“Music opens the heart,” Jimmy Jack Whitaker said. “I go into prisons and I’m able to see that.” “The music is what opens the heart, and then whatever you feed into that heart [the message] once it is open will determine your outcome.” August 8, 2014 "CALLED" awarded VIDEO OF THE YEAR at the INTERNATIONAL COUNTRY GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION
Jimmy Jack Whitaker has become all too familiar with the stretch of highway he travels from Nashville, Tennessee to southwest Oklahoma. Nashville is where he laid the foundation for his songwriting career, southwest Oklahoma is where his family resides. The award-winning songwriter who grew up in Snyder spent the beginning of his summer in Lawton performing a series of intimate local shows. However, he’ll soon hit the highway again, in true musician fashion, embarking on an intimate tour where he’ll play churches, festivals, prisons, nursing homes and just about everywhere in between.
Whitaker spends a lot of time alone, as he’s virtually a one-man show who travels from one gig to the next. With him, a collection of personal photo albums full of images taken during his time spent with music legends, like Charlie Daniels, Willie Nelson, or his mentor, legendary songwriter Gary S. Paxton, just to name a few.
Whitaker plays several instruments and possesses tremendous vocal talent, but refers to himself as a songwriter foremost. Despite several accolades dating back to the 1970s, he says he is most proud when other artists record his tunes. He’s had many of his songs covered from several genres of music.
Jimmy Jack Whitaker is an award-winning songwriter, artist, and producer. He was born in Vernon, Texas and went to high school in Snyder, Oklahoma, where he was a two time allstate musician and recieved a music scholarship at Oklahoma State University. ...Not only has Jimmy Jack recorded many of his own songs, but he has written songs recorded by T Jae Christian, Stella Parton, T Graham Brown, Gold Wing Express, Paul Alan Koons, Dan Duncan, The LeCroy Sisters, Frank Pizzaro FDNY, D'Ramirez, Natalie Isaacs, Mary Lee, Jackie Cox, The Fox Brothers, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Amy Jordyn, Two Hearts 'n Him, K.O.White, Paul McQueen, Dan Johnson, The Singing Nun, The Pearly Gates, Zane Trusty, Jack Fultz, Jayne Lance, Dan Glidden, Sommer Jones, Country Thunder, Rene and Edie Jones, and many more. Jimmy Jack has also written songs with many successful writers such as Greg Gordon (Elvis, Tanya Tucker), Royce Porter (George Strait, Kenny Rogers), Jim Goff (The Allman Brothers), Jim Robinson (Restless Heart), Roy August (Oak Ridge Boys), T Jae Christian (Roy Orbison) Gary S. Paxton (multi Grammy winner), and many others.He supports ‘School for Life Ministry’ in Gary, West Virginia where McDowell County is the poorest county in the U.S.A,'The Rock House  Ministries' in Rockford, Illinois that feeds over 100 inner city kids, and 'Global Missions' in Rogersville, Tennessee. He performs for Christian Biker groups, Military Veterans events, churches, jails and prisons, nursing homes, and street ministries.  <Full Bio>

Episode 132Give Me A Break Radio Hour ~ With Host Bobby Pizazz ~ Remembering John Mitchum ~ By Cindy Mitchum Azbill

Since the passing of John Mitchum in 2001, his family has maintained efforts to have John’s contribution to films, television, and American culture be recognized by collecting recordings of his many friends and admirers reciting their favorite Mitchum poem set to music, an idea suggested by Ernest Borgnine and AC Lyles. This has been a long undertaking, as many of these people are busy with their own careers in film and television.We started this project late Spring/early Summer of 2001. Dad had suffered a major stroke after learning of the sudden death of his only son, my brother, Jack.While my half sister Victoria worked with Dad daily on physical rehabilitation and nutrition, giving him back his strength and coordination, I worked toward giving him a purpose to fight. Hence, this book.When I told Dad he needed a forward for the book and asked who he wanted to write it, he firmly said “you.” Believe me, that took me by total surprise. I was expecting one of his many well-known friends to be named. When I questioned him on his decision he simply said “No one knows me like you.”When he read what I had written, he looked up with tears in his eyes and said “thank you.”How many times growing up did my brother and I hear “You are so lucky to have John Mitchum for a father!” We would look at each other and shrug our shoulders. Of course we knew Dad was an actor, writer, poet and singer, but it was no big deal. That’s just who he was. Dad never had an ego attached to anything he did, so we took it all as a matter of course.Dad had friends from all walks of life. He taught us by example not to be judgmental, bigoted or hateful. We never knew upon opening the front door who or what would be on the other side.

It might be John Wayne to discuss “America, Why I Love Her,” or an unknown but equally important stuntman. It could have been Bill Grote—a geologist for The Department of Water and Power, or Bob Finney who was an engineer at NASA. Or it might have been some hungry kid Dad picked up hitch-hiking. Thirty years later that same hungry kid — Diane Stroebel and her husband Guy were right by my side when Dad passed away. Dad and his friends set the bar of professionalism for all of us. Even to his last performance at the Golden Boot Ceremony if Dad was asked to recite one of his poems or songs he simply cleared his throat, looked skyward to ground himself and he was THERE. Dad was equal in Uncle Robert’s renowned ability to remember lines and stories. In all my life, I never saw Dad “warm up” for anything. His final spoken words to me in ICU was the poem “America, Why I Love Her” in its entirety.When his mother was turning 90 and the family was having a huge celebration for her, I came up with a great idea. We were living in Las Vegas at the time. I called Dad in Los Angeles and told him to write a poem for Nana. Within 10 minutes he called back with “That’s My Mother,” which my husband put to music. The two of them performed it together for Nana at the party after just one run through.

Dad did just about the same thing this past winter when Dale Evans passed away. I would say her poem was written within 15 minutes.When I was a child Dad was always busy. He appeared in over 800 TV shows, 60 movies, recorded an album with Dan Blocker, as well as having John Wayne, Ken Curtis, Lorne Greene, and Forrest Tucker record his poetry and songs. He was nominated for a Grammy for John Wayne’s recording of “America, Why I Love Her.”

If that were not enough, Dad was always the first to volunteer for a benefit or charity event. He masterminded several of his own for friends in need. He campaigned across the country with Jim Drury, Jon Locke, and The Sons of The Pioneers for Barry Goldwater in the 1960’s. All of this while keeping our house open to all our friends and strays.

In honesty it wasn’t until I hit my 40’s and really looked back at my childhood before I began to appreciate my father; the life he has given me, the “jewels” in the vast array of beautiful people he has introduced me to, the love of knowledge, beauty, humor and friendship.

Now I look at his body of work and I am in awe. Not only is it enormous, but it is beautiful. When I gathered all the poems and songs together for this book Dad commented “I’ve been rather prolific!” Still no ego there.Now in giving you this collection of a lifetime of work I can say “Yes, I am lucky to have had John Mitchum for a father.” I miss you Daddy.Cindy Mitchum Azbill

JACK CLEMENT ONCE SAID: 

          WE ARE IN THE FUN BUSINESS AND IF YOUR NOT HAVING FUN ON STAGE...
          YOUR NOT DOING YOUR JOB

WELL I CAN HONESTLY SAY..I HAVE DONE MY JOB.. AN DONE IT WELL
          ( SOMETIMES TOO WELL )
I HAVE BEEN WRITING  MY SONGS AND SINGING THE BLUES MOST OF MY LIFE....
WHEN I WASN'T WRITTING IT...... I WAS LIVING IT...AND LIVING IT HARD

AS A YOUNG MAN I WAS WILD AS THE RIVER AN TWO TIMES THE COLD
I TRUELY BELIEVE MUSIC SAVED  ME FROM A LIFE BEHIND BARS...
AND OPENED MY HEART TO A LIFE MOST JUST DREAM ABOUT

          I CAN REMEMBER BEING A KID IN REFORM SCHOOL.....
          SITTING ON THE HOT BOX 
(a metel box that went over the radiators so you wouldn't get burned )
AND LISTENING TO BRUCE CHENNEL SING A SONG CALLED...HEY BABY
AND I WOULD PLAY THE HARMONICA PART OVER AND OVER
          TILL I GOT IT JUST LIKE THE RECORD
          ( DELBERT McCLINTON play'd on the record )
   A FEW YEARS AGO I GOT TO PLAY WITH BRUCE ON THAT SONG 
          ( an so proud to have the privlidge to call him my friend )
...IT WAS A FULL CIRCLE MOMENT FOR ME
          LIKE A DREAM.. MY DREAM...
   HAD COME TRUE...HOLLY SHIT!!!
I KNEW RIGHT THEN IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO JUST BELIEVE IN GOD...
YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS
YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
AND IF YOU DO THAT...YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE
