"Riding With Private Malone" Released 20 Years Ago! 8/13/01

It was 20 years ago that "Riding With Private Malone" was released to Country Radio. Many associate it with the patriotism that followed the 9/11 attacks, though the song had been on the charts almost a month prior. Written by Thom Shephard and Wood Newton, David first heard it on a songwriters show at the Opry. He asked those two writers if he could record, so he went home & worked up a little version in his home studio. He had already finished recording the "Amigo" album for Dualtone Records, but decided to sneak that song onto the album at the last minute.

Attached here is the cover art of the single. Enjoy!
