* RIP Harley Allen 3/30/11 *

Singer, songwriting great, HARLEY ALLEN, lost his battle with cancer this week.

You may not know his name but, surely you've heard his tunes. Take a minute to check out his songs recorded by artists such as Alan Jackson, Joe Nichols, Alison Krauss, Garth Brooks, etc...but, it was Harley's voice that got to me every time!

Here's a shot of Harley with another favorite singer of mine, Larry Cordle.
