I'm a songwriter!

I got a call earlier today from a friend inside a Nashville studio telling me I got a song cut!

The song is called "Sounds Like Deal". I co-wrote that with my dad (Randy for those who don't know) It was recorded by Jonathan Harris. He's from the great state of Washington. I got to meet him a couple weeks ago. Really nice guy and a great singer (of course he's cutting the song).

My song won't come out on his new record until January. But you can check him out right here.

Stay Tuned!!!!

Hey everyone. Today is the big day!!! Well the first day of several. We start shooting for 2 music videos with Dallas and his crew. It is going to be a blast. I met with all the "power players" last night and these guys have it together.

Tell your friends and enemies to keep checking back to stay informed.

Video from Hickerson

Went to the Hickerson Hotel again. And yes again, I had a great time. Below are links to 3 movie files one of Michael Mason and 2 of myself. Sorry Jeff Martin . . . couldn’t squeeze ya in there :) Don’t forget these are large files. If you have dial up I would suggest that you wait to download these files until you are at a computer that does use a broadband connection. Because He Lives is 13MB the other 2 are around 7MB.
