ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I began this journey on Sept. 30, 2000 a lonely broken man...alcohol had nearly ruined my life. Physically and mentally broken, I ended up at an old-fashioned altar in Newton, KS. After I received salvation, I went back to my home of Minnesota; but I soon became lonesome again. I packed all of my belongings in my truck, rented my house, and moved to Texas. This move brought me closer to the church my parents were part of, which was founded by my grandparents, A.G. and Annie Etterman in the 1930's. I had spent my life running from the Church and now I knew I needed to run to it.....what a wise decision that has turned out to be!
It had been fifteen years since I had played my old tenor sax, but something told me to pick it up. Little did I know, God had gifted me with the ability to play by ear. Before that, I could only play by sheet music from my many years in the school band. I sang my first special in Church to a track by the Gaither Vocal Band called "I Do Believe". By the time I finished singing, I knew I was hooked; the Spirit came down and blessed us all. This was the start of my musical journey; since that time I have learned to play my main instrument, the mandolin, along with the harmonica and the accordion.
I am not one to let the grass grow under my feet, so when I was asked to teach a prayer meeting I said I would be honored to. I'll never forget that morning; I could have crawled under my chair I was so nervous. It worked out alright, though, because when you don't know anything it is hard to lean on your own understanding. God took over and fed me with what I needed, and I thank God He still does today. I can not do anything, singing, playing, or preaching, unless I pray for His guidance right before. Personally, I don't have it, but He lends it to me when I ask!!! I have been speaking in churches and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ ever since.
I am so thankful for the fans that are buying and listening to my music, and to Christian country and country radio for playing my music. But most of all, I thank God, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit that dwells within my heart for anything I've experienced and will experience in the future. God Bless all those who serve Him and God help those who don't.
