Having been raised in East and South Texas,
I was exposed to country music at an early age. Gravitating to country music after I graduated from high school in San Benito, Texas,
was a natural thing for me. I moved to Houston after graduation and began driving a truck. The next two years, I played drums for
my older brother, Joe, every chance I got. I then served in the Army for three years. I learned to play the guitar while stationed in Germany,
formed a band and played the service man's club. After returning home, I formed a band with my brother,
Joe, called The Countrysides and played the clubs around Houston. After a couple of years, I left the band and returned to my second love, trucking.
But, I didn't leave music and music didn't leave me. I continued to play every chance I got.
In 1991, I married my high school sweetheart, Pat Mobley. It was one of those meant-to-be's and still is.
Because of her love, support, and encouragement, I started writing songs. The songs on my website are the result of that support and encouragement.
More songs will be added in the near future. I hope you enjoy the songs you hear and that you will be touched in a special way by one or all.
Being a Vietnam Veteran who dearly loves his country and someone who is very concerned about the direction it is going, I wrote
“Where Are You Going America?” and “Save Old Glory”, both found on my website.
