I'm just a good old country boy, living in Caruthersville Missouri, not too far from where I was born and raised. I grew up picking cotton, fishing, and doing all the other country stuff that my songs are made of. I never got to write for my honky-tonk heroes like I wanted to, but I never stopped writing and singing about life, love, and living my best life. My advice to younger writers and musicians? Jump on that neon pony and ride it into the sun.
I feel like songwriting is what I was born to do. When I can't say it, I can sing it. It gives me an outlet for all the feelings that I can't just talk about. Listening to all kinds of music is therapy to me.
Writing hit songs for REAL country stars.
Ban organized religion.
Streets of Laredo.
I have too many to list, from Alan Jackson to ZZ Top's.
Stories from my life or people I meet.
Every song has it's own message, just as every person has their own story
It can be heaven or hell.
I'm not qualified to judge them.
I like it so far.
Not having enough talent to make my fingers play what my heart hears.
I share others music as much as I can but I can't travel like I want to.
Just do whatever it takes and don't let no mean never.
Billy Tarkington, Harold Mark Jordan, Paul Thorn, to name a few.
