Rodger Young", one of the youngest men ever to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor; a tribute to John F. Kennedy, “A Mighty Good Man”, written for this project by Jim Murphy. Twelve selections in all, the CD revisits a time when the sacrifices of so many meant so much to the cause of Freedom. The CD was recorded in Remembrance of the 50th Anniversary of the end of WW II.
The project was recorded in Nashville, TN with the finest pickers who ever played classic country music. Their names would fill a ‘Who’s Who’ of the most fantastic pickers in Music City. Among their peers, they are known as The ‘A’ Team. They are a major reason why this CD was awarded the TMA “Album of the Year” Award in 1996. Buddy Emmons on steel guitar, is a member of the Steel Guitar Player’s Hall of Fame; Pete Wade on lead guitar; traveled with Ray Price; Hargus ''Pig'' Robbins, on keyboards, a multi-winner of the CMA Instrumentalist of the Year; Glen Duncan on fiddle, a Grammy Award winner; Gene Cristman, the drummer who toured with ''The Outlaws" (Johnny, Waylon and Willie); and Leo Jackson, session leader and rhythm guitar. Leo toured with Jim Reeves until 1964 when Jim was killed in a plane crash. These men are the very finest to work with, patient, creative, willing to go the extra mile because they truly enjoy the music. They are a major factor behind the success this CD has achieved.
The Monument in the cover photo cover serves as a tribute to all service men and women who gave their all so that all of us can enjoy the Freedom that they made secure.
