This book does not include the CD that was originally in the back. It came broken and I threw it. Seldom has an American Country musician changed the face and tenor of the modern-day genre with as much impact as has Paul Overstreet-the humble songwriter who chose to stop writing songs about misery and start writing songs that affirm family, the joys of marriage, staying faithful and finding happiness, honoring your parents. These songs have gone on to become huge hits for Country artists such as Randy Travis, Tanya Tucker, Paul Davis, the Judds. In his own words-and with the voluble agreement of his hundreds of fans, who wrote emails to his website-Paul tells how he was inspired to write such hits as "I Fell In Love Again Last Night", "Same Old Me", "Forever and Ever, Amen", "Heroes", "On the Other Hand", "Sowin' Love", "When You Say Nothing At All"...and so many others. This book is a celebration of a life once lost, now found-and a man who has written songs that have touched so many others in their everyday lives. Foreword by Randy Travis.
