NEWS & NOTES
On 23 April 2019, this site was totally re-vamped in format, optimized for viewing on portable devices, and significantly updated content-wise. Please enjoy the new and improved presentation!
In recent times, most websites have found their GUEST BOOK and COMMENTS sections to be a magnet for filth, lunacy, and spam. Unfortunately, that is also the case with this site, leading us to shut down those two functions. For your reading pleasure, however, I have cut & pasted, under that line below this paragraph, a sampling of entries from those pages prior to their demise. Enjoy! K. A. Patterson
REVIEWS OF THE "MONTGOMERY IN THE RAIN" ALBUM
K. A. Patterson brings to the table a fresh and innovative twist to the Classic Country sound. With each new collection of his writing that I hear I think ''wow, these songs are brilliant'' or ''this is as good as Country gets''. And then he tops it with the next session. His most recent offerings are no exception. I CAN ONLY BE YOUR FRIEND and LOST WITHIN YOUR CHARM are truly great traditional songs. And what can you say about my favorite of the bunch, MONTGOMERY IN THE RAIN? What a cool Bluegrass tune with an awesome feel, lyrics, production - everything! But it isn't just about slick production. K. A. writes remarkable Country songs with strong, infectious melodies and smart, meaningful lyrics, built around the true Country sound. Coupled with the great production quality, that makes his "Montgomery In The Rain" CD a "must listen" on the Nashville Independent Artist list. I urge everyone to give a listen and become familiar with K. A. Patterson. It's an amazing musical journey…
Steven L. Sharp, CEO and Founder of Sharp Objects
Carol Crakow I LOVE YOUR MUSIC. YOU HAVE MADE A BEAUTIFUL CONTRIBUTION TO THE INDUSTRY.
Bill Poindexter YOU GOT GREAT SONGS. Why aren't we hearing these ALL OVER the radio?!
Frank Fara (CEO, Comstock Records) DONE VERY WELL IN ALL RESPECTS Enjoyed your new "Montgomery in the Rain" CD. Done very well in all respects, and we would consider promoting the album for you in the International markets . . . to world radio stations and internet shows.
Lance Barnett (Musician in Austin, TX) I REALLY LIKE SEVERAL OF YOUR SONGS. "No One Else But You" - beautiful music, very good lyrics. "Louisville Lady" - love the hook, great song. I really like all the Mike Lusk vocals very much. . . has a great voice - he is really great for your songs. My friend Patti likes your music too. She likes the "romantic" and "sensitive" subjects.
Franz Ott (Austria) A GREAT ALBUM, EACH TRACK IS WONDERFUL. I hope I can order this CD with CD Baby soon.
Karen Whisman THEY ARE ALL GREAT, SO IT IS HARD TO HAVE A FAVORITE. On the 3 new songs, I have to agree with Mr. Sharp - they are the best so far. At first I thought I had a new favorite in "Montgomery in the Rain", but I think I've now decided that "Lost Within Your Charm" is my favorite. They are all great, so it is hard to have a favorite. But there is just something extra about Lost Within Your Charm that grabs me a little more than the others, I guess.
Rudy Catinchi MAKE MORE TIME TO WRITE!! I'm seriously telling you to lighten up on the Engineering work and make more time to write!!
Lars Lindberg (DJ in Sweden) SEVERAL SONGS UPON THE CD THAT WE'LL CHOOSE FOR AIRPLAY I'm glad to report that your excellent CD arrived here. ...Mike Lusk is doing a real great job when singing the songs that you wrote. And there [are] several songs upon the CD that we'll choose for airplay in the near future.
Lars Lindberg (DJ in Sweden) THE VERY GREAT MUSIC YOU PERFORM After listen[ing] to your new album, I considered to make this letter and ask...to receive a promotional copy of your CD. I would be very honored if I could include the very great music you perform in my show. It sure would have made my day!
Marti Allen IT SOUNDED SOOOO GOOD! We received the CD's. You definitely are very talented!!! Danny had them playing [the second we] got them. When he was cleaning the van, he had it playing in the van in the church parking lot. It sounded soooo good.
Laney Richardson YOUR SONGS REMIND ME OF LARRY GATLIN AND THE GATLIN BROTHERS... I think "Sheila's Wings" is the best song on the CD. Of course, it has a different sound to it, but I do like it a lot. And I like all the other songs. Your songs remind me of Larry Gatlin And The Gatlin Brothers from the 80's time period.
J. Brunhoeffer REALLY SOUNDS GOOD!!! I received the CD's and had a chance to listen to it a couple of times. Really sounds good!!! Skip got his copy and agreed it is as good as anything he has heard.
Kathy Hust FANTASTIC!!! I can imagine ANY of the big names singing them. I hope you become a great success with your songwriting. As far as I'm concerned, you already are...

Rod Bradey (DJ in Australia) THE LISTENERS REALLY ENJOYED IT I played the title track, "Montgomery In The Rain", on last night's show, and the listeners really enjoyed it, judging by the phone calls I received.

Rod Bradey (DJ in Australia) I WOULD LIKE TO FEATURE YOUR MUSIC ON MY RADIO PROGRAM I have been listening to some of your great Country sound, and I would like to feature your music on my radio program, "Stone Cold Country", which I present on radio station "Yarra Valley FM 99.1" in Melbourne, Australia. And I am hoping that you may be able to send down a copy of your CD so that I can spin a few tracks on the air for my listeners' enjoyment.
Carol Crakow THE CD SOUNDS AWESOME! We have shared it with the family. I really liked it! Our one granddaughter, the singer, said she also likes it very much...she sang along right away. All the best.
REVIEWS OF THE "LOUISVILLE LADY" ALBUM
All reviewers awarded Louisville Lady a 5-Star rating out of a possible 5 stars. Some are listed below.
Franz Ott (Austria) THIS ALBUM IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE Hello K.A. Sorry, my English is not good enough to write a review, but I can tell you this album is one of the best I have. I enjoy each track of this album, but my favorite song is "Louisville Lady". This song is excellent, and . . . a great voice. I hope, you will soon release another album (with more songs than five). All the best, Franz
J Brunhoeffer WONDERFUL LYRICS/GREAT LISTENING The lyrics are very passionate & soulful. I think everyone can relate to the sentiment in this CD. The music is reminiscent of Pure Prairie League. Great listening. A good addition to anyone's audio collection.
Danny Allen DEFINITELY A 5-STAR RATING!!!!! WOW This CD is Great!!! Very Enjoyable Listening! Catchy lyrics! This CD is a winner! All our family enjoys listening to it! We keep listening to it over and over again! Definitely a 5 Star-Rating!!!!!
Jasmine Allen You're AWESOME!!!!! . . . I just wanted to say your CD is completely awesome.....That is saying a lot because I typically don't like country music .....So keep it up....... and remember me when you become the next Alan Jackson!!!!!! Love, Jasmin
Kathy Hust IT'S SOME OF THE BEST MUSIC I'VE HEARD IN AGES I just finished listening to the complete CD. It will be a major injustice to the music world if someone doesn't grab these songs and make them the hits they are destined to be. It's some of the best music I've heard in ages. Thanks for sharing them.
