His numerous hit songs include: “Night and Day”, “I Get a Kick Out of You”, “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”, and “You’re the Top”. Musical concepts and arrangements were developed by Dougee Zeno. The show was conceived by Randy Strawderman, and was originally produced by Barksdale Theatre in Hanover, Virginia.
