wrote "Love Will Get You Through Times Of No Money"
This song was for "Girls Next Door", the all-girl country group Doris sang with. It was their first single released to Country Music and went to #14 on the Bill Board charts! It was also requested and played on the Christian radio stations. The "Girls" reunited in the studio and recut their song.
PAUL OVERSTREET & DON MOEN: wrote "God Is Good" And He is good all the time!!
One of our favorite songs we have done live for a long time.
Another one by PAUL OVERSTREET & FRED CARPENTER & BILLY PRINCE
"Till The Answer Comes" (Gotta Keep Praying) and we do!
It was fun to sing with the "Girls" on this one.
FAY FOSTER- AL GOODHART- FLORENCE TARR: wrote "The Place Where I Worship"
We cut this with a "western swing" style and the lyrics sure fit the "cowboy life style".
PAUL WESTMORELAND: wrote "Detour" in 1945. In 1946 it was originally cut as a western swing ballad by Spade Cooley and spent 11 weeks on the country charts. In the 50's, Patti Page recorded "Detour" and stayed there for 16 weeks!
We cut the song with a cool retro sound with western swing and a touch of Hank Thompson.
This is an old ROY ROGERS & DALE EVANS song.
"May The Good Lord Take A Likin' To "Ya" Fun, fun song to sing
and the fiddles and do shine!
IRA F. STANPHILL & SINGSPRATION: "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow"
Another wonderful old song we just had to record. It is very special to Mike and I and it is my testimony song. The "Girls Next Door" did an awesome job!
