Terry Dale Holderby was the first born to a military family in El Paso, Texas, December 15, 1958. At the age of six he wrote and sang his first gospel song, "Christian Cowboy." Terry taught himself to play the drums after only a few lessons.
While observing Reverend Jimmy Swaggart play the piano from the balcony, at one of his crusades, Terry was inspired, and taught himself to play the piano.
During August 2000, Terry's fourteen year old son Richard was stricken with two types of cancer. Terry waited helplessly and prayed for healing and answers, and after almost two years of treatment and hospitalization, and bone marrow transplant, Richard has been released and expected to recover. Just prior to Richard's illness, Terry composed "911 For Sin." A song, ironically, that depicted his soon to be dramatic experience in the ER room with his son fighting for his life. While Terry pleaded for his son's life, he dedicated his life to the Lord without reservation, and is seeing great happenings in his life.
Situated in Northwest Alabama he continues to write, and sing gospel songs whenever the opportunity arises. He is a husband, father, and dedicated Christian. His is fulfilling his hearts desire and plans extensive travels this year and next year. Terry's songs are heartwarming, born from experience, and dedicated for the glory of God.
