Product Description

Jolly Roger Tailgunner is the story of a Tennessee farmboy who trades his guitar and hunting rifle for a much bigger gun when he joins the famed Jolly Rogers Bomb Group in the South Pacific during WWII. The story is told musically by his son, singer/songwriter David Ray Skinner with 15 original songs that range in style from bluegrass to rock and big band, with a little folk and gospel thrown in. The CD comes with a 20-page, color booklet with pictures and lyrics along with insights to the various stories behind the songs.

About the Artist

David Ray Skinner was born and raised in Nashville and grew up immersed in both the music and the history of the South, especially Tennessee. In the early '70's, Skinner attended Carson-Newman College, where he studied art and served as editor of the college's newspaper his junior and senior years. After graduating, he worked as reporter, cartoonist and delivery boy for a weekly newspaper in the Smoky Mountains. He also began writing songs about John Hunt Morgan, a once celebrated but now forgotten Confederate general who thundered down the backroads of Middle Tennessee. Skinner's love for art, design and music eventually landed him in New York City where he became the cartoonist and, later on, the Art Director for the now-defunct international music trade magazine, "Record World." After five years at "Record World," he spent his last few years in New York art directing Doubleday's prestigious "Literary Guild Magazine." Eventually, the lure of home, friends, kinfolks and the South proved to be too strong, and in 1984, Skinner moved to Atlanta and became involved in various projects, including Johnny Cash's gospel video, "Return to the Promised Land," for which he designed the logo and co-wrote the title track with Cash. He also renewed his interest in John Hunt Morgan and began writing more songs which eventually took the form of the concept album, "John Hunt Morgan: A Southern Legend." In 1997 the album was nominated for Gettysburg College's famed "Lincoln Prize," an award given annually to a literary work focusing on the American Civil War. Skinner's most recent album is "Jolly Roger Tailgunner," a tribute to his late father's experiences as a B-24 tail gunner stationed in the Philippines in World War II. It features a range of styles from bluegrass and big band to folk and Appalachian gospel.
