Roy Payne is an icon of Canadian Country music. He was born in Trout River, Newfoundland and was raised by his grandparents. He served 12 years in the Canadian army, and was a truck driver amongst other odd jobs before making music his full-time vocation. Over the years, drawing upon life experiences, Roy wrote close to 2000 songs for various country artists as well as himself.
On June 7th, 2015 Roy did a concert at the Purple Hill Country Hall in Thorndale, Ontario at which time he announced this would most likely be his last performance citing a throat problem that makes singing quite difficult.
This particular song was initially recorded by the late, great Waylon Jennings….a good friend of Roy’s.
