Thank God I’m A Country Boy
This was my first and only major label release with AGR/UNIVERSAL. It was released on February 29th, 2005. It was released to introduce me to John Denver’s fans worldwide with the hopes that I would be accepted and embraced by them. There are 6 John Denver cover songs and 6 of my own originals.
The title song of the CD was the first single of the project. It was recorded as a duet with Dolly Parton and went to #1 on the European CMA charts. Dolly and I later won a European CMA award for Best Vocal Duo of the Year with that song!
The next two singles, What Our Love Is Not About, and Oh Railroad went to #2 and #4 respectively. The awards season for 2006 netted me SIX ECMA nominations!
