Paul Craft's Music and Drum City

Paul Craft always felt a pull towards music but was not just sure how it would take hold in his life. For a time he ran a music store in Memphis called Paul Craft’s Music and Drum City all the while writing poems and setting them to music. When he felt he could write songs, he headed up the road to Nashville where he cut demos and awaited the chance to have his songs published. Over the years, he became a well-respected and well-recorded songwriter having his music performed by many top artists. Among his hits was “Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goal Post of Life.”
