Notes about 'McCord': One of my favorite things to do is to sit on the porch at night and listen to the mockingbirds. There are usually two, a few trees apart, having a conversation with one another. It is one of the most beautiful things in the world. Just the varied sounds of these two lonely birds at night - with nothing else going on. One night while listening, the idea for a song popped into place. My thoughts immediately turned to a friend that we all lost a few years ago. A young gay man named Reginald McCord. He was a bright spirit whose warmth burned out way too soon. I dedicated this song to him. -Bill To purchase in I-tunes, visit: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/mccord-single/id357324493

Notes about 'Knocking on Heaven's Door': I was testing out a new microphone and trying to get better at recording on my own at home when I tracked this Bob Dylan cover. I kept the second take and sent it on to I-tunes. A while later, I was lucky enough to have my version added to a popular playlist that is endorsed by Spotify. Now, the song has been heard by over 3 million listeners in 63 different countries! So cool! - Bill

Notes about 'The Last Drag': 'The Last Drag' is a song written by one of my all time favorite groups called 'The Samples'. The original version features sounds of dogs barking off in the distance among other sounds. It's such a great song to chill out with. I hope Sean thinks that I did the song justice. Please check them out! - Bill

Notes about 'Sleepyhead': I was doing a soundcheck while recording at home and just began playing this simple chord progression. It sounded strong enough to me to leave it as an instrumental. It's a simple piece that would be a perfect instrumental for a sound track... - Bill

Notes about 'Whiskey': I forget the name of the movie, but when I was a kid, I saw a cowboy movie where the bad guy carried a Bible . It contained a hollow spot inside that was carved out - where he kept his gun. I sort of lifted that idea and wrote about someone toting whiskey inside their Bible instead. I know that there have been times in my life that I was so low, I thought maybe God himself couldn't even hear me.  This is one of those songs that I think we have all lived through at one point in our lives....or will.  No matter how much you try to forget something, someone, or both - sometimes your sadness gets the best of you.  I tried several different verses until everything just kind of fell into place at the last minute right before tracking the vocals. Our friend Matt Hooper adds great violin parts to this tune. We're very proud of it!  - Bill

Notes about 'If the Creek Don't Rise': I was impressed with Dylan Leblanc's original song and decided to cover it. He is an up and coming singer songwriter whose dad was a musician who worked at Muscle Shoals. The mirror in the photo belonged to a girl who I loved dearly. We were in the process of moving in with one another and discussing long term plans such as marriage. It's a long story, but I discovered she was cheating on me. This mirror was in her apartment, on her bedroom wall, and it knew the truth even when I didn't. She had left it behind with me when she left, and I decided to include it in the photo shoot for the single album cover. I laid it down in the snow for a few pictures then promptly donated it to a local thrift store. It may not make sense to you, but I had to get it out of my house. The picture turned out interesting, the recording session went smoothly, and thankfully, I don't hear from her anymore. -Bill
