I Know is dedicated to the memory of Joe Batcheller.
First and foremost, thank you to my family for never giving up on me, even when I did; Pat Glenn, for both extraordinary basses and lulling me out of retirement; and Ray Rector, without whom this would not have been possible.
The Honor Roll: Sam Anderson, Mark Minervino, and all my old friends back East who have wondered why this took so long; Ashley Thompson, Michael Madison, Theresa Arnold, and last but not least, Rose Rector, for her unbiased input (and great cooking!) throughout the making of this album.
Thank you to Cleve Warren and the staff at Larsen Music in Oklahoma City for general technical assistance, and just plain fun shop talk.
Kudos to Chris, Stan, and Cody for going above and beyond for me, and for making this album that much more fun!
Miss the ones who've gone, and in their honor, carry on: Mildred Laurence, Suzanne Laurence, Paul Laurence, Walter Ey, Craig Roche, and Joe Batcheller, who are all sitting together in a luxury box in Heaven preparing to throw manna at the stage.
Space does not permit me to list all of those who have helped along the way. If you've ever offered me a word of encouragement, a piece of constructive criticism, a round of applause, or a pink slip from your band, know that you're thought of and appreciated.
