  1. I’m so happy for Chris and Ron. With not being in the OBC, somehow I didn’t feel Chris always received the great press he deserves. Same with Ron, being behind the scenes. Glad they’re getting the recognition now.

  3. Congratulations, Chris and Ron! I had the pleasure of meeting Chris in Tampa. He is such an incredible performer and a wonderful person. I am thrilled for both of them. IE

  4. I heartily second all of the above. Meeting Chris is one of the things that pushed my JB enthusiasm rating up to 11 (on a scale of 1 to 10). And Ron, well it IS all about the music, isn’t it? And it couldn’t be better. Well-deserved congrats to both!
