Coming soon "Howl at the Moon" by Bob Bates
Several years ago I performed on the Grand Ole Opry with Charlie Louvin from the Louvin Brothers. I came to love the Louvin sound and when I wrote Dear Mr. Varney I decided to sort of recreate that old fashion sound that Charlie and Ira produced that was so simple and yet so effective.
The magic you don’t see
Is what you need to believe
If you smile at me
What you give we receive

The American front porch is open and sociable. In essence, it is an outdoor living room for family and friends to pass the time- a place where advice was garnered, jokes were told, songs were sung, and stories were spun. The front porch represented the cultural ideals of family and community.
The power of a story is magnified when it is shared.
