Cliff's song "Chasin' her Daddy's Ghost" is one of the featured songs on the CD. It is an incredibly special song to Cliff and his family because he wrote it about trying to fill his father-in-law's shoes.
"...They might as well belonged to Superman. Tried to be all he was but I just can't. But I keep on trying. Well I've worn a hole in both the sole's trying to fill the boots of her hero. Heaven knows, I ain't even coming close. Chasin' Her Daddy's Ghost."

Check out the Columbus Dispatch video story about "Melodies in Motion" featuring Cliff.
"Many times when I am carrying my guitar through airports, flight attendants and ticket agents will jokingly say "Why don't play us a song?" And I finally got the chance thanks to Port Columbus International Airport. Special thanks to BarbVarga, "Melodies in Motion" at the Port Columbus for supporting live music and local musicians. Check out the Dispatch video about the new "Melodies in Motion" program at Port Columbus."
Although I am a Registered Nurse, I get to live out my dream by being a full-time musician. Who gets to do that? Thank you all for allowing me to play your neighborhood bars, backyard BBQ's, graduations and anniversary celebrations. I have played at funerals, weddings and everything in between. Your support means that I get to open for national acts like Jamey Johnson, Gary Allan,Tracy Lawrence, Aaron Lewis, Phil Vasaar, Blackberry Smoke, David Allan Coe, Parmalee, The Charlie Daniels Band and Randy Houser. Because you get a babysitter, drive and come out to see me, I get to sing almost every night. Because you save your vacation time and travel to see me, I get to sing in places like Key West, the beaches of New Hampshire, South Carolina, upstate New York, Texas and Wyoming. You invite my family to these events in your lives and for that I forever grateful. This life that I have means that I can live in a little log cabin, pay for my daughter's braces and share all of this my wife of 17 years. This...is the life.
