I Can’t Believe, It’s Almost Christmas Of 2015!

Oh my, I don’t know where the time has gone. It seems like summer was here and gone in a flash! I can’t remember opening our pool! Sorry for not posting more on my blog, but it seems that I’m more busy now than I have ever been! I do “Songwriter’s Rounds” at the Maxwell House Hotel once a month, plus all the other songwriter’s rounds that I do in between! I work a few show dates. But one of the best things in my life right now is the “Next Generation”! That’s the son’s and daughter’s of country music legends! We did the “Second Generation” Family Reunion Show a couple of years ago, and I’m privileged to be a part of that group. We are doing “Country With A Cause” at the Nashville Palace on December 10, 2015. That’s to provide family’s that are underprivileged, with a Christmas this year! There will be myself, Melissa Luman, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Robyn Young and Ron Williams. That’s the “Brat Pack”! Then there’s Leona Williams, Buddy Jewel, Bobby G. Rice, and Billy Yates. Lulu Roman will be hosting the event. I’m sure there’s going to be lots more people added to the roster. I worked the Wilson County Fair for the “Umpteenth Time” (don’t know how many years I’ve worked it, maybe 10 or 11). Had as my special guests, my brother Danny Wheeler! He tore the house up! Mr. Joe Rucker was my guest, and nobody sings “Farewell Party” like Joe! He was fabulous! And then for my very special guests, Russ and Becky Jeffers! Wow! They put on a show like no one has ever! They were absolutely wonderful! Thank you Russ and Becky! I’m going to go down in history for my songwriting, not for being an artist, for my cookbooks, or as a book writer. I’m going to be known as a songwriter if it kills me! And it probably will! Ha! But I’m never too old to walk up on that stage and receive “Writer of the Year” or “Song of the Year”. I don’t have any aspirations of being a star, those days are gone! But I have one goal, and that is to write a hit song. I’m never too old for that!
