The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “I Love You All the Time” by Lisa Mann. The song appears on her brand new album, Hard Times, Bad Decisions. There are numerous, terrific songs that could have been played off this disc; but this track is special for its benefit to the non-profit agency – Sweet Stuff Foundation. “I Love You All the Time” is a song by Eagles of Death Metal, who encouraged artists of all genres to cover the song as a tribute to the victims of the 2015 Paris terror attacks.

It is only one of four songs on this new CD that were not written by Lisa Mann. The album features additional highlights, including the title track, and a special appearance by Kirk Fletcher. You can find out complete details on Hard Times, Bad Decisions, Lisa’s tour schedule, and more online at her official website LisaMannMusic.com
