Times Like These
I cannot imagine a world without music. I take all music personally, but for me, the best songs are the ones who shine lyrically. These days so many songs are sold based on a catchy melody alone and many people don't even listen to what the song is saying. A song is a story in the fact that it has a beginning, middle and an end. Hopefully the lyricists have a story fine enough to risk putting pen to paper. The story can be sad, heartbreaking, funny, witty, charming and a whole host of other adjectives but above all we should strive to tell it brilliantly no matter what it is. When you combine that type of story writing with great melodies the result will be something magical in any music genre. I choose country music as my genre because for me it's where I can get the best stories. I have practiced all of the above criteria in writing and co-writing on this album and I hope you enjoy my brand of 'country music' because it is genuine and from the heart. Thanks in advance for your interest in the album.
