I'm a lucky guy because I get to do what I love. Always busy recording, writing, performing--thanks to everyone who makes that possible! I try to keep ALL public performances updated here at Reverbnation.com, but if you'd also like to get my weekly emails, please let me know at email@example.com. You'll actually be reaching me, not "one of my people" or some robotic thing. Thanks!
Lucky...yeah, that's the word that sums it up. Just turned 62 a few weeks before this post and I've had a pretty good run, so far. Not just musically, but life-wise, my world is pretty cool. I have my own studio, which is a great vehicle for me to make music as I hear it in my head (lots of tunes, but just the tip of the iceberg, at www.jericat.com). I've played one of the most prestigious venues in my town of Nashville (and the country) twice in a year--the Ryman Auditorium with a band I put together from some of my favorite musicians (Reckless Abandon). I was a performer at the prestigious Frank Brown International Songwriter Festival the last two years (including this year's 30th Anniversary). I pretty much perform as much as I have time for at great songwriter venues in Nashville. That stuff is all dwarfed by having the most incredible wife, kids and friends, a wonderful home and many reasons to smile when I rise every day. While many would consider it a bad thing to have a heart attack, mine was a warning shot last January--I've come back better and stronger than ever. While not a religious guy, my spirituality has led me to two major conclusions that I try to live by--1. Do the right thing. & 2. Do your best all the time. I've learned that love is all about giving and not about taking or keeping score. I've also learned that it's often important to get over who gets credit for things. It's probably been said in this way and many others, but Thank You, World!
