John: Can you tell us a little bit about your family?

Pat: I’m still married to Mike Deasy and we have a great life together. Several years ago he and four other guys formed a telecommunications company and in 2000 they sold it to Nokia. As a result, he was able to retire early. Right now, we’re getting ready to leave for England where we’ll be vacationing with another couple who used to live over there. We’ll drive to various areas to do some sightseeing, and I am really looking forward to it.

Our son Kevin is 43 and he is the best son in the world. Kevin has his own web design business, and he is very handsome, sweet and funny. He and his wife Katey have two sons. Drew is 14 and he loves to play the tuba. He also plays bass in the jazz band at school. Drew can tell you anything you want to know about a bug or a lizard and lots of other creatures, too. (laughs) Chad just turned 12 and he plays a saxophone in the school band. He loves sports. They are both real good boys and Katey has always been a very devoted, stay-at-home Mom. We see them all the time as they live only about a mile away from us. They have 22 acres of mostly wooded property and it’s just a great place to raise a family.

John: What kind of music do you listen to nowadays? Do you have any thoughts on contemporary country (or pop) music? Do you have any favorite male and female singers among those who are currently recording?

Pat: I listen to the country radio station but I don’t like some of what I hear. I don’t like what they call pop music today, either. When I’m in the car listening to the radio I go from station to station trying to find something I like and most of the time I end up listening to pop music from the 1970’s and 80’s. There are a lot of good singers in Nashville though—both male and female. I think Trisha Yearwood has a wonderful voice. I also like to listen to Celine Dion, Josh Groban , the Eagles and Rascal Flatts.

John: Do you ever foresee yourself making a comeback in the industry, or even just recording another CD for your fans (to market and distribute yourself)? Or, do you feel that chapter in your life is closed for good?

Pat: I don’t foresee myself making a comeback. The industry these days is way too youth oriented. But, I would love to record again. I always enjoyed working in the studio.

John: Please tell us a little bit about your life today.

Pat: After I retired from my music career I was fortunate enough not to have to work outside the home. Mike and I live on Green Mountain in South Huntsville on nearly three acres. Our land backs up to a 72 acre nature preserve and we are surrounded by all kinds of birds and animals. I have a black cat named Bo, whom I love dearly. I got him at an animal shelter when he was less than two months old and he is now eight. He still runs as fast as ever but I don’t let him go outside on his own. I bought a little dog harness for him and I take him out in the back yard once in a while for a walk. He’s wonderful.

I have loved animals since I was a child, and I always will. I can’t stand to think of an animal suffering in any way, especially at the hand of a human being. They have so much love to give, and those innocent eyes of theirs when they look up at you really get to me. There’s no way I could have ever worked at a pet store…I would have wanted to bring all the animals home with me! (laughs)

Religion has always been the most important thing in my life. My husband and I still attend church services every Sunday morning and Sunday night, and every Wednesday night, too. We’re both Bible class teachers on occasion, and we enjoy doing that.

You know, from the time I was a child, I always wanted to be a singer, but I always felt deep inside that when I married that would be the end of my dream. Over time, my life just went in a different direction, but believe me, I am a very happy and contented person. I have been extremely blessed, and it all worked out just the way it was supposed to.
