No not the MOR crooner but a Texas based artist. His Dal-Segno cut Happiness And Peace Of Mind is a very tasty slow blues ballad with distant echoes of Mr Bland about it. His rich baritone vocals fit the lazy paced mood of his self penned number well and the big horn section includes a prominent alto sax which gives a "crying" feel to the background. A late nite special.
UPDATE ~ I'm grateful to Alan Wheway for the updated discography.
Happiness and peace of mind / Just can't get it together ~ DAL-SEGNO 5003 (mid 60s)
