Music has always been an important part of my life. I have many memories of family gatherings filled with singing and the sound of instruments. The most influential person was my grandfather. He played the guitar, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, piano and saxaphone. My grandmother played the paino as did their three daughters. All singing, with voices blending in perfect harmony.
My mother "Norma" can still be heard reminding her son of an improper chord change. And my father "Harold" is still schooling me about business, honesty and integrity. I have always been encouraged by my family to pursue my musical career. They have made many sacrifices to see me succeed including my children, Rachael, Waylon, Logan, Colten, Tiffany, my granddaughter Ashley and the inspirational Charlie.
Much has been accomplished since I started in the business almost forty years ago. I have traveled the United States and Canada entertaining and recording, and have had the opportunity to play with some top artists. I now reside in a small rural town in Tennessee.
A real dream come true and an answered prayer my wife Hope. There are no words to describe someone so loving, patient and beautiful.. She is bound to keep my music alive.
All of this, I am in debt to my HEAVENLY FATHER, HIS SON AND MY SAVIOR - JESUS CHRIST!
The holidays were very busy. We traveled to Illinois for Christmas. That's where I grew up. It was great to see my family. While there, I had the opportunity to give my testimony and perform some of my original gospel tunes at the church that my parents attend. It was a new experience for me. I had never performed with the lights on in front of a sober crowd. As you can surely imagine, I was a nervous wreck. The Good Lord always comes through. It all went well.
One of the most rewarding events of my vacation was a visit to the mission. I gave my testimony and sang there also. This was on New Years Eve. It was a wonderful night. You could tell that the people there were in pain. They had all been through a lot. It's sobering to see where they had ended up because of circumstances. That can happen to any one of us. Be thankful everyday for what God has given you. Please, as much as you can, help others. Not necessarily with money. It's amazing what a kind word or a listening ear can do for someone.Pray for your enemies.
May God bless each and every one of you. Montana
