He had this to say about “My Friend Fred”
“Hello folks, as promised, here is “My Friend Fred” that we recorded and mastered at Wishbone Studios in Muscle Shoals. It was written by Billy Lawson and Ed Hill and tells the sobering story about how a terrible drug addiction impacted the life of one man and everything around him, including his family and friends. I really related to this story the first time I heard it because I have seen drug and opioid addiction destroy way too many precious lives, families and really great people. I am glad to be able to send it to you and really appreciate your help and support with it
Thank you very much and God Bless!”
