Mike currently has 10 albums total, the most recent being, "Nashville Ain't Gonna Come To Me". This album has already earned 2 International awards. In March 2007, Mike was awarded NACMAI Songwriter of the Year (Modern Country), for the title track, "Nashville Ain't Gonna Come To Me", and 2007 NACMAI Songwriter of the Year (Holiday), for "It just Don't Feel Like Christmas", also on the album.
