For my birthday! Wow!

My dad, (and brother), presenting me, with my dad’s vintage Martin D-28 (1971) for my birthday. As a teenager, I would sit in my room and play this guitar for hours. It’s like being reunited with an old friend. Wow!

Have you…

failed miserably over and over? Feel like a ‘has been’? Think your best days are behind you?
PERFECT.
You’re just the kind of person that God can greatly use to impact the world around you. Amen.

Gospel Music Association Hall Of Fame

Wow, I am honored.
Because of my years touring with the legendary gospel group, Gold City, I recently was informed that I, along with all of my GC brothers are being inducted as members into the Gospel Music Association’s Hall Of Fame.
Praise God for His faithfulness and protection for all of those years of traveling…and as I continue to do so.
All glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ!

Happy Resurrection Day 2017!

Christina and I want to wish you a
joy-filled Resurrection Weekend!
The Lord Jesus Christ is risen!
Matthew 28:6

Friday Night…


The sounds of Americana and Appalachia rang out this past Friday night at the Ringgold Depot in Ringgold, GA. I’m having great time here onstage moving through my set in this pic from Friday, (photo credit: Veronica Coyle).
Special thanks to Randall Franks for hosting such wonderful evening! The Watkins Family were their usual great selves as well!
I was surprised by so many friends coming out to support and encourage me. I’d like to especially mention and thank my dear friends: Earl & Meda; Alton; Staclyn, Emma & Jackson; Ronnie & Jane; Veronica; Leon & Marlene, (from Cedartown, GA) and my beautiful mother-n-law, Tricia and her friends Debbie & Pat…not to mention my beautiful wife, Christina Eleton and our daughters.
It was such an anointed night of healing, (for so many reasons). Great music was shared and there were some beautiful moments of Jesus’ sweet presence filling that room. I was truly honored to be a part of this special night!
