Hi. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy these songs that have been inspired by my family, loved ones, and those events that shape all our lives.
I would like to acknowledge our great men and women in the military and all those sleepless nights their spouses and children endure, and give a special heart felt “Thank you” to the Plouhar family, who lost their son in Iraq on June 26th 2006. Thank you for sharing your son’s memories, the stories of Raymond, and the photographs you entrusted me with. I pray this website will help keep Raymond’s dream alive, his dream of “Freedom.”
Sgt. Raymond J. Plouhar, you are my hero.
I would also like to say thank you to Morgan Cryar, singer, song writer, and producer from Nashville. Without you these songs would not exist. You have been a life changing inspiration to me by helping me realize what was once just a mere dream. Thank you for the co-writes and the re-writes and always listening to my sometimes silly ideas for songs. Thank you for just being a wonderful friend!
I would also like to acknowledge my dear friend Pastor Tom Hampton for inviting me to perform these songs at our little church in Waterford, Michigan (Community Bible) and never question what I might sing about. Without you, I would not be writing still. Thank you for never promoting or acting out “Bad religion!” Thank you for always making me feel like I’m more than I am.
And last but not least, I would like to say thank you to my sweet wife Nikki who has always been more than just a 24/7 sounding board, but in many cases, a co-writer and a great encourager. Thank you for listening all these years, I love you!
And of course, first and foremost, thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me and for allowing me to have such a perfect life. Thank you for my children. They are the best that any man could dream to write about, I love you Kati and Chapin.
And a special thanks to the developers of this website. My mom, the keeper of mementos. Randal Cumming, the engineer. John Roe, the photographer. Bill Morgan, the designer. Chuck Lindsey (AKA the other "Chuck"). And all the wonderful people at Armstrong White.
God bless you forever,
