This is a collection of songs that either feature or remind of my father, Gary Smith. This is a mix that is intended for summer road trips, or having a beer on your porch. These are the songs that I would listen to with my father as a kid, or songs that reminded me of my father as I grew up. He once made me promise that I would make sure that ‘Free Bird’ got played at his funeral. You bet I’ll do it, but I hope I never have to. Enjoy the mix!
