Among My Souveniers
Paul E. Main was born in the State of Maine. He began his musical career at the age of eight. At the Age of fourteen he was writing arrangement for a fourteen-piece hotel dance band. Paul's musical interest took a sharp turn at age sixteen when he took a union fill-in job drumming for The Late, Great Ernest Tubb. Once bitten by the western swing played by the Texas Troubadours, Paul never looked back to his classical roots. In his words he'd rather 'create than duplicate'. Paul wrote several tunes recorded by other artists and earned the attention of Nashville Producer and Publisher Bill Bleckley. Under Bill's direction Paul wrote and recorded Mama's Love. That tune climbed the charts and Paul's recording career has been steady from that day. Paul has toured and appeared with Hank Thompson, Pam Tillis, Dick Curless, Ricky Scaggs and many more. Paul and his musical family, The Lonesome Highway Band, have toured extensively throughout the years and still maintain an active schedule. His soulful, smooth delivery displays his respect for those who paved the road of country music. All of his recording feature his own arrangements.
