Pray For Rain
written by Doug Moreland, ASCAP (composer/author and publisher)
Doug wrote this song during the Texas Rock House fire of April 2011. His hometown and his parents fought to save their homes and town from one of Texas' largest wildfires. Fortunately his parents were home and managed to save their property, which was on the edge of the town as the fire moved in, also helping prevent the whole town from being burned to the ground. It was quite a traumatic experience (his mother's hair actually got burnt, as she desperately worked to save their wagon shop and home). Growing up there in west Texas, Doug worked alongside his father who was the fire chief in town, as they put out many grassfires (they never had a house fire!), just not quite one of this proportion!
