Michael met David back when he first moved to Nashville in 1991. He 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 Michael to play keyboards on the Twila Paris "Beyond a Dream" Tour in 1994. David has played on many of Michael's projects. He truly is one of the most humble and yet amazing guitarists out there.
in 2021, Michael 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.
Michael has listened to sermons and read several of Voddie Bachaums's books. Are you allowed to be a fan of a pastor? Anyway, Michael had the opportunity to minister alongside of Voddie last year at the Cove.
Michael met Steven back in 1995 when he released his very first project. Michael opened up for him at an amusement park in Ohio that same year. He was a always a BIG fan of Steven's music in the early 90's and has admired him for quite a long time. Steven performed at a conference where Michael was leading worship.

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. Michael played keys for opener Clay Cross and then auxiliary keys for Twila. 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.
Michael said Kurt was the only NFL player he ever really wanted to meet after reading his book"First Things First".. He got that opportunity last year at a men's conference. Kurt was gracious enough to snap this photo.
Took this picture at Christmas 2022. I love my family! Me, Heidi, Timmy, Joseph, Meghan with Cade, Trey and Caelynn, Sarah and Mikey.
Christ is the something in "Something About Us".
My Granddaughter. She is one of the reasons I left my Tennessee life for Virginia life.
My Grandson. One of the other reasons why I left Tennessee!
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. He writes really hooky songs that you will be singing all day. 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. 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 2 grandkids, and one more on the way.
Unfortunately it didn't capture the whole picture. But you get the idea.
