David Tadlock


I was born and raised in the South.  The youngest of five children.  I was born on the 31st day of December 1967 in Greenville, Alabama. I was suppose to be a New Year’s Day baby and the nurse wound up delivering me.

My father was a minister and we moved several times around the state of Alabama while growing up.  I met my future wife Linda Lowe at a small country church my father pastored and on a cold December night in 1986 my father married us. We have been happily married for 30 years and counting. We lived in the small community of Honoraville, (pronounced: Hon-ora-ville) Alabama a few miles east of Greenville from where I was born. But now we live near Luverne.  We have one son and five dogs.  What can I say, we love dogs. I love writing songs, especially gospel songs and songs of humor. I also love to play the guitar and piano.  I have written several short stories and poems which you can read on my website at david-tadlock.com
