Rick Moranis, Honey I Shrunk The Agoraphobic Cowboy

You may remember Rick Moranis from popular films such as Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Ghost Busters, Ghost Busters II, Little Shop of Horrors, and Spaceballs. In 1997 Rick sort of disappeared from the movie biz. From Wikipedia Rick Moranis:

In an October 2005 interview with USA Today, Moranis talked about backing away from the movie business:
I pulled out of making movies in about '96 or '97. I'm a single parent [his wife died in 1991 of liver cancer], and I just found that it was too difficult to manage raising my kids and doing the traveling involved in making movies. So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn't miss it.

So Rick gave it all up to be a stay-at-home dad? A man after my own heart. Every stay-at-home dad needs a project to work on, mine is blogging, Rick’s happens to be music. From Wikipedia Rick Moranis:
In 2005, Moranis released an album entitled The Agoraphobic Cowboy, featuring country songs with lyrics which Moranis says follow in the comic tradition of artists like Roger Miller and Jim Stafford. The album was produced by Tony Scherr and is distributed through ArtistShare and his official website. In the Sound & Vision interview done before he decided to release the album, he commented on the origins of some of the songs:
About a year ago [in 2003], out of the blue, I just wrote a bunch of songs. For lack of a better explanation, they’re more country than anything. And I actually demo’ed four or five of them, and I’m not sure at this point what I’m going to do with them — whether I’m going to fold them into a full-length video or a movie. But, boy, I had a good time doing that.

On December 8, 2005, The Agoraphobic Cowboy was announced as a nominee for the 2006 Grammy for Best Comedy Album.

From movie star to stay-at-home dad to Grammy nominated recording artist, wow I’m inspired. Listen to clips from The Agoraphobic Cowboy. Get your own copy of The Agoraphobic Cowboy here.
