His first single, "Angelina", reached No. 8 on the Canadian country music charts. In subsequent years, "Goldmine", "No Trespassing", "Mustang Heart", "I Give You My Word", "What's Holding Me" and "Breakfast Alone" also became top 10 singles and signature songs. He has written a book of short stories depicting ranch life entitled My First Cow.[citation needed]
