In 1973 he started out as performing artist with a not succesful selftitled album. It would take five years before he released the sequel. In the meantime he still wrote for other Nashville artists. but from 1978 and on his solo career was in focus. In 1990 the outlaw country supergroup Highwaymen had a minor hit with a cover of his song "Silver Stallion". The song would also be covered by Cat Power on the 2008 album "Jukebox".
