Rick Paul’s “If I Could Turn the Hands of Time”, from his “Love Holds On” album was previously recorded and released by two other independent artists. Jennifer Lynn, a young country singer from Houston, Texas, included it on her “Right Before My Eyes” CD back in 2001. Paul Johansen, a Norwegian alternative country singer, was next, putting it out on his “Gone With The Wind” album in 2003. Several other artists have used the song on their demo recordings, too. Rick’s release of it came out in July 2009.
Rick Paul’s “Fly”, from his “Love Holds On” album was originally written as an entry in the American Idol song contest. The song didn’t get anywhere in the contest, then a year or two later one of Rick’s longtime friends was celebrating a silver wedding anniversary. With a few minor tweaks to the lyrics, Rick repurposed the song as an anniversary song. It is this new version of the song, which could also work as a graduation song, that was recorded for Rick’s album.
