Message:  Suzie,
I've been waiting a long time to send this message to you. In the early 80's when I first went to Nashville and stayed with Mickey and got wrapped around his world. I started a personal journey filled with ups and downs drug addiction and a diagnoses and severe struggle with Manic Deppresion, mainly Mania and all the visions, Angels and Demons that come along with the gift God gave me. Mickey always believed that I had the heart for his music and I believe that I do. I've done my first CD project called "Easy Does It" that chronicles my journey through recovery. I would love to send it to you, I think you will be proud. I'm doing well, I'm married to my beautiful wife April,19 years and have two great kids, Aubrey Lynn who's 17 and plays 9 instruments and Julian Clay who sings and plays on the high school Golf team and loves the ladies and all his friends. I wanted to let you know that from here on out I intend to do one or two of Mickey's songs on the rest of my projects. I will be doing a Mickey Newbury "In a New Age" tribute show very soon and will be doing a 3 camera shoot to hopefully do a PBS special. I hope you and Mamie will be my special guest. I'll fly you in and put you up if that's O.K. I'm probably looking at next summer. I hope you will consider coming. Thank You so much for being such an insiration to such a great and inspiring friend
