I live a very blessed life and have had so many of my dreams come true through playing music. I realized along the way that if you have an audience that you should try to give back to them in a positive way. My way of giving back, besides the music, is writing children's books that are about todays issues. The books give children,parents and teachers a common ground to bond,love, and discuss these issues for a better tomorrow. Amen

When Zac Brown shared with Coy, his idea to write a cookbook, Coy was immediately excited. Zac described his vision to Coy. He explained that he wanted to create something totally different from any other cookbook. He wanted it to be full of pictures, stories and poetry from his rich southern heritage, as well as reveal the recipes he has spent so many years perfecting. He also wanted the book to contain recipe card that could be removed and stored along with other recipes.
Coy loved the idea and offered to participate in the project. He wrote the introduction and several of the stories throughout as well as assisted Zac in the completion process. He says, “It was one of the coolest projects I’ve ever been part of. I’m really proud of it.”
From time to time I like to speak my mind. I do that in this blog. I can take off my floaties and go to the deep end and drop some serious science about the way I think about life,talk about how awesome it would be to eat ice cream with Elvis, how I'm afraid of heights but not snakes, or talk about what me and my childhood buddies would do if one of us one the lottery. It's all good stuff so check it out.
