Run to Jesus
This album was created in many ways. Sometimes I would be driving down the road and a song would come into my head. I would hear the whole song, each instrument being played. Other times I would be praying, or practicing my music. As a song enters my mind I write on whatever is available. Be it a gum wrapper, napkin, or piece of paper, the lyrics would flow from me as a river flows to the sea. I take no credit for any of these songs. I know that God has given them to me and He wants them to go out to each of you. I have been playing and writing music since I was very young. Songs just seemed to bloom as easily as a flower from a bud. My music has taken me many places. My experiences have broadened my way in understanding that everyone is different. All of us have needs in the deepest parts of us that seem to go unmet. Each song that is given to me has met one or more of my own needs. I undestand walking a road alone and standing apart from the crowds. I understand how it feels to be the center of the crowd. Personally, how I handle these situations is to 'Run to Jesus'. His arms are always open wide for me and you as well. I felt led to call a friend of mine, Dale Oliver, during Christmas college break in 2007. I asked Dale if I could get into the studio during this time. Dale told me that it was virtually impossible. The studio usually has to be reserved about one year in advance. Dale said he would check the schedule and check with studio musicians but I should not count on it happening. I received a return phone call from Dale about 2 hours later telling me that there were two days open on the schedule and all the musicians he had called were open those days as well. Dale said this was truly a miracle because two weeks before Christmas all the musicians were closing projects and getting ready to go home for the Holidays. This is how I came into the Zoo Studios in Franklin, TN to record this album. 'Run to Jesus' started out as a miracle before we even recorded it. Within those two days this album evolved. As you consider listening to any song that has my name upon it, remember that a Being much greater than I has sent it to you. May you find your source of help and healing from Him. I give all glory and honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God Bless You!
