This is not for an ego trip, it is not even about leaving my mark in this business like the other greats have done, Paisley/Jones/Haggard and Cash to name a few, however, the very spot I am standing on is the same that those people stood and sang their heart out.
The reason I do this is so when my daughter's come back to the merch table after the show and stand next to me, one on each side and I ask them, What are ya gals doing? Their reply, We want people to know you are our Dad! I have had people tell me that it would be a Sin if I didn't use the talent God gave me, I sing to see my wife's smile and last but not least but to share songs that I wrote with you that can take you to a place in time, in a moment, maybe a feeling or that happened to me.
You see these Crazy times we live in can be hectic and I feel the reason God made me is to simply bring a smile to your face and possibly help you forget about life for just a little while. Many thanks to my many friends who have believed in me, even when I didn't believe in myself."
