David Cottingham performing, "Dont Tell Me if I'm Dreamin ' " at Golden Shores Studio.
McCalla native and Tuscaloosa resident David Cottingham got his first guitar from his brother when he was 7 years old. David fell in love with music and became an avid singer, songwriter and musician. He honed his craft while playing in small venues and leading worship at his church over the past 30 years and has only recently begun to record the many songs in his guitar case. David recorded his heart warming song, "Don’t Tell Me if I’m Dreamin' "for his beautiful wife Karen. David originally wrote the song a few days before his marriage to Karen 20 years ago and sung it to her at their wedding.
