Now there is a song on this CD that has a little humor about a bad situation of folks being separated . It’s titled : “ Cheeper To Keep’er “ . You can imagine what the song is all about . Now there is a story behind the other original song titled “ Honey’s Little Hummer “ . My wife & I went looking for her a new Volkswagon Bettle to drive. While Shopping around we saw something really different and was a strikingly beautiful royal blue H3 Hummer dress out to the max. She drove it and fell in love with it . I have to admit , that was fine with me . Well , I was so taken by it’s beauty I just had to write a song about it . On this CD you’ll see the title “ Honey’s Little Hummer “. The song is all about the H3 Hummer and my little Hummer Honey . There is a photo of the Hummer , our dawg Scotty and of course my little wife Becky on the back of the CD. The last song is my rendition of a live Elvis recording in 1968 titled : “ If I Can Dream “. It’s all about a dream we all wish would come true someday .
Becky & I sincerely hope you will enjoy this CD for a long time to come .

Written by Becky Cline
David was born December 21, 1948. He was the youngest son of four boys and one younger sister. His father was a salvage dealer and his mother a homemaker. David never had the opportunity to play football, baseball or any other extra curricular activities, but he knew first hand what a hard day''s work was. He loved his parents, brothers and sister very much, no matter how hard life seemed to be.
David married Becky on July 17, 1977, and they lived in a small house in Mesquite, Texas before moving to Combine, Texas in August of 1989. With the help of Becky''s hard work towards their success, before her retirement on May 10, 2000, they provided a comfortable life for themselves and their three children. Becky has two daughters, Susan and Tami, and David has a son, Bryan. They also have 10 grandchildren, 5 boys and 5 girls.
David worked as an insurance salesman, auto parts counterman and as an electrician before going back to his roots of dealing in salvage in 1973. In 1983 David was one of the three founders of A/C Equipment Unlimited, Inc. with headquarters in Dallas, Texas. He has been president and co-owner since the company''s inception. David and Becky, with their boxer, Sir Spencer Gallahad, traveled in the company''s 18 wheeler buying and delivering used and rebuildable commercial and industrial air conditioning equipment.
In 1995 David was in Phoenix, Arizona on business when his mother passed away from complications from Alzheimer''s. He caught a plane and flew home to be with his family for the burial services. He flew back to finish up his trip and to get his truck. During his return trip he wrote some memories of his mother in a poem. When he got back to Dallas, he thought it might make a pretty song. He asked his brother-in-law, Mike Hicks, to put music to the lyrics. David''s first song, "Heart and Soul", was created. He went to Patrick McGuire''s studio in Arlington, Texas and asked Patrick to find the best musicians available to record his song, as a tribute to his mother. He sent it to some of the local radio stations and a few of them played it on the air. He wrote another song for his wife as a gift for their 20th wedding anniversary called "Another Precious Year". David lost a close cousin in May 1998, Ann McFadden, who was only 44 years of age. Ann''s mother asked him to write a song about her daughter and "Unforgettable Angel of Gold" was created.
Over the next few years, David wrote more songs and couldn''t get anyone interested enough in singing or recording them. After he wrote and recorded "I Think I''m a Cowboy Now", "Honky Tonkin" and "That Woman is My Wife", he had nine pretty good songs. Patrick McGuire, musicians, friends and family members suggested that he put his songs on his own CD. David and Becky made the decision to go for it, even though they knew very little about the music business.
With Patrick McGuire as the producer and engineer, they felt at least it could turn out to be something to pass on to the family. David and Becky decided to take it one step further and create a 2 song music video of "I Think I''m a Cowboy Now" and "Honky Tonkin’ ". They sent the 2 songs to some companies of the equine industry letting them know they would like to have some sponsors for the video. After a short while, 25 different companies donated products. With David''s ideas and with the help of Phil and Jan York at Big Y Productions in Irving, Texas and all the crew at Magic Video in Dallas, they created a 2 song music video. Now, David is an independent artist, starting late in life, but it has turned out to be the most self-gratifying project he has ever done. He has created his own Record Label and Publishing Co., while doing all the promoting, advertising and PR work as time has allowed and still run a corporation.
As of January 2005, David has retired from his business. He and his wife, Becky, and their dog Scotty are enjoying traveling and promoting David’s music full time all over the world. David has written some new songs, and now has six Country CDs and one Gospel CD available. With five contentions for a Grammy nomination on his CD titled “Texas Hold’em”, he now has a total of thirteen contentions for Grammy nominations thanks to the help of Mr. Phil York of York Town Digital in Irving Texas. He knows they’re only contentions but he’s so proud to be on the first round list with super star artists such as Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and others. He also has numerous song writing and entertainment awards to add to his credits.
David’s latest CD is titled “My Daddy’s Music”. It has three originals and his rendition of six Classic Country hits finishing the CD off with a heart felt version of the song “If I Can Dream”. The title cut “My Daddy’s Music” was written by David and his friend, Farrel Knight. The other two originals, “Cheeper to Keep’er” and “Honey’s Little Hummer” was written by David.
David’s music is being played on XM Radio, Internet Radio as well as AM & FM radio stations all over the United States and Europe. In January of 2004 a song he wrote titled “Good Ole Country Music & Western Swing” hit number one on the European Country Music Charts. He has topped the Worldwide Mainstream Indie and Major Charts as most independent played artist in November of 2002. Over the years there have been numerous articles written about David and his music in local papers and national trade magazines. Magazines like Truckers News, Road Star, Road King and The Trail Rider. Most recently there has been a full two-page featured article written about David in the May/June issue of the National RV Companion Magazine.
David doesn’t play an instrument, but he performs with his original tracks at private & company parties, fund raisers, festivals, truck shows, trail rides, cattle drives and trade day markets. He loves to sing with the bands of local opry’s.
His songwriting and performing adventures have been the most self - gratifying projects he has ever done. He’s thrilled to be able to enjoy what little success it is , but he feels blessed to have recorded a Hank Williams Classic song titled “Move It On Over” and a George Strait song “Ace In The Hole” with his son , Bryan...I have a feeling there will be many more.
David says, “Nothing ventured nothing gained, you can’t hit if you don’t swing”.
