Read this in the Tennessean. Great piece.


In 1954, he played a self-penned song called “Aunt Meg’s Wooden Leg” for Atlanta publisher and radio host Bill Lowery, who began managing and booking the young man. A 30-day tour opening shows for Ernest Tubb and the Texas Troubadours ensued, and the experience was enough to convince Mr. Reed that high school was of little use to him.


“I knew what I was going to spend my life doing,” he later said. “Nothing else made any sense. Nothing else made any difference.”


Alligator bait in the Loooosiana Bayoooooooo!


Named after a man of the cloth. Called him Amos Moses.

When I click on the underlined article, I hear clicking and the article shows up for one second or so and then disappears, leaving the photo of Burt Reynolds and Jerry clean and clear. I don't remember having that happen before. The photo is pretty amusing by itself.
