In mid-summer 2017, I was diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer, which means I had a malignant tumor at the base of my tongue in a lingual tonsil. In the midst of my treatment, which lasted until Thanksgiving that year, I began to try to think positively about what was happening to me. With music being a major part of my essence, I wrote and produced a new CD, I Sure Do Miss My Hair.

I released the title song as a single in the summer of 2021, and it entered Roots Music Report’s True Country Chart where it remained for several weeks. I hope you like this recording as much as I have enjoyed creating it. It is part of my soul, thanks in large part, to my friend Jerry Blanton’s magnificent pedal steel guitar contribution.” Click HERE to listen to I Sure Do Miss My Hair on YouTube.
