“I’m always most interested in a great country song. A great song trumps an “appropriate” pitch every time. Often missing for me these days in today’s contemporary country is heart and real characters I can relate to and root for. I look first for an inviting melody and then lyrical substance with content that matters and is delivered in a compelling, unique, entertaining way”.
