I was born into music…good music. I have my Dad to thank for that. He is an old “honky-tonker” from the 50’s that idolized Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, Jimmie Rodgers, Marty Robbins, etc. And I, being a little kid, idolized my dad….thinking he was the greatest thing I had ever heard. He had fronted Country bands in the 50’s and 60’s, but had quit by the time I was 2 or 3. My Mom and Dad were married young and I was the youngest of 3 kids. I grew up in Benson, Illinois, population 400, in an old 2 story farmhouse 1 ½ miles out of town.
