SHELTER FROM THE STORM - Rock Song of the Year 2005! Songwriter's of Wisconsin
I recommend that you get a copy of Jim Bohn's Sampler! It is good home-cooked music from a highly-talented Indie artist! How can you go wrong with something like that?

Bohn's music and lyrics are catchy. This compilation had a great mix of music, from the excitement of "Plowman," which you can really get into, to "Count on My Amazing Grace," which is wrapped deep in feeling and faith. It's moving and really good. The musicianship on this CD is outstanding and has many contributors. - Catherine Tully - Indie-Music.com
With the gutsy voice of a bluesman, the heart of a rocker, and deep roots in country, this CD is a blend of what Jim Bohn calls "Blues Cowboy" music.
The songs on this Sampler were taken from several CDs released by Jim Bohn and Friends throughout the past several years. The Wisconsin native has performed multiple musical styles in the past 4 decades. All songs written and arranged by Jim Bohn.
Plowman is southern spiritual blended with hard - driving rock n' roll. It's a crowd favorite.
Count on My Amazing Grace is the heartcry of the sojourner looking for solace in the trials of life.
Country Jane was a Nashville Song Search winner in 2004. I wrote the song in 1970... about a woman I never met. I just loved the old cowboy sound ... Mike Sipin's guitar work is extraordinary on this track.
I wrote "I miss my dog," on my wife's birthday. That went over real well...
Proud to be the Son (of a Blue Collar Man) is a tribute to the work ethic of my father... who was one tough son-of-a-gun.
Clear Blue Sky is a tribute to my father's guts as a prisoner in Korea long ago... what he said about the sky being his freedom spoke volumes to me.
Greater Creator is my way of saying, it ain't all about us...
Shelter from the Storm is my life in four verses...
