Things are getting exciting!

Things are getting exciting!

Lord willing, On April 8th I’ll be playing and singing at ” The Church of Ascension ” in Johnstown, Ohio.

Then on April 12th, I will be heading back to Georgia to record, write, and play some gigs with Curtis Jones and his wife Kim.
I will also be going to Seneca SC,to collaborate with Tyler Williams on some new songs. Then hopefully do some recording with him, and play a few gigs.

On May 24th ” The Old Horseshoe Tavern ” in Johnstown, Ohio. With Curtis Jones and his wife Kim. Then on to Erie Pennsylvania for a house concert with Curtis and Kim. Following that back down to Georgia.

On Friday, July 26th 5:30pm I will be kicking off events with a performance at ” The Stidham Old Time Music Gathering ” located at 1213 Milo Rd, Tomahawk, KY.

It is a wonderful feeling knowing the Lord has blessed me to be able to travel around this great place called ” The United States of America ” playing and singing as I go.

Without the Lord none of this would’ve been possible. Just like the Apostle Paul said, ” I can do all things, through Christ who strengthen me. ” It us nothing about my own personal abilities, it’s all about the Lord and what He can do.

The Road is Calling Again

The Road is Calling Again

The road is calling again. Pulling out in the morning.

After working with Curtis Jones and his wife Kim. Recording my own original songs, co -writing, playing and singing with them and my vocals on two tracks on Curtis’s all electric album. I’ve been asked to come back and work with them in the music world on a daily basis.

Will be living for the time being at “Wolf Tracks and Bunny Recording Studio” Writing, recording, or performing every day.

Looking forward to this once in a lifetime opportunity. Doing what I love, and enjoy every day.

We will be coming back to Ohio for the scheduled show on May 24th 7 – 10pm at ” The Old Horseshoe Tavern ” Johnstown Ohio
Hope to see many of you there.

My Loyal Companion

This ole guitar has been my loyal companion through many lonely nights. I don’t know what I’d do without her.

When I bought her new in 2005, she was the first guitar I ever bought. I had just learned three chords. People thought I had lost my mind to pay $2,500 for her When I couldn’t even play.

But the Lord knew how much comfort I would be needing, and how much comfort it would bring to others as I sing to them. When I’m lonely and feeling down. I hold her in my arms, strumming her. Then I sing myself happy!

Been On A Mountain

I was singing this old song when I got up this morning. So I thought I’d share it with others. We used to sing it in Church all the time.

The Masters Voice

I wrote this while I was in Georgia recording with Curtis Jones.

We were talking about how that you can see, and hear God speaking in all of creation. I then got my Bible out and read Psalms 19 to everyone. That’s when the inspiration hit for this song.

We hope to record it on my next trip back.

Psalm 19 King James Version (KJV)

19 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

A Valuable Lesson I learned From Tyler Williams

Sharing a valuable lesson I learned from my good friend Tyler Williams.

Tyler and I have traveled thousands of miles together, playing and singing as we go. As most of you know, Tyler is blind. Well as we travel up and down the road, he always has to have the radio on. His hand never leaves the dial. Constantly changing channels. Rarely if ever listening to an entire song, before changing channels.

That was really irritating to me, as I never turn a radio on as I drive alone. One time it was bothering me to the point I turned the radio off. Tyler turned it back on. Then I told him that it was my car, and I didn’t want to hear the radio at all.

Two weeks ago I picked up Tyler in SC, and brought him to record here in Georgia. It was then He told me this ” Chuck, I know you don’t like the radio and it irritates you. But I can’t look out the window like you. So by me listening to the radio, I can tell geographically where I am. That’s how I ” look ” out the window. ”

That brought me to tears! It broke my heart, and I had to apologize to Tyler. I didn’t understand the reason Tyler was constantly changing channels. I love that young man, and wouldn’t ever want to hurt him in any way.

He taught me a valuable lesson. We don’t always know why someone does what they do. Sometimes there’s a good reason!
So don’t be to quick to judge, condemn, or get upset with someone. Especially when we don’t know everything there is to know.

Overcome Your Fear Of Failure

The only way to do anything, is overcome your fear of failure. Last week while in the studio with Curtis Jones, Kim Jones, and Tyler Williams. Tyler was playing keyboard, Curtis got on the upright bass. Curtis pointed to the drums and told me to play them. I then told him I couldn’t, cause I’ve never played them before.

As they continued playing I thought ” What have I got to lose. ” so I sat down and started playing the drums. Surprisingly I didn’t do to bad. Good enough Tyler thought it was Kim playing, not me.

Had I let the fear of failure stop me, I’d have missed out on a good time.

Song Tweaking In The Studio Tonight

There’s a lot of song tweaking going on in the studio tonight!

Curtis Jones is mixing ” Trane To Eternity ”

A tribute song to the late great Jazz musician, John Coltrane.

Kim Jones writing one called ” White Face ”

About the horrendous treatment of patients with mental illness, years ago in the asylums.

I was adding a verse to ” You’ll Be Next In Line ”

A song drawing attention to our own individual mortality.
