ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brooks and Dunn, stole my song: DARLING YOU DON'T CARE FOR ME, their first number 1.
Their first hit, this was before Neon Moon, and Boot Scootin Boogie.
Before that I'd written: LOVIN FOR LOVE, three years before Johnny Lee, put his version out.


I recorded this song in 2010, and put it on my:
FREEDOM'S BAND album . That I never released.
I had held this song back, for in rehearsals, my drummer played it perfectly.
With my health being poor this spring, and summer.
I was unable to tour, my stomach was troubling me, and I had injures ....
A fall, and knee, and foot troubles.

There is a famous line that is in the song, but not on this version. It is:
" I'm Living in,"
"Obama's Nation, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. "
So, I never got the song recorded by: the TWO MAN BAND.
Because of situations beyond my control.
I was not wanting to become famous, from a political song,
The unfairness of governments, and life, you all know.
I Love my fans, and I do have a fan club.
I wanted this song out for the Elections, but November 12, 2012, is the best that I could do.
II thank CD Baby for making this protest song, getting released.
It doesn't really matter.
I have high standards, of excellence.

Being creative in my songwriting is what I live for.
My guitar is my LIFE, that is the fun, is centered around music.

Even Johnny Cash, played this sorta song !
Also John Lennon, Bob Dylan, and other folk singers of legend.
Sang ballads, for the people.
This is the story that needed to be told.
All my Lovin,
Roy Talley
