• Featured Image Please help Jimmie Vanzant

    Please help Jimmie and keep him and his wife Zee and the Van Zant family in your prayers.

    Recently Jimmie was diagnosed with liver cancer and his doctors at Vanderbilt Medical Center have told him he will need a life-saving liver transplant very soon. However, transplantation is enormously expensive. According to Transplant Living the total cost of a liver transplant including the pre-transplant expenses, procurement of the organ, hospital admission, doctor’s fees, post-transplant care, and anti-rejection medications for his lifetime is more than $575,000.

    As musicians both Jimmie and Zohra are self-employed. Due to his poor health Jimmie has been forced to stop performing while Zohra has become his full-time caregiver leaving them without an income. Unfortunately, he has no medical insurance and won’t be eligible for the Affordable Care Act until January 1, 2015. However, Jimmie’s doctors have recommended that he begin the evaluation and screening for a possible donor now.

    In order to ease the financial burden, a fundraising campaign in Jimmie’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the South-Atlantic Liver Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. If you wish to help Jimmie, then please consider making a contribution.

    For credit card contributions, please go to the link below and click the Donate Now button.

    Your support is crucial! Please believe Jimmie when he sings that he does not want to live an unfinished life. Please help Jimmie continue his journey.

    Artist Introduction
    “Great music to work and relax to, help lower your stress, and promote calmness!”

    About the artist:

    For Stan Williams getting to record an album with the legendary Outlaws band guitarist Steve Grisham and being able to meet some of his early musical icons and radio idols was a dream come true…

    Stan was barely 10 years old when his mom taught him how to play his first song on guitar and from then on he was hooked. At that time Stan and his parents were living in a rural isolated area, and had no access to formal music lessons, so he had to teach himself how to play by experimentation, a few occasional lessons from his dad who had been a professional musician himself for many years, and with the help of the few music books he managed to obtain. Perhaps that is the source of some of the originality and unusual musical stylings.

    By age 16 Stan had joined a local top 40 band named Midnight Special and began playing shows on weekends while attending high school and working at an electronics factory in the small town nearby.

    Stan went on to play with several different bands over the years, playing many types of music from Classic Rock to Bluegrass and after all these years, is finally ready pursue his dream of playing music full time.

    Some of Stan’s early influences were, The Ventures, Chet Atkins, Flatt and Scruggs, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Seger, Bad Company, Foghat, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, The Outlaws, Neil Young, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, to name a few.

    Peace Pipe was recorded at Mira Vista Studios and features:

    Stan Williams: Composer, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide guitar, bass guitar, and keyboards.

    Steve Grisham: Mandolin and audio engineer.

    Pug Baker: Drums.

    Steve Grisham toured with The Outlaws band through­out the 80′s, Wrote “Fall­en Hero” for the Dis­ney/Touch­stone movie: Can’t Buy Me Love, “Keepin Our Love Alive”, a top 40 hit for the Hen­ry Paul Band, “The Out­law” and “La­dy Luck” for The Out­laws band, was a Staff writ­er for Ron­nie Mil­sap Mu­sic, back up gui­tarist for Razzy Bai­ley, Tom Wopat (Luke Duke / Dukes of Haz­ard), Bob­by Bare, Jean­nie C. Riley (Harp­er Val­ley PTA), Robert Nix (At­lanta Ry­thym Sec­tion), Ar­timus Pyle (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and is currently touring with the Legends of Southern Rock and the Ghost Riders bands.

    Pug Baker is currently the drummer for the Ghost Riders Band and The Legends of Southern Rock band, Pug also co-wrote an al­bum with Johnathan Cain, of the band Journey, and wrote the theme song for the movie “The Ter­mi­na­tor”.

    Stan is currently working on new music that differs somewhat from the style of this album, and is for the most part more up tempo, electric guitar oriented songs with lyrics that tell about about the adventures of living life in the rural south, tales from the road, lessons learned, and perhaps even a love song or two.

    Stan also plans to record some “beats” or experimental instrumental pieces he has composed using real instruments rather than being electronically synthesized, as well as several more new instrumental pieces which are similar to the ones on the Peace Pipe album.

    The song Peace Pipe won a top ten song award in Rock Instrumental on www.Ourstage.com which is a partner of MTV.

    The song Peace Pipe is also a top 10 song at www.Soundclick.com and is the time of this writing number one in the Southern Rock charts there and has held the #1 spot almost continuously for several months now. Several more of Stan’s songs have held number one spots in the charts there in various genres.

    What fans are saying:

    5 Stars from Me! Wow! You sure do write/play and perform beautiful Hits! I love your music and it’s all so brilliantly composed and of the Most Excellent Caliber! You are a Unique Talent For Sure!
