Wonder who roboblogger is? Perhaps Detra McVey.
Cody is a tremendous piano player for sure, but didn't he take lessons from Nancy Wood instead of
"trained under (Anthony) Burger, the pianist for Bill
Gaither. Detra pushes for publicity - with her young daughter also!!!!

Parents should support and encourage their children to succeed. Are you always this jealous or does it come and go?

I dont know about you all, but I liked Detra's little girl before she lost all the weight and got so caught up in herself. She used to sing and you could feel it, you could see it in her, you knew it was from her heart. Now she sings and acts like Miley Ray Cyrus, its all about her. Switching her mike from hand to hand and flicking her hair so much she never stands still. What happened to singing for the Lord?

I know all the McVeys personally. 1. I've heard Cody give credit to Nancy Wood. He respects her. Her name is inside his CD! But... Listen to him... Nancy taught him to play but Anthony Burger is where he learned his style. 2. Publicity is part of the music business. Ask the successful people. Why do you think publicists make so much money? That's how it works! 3. I know Eva very well.. She sings more for God now than she ever did. She's extremely humble. In fact she has hardly ANY self- esteem in any area of her life. the moving around on stage... It's called performing. Again, I refer you to anyone who is successful in Christian music... Nobody wants to watch someone stand on stage like a knot on a log and sing. For every 2 people that don't like "performing", there are 2 MILLION people that
do! Don't diss peoples motives when you do NOT know them. Come on people, let's make Alderson and the people that live here look GOOD... Not bad!

Wow "music lover".... jealous much? I'm with the anonymous person. That girl is anything but all about her self. She has no self esteem and if she sees this it'll ruin her. Wow just get a life.
