Here are samples of a few recent comments from fans:

The first song on your new album, Acoustic Souvenir, is brilliant. I love the guitar so much! I dig the lyric "This car feels like a prison." I absolutely love the vocals. Imagery, harmony, the total star-quality package. PP

Wow - that song still gets me! If I had written something that perfect in my life, I would die happy. Thanks, RR

Really great show last night, every single song was strong. And your guitar playing; "Like Buttah'!" MH

You've still got it, never lost it, and brought it back home where it belongs. Big, big smile on my face. Thank you! SB

Danny - what an awesome concert. Your new material is really superb and of course your portfolio of existing material speaks for itself. DRH

I closed my eyes for a moment and I was sitting ringside at the bar where I first heard you play with a cold bottle of Dos Equis, and thinking life would never change. VS

The man can write a love song...wow. LD

Band was tight - mix was great. How do I get the CD? Keep me on your mailing list and we will come out next time you play out west. HT

You have such talent and I am a fan. I can't wait to get back there and see you live again. Let me know when you release your next CD. DD

ALL SHE EVER WANTED

Written By: DANNY EVERITT/MIKE HART

ALL SHE EVER WANTED

YOU FINALLY FOUND HER THEN YOU RAN AWAY
PICTURE LIFE WITHOUT HER AND YOU KNOW YOU’VE GOT TO STAY
SHE HUNG IN AS LONG AS SHE COULD TO SEE WHAT YOU WOULD DO
‘CAUSE ALL SHE EVER WANTED WAS YOU

WHILE YOU WEREN’T LOOKING THE FUTURE SLIPPED THROUGH YOUR HANDS
I MIGHT BE MISTAKEN BUT THAT WASN’T WHAT SHE PLANNED
SHE’S GONE AND MADE UP HER MIND LET ME BREAK THE NEWS
ALL SHE EVER WANTED WAS YOU

WE’VE BEEN FRIENDS A LONG TIME
YOU SEEM A LITTLE CONFUSED
REAL LOVE IS HARD TO FIND
BUT THAT’S WHAT YOU COULD LOSE

ALL SHE EVER WANTED
ALL SHE EVER WANTED WAS YOU

YOU TRY HARD TO FORGET HER THEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START
FACE IT SOONER OR LATER THESE MATTERS OF THE HEART
I BELIEVE IT’S NEVER TOO LATE IF YOUR LOVE IS TRUE
BOT YOU’D BETTER NOT WAIT IT WAS HER DREAM TOO
AND NOW YOU KNOW
ALL SHE EVER WANTED
ALL SHE EVER WANTED WAS YOU

THE SOUND OF YOUR NAME

Written By: DANNY EVERITT/R.H. EVERITT

THE SOUND OF YOUR NAME

THERE’S A HOLE IN THE MOON
A HOLE IN THE HEART OF THE NIGHT
THIS PARTICULAR WOUND
IS DEEP AND WELL OUT OF SIGHT

THERE’S A BUMP ON A LOG
A BUMP ON THE SIDE OF MY HEAD
I’M LOST IN A FOG
FROM A LETTER I READ

IF THERE’S A BONE OF CONTENTION
AND WE’RE FEELING THE STRAIN
PLEASE FORGIVE THAT I MENTION
THE SWEET SOUND OF YOUR NAME
OH THE SOUND OF YOUR NAME

YOU’VE MADE YOUR DECISION
AND I’VE MADE UP MY MIND
BUT IT’S SO HARD TO INVISION
WHEN WE’RE BOTH RUNNING BLIND

YOU’RE THE WOMAN I LOVE
AND I WANT YOU TO STAY
IF WE DON’T TALK ENOUGH
IT AIN’T BECAUSE WE’VE GOT NOTHING TO SAY

THERE’S A HOLE IN THE MOON
A HOLE IN THE HEART OF THE NIGHT
THIS PARTICULAR WOUND
IS DEEP AND WELL OUT OF SIGHT

THE SOUND OF YOUR NAME
IS LIKE AN ANGEL’S REFRAIN
THE SOUND OF YOUR NAME
I WANT TO HEAR IT AGAIN

MAYBE FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

Written By: Danny Everitt

YOU MIGHT BE THINKING YOU WOKE UP IN A BED OF ROSES
WITH THE PROMISE OF SUNSHINE IN YOUR EYES
BABY I’M HOPING THAT YOU’LL NOTICE
THESE WERE THE BEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES

TOMORROW MORNING WE’LL BOTH BE ANOTHER DAY OLDER
WE COULD GET AWAY TAKE A LITTLE TIME FOR OURSELVES
DARLING WHY BOTHER LOOKING BACK OVER YOUR SHOULDER
WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ONLY TIME WILL TELL

IN THE MORNING YOU’LL FINALLY CALL MY NAME
MAYBE IN THE MORNING WHETHER BLUE SKIES OR RAIN
OVERNIGHT EVERYTHING CAN CHANGE
SO HOLD ON HOLD ON AND MAYBE FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

SOMEDAY YOU MIGHT BE LYING TO A STRANGER
YOU MIGHT BE TRYING TO FORGET ABOUT THE THINGS WE SAID
THAT’LL BE THE DAY TO REALIZE THE DANGER
THAT MAYBE I’M TOO FAR AWAY

WHEN THE SUN COMES PEEPING THROUGH
AND OUR CRAZY CLOUDY HEADS CLEAR
IF I’M NOT THIS CLOSE TO YOU
YOU’RE GOING TO WANT ME YOU’RE GOING TO NEED ME THERE
