This was at the beginning of our radio tour/media blitz for our first single, “What Do I Know”. At the time (Oct.1995), we would show up at the radio stations at 5:30 am to get ready for the drive time rush- set up our gear and play a bunch of songs-Heath and I on acoustics, Teddy on Dobro, Jeff with brushes on a snare, Greg with an acoustic bass, and Jr with his fiddle-all the while singing 5 part harmony. Good times!
Wanted to say thanks to our new friends at Old Dominion Fast Draw in Roanoke, VA for hosting the three of us for some Cowboy Fast Draw while on tour. If you ever get the chance to try this sport-you’re probably gonna get hooked! It’s a safe, fun family sport that combines all the aspects of gun safety, target shooting, and friendly competition.

Lotsa great memories!
If you visit Washington, DC-do yourself a flavor and grab a breakfast bagel sandwich at Washington Deli
I’m proceeding directly to a slice of pepperoni for my second breakfast.
At least it’s not chicken….
Funny how life brings you full circle. I was invited by Heath & Greg to sing with them during tonight’s performance for JINSA in Washington, DC. I started in Ricochet on Oct 23, 1993…so 20 yrs, 1 month and a few days later we’re performing together for what may be the last time. Brings back a lot of memories-it’s always an honor to sing our National Anthem “Ricochet” style.
Gotta run, coffee’s callin…..
Back in 2001, Ricochet went on the “Operation Seasons Greetings” USO tour with the Air Force Reserve Band. We visited bases is Spain, Portugal, Macedonia, Turkey, Italy and Germany. It was a blast!! Here are some photos from the trip, along with a song Greg Cook and I wrote called “Freedom Isn’t Free”.
