Biography
I was born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains of East Tennessee. I first heard many of these good old Gospel songs in “The Old Country Church” where I grew up. Sunday afternoons with dinner on the ground is a wonderful memory of fun, friends, food and fellowship. This was just a way of life at our house too. Following the railroad tracks down Piney Flats Road in Watauga, TN is our family’s old two-story farmhouse where I grew up with a big front porch. Friends and family didn’t have to call before coming over. If they saw us out on the porch, they just stopped by, often bringing a basket of homegrown vegetables or some homemade jellies and jams. Before I knew it, Dad had an audience for me and would say, “Mike, get that banjo out.” I played many of these “Old Country Church” songs since most folks were familiar with them. To this day, I still love to have these gatherings and fellowship in the same way……the same songs!
I thank my parents so much for taking me to church and teaching me life values, respect for others, love, and Christian morals. I pray that these inspirational instrumental favorites will bless you and help you recall or perhaps be familiarized with “Old Country Churches.”

Although this is an instrumental project, these lyrics from the “The Old Country Church” song say it all:
“There’s a place dear to me where I’m longing to be with my friends at the Old Country Church.
There with mother we went and our Sundays were spent with our friends at the Old Country Church.
As a small country boy, how my heart beat with joy as I knelt at the Old Country Church And the Savior above, by His wonderful Love, saved my soul at The Old Country Church. How I wish that today all the people would pray, as they did at the Old Country Church If they'd only confess, Jesus surely would bless, as he did at the Old Country Church Precious years of memories, Oh what joy they bring to me How I long, once more to be, with my friends at “The Old Country Church.”
