'
Memories of Dad' is one of the most moving tributes to ancestry we've ever heard - a eulogy of great power and a classic piece of country music, too.

'Ferris has a voice that could upstage Randy Travis and the songwriting skills to get where the other musician resides in music history.'



 

Indie Music Award 

I was very surprised to find out that I had been nominated for best Gospel song and best Country Demo.  Imagine my surprise when I won the best Country Demo for one of the old time country songs that I recently wrote.  It is a humbling experience to know your music is being listened to by people so far away.
