I play an SD–10 PSG and I'd be happy to find a ‘Traditional~Country’ gig in the Nashville area, other than Downtown! To much hassle getting around down there! Something within about a 30-mi. radius of Nashville. I have 48-yrs. experience at PSG and 4-yrs. at the Opry with Billy Walker and Stonewall Jackson. And also extensive road experience with various artists and bands. FT8Custom@webtv.net or Ph: (615) 227–3256

The one and only, I hope! E-mail me and tell me more! My stint turned out a little better than some. I eventually got all my money! Just pop on my e-mail above and we'll talk!

I'm going up to the top and start over! This is the only place I ever get a chance to be first and on top, at the same time!

Gary;
I’d consider the Empire~Deal, however; I did manage to get on the player’s list at our n.t.s.g.a. Oct. 1st. All~Day Super Jam, so; I guess it will have to wait! I even managed to place 1st. on the list, to open the show at 11 am!
Thanks,

Big John is an excellent dedicated player who plays Classic Country Steel Guitar as well as anyone. He's a good guy too, and he would be an asset to any Country band.

If he lived around here, I'd hire him myself!

Got a nibble, but; so far it only tickles, although it does sound promising!

Funny, I don't get any replies, but; I do keep dropping off the page! I'd almost rather drop off a stage somewhere, if it's not too high!

John, maybe you should move to Myrtle Beach SC. That's where the gigs are!
