Vince Gill & Friends at the Ryman

Last night I treated my Daughter to a concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville. I called it her "Thank you for giving me a Grandbaby" present.

Now just getting to see Vince Gill would have been enough, but the list of special guests was amazing. His hall of fame band included Paul Franklin, legendary steel guitar player. Dawn Sears sang like an angel as usual. Then he brought out Rodney Crowel and Emmylou Harris!!

After an intermission, Vince sang some classics and then surprised us all by bringing out Patty Loveless! I cannot describe how much these two people have influenced me over the years. I'll admit that a few tears rolled down my cheek when Patty sang "If my heart had windows".

Thank you to my Daughter for joining me and thanks to Vince Gill for putting on such a fantastic show.

Peace and love to all,

"When tomorrow is gone"

Happy April everyone!

I wanted to share a song I wrote a  few years ago. Something about it always bothered me, so recently I reworked it a bit. I changed the tempo and rhythm and recorded it again. I read once that great songs aren't written, they're rewritten. I hope that's the case here.

Also, I recorded it using only my ipad and a Garage Band app that cost me $9.99. It's a pretty good demo when you consider it didn't cost me a thing. I am all about saving money versus spending $200 to get a demo recorded.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think.

Have a blessed week!

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."
