SLIM RECEIVING THE 2007 MAINE OLE OPRY AWARD FROM RUSTY ROGERS AND PATTY KEMPTON.
2004

THE SONG PLAYING NOW IS AN OLD HOAGIE CARMICHAEL SONG FROM THE "40s". I believe that the Ray Charles version helped to put him into the Country Music Hall of Fame. My wife, Carole Ann loves the song and until just recently she thought it was about the State of Georgia, which she loves. In April of 2007, The Pine Tree Country Music Association named my original song "Don't Give Up Your Day Job, Son" as the new Country Song of the year.

THANKS ALSO TO PTSCMA FOR NAMING ANOTHER ORIGINAL OF MINE "BORN TO WIN" AS THE RUNNER UP COUNTRY SONG, AND FOR AWARDING THE GOSPEL SONG OF THE YEAR TO ME FOR AN ORIGINAL SONG WRITTEN BY MY SON JAMIE, "I'M PRAYING TO YOU LORD".MY SON IS JAMIE HUNTINGTON OF PORTAGE, MICHIGAN AND THE SONG IS ALSO INCLUDED ON THE "SIMPLY SLIM with HARRY" ALBUM. ALSO, THE ALBUM WHICH CONTAINS ALL THREE OF THESE SONGS WAS RUNNER UP FOR THE RECORDING OF THE YEAR. THANKS TO JOAN COLE AND THE PTSCMA ORGANIZATION FOR THESE WONDERFUL AWARDS.

All of my CDs are available for only $12.00 each, plus $3.00 for S & H, any two for $25.00 S&H included, or--you may purchase all five albums for a total of $50.00 plus  $5.00 S & H and I will include an 8 X 10 autographed picture. I will also personally autograph each CD for you.

SLIM'S CD ALBUMS: "FAVORITES FOR A LIFETIME" Released May 2005; THIS ALBUM CONTAINS SIX ORIGINAL SONGS WRITTEN BY SLIM AND HIS YOUNGEST SON JAMIE OF PORTAGE, MICHIGAN AND ONE SONG WITH CONTRIBUTION BY OLDEST SON VICTOR, OF GRAY,ME. THE FIRST SONG ON THE ALBUM "THE AUTUMN OF OUR LIVES" IS SLIM'S OWN WORK, AND WRITTEN FOR SLIM'S WIFE CAROLE ANN, WHO CAME INTO HIS LIFE AFTER THE DEATH OF HIS SECOND WIFE GINI, IN 2001. "THE BALLAD OF JAMIE BEN" AND "WOULD YOU DARE" ARE BOTH ALSO SLIM'S OWN CREATION INVOLVING PERSONAL EVENTS IN HIS LIFE. "IT'S HARD TO CHASE A MEMORY" AND "THIS MIRROR AND ME" WERE BOTH COLLABORATIONS WITH JAMIE, AND "BROTHERS" WAS THE WORK OF JAMIE, SLIM AND VICTOR ON THE OCCASION OF THE DEATH OF ANOTHER BROTHER, SCOTT, IN 1999. THE ALBUM ALSO SHOWCASES THREE SONGS BY MEMBERS OF SLIM'S BAND, THE CUMBERLAND VALLEY BOYS W/VICKIE JAIMES. VICKIE PERFORMS, "BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE RAIN" WITH BACK-UP HARMONIES BY SLIM AND HARRY BAILEY, BOB PARRITT SINGS "WALK SOFTLY ON THIS HEART OF MINE", AND HARRY ADDS HIS RENDITION OF "OH LONESOME ME", WITH HARMONIES BY SLIM. TWO ADDITIONAL COVER SONGS ARE DONE BY SLIM WITH ALL THE BACK-UP SUPPLIED BY HARRY; "I MET A FRIEND OF YOURS TODAY", AND "DAY AFTER FOREVER". THIS IS A REALLY GOOD ALBUM AND I KNOW YOU WILL ENJOY IT!! ----------------------------------------------------------THE SECOND ALBUM RELEASED IN JUNE 2006 IS "SIMPLY SLIM W/HARRY" HARRY IS NONE OTHER THAN HAROLD BAILEY A WONDERFUL SINGER, BASS & GUITAR PLAYER, BACK-UP VOCALIST, AND STUDIO SESSION MANAGER WHO HAS BEEN WITH ME, OFF AND ON, SINCE HE WAS 18 YEARS OLD AND NOW IS "OVER 50". HE PERFORMS TWO GREAT SONGS ON THE ALBUM; "AMANDA" & "LODI" AND DOES A FIRST CLASS JOB ON EVERYTHING HE PERFORMS. THERE ARE 4 ORIGINAL SONGS ALSO ON THIS PRODUCTION. TWO BY ME, "BORN TO WIN" & "DON'T GIVE UP YOUR DAY JOB,SON". I HAVE WANTED TO WRITE "BORN TO WIN" FOR YEARS TO ADD A POSITIVE NOTE TO LIFE RATHER THAN "BORN TO LOSE". "DON'T GIVE UP YOUR DAY JOB,SON" SUMS UP THE GREATEST NUMBER OF COUNTRY MUSICIANS EFFORTS TO RISE IN THE PROFESSION AND HAS BEEN LIVED BY MOST OF US OLD TIMERS. TWO OTHERS WERE WRITTEN BY MY SON, JAMIE HUNTINGTON, FROM PORTAGE, MICHIGAN. THEY ARE "I'M PRAYING TO YOU LORD", A SWEET GOSPEL TUNE, AND "OUR GINI WITH AN "I", WHICH HE WROTE ABOUT MY SECOND AND LATE WIFE "GINI" WHO RAISED HIM SINCE HE WAS 8 YEARS OLD AND WHO HE LOVED DEARLY. __________________________________________________________ THE REST OF THE ALBUM CONSISTS OF COVER TUNES THAT I HAVE COME TO LOVE OVER THE YEARS AND HAVE DONE SOME SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR THEM. "RAMBLING MAN" AND "FREIGHTLINER FEVER" ARE TWO UP-TEMPO TUNES AND "DON'T YOU EVER GET TIRED OF HURTING ME", "THE WAYWARD WIND", ( I ARRANGED THIS WITH A SPECIAL BOLERO BEAT), AND "THE IMAGE OF ME" ARE OF LOVING AND LOSING; ALL THREE TYPICAL COUNTRY SONGS. "SHE WAKES ME WITH A KISS" IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LOVE SONGS EVER WRITTEN, AND I JUST HAD TO PUT THIS ON THE ALBUM AS A TRIBUTE TO ALL THREE OF MY WIVES. TWO OF WHOM HAVE PASSED ON AND MY CAROLE ANN, WHO MEANS EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD TO ME. I BELIEVE THAT THIS ALBUM IS MORE ROUNDED AND BALANCED THAN "FAVORITES FOR A LIFETIME" AS THE ADDITION OF SONNY BICKFORD ON STEEL GUITAR AND BEN MC KAYE ON THE HARP REALLY ADDS TO THE PRODUCTION. THEY ARE ALL CD'S THAT I AM EXTREMELY PROUD OF AND HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM.  Thank you for visiting my website. KEEP IT COUNTRY!!

SLIM'S THIRD RELEASE IS "THRU THE YEARS w/SLIM ANDREWS AND & THE CUMBERLAND VALLEY REVUE". THE ALBUM FEATURES SLIM SINGING 9 SONGS, 2 EACH BY HARRY BAILEY AND LYNN HUNTINGTON (SLIM'S DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, AND ONE BY NEICE, VICKIE GILBERT. THE ALBUM WAS GIVEN A '10' RATING BY INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITER, JIM FLYNN. **************THIS RELEASE "THRU THE YEARS w/SLIM ANDREWS & THE CUMBERLAND VALLEY REVUE" WAS JUST NAMED THE RECORDING OF THE YEAR BY THE MAINE COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION!!!!***********************************************************I HAVE JUST RELEASED MY NEW CD TITLED "SLIM ANDREWS & HIS ALVAREZ". THERE ARE 14 SELECTIONS OF WONDERFUL COUNTRY SONGS WHICH REPRESENT A REAL CROSS SECTION OF COUNTRY MUSIC BY SOME OF THE VERY BEST COUNTRY SINGERS. I CHOSE TO DO THIS CD USING ONLY MY ALVAREZ GUITAR FOR ACCOMPANIMENT. HAVING DONE SO MANY SOLO PERFORMANCES OVER THE YEARS, I WANTED TO REPRODUCE THE SOUND THAT THE AUDIENCE WOULD HEAR FROM ONE OF THOSE SHOWS WHICH I DO WITH ONLY THE GUITAR. THIS CD IS SO LIKE LIVE PERFORMANCES WITH ALL THE LITTLE UNIQUE RASPINESS CAUSED BY MY TWO THROAT OPERATIONS IN 1978. I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT. _________________________________________________________________MY CD "SLIM ANDREWS AND HIS ALVAREZ GUITAR"  HAS JUST RECEIVED THE RECORDING OF THE YEAR AWARD BY THE MAINE COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION FOR 2010!!!!!!!!!!!________________________________________________________A NEW CD HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED..  THIS IS A SPECIAL DEDICATION TO RUSTY ROGERS, A MEMBER OF 4 COUNTRY MUSIC HALLS OF FAME IN MAINE, MASS., R.I., & CONN. __THIS ONE IS ENTITLED "SLIM ANDREWS Dedication to Rusty Rogers", contains 22 excerpts from other tapes and recordings made throughout the years and some audio liner notes ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- JUST RELEASED!!!!!!SLIM ANDREWS SINGS IRISH.  11 SELECTIONS OF A CROSS SECTION OF IRISH MUSIC FROM GALWAY BAY TO DONEGAL!!!!!This is another re mastered collection of tapes produced in the 1990s while in Savannah, Georgia.  We even left a couple of glitches in just like live shows.  Nothing serious, just a botched ending on McNamara's Band.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
