Album Notes
My background is in law enforcement, having served 16 years. On December 11, 1991, fellow officer and friend, Allen Lipford was gunned down in front of the Sheriff’s Department. It’s a day that changed the lives of countless people, and created a fire that still burns today; a fire to ensure that the lives of those that pay the ultimate sacrifice are never forgotten.

Shortly after Allen’s death, I wrote “They Will Be Remembered” for Allen’s mother; a song meant to bring honor and glory to our fallen. The University of TN (UT) worked with meto produce a memorial video. The song was selected to be performed at the National Police Memorial Candlelight Vigil in Washington DC.

“The Thin Blue Line” was the second song I authored in honor of the fallen, and again UT produced a memorial video. This song, too was performed a different year at the National Candlelight Vigil.

Since, I've continued to write similar songs which are used nationally. Songs such as “Unforgotten Heroes of the Badge” which was performed at the Nation’s Capital during the National FOP Ceremony and “Let These Walls Keep Our Heroes Alive” in 2017. I have been fortunate to take part in memorial ceremonies in throughout the country and continue to write.

On & On They Stand (Our Heroes) is being released in May, 2019 with a performance in Washington, DC for COPS (Concerned of Police Survivors) as part of National Police Memorial Week. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member, and good friend Willie Kitchens provided lead and background vocals for the song. Barbara Kitchens, Renee Woods, & Dwan Austin provided background vocals. The song was recorded at Arch Audio Recording Studio in Chattanooga, TN.
