I took this photo at Cameron Lake on Vancouver Island. B.C.
This is my rendition of a song that was written and performed by Tom T Hall, an American country music songwriter, singer, novelist, and short-story writer. His early career included being a radio announcer. Hall's big songwriting break came in 1963, when country singer Jimmy C. Newman recorded his song, "DJ For a Day." Soon, Hall moved to Nashville, arriving in 1964 with $46 and a guitar; within months he had songs climbing the charts. Hall has been nicknamed "The Storyteller," and he has written songs for dozens of country stars, including Johnny Cash, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings, Alan Jackson, and Bobby Bare.
One of his earliest successful songwriting ventures, "Harper Valley PTA," was recorded in 1968 by Jeannie C. Riley, hit No. 1 on the Country Music Charts. It sold over six million copies, and won both a Grammy Award and CMA award. The song would go on to inspire a motion picture and television program of the same name. Hall himself has recorded this song. Hall's recording career took off after Riley's rendition of the song, releasing a number of hits from the late 1960s through the early 80s. This is a photo of Tom T Hall.
