My cousin Josh sent me a message with some lyrics a couple months ago when he was in the middle of a pretty serious battle with cancer. I told him I'd find the right group of guys to make his song happen. One of my studio clients, the singer of a bluegrass band called Oak Wilt, happened to have the right approach and attitude to do the song justice, then my friends Tyler, Michael and I got together with the singer and recorded the drums, bass, rhythm guitar and vocals as a group. I added some Hammond organ to give it that classic sound, and my friend Jason was good enough to come in and lay down some awesome guitar parts.

This song was written by Josh Eldridge. The lyrics were set to music by Tyler Stuckey and the Keystone Eagles. It was recorded, mixed and mastered by Matt Parmenter at Ice Cream Factory Studio. All payments for this track are on a donation basis. All proceeds after studio musicians are paid go directly to Josh Eldridge's cancer fighting fund.


-Lucky Man-

I've made it through many blizzards
and tornados and hurricanes
When it got hot on the kitchen
floor to ceiling, I've tackled flames
I've been to jail, had the prison blues
paid my debt to society
Been through hell and high water too
cat with nine lives ain't got shit on me

I'm one damn lucky man
Give thanks each day then I'm on my way
One damn lucky man
the good Lord's sent a lot of good my way

Found a woman with a heart of gold
not many left around these days
Family and friends around the globe
don't go to work, I go to play
A hard driving son of a bitch
on a mission to have some fun
Jump a burglar, jump a ditch
Smile on my face when the day is done

I'm one damn lucky man
Give thanks each day then I'm on my way
One damn lucky man
the good Lord's sent a lot of good my way
