I was born a long time ago in a faraway land they now call Kansas. I wanted to be a songwriter when I grew up but realized I couldn’t do both. I thought I WAS a songwriter till I moved to Nashville and started hanging out with Whitey Shafer, Red Lane, Hank Cochran and many others. I soon found out I couldn’t hold a candle to them REAL writers. I just write what comes into my head so whenever I open my mouth my mind hangs out. I was co-founder and owner of Master Mix Studio in Nashville which operated for 33 years. I now live in Oklahoma on a cattle ranch with my wife Carolyn.
