"You can say there's no such thing as Santa, but as for me and Grandpa, we believe..."
You've heard that song, made popular by Elmo & Patsy - it's as much a part of the holidays as picking the tape off the corner of a present to sneak a peek inside before the 25th. (You know you do.) Randy Brooks has been writing "songs with punch lines" for over 40 years, including the one that put his kids through college, "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer". Ever since his high school folk trio traveled to New York to appear on CBS's Ted Mack Amateur Hour, Randy has been an "over-achieving amateur". While "Grandma" topped Billboard's Christmas chart multiple times, another million-seller for Randy was "Grandma's" B-side, "Percy, The Puny Poinsetta". He's been called the most phenomenal novelty songwriter in his immediate zip code...and not afraid to tackle the tough subjects - not only holiday pathos, but things like intestinal disorder, and attraction among the unattractive. Upon hearing Randy (the former SESAC Songwriter of the Year) play at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, songwriter Beverly Ross ("Judy's Turn To Cry", "Lollipop") gave him one of the highest compliments a wordsmith can ever hope to hear - that he was like Ray Stevens. Some of Randy's songs have appeared on CDs of his bands Young Country, the Bad Monkeys, and Southwestern Pilgrimage. But in 2013, he finally released a CD of his own. As Randy says, "If this doesn't jump-start the American economy, then I don't know what will." You've been his fan for years without even knowing it...now that you do, you simply must get this CD!
