20-Year Veterans Award
On behalf of all of the brothers/bandmates I've had the opportunity to write and perform with over the years, as well as those I currently perform with, and myself, a heartfelt thanks for the special veteran recognition award I will be receiving this year for my years of passion and dedication to the local music scene. An equal thanks to all of my peers and business associates who through the years embraced my/our efforts, and who shared the local music scene with best regards. For many years music has played a very significant--and at times vital--part in my life. I'm extremely grateful and consider myself blessed that the music I write and perform has not only afforded me this recognition, but has introduced me to some of the greatest friends and fans anyone could hope for, but more so, has given me the opportunity to help so many people in so many ways. An open-heart thanks to all of my loved ones for putting up with and sharing me, and the friends/fans old and new for nourishing my passion/dream. As always, to God for saving and seeing me through the years. And once again, to the GLVMA for doing their best to bring attention to the local music scene we all play an important and vital role in.
