Thank you, Jimmy, for those ever so kind words of support and friendship and for your raison d’être for your continued membership that you posted on my page – that means a lot.

Had my heart not been thinking of the members of IACMusic at the time and how I felt the site made such a valuable contribution to them as artists, I would not have made a personal as well as the very large financial investment that I made in the site. I sincerely felt that the site was one of if not the best site on the planet for songwriters, musicians, artists and bands.

I continue to feel so, albeit sadly acknowledging at the same time that in several respects the site has fared poorly over the last seven or eight years. I and several other long time members continue to work toward re-establishing a path for the site to reach the potential that we truly believe is within its grasp, recognizing at the same time that nothing worthwhile in achieving ever comes easily.

I share your feeling of our long friendship being a personal treasure and value it so, and I continue to hang onto the dream of a ‘fireside song swap under the stars’ coming to pass one day – perhaps somewhere on the banks of ‘where the mighty rivers meet.’

As for my writing, I write from my heart, Jimmy, and am not ashamed to wear it on my sleeve and on the pages and in the chapters of my life.

Hey Songwriter, Thank you for pointing out that over flow of comments. I don't know what that was. Hope all is better than well and the music keeps you warm this winter. Peace Brother.

Brother Jimmy, over the years, at least going on two decades, you have been a constant support and friend not only to me but for so many musicians and songwriters at this venue. You are an amazing and steadfast Friend.. You seem to just know that true human nature that surrounds us and always remain you, respectful and true. Never change for you are a strength that holds your many friends together.
Peace and Harmony Songwriter, Always

Thanks, Jimmy, for the congrats on my page re the two Golden Kayak wins. I didn’t give any of the nominations that I had much if any chance of winning. I don’t know where the votes came from or even how many there were.

With your song, “Prisoner Of My Heart” right up there near the top of the Country and All Genres charts I thought it would have been a shoo-in for the Country Golden Kayak. What do I know!!

Congratulations, Jimmy. on "Where The Mighty Rivers Meet" topping the All Genres and Country Charts.

The song is the first song of yours that I heard when I first met you way back in My Space days years ago, and I've loved it ever since.

Thank you, Jimmy, for stopping by my page, and about the Golden Kayak nominations - no one was more surprised than I. In any event, it is an honour to be nominated by one's peers, and to have the opportunity to share the event with fellow nominees.

Congratulations on the success of your songs on the IMP Play Charts, Jimmy. I love to see that happening for you.

I still have hope that not too far down the road before I hang up my spurs that the trail leads to that fireside where you and I and Roy and Les turn our guitars and voices into the sounds of the shifting whispering sands of time.

Wishing you all the best, always.

Cowboy

Many thanks for your comment on my page, Jimmy, and for your great support and wonderful friendship through the years.

Congratulations again to Mark Hoekstra for winning the Golden Kayak for 2016 Best Blues Song and to you on your nomination for Best Country Song for your great song, "Dreams of a Boy".

Congratulations are in high order to you as well for assembling the amazing group of artists / musicians along with yourself for The Mighty Rivers Project and for your special role and part in writing the songs for the album project, and for dominating the IMP charts for weeks with many of the songs on the album.

The CD is on autoplay here, and has been and continues to be greatly enjoyed many times over. It is a classic, Jimmy, just like you in every respect.

Neil

Hi All,

My song "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET" was nominated for best Country Song Of The Year by IAIA (International Academy of Independent Artist) for a Golden Kayak Award. (2007)

I was very surprised and honored by this. Though I didn't win it was great to be picked for it. I was very happy that my buddy Neil w. Young won the Golden Kayak for Best Country Song Of The year with his THE COWBOY SONG.

I would like to congratulate all the nominees and especially the winners this year.

I would like to thank all those who have ever taken time to listen. Also to all the great e-mails from the many music lovers who said wonderful things about "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET". To all the people who have supported my singer/songwriter quest for so many years. To all of the Artist friends I have made on Myspace and KIAC Internet Radio. To the members and my peers of the International Academy of Independent Artist.

I would also like to thank and share this honor with my co-writers and producers Harry Hamm (Executive Producer) and Don Weber (Music Producer and Engineer).

I would also like to thank and share this honor with the great musicians that contributed tracks on "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET".

I would like to thank the INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF INDEPENDENT ARTIST for this much honored nomination.

Sincerely, Jimmy
