Cloud Number Nine

Here's the video that I made of "Cloud Number Nine" sounds great live too! 

A Hundred and Fifty Dollar Car

A song inspired by the intergrity and spirit of my timeless Toyota Corolla. Soon every problem that needed repaired became a rhyme, and every situation became a bridge to another verse  leading me to see how life is alive within everyone and everything!

Roger and Me

One of the funniest, original, comedian/songwriters to ever pick and sing “Roger Miller”!

I was introduced to Roger Miller at  an early age and it forever changed the way I looked at the world.  He garnered Grammy’s for his hit single “King of The Road” as well as pen other great humorous and heartfelt numbers.

I met him at Harlan Howard’s Birthday Party at the BMI parking lot. He was a hoot! We shared stories about old jalopies and the ride they gave us! 

I think he might have liked this song! 

”OMG I’m Going Out Tonight”

Nashville

My life has always been my guitars and my love of music and the songs that I created!

I was in Nashville in Spring 1991 and I was able to meet some wonderful people. One of the most endearing was the onetime manager of the Grand Ole Opry Mr. Ott Devine. And although we were not related except for our love of country music he believed in me and felt I had what it took to make it. He took me to the backstage of the Grand Ole Opry where he said he wanted to introduce me to his friends where he still was revered and respected by so many of the staff and Stars! I still remember that night and how good it was to have spent our time together.  

 




Poetry Moments

The One and Only Red Gerard

The One and Only Red Gerard.

This poem is about the youngest winter Olympian to ever win a gold medal snowboarder Red Gerard and his journey from his miniature snowboarding park in his backyard to the top of the mountain at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic winter games! https://www.snowboard.com/news/red-gerard-inspires-poetry/

The Here and Now

The place of dreams and inspiration.

You may find the here and now

along the road below the clouds

underneath a frozen stream 

as clear as crystal rolling dream

that wanders like your busy mind

and puts you in this place in time

where your heart has ears

and your soul has eyes

at the foot of where your nature lies

with all the grace that time allows

that walks you down the here and now.

Dear Mr. Emery

Me and host Ralph Emery on TNN’s “Nashville Now”.

When I went to Nashville I had a chance to read my poem on TNN’s “Nashville Now” and meet the longtime host Ralph Emery. When I wrote on my blue card why I wanted to be on a popular show,  I wrote that I had a poem about a die-hard Nashville Now fan! And so when Mr. Emery called my name I went nationwide with my poem. And when he asked me who the fan was I said my father as he held the microphone I could feel my heart beating outside of my chest as I started to read...


Dear Mr. Emery / My Dad just loves your show

/Why I bet he’d fall out of his chair if you just said “Hello”/ He sits there every evening till it’s time to hit the hay and reminisces with you all the songs of yesterday / And when the show gets rollin' he jumps up to his feet / And he plays along with Hoot and Fred and he don’t miss a beat / and when the song is over and you say “We’ll be back with more” that’s when he takes his hat off and he throws it on the floor / Well, I just thought I’d tell ya the way some fans can be / When they live in Pennsylvania with their heart in Tennessee... And then Mr. Emery turned to the camera that night and asked me his name and I said the call him "deacon" and he said “Hello Deacon!" and the place lit up with applause! My brother Chuck said when Mr. Emery said his name, He said Dad had a tear in his eye. Deep down I knew what it mean to him. And so amazed I had a chance to tell him so.
