Personal Quote:

Contemplating mankind's purpose turns people like me into pseudo-philosophers. I feel that life is simply a matter of one foot in front of the other and down the road we go. If we're lucky we get to enjoy a little dance or song now and then--I've been singing my song to life since I was born. I've learned that love and the blues seem to be partners.

Trivia:

Best known country hits included "When the Morning Comes" and "Boney Fingers" (1974) and "Della and the Dealer" (1979). See more »
