“My Name Is America” Stays number 3, can still move up, Merry Christmas!

Christmas Greetings Everyone!

We hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!  It’s not about gifts, but love.

Our song, “My Name is America” has held at number 3 for the second week!  The top three spots of the Indie World Country Chart actually stayed the same, so we still have a great chance to move up!  Charting will not take place this week because of Christmas.  We have also broken onto some of the “major” charts, meaning the song is competing with “major label artists.”  How exciting is that?!  We are getting more and more bigger, commercial stations playing the song.  We do still have some other exciting things that could happen with the song also!  Keep us in your prayers.

We had two SOLD OUT performances at The Breakers Dinner/Showroom for Christmas!  Thank you fans!  We have one more Christmas show there this Friday Dec 23 and it is already close to full.  You can still make reservations at  850-234-6060.

We are part of The Holiday Inn Resort’s Big New Year’s Eve Bash this year!  They have incredible pricing for dinner, show, party, breakfast and room packages!  Visit their website for more info:  Below you can also see a couple of pictures from a video promo shoot we did for this.

Our January Schedule is exciting, including Thomaston, Georgia Jan 5, Hawkinsville, Georgia Jan 7, Breakers Jan 13, 14, The Villages, FL Jan 24, and  Apalachicola, FL Jan 27, 28, 29!   See for complete info.

We will perform at Breakers Every Thursday, Friday , Saturday in February.  February is a big month at Gulf World Maine Park too, as they hold their Winter Concert Series.  We have a Big Show with Ray Walker, Bass singer for The Jordanaires on Tues Feb 21!  You won’t want to miss that incredible performance with tons of music history.  Click Here for more info on Gulf World’s Winter Concert Series.

We want to take a moment to thank All three of these incredible venues, Gulf World Marine Park, Holiday Inn Resort and The Breakers, for hiring our show.  We cannot express what it means to us for them to think enough of us to make us a part of their fabulous venues.  It is such a blessing to have the work.

Don’t forget you can order “My Name is America” CD’s for gifts from  Downloads from ITunes and are also available from there.

My band and I are all thankful to God for the greatest gift ever, Jesus.   We are all Christians and are not ashamed of the good that that teaches or brings.  No matter what you believe in or celebrate, we love you and are thankful for you too.  We wish all of you happiness and blessings for the new year!   We hope you know how much we REALLY Love all of you fans/friends.

Merry Christmas and Fabulous New Year,

Todd Allen Herendeen and The Follow That Dream Band

Merry Christmas from Todd and The FTD Band, L to R: Derek, Anthony, Angel, Todd, Bernie, Vic.

Indiana, Ohio Trip and “My Name is America” is Number 3 on the Chart!!

Hello Friends and Fans!

We have Exciting News!  “My Name is America” is now Number 3 on the Independent Country Chart!  We are so grateful America and radio are loving this amazing song as much as we do!  Hopefully we will head for number 1!

Speaking of “My Name is America,”  you have been asking, here it is: we now have a “My Name is America” Ring Tone available for your cell phones!  If you visit you can find it at the bottom of the Home Page!  It is free as a thank you to all of you who support this wonderful song and it’s message and as a thank you to our military!

We just recently had a road trip to Indiana and Ohio for a few shows.  Boy was it cold!  Our bodies have changed since we have lived in Florida and we don’t do cold very well, haha!  We did get to see a little bit of snow, which is kind of nice around Christmas time.  We went up for a corporate event in Ohio so I booked a couple of our old home town clubs so we could see our friends and family.  We had a show in Rome City, IN at my home American Legion, which you can see pictured below.  We certainly did have a fun relaxed night there!  Saturday night we headed up to Angola, IN to Club Paradise, also pictured below, for a fun night.  It was great to see so many friends come out from different states even, just to see us!  We appreciate you all and had a fantastic time seeing everyone at both shows!

We had a free day in between, so we took in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Car Museumin Auburn, IN.  It is a pretty famous place in it’s own right.  Here is a bit about it taken from it’s web site: ” The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, a National Historic Landmark, has welcomed nearly two million visitors from all 50 states and from over 40 countries since the museum opened its doors at Noon on Saturday, July 6, 1974. It inhabits the former Auburn Automobile Company’s national headquarters building, a place where history was made over 75 years ago! Many of the Auburn and Cord automobiles you see driving around Auburn each Labor Day weekend were designed and developed in this very building.

MSNBC News named the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum one of the “Top Ten Gearhead Destinations in the United States.”  It is easy for visitors to see why the museum has received such high national praise. This automotive mecca exhibits over 120 cars ranging from 1894 to 1999 and automotive displays on three floors. The museum has the greatest and most extensive collection of Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg automobiles in the world, and features the largest exhibit of Duesenberg automobiles on public display in the world! This is a destination that you and your family can not miss!”

We want to thank Sharon and the museum staff for our wonderful Tour of this amazing museum!  Below you can see just a few of the amazing automobiles on display!  We hope you enjoy…

Tuesday we have a show in Ohio.  We will do another blog post later this week.
