ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a very special CD. At age 87, James E. Payne, an old cowboy singer (and my dad) was living in an assisted living/retirement center. To help relieve the boredom, he borrowed an old cassette tape recorder from my brother in law, with the stated purpose of dictating his life story. At some point he apparently grew tired telling stories and started randomly singing (acappella) some of his old favorites into the recorder. When I visited my parents Mothers Day weekend, 2008, Dad told me what he had been doing and asked if I thought Clay (the owner of the recording studio I work with) and I could do anything with his tapes. I replied, "gee dad, I don't know, I'll take the tapes home with me and run it by Clay". A month later, I had the pleasure of presenting Dad with his first song, Cool Water, but now he was backed by a full band and backup vocals, etc.. As the project progressed, at some point I told Dad that if he would stay healthy and make it to 88, we would throw him a birthday/CD release party. which we did. It was covered by the local newspaper and TV station. After my band played a 45 minute "country" set, Dad sat at a "reception" table autographing CD's and handing them out while shaking hands and getting hugs from the 100 + guests in attendance and in line to congratulate him on the release of his CD. His party was on March 12th, 2010 and he passed away on Nov. 30, 2010. Please enjoy dad's music and remember he was 87 when he sang these songs.
