During the recent State Convention of Texas Lions, held in Midland, Texas, the group successfully brought to a close the 99th year of Lionism, and officially kicked off the Centennial Celebration. On hand was singer/songwriter Karen Taylor-Good who entertained and celebrated with her own songs about Lionism.
Taylor-Good and her then-husband, Bill Taylor, started the Mesa Records label in 1982. Her first single, “Diamond in the Rough,” reached the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart early that year. Taylor-Good was nominated for Best New Female Vocalist at the 1984 Academy of Country Music Awards. After Mesa Records folded in 1986, she sang jingles for Taco Bell, United Airlines and Peter Pan Peanut Butter.
She wrote a book, On Angel’s Wings, and has produced eight CDs of her original material. Taylor-Good has presented her “musical keynotes” to many groups, including The American Business Women’s Association, The National Hospice Foundation, and Lions Clubs International.
At the meeting she shared the stage with PIP Joe Preston. The event was inspiring and uplifting and was considered the highlight of the Convention.
As of 2012, she is living in Nashville with her husband of 30 years, Dennis Good, and her daughter Rachael Good.
