ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DeLon is a voting member of the COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION(CMA) and has been a member since 2002. He is also a member of the GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION(GMA).

DeLon continues to add to his impressive streak on the independent "TOP 200" total airplay charts: Beginning in APRIL, 2006, through AUGUST 7, 2013, DeLon has a total of 86 consecutive CHARTS of being ranked on the Joyce Ramgatie "TOP 200" total airplay chart. Following is the breakdown of this tremendous achievement as this streak continues on:

In April, 2006, DeLon was informed that he had made his debut at the #67 position on the Joyce Ramgatie "top 200" total airplay chart. This chart is published regularly in The Netherlands. Each charting period finds more than 3,000 independent artists, from around the world, competing for these coveted 200 spots on Joyce's chart. You may view the Ramgatie charts at: www.eboards4all.com/206687

Within two months, DeLon moved rapidly up this chart and attained his first #1 ranking on the chart ending June 30, 2006. From APRIL, 2006, through the most recent chart of December 14, 2013, where he is currently ranked #3, DeLon has had a total of FOURTEEN #1 rankings; SEVENTEEN #2 rankings; EIGHTEEN #3 rankings, SEVEN #4 rankings, and FIFTEEN #5 rankings for a total of SEVENTY-ONE (71) spots within the "top 5" of this "TOP 200" airplay chart.

For your listening pleasure, DeLon is a songwriter/artist, who is staying true to the sounds of "TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC", and who refuses to get caught up in the new Nashville trend of "contemporary pop/rock" country music.

"WHEN I MOVED OUT OF TULSA" a #1 song on the independent
singles charts

"CRAZY COUNTRY BOY" a #3 song on the independent

In 1996, DeLon conferred with Skeeter Davis, his long-time personal friend and sister in Christ about what he wanted to do, regarding a career in country music. She directed him to John Rees, who became his producer, music arranger and keyboard player on this first album and his future albums. John assembled an all-star cast of musicians, including Weldon Myrick and Hal Rugg, both members of the steel guitar player's Hall of Fame, and former members of the Grand Ole Opry staff band. Jimmy Capps, on lead guitar, and still a member of the Grand Ole Opry staff band, lends his many skills to this album also. Miss Skeeter Davis passed away recently on September 19, 2004 and she will be missed by so many, who knew her. This album, released in 1997, was dedicated to her and her on-going battle with cancer. She fought a good fight. DeLon and Skeeter had been friends and fellow Christians for over thirty years. And, sadly, Hal Rugg, also lost his battle with cancer during the summer of 2005. DeLon and Hal had been friends and fellow Christians since working on this album, beginning in 1996. His musical talents shall be missed, but moreso, the man himself.

DeLon, a former pro baseball player and businessman, launched his career in 1997, when he went to Nashville to began recording this album. He is an active physical fitness buff, working out 3-5 times per week. He plays baseball regularly, when not out performing in concert. All of this exercise helps him to remain a "flat belly" as the much younger current stars of Nashville country music are called.

In this album, DeLon covers past classic hit songs, made famous by Eddy Arnold and Jim Reeves, who were DeLon's inspiration and major influences, for his beginning interest in country music. You will hear his versions of "MAKE THE WORLD GO AWAY"; "HE'LL HAVE TO GO"; AND "FOUR WALLS". And, as DeLon likes to say, "we country-fied a couple of songs, "HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT" and "I LOVE HOW YOU LOVE ME", using only the basic country instruments and adding a sax to give them a "country-doo-wop sound". His self-penned songs are written from the heart, allowing you to enjoy the stories, the love songs, and the good feelings associated with them.

"WHAT CONDITION IS OUR COUNTRY IN? is a song, that takes a look at conditions in America and asks that very important question.

Please check out his new albums, "HIGHWAYS OF LIFE", released in 2002; "GIT", released in 2007; "HEART TO HEART" released in 2008: "HE'S MY ALL IN ALL", released in 2009; "GOD's Flower Garden", released in 2012: and "JUST FOR YOU", released in 2012.

Just recently, in June and July of 2012, DeLon has placed two videos on the youtube.com web-site. One song is "AL-OBAMA" a humorous look at President Obama and his current economic problems in America. The second song, "GREENBACK DOLLAR BLUE$", from the new "JUST FOR YOU" album, takes a look at one individual and all of the problems he encounters because of the economic situation in the USA at the present time.

TRICIA

IF YOU LIKE THE GREAT SOUNDS OF CLASSIC COUNTRY MUSIC
IN TODAY'S COUNTRY MUSIC SCENE, THERE ARE FEW ARTISTS, MAJOR OR INDEPENDENT, WHO CAN DELIVER A SONG, IN THE STYLE OF THE CLASSIC SOUNDS PRIOR TO THE NEW "contemporary" POP/ROCK SOUNDS OF COUNTRY COMING OUT OF NASHVILLE. THIS ALBUM HAS SOME GREAT ORIGINAL MUSIC ON IT AND THE "COVERS" SPEAK WELL FOR DeLon's ABILITY TO KEEP IT TRADITIONAL. HE HAS A SMOOTH, CLASSY DELIVERY OF THE LYRICS.
