Dave's Gospel Country (Because He Lives)
The year 2010 was hard for me, and my family. I have three older brothers Mike, Bud, and Dennis. The last week of April my oldest brother Mike died in his sleep at the age of 69. That was hard enough, but then just 6 months later my brother Dennis closest to me in age, also died in his sleep at the age of 62. He was just two years older than I was at the time. Dennis was not only my brother, but growing up he was also my best friend. It was really hard to take losing two brothers in so short of a time span. I was having a real hard time handling the lost. About a week after losing Dennis, I was doing a show and ask the group if they would mind if I dedicated a song to my brothers. Of course they said yes. The song I picked was "Because He Lives". It helps so much to share the story of my brothers, and sing that wonderful song. I have been told over and over that I do that song with such feeling that I should record it. So I now have.
