Several of todays country artist worked construction before pursuing their singing careers. I am still a pipe welder by trade, and well known as the \'AMAZING BLAZE\'. I\'m still welding for a living and writing songs when time permits.I don\'t know what Nashville\'s looking for, I\'m too old to be a country star. I guess I should have tried it years ago, before murder was committed, down on music row! My songs will make you laugh, make you cry, make you stop and wonder why. Don\'t try to stop your tears when they start, let your self relate to the words from my Hillbilly Heart!! Help me hang up my welding shield for good. Buy my music!!! Thanx and God Bless America!!
