    Ryan Love Thread- UPDATED

    With the recent news of Ryan deciding to leave SNC, I thought I should try to start up his love thread again. Though we are all upset that he is leaving, we are thrilled and excited that he is pursuing something he is passionate about. Thank you Ryan for sharing with us your raw talent and for reaching out to the fans on a daily basis. You will be missed!

    Much love from Vermont,
    Marianne

Ryan ROCKS. There's something about him that's so grounded and mature, and yet he's a ton of fun to watch up there, totally enjoying sharing the gift God gave him. Plus, I love that he's a happily married guy who mentions his wife a lot--tough to find that kind of maturity and priorities in stars like him. Ryan, keep up the great work, both with your incredibly talented performances ( LOVE your voice--sa-weeet!) and also personally. God bless you, bro!

I figure I'd post this here.....the Mlive article about the SNC show in Grand Rapids, although very postive, didn't give any specified luv 4 Ryan! I contend that one of the biggest reason that the SNC sound is SO unbelievable is for Ryan and his amazing harmonies!! You rock Ryan!!!

Ryan is sweetest guy who goes the extra mile for chasers. Although I haven't met him yet.

Thanks for the mini Q&A session just now on Twitter! You rock, sir.

Ryan just gets better and better in the 50's medley - and since it was fantastic when they started doing it, he is killin it! Also, love how genuine and kind he is. Finally got to meet him a couple of weeks ago and it was such an honor. Ryan Ahlwardt=Class Act!

Ryan's such a natural performer and (my being form Maine), I think he's "wicked" talented. He always looks like he's enjoying himself on stage. His smile & attitude are contagious. Thank goodness,,,he's feeling better!

Glad to hear you are doing well Ryan!! I could only imagine how stressful that must be on your voice. It's something that we take advantage up, but that's your career. Just know, that all of your singing does pay off in the end. You and the other guys make soooo many people happy with those beautiful voices.

Thanks for the update, Ryan! We are all so glad you're feeling better! I heard a horrible story the other day about Adele having a burst blood vessel or something on her vocal cords, and that was the first thing I thought of when I heard you had gone to the voice clinic! Just don't talk at all during the day when you're not performing and tweet your thoughts to everyone. It seemed to work well for Charlie and Walt the other night!

See you SOON in Virginia!!!!

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone. I'm thankfully feeling much better, thanks to good medicine and rest lately. I think all of us are a bit run down since the tail end of the summer with a lot of travel, recording, rehearsals, and more travel...

We're taking care of ourselves and having a good time on tour so far. Hope to see you all at a show soon.

God Bless,
Ryan

Feel better soon Ryan!

I haven't been on here in a while, so I needed to come by and catch up. Good news is, my husband and I finally had our dreams come true. We are moving from the hot and miserable state of Georgia, to the hopefully cold and wonderful state of Vermont. Bad news is, I won't be able to make it to my first SNC concert. I've had these tickets for months and have been looking forward to it for soooooo long. We even thought of postponing the move just for the concert, but my husband finally convinced me otherwise. I still love SNC and I still love Ryan. Maybe next year.

Hope Ryan is feeling better with his cold! If the Chasers' well-wishes were enough to cure him, he would be back to 110% already. At least they got a couple of days to rest, although it seemed like he was traveling during his time off. Get well soon, Ryan!

@GML - not *exactly* sure what a sketchball is, but my guess is it's a weird-looking or otherwise "sketchy" person!

Take care of yourself, Ryan. Hope you're feeling better very soon!!

Hope you feel better soon, Ryan!

Ryan - Hope you feel better in NO time! Keep us posted, will you? Thanks, and God Bless!

@KristinC - So what is a "sketchball"?!!

Michelle Z.'s picture

Haven't been on Twitter today but saw on the front page here that Ryan tweeted he's feeling a little under the weather today! Just thought I'd drop by & give him some *love*. Being/Getting sick = No Bueno. Hope you feel better soon, Ryan!!

New word added to my vocabulary courtesy of Ryan Ahlwardt: "sketchballs"

Reading Ryan's tweets always make me smile

KristinC's picture

Very much enjoyed Ryan's Q&A session last night also. I know they are all busy recording in L.A., so it was nice of him to take some time out of his schedule to chat with us. Always appreciated, Ryan!

How cool was Ryan to do an impromptu Q&A last night with the fans??? I seriously heart Ryan. He is the coolest guy. I think by far the COOLEST part of him live tweeting last night was how personal he was with the chasers. If someone tweeted him "just to say hi" he tweeted a "hello" back to them. A couple of times he even asked friendly question about how they were doing. The fact that he remembers names & twitter handles impresses me. The fact that he remembers family names and cities in which people live impresses me even more. But to ask something specific about something that is going on in that person's life right then simply blows me away. How he has a memory for all this is beyond my comprehension. So generous, so caring, so appreciative of his fans is he.....the world would have no problems if everyone was a cool as Ryan.

KristinC's picture

Agreed, Lisa; it's awesome Ryan gives back by working with local schools! I'm glad he seems to be having a nice relaxing time off. I do miss his tweets and blogs, though! Ryan Withdrawal Syndrome is no fun!

Lisa N.'s picture

No love for Ryan in a week?? Unacceptable! Since the guys are on break they haven't been on twitter and website much which is very understandable. Down time just makes them even better when they are back on tour.

Ryan seems to be having a great time off which I am sure he needed. He tweeted a couple of times about working with local school choirs - that is awesome. Giving back while he is on vacation! There are a lot of great life lessons that we can learn from Ryan. I am a richer person by "knowing" Ryan, even though I have yet to meet him. (I will in 2 weeks though - beep!)

KristinC's picture

I would daresay Ryan's tweets entertain me more than anyone else's. Whether he's talking about a local store with an awesome soda fountain or bragging about his baby niece, we're always glad he shares what's going on in his life:

Ryan's an extraordinary singer and he's so hilarious when he tries to dance. He's a wonderful touch to SNC and I hope he stays for longer.

Lisa N.'s picture

That is really cool to hear Kristin. Ryan really does seem like such a genuine, top-notch guy.

@Gina, I totally agree. I love everything Ryan sings, but when he sings about Jesus, you can really see his heart.

And since I stopped by this thread, I just have to say that Ryan is absolutely amazing!!

Finally recovered from my AC trip enough to post here. I would just like to say for the record that Ryan Ahlwardt is one of the greatest, friendliest, sweetest, most talented and most personable people I have ever met. He was so friendly every time we ran into him in Harrah's last week. He was the photographer for my profile picture on here, even (I feel bad about cropping Randy out of it, LOL). I also got to meet his parents who were wonderful people. His dad spoke to me every time I saw him on Saturday and Sunday. Much love to Ryan and his family for making my AC experience so special!

Seggie may have been named after a king, but you have the voice of "The King"! #justsayin'

There isn't anything this guy can't put his voice to. I would have to say my favorites are when he sings about Jesus. Ryan has such a beautiful spirit. You read about it, but you can hear it in those songs.

I LOVE the way Ryan does 'Heartbreak Hotel'. It really adds something to the song (hard to explain) when he sings the word 'die' & seems to turn it into a two syllable word. From what I can remember of the original, I don't think even Elvis did that! Just awesome, Ryan
