Well, no stopping it. It seems the way of the future.
Tell us how you record your song.
Have a home studio. Some players like Nashville great Brent Mason played the lead on this one.
Tell us the story behind the song.
Just seems like a motivating song to me that I would say “One of these days” and got tired of saying that line. So out of a well-rooted discontent, I wrote the song with Elizabeth Mosselll.

Well, I have been offered three contracts and didn’t take them. It just didn’t feel right. I was working with my idol at the time and pretty much put music on hold. I thought I would just do it for fun and pass it on to my kids…here I am!
