About Your Host:

My name is Del Sutton.  I am from Kansas City, Missouri. My father loved traditional country music and my mother Broadway musicals and opera. Because of this gamut of musical tastes I listened to all types of music. My Dad would take me to country shows in Kansas City, Kansas. I was raised and loved to sing along with Marty Robbins, Eddie Arnold, Jim Reeves, and loved the country music of the 80s particularly the Gatlin Brothers, Alabama, Clint Black, George Strait, Tim McGraw, Bob Dylan, Dan Fogelberg, John Denver and the like. I have sung and performed all of my life and have written songs since I was 15 years old. I have over 400 songs all properly copyrighted and I am the sole writer. I have taught choral music for over 29 years in both public schools and churches. I graduated from Ottawa University in music and I love a good, singable melody. What makes my songs unique is the way I always have singable melodies that I believe artists and audiences will like. I have songs from all genres from country, worship, and praise, patriotic, seasonal, especially Christmas, and inspirational. My desire is to pitch songs that a company like yours could use for new and upcoming artists to perform.
