A walk down memory lane

4 years ago yesterday , I just got off at the Nashville Greyhound Terminal. Checked into Knights Inn on Spring street. It was a Sunday. I took a cab to the Commodore and had a steak dinner and glass of Glenfiddich. I met Debi Champion for the first time. I was way too exhausted to play at the open mic at 10pm after no sleep on the bus. Guy Gilchrist was there. After hearing a few of the writers play I was thinking do I belong here? Am I good enough to play in Nashville. I ended up meeting…

In short he is a great story teller. That is what makes a great songwriter the ability to tell an amazing story. Often its about things that happen to us in everyday life. Take the personal…
