Hank Cochran...a true songwriting genius.

I am ashamed to say that I did not realize just how many songs Hank Cochran wrote. The list is astonishing. But "I fall to pieces" and "Make the world go away" are probably my favorites. Well, maybe "Don't you ever get tired of hurting me" or "Is it raining at your house" or...well you get the idea. The list is enormous.

So here's to Hank Cochran and his legacy. I'm sorry I never got to meet you, but I will sing your songs until I die.

God bless you,

My favorite songwriter, Joel Shewmake...

If you ever get the chance to hear Joel, drop your other plans and do it. I have been listening to this guy ever since I moved to Nashville in 2002. He just has a way of getting his thoughts across that is different from everybody else. He has truly inspired me to be a better songwriter. I finally got to thank him last night when he played at The Commodore Grill.

Drop by his myspace page and give him a listen. I promise you will like it.

Come join us at The Whistle Stop & The Commodore

My cousin CT Robinson and I are doing two shows this weekend. Saturday night, July 10th, we will be at The Whistle Stop Diner in Thompson Station. We play from 6-9 pm. Come out and join us for some great food, drinks and music. It is located at 1549 Thompson Station Rd W, Thompson Station, TN 37179.

Sunday night, July 11th, we are doing a round at The Commodore Grill, 2613 West End Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203. Debi Champion has hosted this songwriter night for as long as I remember. If you have never been, well I think it is time you did. We go on at 8:30.

Have a great week and keep those cards and letters coming.



My favorite Songwriter Joel Shewmake

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
