Border to Border Coast to Coast
I've been a truck driver and business owner for a little over 20 years. I started writing and singing in 1995 when I wrote a song titled, 'Heart and Soul' as a tribute to my Mother which we lost to Alzheimer's. I have since then created three CD's ' Heart and Soul, ' ' Another Man's Treasure, ' & 'Border to Border, Coast to Coast.' The first two CD's were submitted by a field member of The Recording Academy for consideration for a 'GRAMMY' nomination in the category of : ' Best Country Album '. Attention : ( No nomination received ) All three CD's have mostly original songs that I have written or co-written about my wife and family, including the dawg, and some of the things that we have experienced. I was influenced by the Heart felt songs of Hank Williams Sr., Mearl Haggard, Jim Reeves & Marty Robins. The light hearted humor of Ray Stevens, Roger Miller, Jerry Read & Roy Clark. I was always blowed away by the vocals of Elvis and the style of Dean Martin. Several national magazines have written full page articles about the CD's , such as Roadstar, Road King , Truckers News, The Trail Rider, Longhorn Journal, Cowboy Magazine, The Drover, Coast to Coast Country magazine as well as several newspapers. The new XM Radio has been playing all of my songs. They made an original of mind titled ' Bar to Bar Stool to Stool ' one of the theme songs for channel 10 America. We have over 160 radio stations in 23 states that have played our songs. I have sent six of my original songs to Europe through a promotional company called Western Heart Promotions in 2002. During the period of Nov. 1st thru 15th 2002 I became the number ( 1 ) most played independent artist on the Worldwide Mainstream charts . For the period of Jan 16th thru 31th 2003 I made it to # 2 out of 3,169 artist. Wow !!! What an honor. So if you still enjoy the way country music use to be , I think you'll enjoy listening to any one of these CD's . During the Lone Star Music Assc. 2002 Award Show held at Billy Bob's in Ft. Worth , Tx. my original ' Let's Go Dancin'' won Traditional Country Song of the Year , my song ' That's Our Dawg ' won Comedy Song of the Year , I won ' Songwriter of the Year ' and 'International Artist ' WOW !!!!!! what a night. Thanks again for your time, David & Becky Cline GREAT NEWS ! ! ! ! ' Border to Border , Coast to Coast ' did become eligible for 3 GRAMMY nominations. Best Country Album , Best Country Song , and Best Country Male Vocal Performance . WOW , what an honor just to be on that list again . Attention : ( No Nomination was received for any of these categories ) The RoadStar Magazine will have an article about it in the Jan. 2004 issue . I also recieved the # 16 spot on the WorldWide Mainstream European Charts for most played artist for the year 2003. Thanks again for everyone's support .
