It was quite a wild ride working on piecing together this new song "life has a purpose" I cowrote the song with the help of good friend and songwriter colleague Lonnie Meadows of the Cartersville Songwriters Exchange. Thanks for your patience, words of wisdom, spirit, unwavering ambition and dedication! It still may need a little more tweeking and work, but I hope you like it buddy. Thanks!

They were recorded in my home basement, aka studio Y in 2005. Wade Queen, Jason Parker, and Greg Melejko shared instruments, laughs, beer, mac n cheese, production, nerves and migranes.
