Lee Sims has that weather-beaten look about him that can only come from decades living in tough wilds of Colorado. He’s got a baritone voice that sounds as big as the mountains and an pitch perfect ear for Texas swing, honky-tonk, and classic country. His latest album, Deep In The Heart Of Me, will take you to that perfect Texas dance hall in your mind. I’m adding “Blues On Parade,” and “Rag Top Baby” to rotation. Preview Deep In The Heart of Me by Lee Sims on Amazon.
I felt that "Deep In The Heart of Me" was one of the best releases of the year. Hope you are getting some good response to your fine release. Best regards, Len Brown Host" "Country Roots" www.koop.org

Howdy Lee........I got the CD today and gave it a listen.....just finished. It's top shelf.....man, the production and your voice are just outstanding! Very well done. I enjoyed every track, but i'm sure you realize there are some tracks that won't fit my format. "The Waltz"....what a beautiful song and such a 'twist'. Wow! 'Texas Girl'.,.... another great swinger, and 'Uncle Joe' kinda hit me hard where it counts. Those, and 'Blues On Parade' are my choice tracks. And I love 'Ragtop Baby".....a little too heavy for my show, but nevertheless, I love it. Great song. It's a great project, Lee. Congratulations. Best regards, Tom

"Back Trackin" by "Lee Sims and the Platte River Band". After reviewing this CD album of 12 cuts, it's hard for me to express my feelings. Why? Because this is one of the best COUNTRY albums of cover songs to be produced in ages! No, it was not made in Nashville, but recorded, mixed and mastered at FTM Studios in Lakewood, Colorado. Our special thanks to everyone out there who had a hand in this country masterpiece. The vocals and 'pickers' and engineer excellent. Lee Sims true country voice topped it all just right. It's great to know real country music is still alive somewhere.
