All of my songs are stories, and as soon as I released my first album everyone began asking for country, country, country. So I released a song called The Rebel In Me as a single, and it did well on American radio, but it did really great on European, Australian, and New Zealand radio. Heck, it even turned up in Tokyo Japan. On the radio! Can you believe that? It hit #2 in Sweden, #16 in Norway, and #21 in the UK.
Then I wrote Cowboy Down, inspired by one of my buddies who rode bulls in the rodeo for 23 years. It just blew my socks off! The song appears to be about a guy that just keeps getting thrown, but actually what it’s about is how you always have to get back up when trouble pushes you around.
I’m really pleased with this album especially Time In The Mirror. It’s a classic because it’s about all of us, not together but individually, as we watch time go by in the only way we can, in the mirror. Yeah, all the songs on this album have something to say about money, friends, relationships, Hollywood icons, cowboys, & rebels, and that sounds pretty country to me.
I released a second song from this album and it has risen to #3 in Norway, #6 in Austria, #25 in Denmark, & #27 in France. It’s kinda strange that all of these places have thriving country communities, but believe me they do. They also have a top 100 Country Music Association chart for Europe as a whole, and at the end of October I was informed that I would appear on that in the next couple of weeks. I like that, it means I’ve been spending my time wisely, and I haven’t been wasting any, which I seem to have done a lot of in my life.
Anyway, you should pick up a copy; I guarantee you won’t be disappointed it really is a classic, really!
