ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CD REVIEW FOR COUNTRY MUSIC ROUNDUP MAGAZINE

BY:PAUL DAVIS
IRMA YOUNG
GOD TOOK A CHANCE ON ME
HOLYWIND RECORDS

Irma cleverly weaves her new ditties amid a competent bunch of conservative Nashville sessioners headed by Gene Breedon. Her non-radical departure into ‘Holy Ghost’ country-gospel territory, a la honky-tonk music mood, finds her in her fully matured colours. Delightfully warm and engaging, her gutsy easy-listening vocals communicates her testimony well in her self-compositions. Modest and grass-roots it may be, but Irma should take a well-deserved bow with these thirteen nostalgic mood-inspiring goodies. PAUL DAVIS www.pauldavisauthor.com


IRMA YOUNG’S BIOGRAPHY

BORN ON A FARM NINE MILES NORTH OF ATHENS ALABAMA WHERE THEY

GREW COTTON..PEANUTS..SUGAR CANE AND CORN..IRMA YOUNG

LEARNED AT THE TENDER YOUNG AGE OF NINE WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO

WORK THE FIELDS HELPING HER DADDY “ BOBBY LEE BIRDSONG “ IN

THE SWELTERING HEAT OF SUMMER FROM DAYLIGHT TO DUSK BEFORE

HEADING HOME TO EAT A HOME COOKED MEAL THAT HER SWEET MOM

HAD PREPARED..AFTER SUPPER , THE WHOLE FAMILY WOULD GATHER

ON THE FRONT PORCH WHERE HER DAD WHO PLAYED A GREAT FIDDLE

WOULD PLAY TO THE DELIGHT OF ALL PRESENT WHILE IRMA WOULD

STEP DANCE A JIG OR TWO THAT MADE ALL HER FAMILY AND

NEIGHBORS CLAP THEIR HANDS AND GIGGLED FROM THE JOY OF IT ALL

IT WASN’T VERY LONG AFTER THIS THAT A MAN BY THE NAME OF
” BOB DONAVAN “ OWNER OF A RADIO STATION IN ATHENS INVITED THE

WHOLE “ BIRDSOND FAMILY TO APPEAR FOR A LIVE APPEARANCE EVERY

SATURDAY FOR A HALF HOUR PROGRAM APPROPRIATELY NAMED

“ BOBBY LEE BIRDSONG AND HIS GIRLS “..LATER ON MR.DONAVAN

BOOKED THEM FOR A SECOND RADIO SHOW IN DECATUR ALABAMA

WHERE THEY WERE A GREAT SUCCESS..LATER ON, IN A COMPLETE
BIOGRAPHY THAT I NOW PLAN TO WRITE I WILL EXPAND ON THE HAPPY
TIMES ( VERY FEW ) AND THE MANY MISERIES THAT IRMA HAD TO

ENDURE THROUGHOUT HER MARRIED LIFE..

IRMA IS VERY PROUD TO TELL ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN THAT SHE GAVE

HER LIFE TO * CHRIST * AT THE AGE OF NINE AND HAS NEVER ONCE

TURNED HER BACK ON * GOD *..WITH TEARS IN HER EYES SHE SAYS !!

YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD MY DADDY READ TO US FROM THE “ BIBLE “
BEFORE BEDTIME “ IT WOULD BRING TEARS TO YOUR EYES

FOR “ IRMA “ THIS ALBUM IS A PRAYER COME THROUGH…I WAS MORE

THAN PROUD AND HONORED TO PLAY BUT A SMALL PART IN THE MAKING

OF THIS GREAT ALBUM BY PRODUCING IT, BE PREPARED TO SEE MANY

MORE ALBUMS RECORDED BY “ IRMA YOUNG “ IF THE GOOD LORD is willing..PRAISED BE HIS NAME.

EVERYBODY SHOULD HAVE A FRIEND LIKE * IRMA YOUNG *
