HEROES "When you win you're a hero and everybody wants to be your friend. But if you lose, you're just another loser. Remember it's only in the sight of man."
In 1984 I started out on a Vietnam Veterans March for school prayer. That march which was to go from Tennessee to Washington, D. C. has taken me a lot further than I ever planned. I discovered that the plight of the Vietnam Vets is universal and everybody needs the dignity of self that comes with the love of God. Heroes exist within themselves and their relationship to the Lord, regardless of their acknowledgement by their fellow man.
I believe as a country, America must get "Back to the Basics." First, the BIBLE as the foundation we must build upon. Second, the FLAG as a symbol that we are truly "One Nation Under God." Finally the PENNY with the inscription "In God We Trust" which bears witness to our forefathers faith in the providence and sovereignty of our Almighty God.
America! Millions have paid a price for our freedom. It's imperative that we preserve and defend our heritage.

Editor's note: this guy is great! Not his music but him. The man went to war, came back and had a dream to be a modern rocking country balladeer and then procured a label to do it! Indeedy do he did it. You can (well, I did anyway!) hear some Neil Diamond, Lionel Ritchie and various mod poppers in here as well a 90s country-pop crossover in both feel and style. Kinda like The Fixx meets Bruce Hornsby and one of the plethora of country-pop singers tossed in. And to think that I thought I'd found a Vince McMahon WWF album from the 80s when I first saw it. Isn't that tribute enough to R. K. Fraser?!?!
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
