If It Ain't Country, Cook It Til It Is"
I love country music, and love creating it in it's true traditional form. I'm not really here looking for an A/R person. I've been there and done that. Most of them are deaf anyway. lol. I know all about walking up and down 16th Avenue South, Now Called Music Circle, trying to pitch a song to some tin eared publishing company executive, that couldn't make a D chord on a guitar..
When I look back I think about all the fun I've had with a guitar in my hand. I've played those large package shows, played the Opry, And a lot of Honky Tonks and Dives.... L M A O .. I've been up and down, damn near every interstate in the good ole USA. And Played Canada. I've been shot at and missed..Shit on and hit several times.
But here I am, still having fun pickin' And that's what it's all about...
I put some of my songs on here for fun, and a few old mountain standards. I play pedal steel, lead, guitar, banjo , bass, french harp, mandolin ,fiddle and keyboard. I recorded this music on a MRS-1266 Zoom Recorder. Using honky tonk Shure microphones. Nothing fancy just plain ole Hard core country music. lol Everything you hear is me, Almost A Lifetime Is really my bio in song, I hope you enjoy it. I also love that old mountain bluegrass type of music and play it here for fun. I Have met some great people here. One comment I got, put me to thinking .. "Old country music is dying or dead" the music business killed it. I wonder if that's really true, and if so.. Why? I still love them ole cheating drinking trucking country songs.
Trying to keep Traditional Country Music Alive..Well that's about enough about Me>>>

Through out my long career as an entertainer, and singer. I've hired many a musician to play in my band.[THE LUMBERJACKS] Some were better then others, but "Bill Sterling" topped them all with his great versatility as a musician and singer. His dress code alone was always immaculate. not to mention his great presentations. This brand new Hit album titled PURE STERLING is a must for all true REAL COUNTRY MUSIC Lovers. I am more then proud to add that Bill plays all the instruments on this, my all time most favorite "ALBUM" ...It's PURE STERLING ***** All the way
