Celebrating Our Culture
Uncle Remus, Small Towns, and Dad

David Clark is a storyteller for adults.  He hits with the home-spun wisdom reminiscent of Will Rogers and touches the soul through his songs a la Burl Ives.  A master of dialects, David Clark adds realism to his rural characters.

An Interview with Rick Bragg

For the Love of Country
An Interview with H. Greeley Thornhill
by Joyce Dixon

H. Greeley Thornhill has been involved in the business of music since his middle teens.  He became interested in the recording studio side of the business, and soon built his own studio, where he continued to write songs and produce records.  In 1979, he decided to leave the music business and moved to Crossville, Tennessee.  But the "love of country music" called to him again -- this time in the form of an historical novel.
