And a heck of a good guy, heart of gold), Leroy Deuster (been believing since day 1, passionate, heartfelt, dripping with emotion, fantastic steel\dobro player, awesome husband and friend, example of patience and love, great hair too!), Josh Brown (incredibly talented monster guitarist, can play anything he wants at a high level, great sense of humor, awesome session a live performer, has great appreciation for music from all eras, has become a good friend of mine)


The inspriration for this project came from a number of places, but none more important than these people. These are the names behind the scenes that enable us to do what we do. This project would not have been possible without encouragement, support, late night listening and uplifting, prayers, and advice from these people…

David & Ruby Pope, Morgan & Debbie Baker (they raised me right)

My supportive inlaws

My encouraging, praying grandparents from both sides of the family
