#1 Music Video for Fathers

Review by Artists Direct:
“I had to this say to get it out of my way and tell my daughter Blue where I was,” declares Blue October frontman Justin Furstenfeld of his band’s new masterpiece, Any Man In America.

He doesn’t spare any of the gritty details of his brutal divorce on the group’s latest album, and that’s precisely why it’s such a bruising, beautiful, and brilliant record.

American Coalition for Fathers and Children:
Any Man in America’ debuted last week at number 8 on the billboard list of 200 hottest albums.
Earlier this week Blue October launched a new website in support of Shared Parenting. Check it out, there is a great feature which lets you upload a photo message to your kids. Share the site with your friends and family members and encourage them to upload their message. Note how many kids want more time with their dads.

    The Showbox in Seattle, Wa. was the latest stop this past Sunday in Blue October’s 40 city tour supporting their new album ‘Any Man In America’ and promoting Shared Parenting. From the show comes this great video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Fvkf4_0YDg) of state Senator Jim Katsama talking with the audience about Shared Parenting. Senator Katsama is a long time supporter of Shared Parenting. While there is still plenty of room for improvement, shared parenting is on the rise in Washington. Note the tremendous crowd response at both the beginning and end of the video in support of Shared Parenting. The public ‘gets it.’ In legislative sessions earlier this year ACFC affiliates and supporters played pivotal roles in the introduction of Shared Parenting bills in over a dozen states. Many of these bills are still active. Kudos to Kevin Turner, leader of our Washington affiliate ‘The Other Parent,’ for his efforts in bringing these legislators to the Blue October concert. From left to right in the photo (http://www.acfc.org/images/content/pagebuilder/Seattle_Blue.jpg) are Sen. Jim Katsama, Rep. Bruce Chandler, Justin Furstenfeld and Kevin Turner. Of note in this particular photo is that one legislator is a democrat and the other a republican affirming once again that shared parenting is an issue that is much greater than any one party and should be supported by legislators regardless of political affiliation.
