Music should be about feelings and emotions. A good song should evoke a mood or take you to a place or a time since past ; touch your heart or make you laugh because you recognize yourself or someone you know. R. Preston Maddox writes the kind of songs that make you examine how you feel. From the evocative mental pictures of an autumn coal camp morning in "Mountain Memories" to the lost wanderings of a teenager searching for the real God in "Hypocrite", to the all-too-familiar working man's lament of "That Is How The Story Goes" - the music and the lyrics weave a path in your mind to a place you've been before. And it's a comfortable place where you can be yourself and know you're not the only one who has been down this road. MOUNTAIN MEMORIES is an eclectic collection of songs from the roots of mountain music and southern rock melded with an easy acoustic style that makes you want to sing along. Songs of faith, heritage, and humor from a son of the West Virginia hills.
