Humble Carries Onward

Having done music for over 35 years now I write from home to bring the best to all the world round to listen and open their hearts to . My works are Country,Irish,Gospel,and fit into all areas of music world wide. This album was created of my Best and Most Loved Songs that the Public worldwide has picked to bring to all my Family and Friends and Fans to enjoy. I am a humble songwriter that works to see all and bring out that emotional feel for music . The world has spoken and these are the ones that will make you stop and think and feel those emotions with each and every listen. This is me the real live person who has lived heartache and suffered and excelled in life. No gussy up I am rich or born fantastic , just down home hard work and wants music to stay forever in all our souls. So much music has changed our world but stick to completely the old basics to bring you great Traditional Music that will have you enjoying and even grabbing a box of tissues to dab your eyes. My one song is called " Child Of Mine " wrote when I lost my youngest daughter and grieving so much which still lays on my heart every minute .She passed at age of 36 on 04/06/2016 and my heart died with her.The song is now on charts as # 53 weeks so far and has lessened my heartache some. She lives forever in my heart. At age 62 there is a reason I am alive and I believe it is to write and have my music and Books and videos out there for so many to hear.I have lived a hard life and been through it all and still my works comfort me and so many others today. I hope you will all order this album and download and enjoy . This music is for all ages young and old. I love to hear from my Friends and Fans anytime and can be emailed at : [email protected] My music is yours to enjoy . Thank you all.
