A message from Benny D:

“I feel so blessed to be working with such cool country music artists, an amazing cast of true professionals and wonderful friends, and a crew of producers who are literally “Taking Over the Country”! Lately I’ve been reminded how important it is to be thankful for what you have been given, to stay Faithful and True to the commitments you’ve made, and to continually seek the One who has given you all the right opportunities. The picture is so much bigger than we make it out to be!”
