Barry writes, "Some of these songs I grew up singing while my mother played the piano in our little church. Traditional greats such as “Mansion Over the Hilltop”, the medley “I Saw the Light / I’ll Fly Away”, a haunting version of “Wayfaring Stranger”, my wife’s favorite hymn “Suppertime”, and finally “Life’s Railway to Heaven”. There is a great joy that awaits us in Heaven. My song “Joy Sweet Joy” tells of that excitement and the song “Too Much Trouble” reveals how we all sometimes fail at helping others out. I wrote “Crown of Thorns” about The Passion of Jesus Christ. My mother’s favorite track is “Ridin’ Along the Cimarron”, that I wrote after pushing cattle through the Cimarron River in northern Oklahoma."
