This special edition CD features my orginal song, Ronald Reagan Mr. President written in1998, plus a compilation of self penned tunes from my two other CD's , God Bless John Wayne and A Free Man's Mind . The CD includes my own arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner .
Like most songwriters, I have written on many topics, from love songs to novelty tunes. But I have also been inspired to write this musical tribute celebrating President Reagan, who so profoundly changed the world and my own life.
Ronald Reagan Mr. President was featured on The Fox News Channel's Fox and Friends morning TV show on President Reagan's 90th birthday in 2001. And I was honored to perform the song at the Memorial Candlelight Service at the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home in Dixon, Illinois on June 9,2004. I hope this song is as much of an inspiration for you as it was for me to write.
also on this CD
Patriot Heart ( and a Free Man's Mind ) : This song, written in 2000, is my anthem to the history of this great nation! It is dedicated to the Americans who have left us a legacy of spirituality and freedom . They are the source of my Patriot Heart.
God Bless John Wayne : My tribute to The Duke, "old" Hollywood's number one patriot actor. Like his pal and fellow actor,The Gipper, there will never be another like John Wayne.
The Star Spangled Banner : There are many orchestrated renditions of The National Anthem , but I wanted my interpretation to be recorded in an uncomplicated guitar/vocal arrangement as it might be performed by a contemporary troubador.
They Fought for Old Glory : My tribute to "The Greatest Generation " of WW II , and all of America's men and women of the Armed Forces, past and present,
The song was inspired by President Reagan's memorable speech on June 6, 1994 at Point Du Hoc, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Normandy Invasion.
