Album Notes
In 2011, noted composer, producer, entertainer, and Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame member Jim Lusk released his first album as an independent recording artist. This album resulted in Jim receiving the 2011 Atlanta Society Of Entertainers award for RECORDING ARTIST OF THE YEAR!!!! (Jim was also awarded the 2012 Atlanta Society of Entertainers "Lifetime Achievement" award, and the 2010 Atlanta Society of Entertainers award as “Songwriter of the Year.) The title song, “Rockin’ Away The Blues” reached NUMBER ONE on CMG’s Indie Music Network (www.cmgradio.info,) and three other songs from the album made it to the NUMBER ONE - "Me Loving You," "Diesel Smoke and Lace," and "Counterfeit Cowboy." Three of these songs also made NUMBER ONE on the International CMG Radio Network charts.with another one "Me Loving You" reaching the coveted NUMBER ONE position too. Jim’s music is available at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jimlusk, Amazon.Com, also on and Rhapsody, among others. Jim has just been awarded the Atlatna Society of Entertainers "2013 Songwriter of the Year," and has produced number one songs this year by Helen Burke ("I want You Jesus" - produced and written by Jim) and the Hickory Wind Bluegrass Band ("Imagine") along with his own number ones'.

A career HIGHLIGHT!!!!! In 2009, Jim received the honor of being inducted into The Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame with their highest award “The Dedication Award,” where the entire evening and awards ceremony was dedicated to Jim Lusk and his late wife, Laverne Layne. The Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame includes a “who’s who” list of artists such as Jack Greene, Bill Anderson, Brenda Lee, Ray Stevens, Pete Drake, Jerry Reed, Vern Gosdin, Martha Carson, Joe South, Junior Samples, Chet Atkins, Faron Young, Johnny Paycheck, and many others.

A few other highlights of award winning composer/producer Jim Lusk - BMI Songwriter since 1969 - some of Jim's songs include: "Liquid Hurt" which was published by Pete Drake's Window Music, recorded and released on Jim's Galaxie Records label. This song garnered seventeen (17) "pick hits" on radio stations across the South, was a chart topper on Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, and Alabama radio station, and made number two on the WTJH Radio charts in Atlanta, and hit the top 40 chart on Atlanta's WPLO. “Liquid Hurt” has also been recorded and released by two other artists. Jim followed this with his hit "I Need Loving Tonight" penned with his late wife, Laverne Layne. This song was recorded at Monument Studios in Nashville, Tennessee and was the maiden release that started Skylite Country Records (produced by Little Jimmy Dempsey.) It charted in several locations including reaching number one in Kissimmee, Florida, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, and launched Jim and Laverne's career.

In the mid-70's, Jim was asked to team up with former Elvis Presley writer, Shirl Milete (“Life,” “My Little Friend,” “It's Your Baby You Rock It”) and Grammy winning composer Gary S. Paxton (Hollywood Argyles "Alley Oop" – “Monster Mash,” “He Was There All The Time,” “Sensuous Woman,” “Honeymoon Feeling,” etc.) This partnership led to a string of hits which included Vern Gosdin's nationwide number three song "It Started All Over Again,” (The Best Of Vern Gosdin on Warner Brothers Records.) This song was also recorded by David Houston and reached the top forty Billboard Charts nationwide, as well as being included in David Houston's Greatest Hits album. The Four Guys recorded "I Remember" (which was their show theme for over ten years,) "Counterfeit Cowboy" has been recorded by a host of artists, including Dorsey Burnett of “Tall Oak Tree” fame, as well as Gary S. Paxton, R. W. Blackwood, Jay Lee Webb (Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle’s brother,) and others. Australia's top vocal group, The LeGardes recorded Jim's song "I Can Almost Touch The Feeling," which reached the top of the Australian Music Charts. This song was in Graceland awaiting a recording by Elvis at the time of his death.

In 2010 Jim wrote and co-produced the first release by the original Hollywood Argyles since the early 60's - "The Vote 'Em Out Boogie" released on Skitzopax CD’s and Videos, and is currently being played nationwide. He continues to write and produce with Gary Paxton, having co-produced and written songs on Gary’s “Grandpa Rock, Volume 1” album which contained over 51 years of Gary Paxton music. Jim and Gary are currently completing “Grandpa Rock, Volume 2” which will contain many more past hits from major artists, and is scheduled to be released in 2013. Jim also recorded a duet with Gary S. Paxton - "Vote 'Em Out Boogie" which has been released on their new label "Lu-Pax Entertainment." Jim has just released a new album on Gary S. Paxton entitled "AARP Blues - the Album" nationwide. This album is co-produced by Jim along with Gary, and includes three original songs from Jim, as well as some superb songs from Gary S. Paxton. This single, "AARP Blues" is currently playing on stations nationwide. According to Gary "this is one of the most perfectly written songs I have had the pleasure of recording, and is equal to my mega-hit's "Alley Oop" and "Monster Mash."

On April 28th, 2013, Jim was inducted, along with Leona Williams, Jimmy C. Newman, Jean Shepherd, Gary S. Paxton, Razzy Bailey, Randall Franks (Officer randy Goode on "The Heat Of The Night" tv series,) and others to the "Independent Country Music Hall of Fame!" During the awards ceremony that followed, Jim was awarded the CMG Radio Network "Songwriter of The Year" award and the CMG Radio Network "Publisher of the Year" award for his "JimJimMusic." An unbelievable accomplishment -
Today, Jim continues to entertain at music venues throughout the Southeast along with his band “The Counterfeit Cowboys.” Jim always has, and always will believe music is meant to be played “FOR the people” instead of “TO the people!”
