Welcome to Country Rock Corner

A music colleague of mine recently listened to my material and suggested that I explore Country Music.  He said that he heard something in my vocal style and recommended that I should give it a try. As I have always been open to exploring new musical genres - I was up to the challenge.  When I was younger, I had many Southern Rock and Country oriented albums in my record collection- from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band, Outlaws, Pure Prairie League, Little Feat, NRPS to Johnny Cash,John Denver, Eddie Rabbit, WIlie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Shania Twain and Faith Hill. As a result, I reworked a number of songs that I had written from years ago and wrote some new original material.  In these selections you will hear the influences and instruments of country, country rock, blues and gospel.  Hope you enjoy.  On a Mobile Device? Please use HEADPHONES otherwise you may not hear the vocal tracks.  Thank you !
