A lot of what I've seen and experienced on these desolate plains of West Texas, I have translated into poetry. Somehow, writing helps me tolerate much of the tribulations of life and farming. Whether month-long sandstorms, three-year droughts, or weeds outgrowing our cotton crops, I try to maintain a balance between what is thought, felt, seen, and needed to be learned. I've transformed some of my poetry into songs and put together 10 of them on this album, entitled I Am The Tumbleweed. I hope it is the first of many. Jennie Holt, the love of my life, accompanies me on some of the songs with her harmonica and beautiful voice. A special thanks to Greg Kaiser for his dedication on the recording and mixing.
Hopefully, these words strike a chord within you. Here are a few to listen to. If you like those then you can purchase the whole album.
