Wheels of Life

A little boy outside the hayfield

Watching the tractor mow the hay

Fascinated by the treaded wheels

On a September breezy day

He climbs a tree and feels the world

Resting at his feet

And he wonders if this feeling

Is just a boyhood fantasy

Looking back, Ridge has no regrets about taking the path of fiddle competitions. “The experience has given me lifelong friends from all over the country,” he added. “The CD release and the September appearance on the Grand Old Opry feels surreal. I know my future path will have valleys and mountains, but I know Who to follow. More than championship fiddler or singer-songwriter, the one thing I want people to know about me is that I’m a Christian. I believe Jesus was a perfect man, God born as a man. He showed His love for us, He died for us, took our sin on Himself. That is number one in my life. Then my family and friends.”
