In the year 2000 Lefty made the most important change of his life by rededicating his life to Christ. In 2002, at the age of 39, Lefty left the country music scene and moved to Memphis where he entered a Christian seminary.
Now at 54, Lefty is releasing his first album ever, My Heavenly Home, and yes, it’s an all original cowboy-style gospel music collection. You can hear Lefty’s inspiration from the Hag in his patriotic tunes God, Guns and Glory and One Nation Under God. You are sure to feel Lefty’s love for God and country in the song Free Land. His toe-tapping Texas swing style reveals itself in He Came From Heaven, Is Christ Your King and I’m On The Right Road Now. The impact of gospel music on Lefty is naturally shown in Are You Ready and You Light Up My Pathway. The is no title cut on Lefty’s album, but the songs My Celestial Home and What’s It Gonna Be Like was the drive for the name. Other songs like The Keeper of My Soul, Time is Moving On and Why You O’ Lord reveal a pop influence in his songwriting style. Lefty said, “I believe this is an album with a positive and inspirational message to this nation and the world of God’s great love for us by giving us His greatest gift of all, His Son and the world’s Savior, Jesus Christ. It is my hope the lyrics and melodies of this album are instrumental in leading the lost to the cleansing blood of the Lamb of God.”
