Songs recorded by Hank Thompson, Charley Pride, Crystal Gayle, The Spinners, Gene Watson, Linda Davis, Bill White, Diana Trask, Ferlin Huskey, Johnny Duncan. So happy to be an award winning singer/songwriter.
My brother is
THE Jim Mundy award singer/ 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.  The 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 great engineers.
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 again!!!
