Latest News:

Hi Everyone!!
 Nice to finally have the website up and running for almost 8 years now!! looks pretty good!!  I'll be making improvements and updates as I go along, but for now I hope you enjoy your visit.


I'm very proud and happy to announce the upcoming release this Summer 2019 of my 3rd full length CD/Album of ALL NEW Original songs featuring the songwriting skills of 
Don Haddock, Steve Owen, Emmitt Luttrell, Chet Blum, Johnny Penuel and the late great Garth Jacobs.. 
The Album is called "Tramp Iron Railroad" presents.."TRIFECTA"... featuring Don Haddock, Steve Owen and Bob McGilpin... 
All the Songs and Instrumentation on this project were produced, recorded and mastered by my good buddy Bob McGilpin of Nashville, Tennessee, and all of my vocals were recorded by my very good friend Vulcho Bonev of Vulcanic Studios in Costa Mesa, California. This Album was a 2 year labor of love that includes contributions from Artists , Musicians and Songwriters living in Alabama, California and Nashville etc... 
I think this is a great body of work that has something for everybody with 12 brand new songs that cross the genres of Country, Bluegrass, Southern Outlaw Rock, Pop, Jazz, Blues and Americana. I really hope you all get excited for the release and will all buy your own copy. I will also have copies to purchase directly from me. This Album is for you. 
"A great listening and story telling experience." 
Stay tuned for updates as the release date gets closer.. In the mean time, here is a premiere from the album called "GRAVITY"...Please enjoy this little Country Bluegrass love story ? Also give us a look see and visit and subscribe to our YouTube channel.…
