New Album - A Little Bit More


Hooray! My new album is finally completed and ready to go. Check it out on my sales page. I'm sure you'll find a song or two you just can't live without. Would love to hear your thoughts on my new album.




Well, folks, we are officially into the New Year, and since this is an election year, we are going to be hearing a lot about politics, but one thing is for sure, we need a new President. I'm fearful for this country if we don't make a change. Okay, back to music. I still don't have my new album ready but it is getting closer. I think we may be able to wrap it up around the end of this month. I'll keep you posted on the progress. In the meantime, keep checking and listening.....and make it country!




Hey, everybody. Christmas is almost here, and it's a "love/hate" relationship for me. I love the Christmas lights, Christmas songs, and especially the reason we celebrate the season, getting together with family for a big Christmas dinner, eating too much and then watching the little ones open their presents, but the part that is frustrating is trying to figure out what to get for everyone, wondering if your funds will stretch far enough and trying to get it all done before Christmas day. Somehow it all seems to work out every year. I hope that each and everyone of you will have a wonderful and joyful Christmas and that the New Year brings you all that you wish for........and try not to make too many New Year's Resolutions that you can't keep!!

Compiling New CD


I'm excited about bringing some of my tunes I've recorded in the past out of the archives and releasing a new CD. Some of the older technology has to be converted to new technology, but I have hired the perfect person to complete this project for me....Mr. Tom Smith of Tom Smith Music in Dallas, Texas. I have worked with him on many projects in the past, and he is the best. So stay tuned, because more music is on its way. I'll share it on Facebook and Twitter and hopefully, that will catch most of my music fans. In the meantime, keep playing music, it's the universal language.
