Submit Question

Q: We loved your music, especially 'Dead Man's Shoes'. Have you considered submitting a single, album or EP for an award atwww.2015musicawards.com?

A: Wow - what a wonderful complement! Thank you for even thinking of this. After being a studio player in Nashville for 18 years, after doing another 18 years in Houston, I'm aware of an unbelievable amount of talent that most people don't even know of. Plus, my recordings were done at home, on tape, with cheap mics and don't sound polished enough to compete with digital recordings. Lastly, I never thought of myself as a decent singer. DMS isn't representative of my real voice, and I could barely talk for a few weeks after I sang it! But I'll sure give it some thought and check it out. I'd sure like to know who's asking this question. Thanks again!
