn

    Hi Christine!

    I have been lovingly enjoying your music for years and even though there’s a only a slim chance I will win…I’m going to throw my name in the hat and hope for a lucky streak!

    Thank you for your generosity!


  • Erica

    Christine–thanks for the greens explanation in your ezine. I’ve NEVER been able to eat that stuff, but I tried it your way. Wow. I had seconds. Can’t wait to hear your new cd, winner or not.

  • Lael

    Whoo Hooo!

  • Kaje

    I feel so ashamed . . . I read only so far as “FREE” and neglected to look further to see that Ima is involved. Please let her know that Garrath (the hot, red doxie in South FL.) would gladly set-up an account for her @ Three Dogs Bakery in downtown Asheville, thereby supplying her with a years’ supply of treats . . . on him.

    I am simply relaying the message.

    I’m using my Mom’s computer. Please don’t tell her. I’m a 2 1/2 month old golden retriever & I heard you have a dog. I didn’t get my mom anything for Mother’s Day except a bunch of chewed up things. I’m hoping to win this CD so that she will forgive me. Please please please.
    I dance every morning w/ my Mom. But she needs some new music!!!!

  • Martha

    here’s my Official Reply and entry into your fantabulous contest. thanks!

  • Kiki

    That is incredibly generous of you! I would love to get a CD! Especially because being chosen for one would literally come “right outta nowhere”!

  • Judi


    I love your music! In fact, I listen to a lot in my classroom while students are writing, and while I’m planning my lessons. I find your words to be really inspirational.

  • Fiona

    As an animal person, I completely relate to your dogs biases. πŸ™‚ Thank you, Christine, for all you do. I am grateful.

  • Lara

    Talking about your music and blog has been the best conversation I’ve had with my dad in a long time! Thanks! Hopefully, this CD will be the impetus for another.

  • Joe Hauckes

    Hey Christine,
    I don’t comment here often, but I already have two autographed CD’s of yours
    (from SOBCon 07-08, I missed 09).
    It would be a real treat to get another (signed of course) to add to my collection of your music. πŸ™‚

  • Bonnie

    I was going to leave a comment yesterday about my next imperfect action, but I realized I needed to get off the computer and just get to work. I guess I’ll leave a comment today instead because 1) I’ve done some work in my studio (3 hours!) and so can give myself a little computer time, and 2) I might win a CD. Yay!

    Hope you get the sunny weekend you are hoping for.

  • Dawud Miracle

    Oh, I feel like such a groupie. Is it bad that while I love your music I find you, as a soul embodied, even more interesting and endearing?

    All prayers for your success. Win or buy, looking so forward to the new CD.

    God Speed…

  • eileen

    My cat YoYo has been patiently waiting for your new CD to be released.

    – Eileen

  • Lorraine Michelle

    p.s. how wonderful to include us all in the formation of your cd. The picture you have chosen, once again, and always, has captured YOU perfectly!

  • becky nielsen

    Does my husband count? – he considers himself a bear in training; practices being a curmudgeon, but is actually a teddy.

    Congratulations on the new CD!

  • Lorraine Michelle

    Christine –
    Sill wondering.. Where is your Dogbook?? Poor pup! Where’s the love?

    I post definitions on my facebook page daily, real life experiences that embody a word. Today’s will be in honor of you, with a link for your new page! Friends are so used to receiving youtube wishes from me of your music already (I’m With You, Loving Hands… so many)… that this will be really no surprise! I WILL BUY YOUR CD ANYWAY (because as an artist, I want support your art so you can afford to continue to do it!) BUT HOW WONDERFUL TO HAVE ONE TO GIVE AWAY TO AN UNSUSPECTING NEW LISTENER! Like anonymously buying lunch for elderly people eating alone… or better yet… joining them. (still buying anonymously). For always being Head Strong and Heart Brave… for being a living example… We stand in ovation!!

    Much Love,

    Your definition ma’am:

    KANE \ˈkān\
    n. A state of being wide awake. Courageously
    adj. Creatively Courageous. Consciously Creative.
    v. To not just sing, But to be the Song.

    When I turned 40, the Kane in me stirred, and I stopped taking seconds for granted.

    It is not just enough to live boldly. Instead, experience the Kane life with all your soul, as if your true self depended on it. Because it does.

    I won’t just wake up tomorrow and live authentically, I will Kane!!

    Hi from an old fan from Drury πŸ™‚

  • Christopher

    I’m really looking forward to the new record, whether I pay for it or get it for free πŸ™‚ Honestly, your blog posts about giving more have inspired me to share my money with my family more, tip more, donate more, etc. I always hung onto money to feel safe/secure, not because I only wanted it for myself. But, I’ve found that when I give, it feels good, the people on the receiving end are helped, and as I look at my finances at the end of each month, it’s not very noticeable. Anyway, thanks again for passing along some inspiration. Peace.

  • Lilith

    See, this is what makes people step out of the lurkdom and actually leave a comment! I’ve been reading your blog for some months now, but never got to comment on the articles. I hereby promise to leave a comment under articles that touch me and help me.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Laura

    Haven’t heard your music (yet)… Hope to win a CD so that I can be fan too!

  • Luci

    I was just listening to the Uplevel Your Life Call mp3 this morning … so lovely to see this offer appear in my feed.

    I’m in a deep grieving place these days, not quite ready to do a major Upleveling, but your music is always amazing for my mood.

  • Scott

    Aargh! No doubt THIS far down, I’ve lost out on the freebie. Oh well. Congratulations on the new CD!

  • Positively Present

    πŸ™‚ Exciting!! I’m looking forward to hearing the new stuff…whether I win or not.

  • Kim Gillikin

    Looking forward to hearing the new CD! My dog loves to listen to your other CD’s with me, I know she can’t wait to hear this one!

  • sheista

    You look beautiful on your cover!

  • Sheri Kling

    Looking forward to hearing the new material! So sorry about your kitty.

    I’m so excited about the new CD, Christine! Congratulations on getting it done and the release, and thank you for all that you offer to the world. πŸ™‚

  • Moose

    Not that I would ever encourage or engage in cheating, but I used to love to blog about this sweet dog. But since I won’t sink (ahem) to using cute pictures of dogs to influence your pup’s decision, I’ll just say: Hello! Thanks for your blog!

  • Kostandinos

    Found you from a RT on Twitter by Stranahan. I’m always looking to check out new music, and this is a great idea doing a CD giveaway on your blog! Best of luck! πŸ™‚

  • Linda

    My dog loves listening to music as much as I do – so maybe your dog will pick me!

  • Lori

    well I was about to blog about my dog, when she suggested I write a comment here first, as she’s been wanting to get the new cd as much as I have and saw this as a perfect chance to also express her great admiration for you as an artist and for you and your husband as exceptional animal companion champions. Yes, my dog is a big ‘ol suck up, but she speaks truthfully and honorably (and for us both!). Thanks for the music and motivation … and in reference to your great greens post, if you bunch up the curly greens leaves and roll them up, you can slice them thinly without losing control. peace.

  • Rose

    The winners sure will be lucky people!

  • Amy

    Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

    What an amazing person you are, Christine!! You simply never stop GIVING to the world!!!

  • Pam

    What does it say about a person’s wealth mindset if they are willing to jump through a hoop for something free?

    P.S. Congrats on the release of your CD!

  • Kay

    Another lurker coming out of hiding for the chance at winning one of the copies of the CD πŸ™‚

    Definitely wondering how your dog helps choose a winner, though!!!

  • Amy

    I honestly can’t remember how I found your blog the first time, but during the time I have been subscribed to it, it has provided me much inspiration and set me back on the right track or back into the right frame of mind more often than I can remember. Thank you so much for all the hard work you are doing here. I really appreciate it, and I’m sure many others do as well!

  • Giulietta

    Hi Christine,

    Wide awake cover is gorgeous. Love the hair/photo. Glad you’ve stopped sleepwalking …

    Thanks for an opportunity to “receive” this gift. My cats, Valentino and Casanova, are rooting for me!

    Enjoy your weekend.


  • Jeanne

    I have listened to your wonderful music online and I am constantly inspired by your newsletters. My finances being what they are, I constantly daydream about attending one of your retreats. I think you put the “treat” in retreat! As a fellow musician, I can’t tell you how you’ve help me change bad habits into healthy ones. Thank you! My fingers are crossed. As well as my toes!

  • Kim

    I’d love to add your newest CD to my music collection. I was quilting last night while listening to you. It was lovely.

  • Beth

    My two year old is now a fan of your music – he danced around the living room with his puppy yesterday πŸ™‚

    Really looking forward to your new CD!

  • Chookooloonks

    Hi Christene

    Yours posts are so powerful and inspiring. Keep doing this divine service.
    GOD Bless..I am pretty excited to see this new CD.Your music is simple awesome.

    with love

  • Carey Cook

    Christine my cat Maggie deserves to win your CD because she listens to your music as she sits on the roof of my car. A sudden burst of rapture will then bring her to slide down the windshield on her feet which is then concluded with a back roll and shout out for me to rub her buddah belly.

  • sharon

    You are one of my favorite artists! Whenever I’m having a bad day you are the person who pulls me out of it!! Come back to Fort Collins, CO

    As a reply to Alfred Whitehead’s quote on facebook.
    Evan Z. at 10:35am May 29
    I would say there are only true “advances” by the measure of health, happiness and safety readily available to people, wildlife and natural habitat – everything else seems like the slow decaying de-evolution of the planet. Sustainability is the most authentic form of advancement. The number of operations we can perform without thinking about them sounds like the universal numbing of what otherwise might require intention, thought and skilled practice.

    Can’t wait to get you back to the Roaring Fork Valley, Christine.

  • Mike

    I love your music. Hope to see you back in Chattanooga soon.

  • Johanna

    LOVE your music.. I’ve seen you play several times, and you always AMAZE me. Best wishes with the latest endeavor.

  • Harry

    Who are you, exactly?

  • krista

    I’m believing! Stumbled upon your blog yesterday when I googled ‘vision board tips’. Checked out your music too. Great stuff, especially for lyric junkies like myself. I’m all about the words. Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Leanna

    Have a wonderful weekend! My dog is a husky/shepherd mix who loves to listen to 4 Legs Good, 2 Legs Bad.

  • Jo Hawke

  • Kaje

    Thanks, Twitter.

  • julie

    Congratulations, Christine! Blessings to you!

  • Susan

    Wishing you wonderful days ahead. Good luck with the CD. Love your music!

  • Kaje

    I (we) would be HONORED to receive your new C.D. as a “freebie”!! I think, in all of my infinite wisdom, you should pick me . . . I am, after all, your biggest fan (having been @ your VERY FIRST show in the Malaprop’s Cafe, oh so many years ago), and in honor of going to D.C. next weekend!!!
    I’m just sayin’.
    Lots of luck to everyone.
