"Wayfaring Stranger" Songs of Faith and Heritage. These are two things that are passed down from one generation to the next. They are also two things that are in danger of being lost. The songs of Faith on this collection have been known and loved by generations of believers and like many of you I have heard these songs since childhood. Sadly, a great many churches are eliminating these songs from their services and hymnals. Their reasons may vary but the result is the same, new generations are losing another piece of their religious heritage. The Celtic songs here also represent an endangered heritage shared by many in the South. The importance of sharing these treasures with new generations is one of the reasons I have included the contributions of several young people on this CD. It was a great pleasure to work with these talented young musicians on this project and I thank them for their efforts and their hard work to make these songs come to life. Their parents also deserve many thanks for encouraging their talent and progress and for raising them to be outstanding examples of Southern ladies and gentlemen.

"True South" This collection of songs is different from the others I have released. Its not a Greatest Hits, its more like a Sampler. These songs give a taste of what it means, for me, to be Southern. The title comes from navigation, finding a true direction for where you are and where you want to be.
Its the real South. The living South. The True South!
