I grew up in a tiny West-Texas town named Andrews. It sprang up around the oil fields in the 20s and 30s.

As I get close to my 6-month mark here at Centricity/Eaglemont, I decided to dedicate this blog to 6 of the top “lessons” I’ve learned so far. In no particular order… 1. Say “Thank You”: Seems simple enough, but don’t ever underestimate the power of saying these words. To a promoter who says, “Can’t do [...]Continue Reading »
So as a publisher I get songs from out writers everyday on various forms of completion- we then decide on which ones we really need to focus on and spend some time making sure they sound great for whatever specific purpose we move towards.

Matt Papa as well as Billy and Cindy Foote will be a part of the program on Tuesday and our Management team (me included!) will be hosting a booth in their exhibit hall [...]Continue Reading »
I am so happy. So darned happy. Happiness is not joy, but sometimes choosing joy will lead to a strange realization: hey, I’m happy. It’s a splendid thing. A friend of mine whose family is going through a very difficult time right now told me a story about how they had been praying God would [...]Continue Reading »
I was having lunch with a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago. When I walked in with my iPhone headphones in, listening to the latest podcast of This American Life. After giving him the obligatory hello hug he looked at me and said “ah, tell me you’re not ‘that guy.’”.
