“I’m a country boy.  There’s nothin’ about me that ain’t.  I’ve entertained crowds of 80,000 people working stadiums, festivals, fairs and beer joints.  Worked with my hands, built a family, ran 3 bars and sang in way too many so yes, I know somethin’ about making my audience happy.  And yes, I talk to God…”  JC.
