So it turns out there is now a hurricane headed straight for me. What have I done to Mother Nature to piss Her off so much?? I have planted trees,, had several gardens,, and even pro-created. What more could She want from a simpleton like myself. All in all, I must remind myself that I am a survivor and that I have overcome natural disasters before. The Nashville ice storm of '93, an…Continue

I knew Bret was onto something when he created NMP several years back but had no idea it would become the “place to hang” that it has…..KUDOS Brett. After years of working with so many of my friends and heroes, I went through a time of frustration as the Music Business (as I knew it) began to dwindle. I found myself working with budgets that made it…Continue

It’s been a while since I posted a diary entry. Forgive me. It’s been a crazy summer so far, and it’s only getting crazier!
Every week from Monday to Thursday, I co-write songs and produce and sing demos for pitching in Nashville, where I work full time as a staff songwriter for BMG Chrysalis Publishing.

In June, I had the chance…Continue
