Songwriting has always been an important part of my career. I figured the best way to sustain a career was as a songwriter. This song was one of the first where I felt I was beginning to understand the craft. I introduced it in Nashville in 1975.
It has been my good fortune to have made music with some special people. Ted Brancato is one of them. In many ways he and his family like a second family to me. My friend, Gary Drager, and I wrote the song "Old Man" nearly 50 years ago.
