THE GETTING HERE

To make a long story short....
I drove to Nashville from Virginia in the early nineties in an old truck with a TV and clothes in back, my life savings ($2,000) in my pocket and my "singin'" dreams in my head. I paid five months rent on a place in advance, got a day job (mail order at the Country Music Hall of Fame) and a night job (dishwashing at the Bluebird Cafe) to make ends meet. I played and sang for anyone who'd listen.

To make a long story short....
I met my wife at my day job. We were married six months in and immediately started having babies. We took in roommates to help pay the rent and had the babies at home because we had no insurance. We had no idea we had nothing; just kept the faith, kept raising our kids, "making ends meet", and chasing my dream, together.

To make a long story short....
A few people went out on a limb for me and believed in my. Some artists started taking notice in my songwriting. Kenny Chesney recorded one of my songs, then Gary Allan had a hit with one, then Kenny again, Billy Currington, Tracy Byrd, Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw, George Straight, Garth Brooks, Montgomery Gentry, Eric Church, Rodney Atkins.... I have been blessed.

To make a long story short....
Meanwhile, I have been watching, listening, humming and writing about the real world and what's gone on in America in my lifetime. I still believe in hard work, dreams, God, family, our Military, responsibility, accountability for the choices we make and the freedom to make those choices.

To make a long story short....
I believe we all need reminding from time to time, there are more of us that believe in everything America was founded on that those that don't.

Thanks for listening. May God bless America and God bless you.
