Nashville Recording artist, TV and Radio Personality and Author

Welcome to my website! I retired from Country Music years ago but the memories are still vivid of those days of touring and singing so I decided to write down my short stories and adventures to explain what is was like doing this in the 1970's and 1980's.


I have received great feedback on the memoir from many musicians, who were part of country music during that era.  Many who played the same places who expressed how much they remembered after reading my book.


One person (not a musician)  really touched my heart when she said my book was so inspiring that she would read it again and again, especially when she was feeling down.  She told me she laughed and cried but she was so moved that I just kept going no matter what happened.  She loved it and buys them as gifts for her friends.


Times have changed a good deal since then and today's musicians have a lot of different options and yet a lot more competition.


I truly hope you will enjoy navigating my website and reading my memoir!


Special thanks also to those who have left comments on the Guestbook page and on Amazon!


Music and Memories are gifts from God!
