Mike Whiteley

I created this website for a couple of reasons. I tell myself that this is a logical step towards reaching my goal of becoming a published songwriter. But, truth be told, the main reason I'm doing this is to shut my Mama up. She has always been my biggest fan, my best friend and the well meaning thorn in my side since I sang her that very first song. As Mamas do, she has always loved my songs, even when they were crap. She's told me, over and over, that I need to let more folks hear my songs. So I am. I love you, Mama.

Mama thinks the only difference between me and Trace Adkins is luck, and timing. Bless her heart. Truth is, I'm not a singer, nor do I have dreams about being on stage in front of screaming fans. I just want to write songs. Good songs that the world can relate to. I wrote my first song in 1985, and I've been hooked ever since. I'd like to think that I've improved over the years, but, the last song I wrote has paid me as much as the first one did. Goose egg. Oh, well. I've never written a song because I thought it would make money. I write them because I have to. I always will, regardless.

I believe my best songs are waiting to be written, and I can't wait to get started. 

Please let me know what you think about my songs. If it stinks, let me know. I have broad shoulders, I can take it. Thank you, very much, for taking the time to listen. Take care,  Mike
