It was like 'going home' recording these classics songs and favorites from my youth. There are also a few new songs on this album I am very proud of which I think will also stand the test of time.
I have been singing most of these songs live for some time but had never put any of them on an album. A highlight for me was having my father William Lee and my daughter joining me on 'Thank God For Kids'. I cannot think of a more appropriate song for three generations to sing together.

All of my children are singing on this album, and my daughter Elizabeth plays fiddle as well.

'Show Me The Way To Go' is a live one take piano vocal.

I first heard Glen Campbell's 'Less of Me' sung by The Oaks Smitty Gatlin.

My brother Rusty wrote 'What Salvation's Done For Me' with the great Dianne Wilkinson. My daughter Elizabeth played fiddle on this take.

'I Know Who Holds Tomorrow' was the first song my father recorded with The Oak Ridge Boys.

I recently got my first #1 'A Different Light' on Cashbox Christian Country Charts.
