I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU A LITTLE ABOUT ME

FIRST I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY WEBSITE. I DO APPRECIATE THAT YOUR TAKING THE TIME TO DO SO. TIME IS A RARE COMMODITY FOR ALL OF US SO I VALUE THE TIME YOUR TAKING TO EVEN STOP BY MY SITE.

MY ROOTS IN MUSIC

I WAS RAISED ON COUNTRY MUSIC AND SOUTHERN GOSPEL MUSIC. THE HUDSONS AND HENSLEYS ARE A LARGE FAMILY . ONE OF MY COUSINS WAS WELL KNOWN IN COUNTRY MUSIC. PATSY CLINE. I HAVE MANY RELATIVES THAT PLAYED SANG AND WROTE COUNTRY MUSIC. ITS IN MY BLOOD SO TO SPEAK.

AS A CHILD I GREW UP LISTENING TO THE GRAND OL OPRY . I STILL REMEMBER AND SOMETIMES SING SOME OF THE OLD SONGS  LIKE MARTY ROBBINS EL PASO , JOHNNY CASH RING OF FIRE , A BOY NAMED SUE, FOLSUM PRISON AND SO ON. THEN OF COURSE THERE IS GOOD OL WILLIE NELSON . WILLIE WROTE  THE SONG CRAZY THAT  PATSY CLINE SANG . WILLIE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES AND I SING A LOT OF HIS SONGS.

ONE  MAN THAT REALLY INFLUENCED MY SINGING WAS GOOD OL MERLE HAGGARD . COUNTRY MUSIC HAS LOST ONE OF THE GREATEST. HIS SONGS AND MEMORY WILL LIVE ON . RIP MERLE YOUVE LEFT A GREAT LEGACY AND HAVE INSPIRED SO MANY ARTIST.

PATSY CLINE WAS A CLOSE FRIEND TO MS LORETTA LYNN. ANOTHER CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE USE TO HANG WITH  WAYLON JENNINGS  AND SPENT A LITTLE TIME AROUND LORETTA. I RECENTLY SENT ONE OF MY NEW CD'S TO LORETTA WITH A LETTER AND A PHOTO OF HER AND PATTY A CLOSE FRIEND. I RECEVED A NICE LETTER BACK AND I HOPE TO SPEAK WITH LORETTA SOON.

MY MOTHER HAD SOME OLD 8 TRACKS OF CONWAY AND LORETTA, DOLLY PARTON , CHARLIE PRIDE, AND MANY MORE. AS I SAID I GREW UP ON COUNTRY MUSIC. MY MOTHER WAS FROM MANCHESTER KY AND HER MOTHER WAS FROM KNOXVILLE TENN . I SPENT A LOT OF TIME  IN KY AND TENN.

I REMEMBER AS A CHILD SITTING IN A SMALL DINER IN LONDON KY WITH MY FAMILY AND PLAYING A JUTE BOX WITH MERLE HAGGARD SINGING  FIGHTIN SIDE OF ME. IVE LOVED HIS MUSIC EVER SINCE.

I STARTED PLAYING GUITAR AT THE AGE OF 7 THEN PIANO  AT THE AGE OF 9 , THEN  A COUSIN OF ROY CLARK STARTED COMING TO OUR CHURCH  SO I PICKED UP MANDOLIN TOO. LATER I ADDED THE BASS GUITAR. I PLAY SOME ELECTRIC LEAD AND RYTHM GUITAR.

AFTER WRITING SOME GOSPEL SONGS  I MET PATTY AT CHURCH AND SHE USE TO SING AND PLAY WITH WAYLON AND A FEW OTHER SINGERS. SHE  CONTINUED TO TELL ME I SHOULD  LET OTHERS HEAR ME  AND  SING  COUNTRY  AND LET PEOPLE  GET TO KNOW ME.

SO , I WROTE  SOME SONGS AND WENT TO MY GOOD FRIEND  JEFF WHITAKER . JEFF BY THE WAY  HAS ALSO BEEN IN COUNTRY AND BLUE GRASS MUSIC FOR MANY YEARS, HIS FATHER  CHARLIE USE TO DRIVE BUSS FOR BILL MONROE AND HE ALSO PLAYS GUITAR AND MANDOLIN.

JEFF BACKED ME UP WITH SOME BASS , LEAD GUITAR AND VOCALS ON SOME OF MY SONGS.

WE RECENTLY RECORDED MY NEW CD AT TKAT STUDIOS WITH TOM GRINDLE IN KENTON OHIO.

WELL , THERES A LITTLE ABOUT ME, I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE NEW CD. I DID SOME SONGS THAT  SO FAR  MANY HAVE REALLY ENJOYED AND I HOPE YOU DO TOO. JEFF BACKED ME ON ONE CALLED MISSING YOU AND  I THINK IT HAS A CHESNEY STYLE TO IT . THE SONG  HERE BY MYSELF  IS SORT OF A WAYLON JENNINGS STYLE AND TELLS  A STORY OF A MAN WHO GOT A DEAR JOHN LETTER AND IT HAS AN INTERESTING ENDING WITH HIM AS A GHOSTLY PRISONER IN THE HOUSE  HE AND HIS WIFE USE TO HAVE. SEE WHAT YOU THINK .

I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE SONGS . YOU CAN LISTEN TO SEGMENTS OF THEM BY GOING TO  YOUTUBE AND PUTTING IN MY FULL NAME  LARRY R HUDSON  PLEASE USE MY MIDDLE INITIAL R AS THERE IS ANOTHER  SINGER WITH MY FIRST AND LAST NAME .

SINCERELY
