Y'all get on the Levi train tonight for a casual online release party - singing a few songs from my new xmas album, taking your questions, hangin out. All happening on Concert Window at 8pm Eastern. Concertwindow.com/levikreis
Final write week of the year before hitting the road w/ holiday shows. Good vibes.
A little secret. Every since going on the road at 12 years old, my pre-show ritual, even to this day, involves singing a song called "My Soul Desire". The lyrics are...
My soul desire is to be used
An empty vessel longing to be filled by you
My soul desire is to serve you, Lord
To do your perfect will
To live each day and build your kingdom
This is my soul desire.
It helps me remember that being an entertainer is not about how much you like me, but who might be in need of something that is bigger than I. And how I can get my ego/insecurities out of the way and hopefully be a conduit for It. This song has always been my mission statement and my anchor.
So when I met the writer of this song yesterday, on my birthday, I had the honor of letting him know how God has used him in my life. And still does. Much respect, Mark Baldwin. .
Y'all, I'm starting to hear that good seats are disappearing fast for several shows on the Home For The Holidays Tour. If you're in Nashville, Chicago, Lexington, or Oak Ridge, go to my website and git'm now before you have to buy a single and sit alone.😢 But then again, rolling single, you might meet your Christmas crush ♥️ Call me your Christmas Cupid. 🤔
To my new friends at Nova Southeastern @nsuflorida
and Tennessee Theater Association @tntheatreassociation
, y'all touched me last week. I never would have thought that when encouraging you to trust your own voice, I would find a new aspect of my own. Thanks. We're bonded forever. ♥️
We are victor, not victim. We are action, not empty affirmations. We are the vitality that creates the future because of, not despite, our past. Show the world your #spiritualactivism #leadership
Join me tomorrow 7:30 EST for online chat & premiere of my new music video. Only on YouTube! Link in bio.
Howdy friends! Been layin' low but back and gearing up for 🍁🎃🦃🎄. Oh! Y'all, I have two shows this week in southern Florida. Check my site if you wanna come. Missed you guys.
Y'all might dig this. Right now, 100 advanced copies of the new Christmas album are for sale exclusively on my website - one month before the official release & autographed if you choose that option. Can't wait for y'all to hear this. It's a nice fusion of country, gospel, jazz, and rockabilly - a pretty fresh take on some of your favorite Christmas classics. 🎄 Jingle Jingle.
Y'all know him as #hershelgreene
. I knew him as my dad on the first film I ever shot. Over 50 years a veteran actor, #scottwilson
pulled me under his wing for two months on set - teaching me, challenging me and making me better. I remember him telling me how skilled stage actors were and that if I could succeed there, I would succeed anywhere. His encouragement was the first thing I thought of on the night on my Tony Award win. The world lost a brilliant talent this weekend. Cheers, big guy. 🍻
Happy Birthday @jerryleelewisthekiller
🎹My best memory's a toss up between our interview for @nytimes
, (pictured here you signing my Bible), recording a duet with you, or sharing a stage. Humbled by it all and forever grateful. You've meant the world to me since I was a scrawny country boy playing Great Balls Of Fire at 12 years old during family reunions. Being your @thetonyawards
winning Jerry Lee is beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you for the living legacy that you are. #lastmanstanding
Sundays w/ Connie Lee = a Monday full of hilarious memories. #mammasboy
I remember Brenda Lee talking about how grateful she was for Owen Bradley, a well-known country music producer. I don't think he minded sharing his piano with me.
What the 😳 just happened? This morning's write sesh with @nashville_creative_house
was 🔥. I need a 🚬. When y'all hear this one next year, I will not be responsible for your wild and reckless abandon.
