Several years ago, I co-wrote a worship song entitled “Be Kind” with my friend Brian Morykon (Brian performed on, produced, and mixed my 2004 record “Fury & Spin”). In 2012, Brian recorded “Be Kind” on his debut album The Smallest Seed. The record was produced by Luke Skaggs and features the talents of his sister Molly on keys and vocals. These are the multi-talented children of Grand Ole Opry star Ricky Skaggs who recently picked up “Be Kind” for one of his own projects which is currently in production and features his wife Sharon White of The Whites. That album is due out sometime in September. Mr. Skaggs is frequently found performing in places such as The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN where I hear he will be appearing just days from now with his wife Sharon for the summer annual Springer Mountain Farms Bluegrass Nights. It’s hard to say how excited I am at the prospect of stars such as Ricky and Sharon filling the air of one of Americas most important concert halls with the lyrics and chords Brian and I put together over a few short emails and Soundcloud comments. It’s just Bizarre. I’m so proud of Brian and grateful for the vision he had to write such a simple yet poignant song that I really think everyone needs to hear, over and over again. To God be the glory forever and ever for all our little triumphs!
