I met David back when he first moved to Nashville in 1991. I would end up hiring David to play on most of his demos while he was a songwriter for Meadowgreen Music in those early years. Then, several years later, David would hire me to play keyboards on the Twila Paris "Beyond a Dream" Tour in 1994. David has played on many of my projects. He truly is a humble man with an amazing ability to play guitar and worship God.
in 2021, I did a reunion concert with Newsong at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Va and was able to perform the hits Rescue, Psalm 40 and When God Made you with the guys. Much fun was had by all.
I have listened to sermons and read several of Voddie Bachaums's books. Are you allowed to be a fan of a pastor? Anyway, I had the opportunity to minister alongside of Voddie last year at the Cove.
My Mom has been one of my biggest supporters over the years. Matter of fact, I call her on the phone every time I hit the road and she always tells me "Godspeed Son." She is not only my mother, but more importantly my sister in Christ and I'm so grateful to the Lord.
From left to right - David Cleveland (guitars), Michael, Nolan Verner (Bass) and Andy Hubbard (Drums). They just finished recording with me basic tracking for 2 new projects coming out this summer, Lord willing.
Enjoyed playing at "The Rusty Bucket" some years ago. It also holds one of my most embarrassing moments. If you see me, ask me about it. :)
This was such a great tour. I played keys for opener Clay Cross and then auxiliary keys for Twila Paris. Top from Left to right , Eddie Seidenkranz, Mark Birchfield, me, Chris Willis and Starla Paris. Sitting from left to right Dana Cappalino, Phil Keaggy, Twila, Clay Crosse and Dave Cleveland.
Kurt was the only NFL player I ever really wanted to meet after reading his book"First Things First". I got that opportunity last year at a men's conference in Lynchburg. Kurt was gracious enough to snap this photo with me.
Took this picture at Christmas 2022. I love my family!
Christ is the something in "Something About Us."
2 reasons why I live in Lynchburg, Va now.
One of the other reasons why we left Tennessee!
In 1989 I recorded my first project called "Some Needs To Tell Them." You won't find it anywhere. We made sure of that.
What joy I have with this young man. He loves God's word. He's thankful for life and wants to serve the Lord in whatever way he can. He is an amazing videographer and is a musical artist as well. His songs are absolutely original and fun and very rhythmic. Proud Daddy!
Mikey is my oldest son (named after me) and he won Sarah's heart while he was at Covenant College in Chattanooga. One of the best things he ever did, if you ask me. She is a precious soul and we love spending time with them when we can. He has his own YouTube channel called “Overthrow Disc Golf.“ Check it out. The sport is growing.
Joseph is the son who followed in my footsteps and is in Christian Music. He signed with Gotee records and just got off tour with Steven Curtis Chapman and Jeremy Camp. He is now on the WinterJam. He writes really hooky songs that you will be singing all day long. He's already accomplished so much in such a little time. Go check him out.
My daughter Meghan (my oldest) married Trey nearly 6 years ago. Trey is a realtor in the Lynchburg, Va area and also an amazing woodworker. Meghan is a full time Momma and wife and is a wedding photographer on the side. (She is in high demand these days) Well, they have given me 3 grandkids.
This is one of my favorite things to do. Make much of Christ thru music.
