My brother is
THE Jim Mundy
writer and # 1 Billboard song by Moe Bandy with many hits
himself. I also have a brother Bill White that was with
the group Greyghost on Mercury Records. He is a great
singer and writer.
He is on
the road a lot these days. Bill was 4 years old when he
started singing. Our family had a TV show. My mother played
upright bass, I played piano, my little sister sang and played
the cowbell, Jimmy was M.C. We also had a radio show at
KWHN in Fort Smith, Arkansas. We spent so much time
answering fan mail, which we all loved to get and read. You
could say I am from a 'musical family'.
I got to thank George
Beverly Shea, RIP, for recording "Time out for Jesus" and
singing it on the Canadian Crusade with Billy Graham. I
called him and thanked him. Jack D. Johnson gave me his
phone number. He was so nice and told me he loves the
song. It is now in some hymnal books. I was blessed with
some of the greats that recorded my songs, Gene Watson,
Johnny Duncan, Charley Pride, Crystal Gayle, Ferlin Huskey,
and Hank Thompson, who recorded 2 of my songs.
Spinners for the Coca Cola
commercial and the song that they recorded
that I wrote, "Paint the World a Rainbow" (and buy the
world a Coke).
The great Diana Trask,
Bill White, K.W. Watson for
"He Will, Jesus Will".
Roy Clark and Roni
Stoneman of Hee Haw fame for the song "Roy" that I wrote
with Eddie Rager, who wrote "Minstrel Man" for Willie
Nelson and played bass on the road with Willie. His voice
was so different and true. He was a great guy and we lost
him in his 40's. He told me some great stories about some
of the trips when he was with Willie. I always was Willie
Nelson's and Gene Watson's number one fan, as well as
Patsy Cline. I was so honored to finally meet Willie
Nelson since I had written an award winning song about
him. I must thank Kelly Bach that wrote for my publishing
company who wrote an award winning song "My Empty Arms".
I also worked with Marty Robbins, Ricky Nelson, Red Sovine,
and John Denver. I sang on KROD TV in El Paso,
Texas with Buck Wayne, DJ Hall of Fame. The engineers, Tom
Pick, Travis Turk, Gene Rice, Gene Lawson, and some other
I want to say
thanks to my friend and first neighbor, Buzz Cason, my
back up singer, Janie Fricke, the great Linda Davis,
who recorded one of my favorite songs I co-wrote with
Steve Karol, Joe Allison of "He'll Have to Go" fame,
Liz Anderson, great singer and best friend, and her
husband Casey. They wrote many hits for Merle Haggard,
and their daughter, Lynn Anderson, Fran Kowalski, Dugg
Collins, Chris Taylor, Curtis King, Richard Colanzi,
Johnny Koval , Hargus (Pig) Robbins for recording
"Unbreakable Hearts" that is also the album title on
Elektra Records. He has won so many awards.
Danny Davis and the
Nashville Brass, Grammy award winners and 6 CMA awards.
Josh Graves, Grady Martin, Weldon Myrick, Buddy Emmons,
Stu Basore, John Propst, Walt Cunnigham, Phil Baugh, Dave
Kirby, Loyd Green, Jimmy Colvard, Buddy Spicher, Johnny
Gimble, Kenny Malone, Hayward Bishop, Chuck Sanders, Henry
Strzeleck, Terry Waddell, Ken Deifik (aka AQ), Norman Ray,
Rex Peer, Ray Carroll, Bill Pippin, The Cate Sisters, Pete
Wade, Chip Young, Harold Bradley, Mark Morton, Greg
Morton, and Curly Chalker was the steel player on my very
first session in Nashville, when I was just a pup. I
started writing when I was about 8 years old and playing
piano. The song I wrote when I was 15 years old, "Poor
Wilted Rose", won an award for being in the Billboard
charts for 11 weeks. I have won several other awards for
my songs that were in the Billboard charts for more than
11 weeks. The
top 40 Billboard hit was "My Empty Arms".
I can relate to Willie Nelson's song "On the Road Again".
I have known so many great folks, and pickers
and grinners, that have been in my life. I am still writing and
singing, performing every chance I get. I want to thank each and
everyone that has passed through my life, and helped me with my
journey. I appreciate everyone. Thanks
