In the late 80s, I arrived in Nashville in a green VW Rabbit and $300 dollars in my pocket.   

By God's leading and favor, I met Gospel music industry mogul, Gary McSpadden, with whom I signed my first publishing deal.  

The song, In It After All, below, became the first of many songs I would write as a published writer.  It became a Billboard #1 hit, recorded by Larnelle Harris. 

The lyrics are special to me and speak of how I felt during that time in my life.
