Eleven of the thirteen songs on this album were written by
Billy Chernoff who makes his home in British Columbia, Canada. The very
first song is a knock-out.  It must be my lucky day to be doing a
festival in LeMars, Iowa, where Billy Chernoff is going to be, right
alongside the guy who wrote “Skip A Rope” for Henson Cargill.  That
would be Glenn Tubb (Ernest’s nephew), who also wrote “”I Am That Kind
Of Man” on this album.  Both of these songs are similar in the ‘message’
they convey, but more importantly the composers both impart their very
‘soul’ on both these songs.  Billy is an especially gifted writer, he
picks melody lines that enforce and propagate the message he shares with
his listeners. He’s a ‘champion’ for Jesus, and makes no bones about
it. “And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die,”  is
clearly printed on his CD folder.  This CD is another of those well done
studio productions where both music makers and editors culminate their
talents to make it all come out right.  Nashville musicians are
outstanding, Wanda Vick on fiddle, mandolin, and Dobro; Dave Moody on
acoustic and electric guitar; Josh Moody on drums; Ron de la Vega on
bass; John Rees on piano; and Jennifer O’Brien on background vocals. 
Billy works between his Canadian and Nashville locations with some of
the overdubbing done in Canada.  It’s amazing how that all works, but
the end result is a super-star piece of fine music, right in line with
the original traditional country music style.  Billy Chernoff might not
be a young man, but he sure sounds like one, his heart full of love for
Jesus, and his pen full of ink ready to write what he feels.  He also
likes to use a lot of modulation in his songs, reminiscent of the 70’s,
but still a very strong and powerful tool that a lot of songwriters have
forgotten how to use.  Not so with Billy Chernoff.  It keeps him young,
and it keeps his listeners young too. Off it goes to the Rural Roots
Music Commission.
