Hi Sharon (I hope that's your name)
Please forgive the delay in my response - I've been pulled in 100 directions at the same time and have had little time for RN.

I want to thank you for your very kind words about Houston Town - it seems I heard from you once before, but you were writing as a solo performer, if I have this right.

I have to confess to you that I'm not a religious man, but do consider myself a spiritual man, and always treat people the way I would like to be treated. I have a hard time listening to music that is dedicated to god, because I don't believe in one.

But I do believe that you are 100% sincere in what you believe and think you have a lovely voice. You're a strikingly beautiful woman too - what a wonderful combination! I'm not hitting on you or purposely acting inappropriately.

I wish you nothing but the best of all things in life, including your musical endeavors, and again, thank you for reaching out to me with your appreciation of my song, which was co-written with the late, great Walter Hyatt. We wrote it together in Nashville, where I lived for 18 years as a session guitarist, live guitarist and songwriter. I learned so much about the craft of writing during those years (1994 to 2012). The lyrics are available by clicking on the word, should you ever need them.

Please feel free to stay in touch with me if my lack of faith doesn't put you off too much.
My best,

Hi Rick...Really enjoying listening to your work. Some mighty fine songwriting been going on here and very good vocal and instrumental performances. Having read through your bio, I see that you've had quite an eventful life so far which no doubt has given you plenty to write about in your songs. Great work!!~Paul
