Prior to any connections and experience with or in Nashville, I grew up in the Bayou State…Louisiana. All throughout Jr. High School, High School, & College, I played Top 40 Rock ‘n Roll; starting in ‘garage bands’ in Jr. High…then playing small, local gigs while in High School (birthday parties, small venue dances, music festivals, store openings, and just about anywhere we could ‘set up and play’). During my later High School years and all throughout my College years, I played in bands ‘regionally’ and started playing larger clubs, venues, & events.
So….for this post….here is a bit of ‘Pre-Nashville Days: The Louisiana Connections’ factual trivia. Country Music Superstar, Tim McGraw, and I were on the same, small, independent, Louisiana record label in the mid 1980’s. Yep…it’s true.
Stay tuned. I have many more bits of Pre-Nashville Days stories and trivia…….The Louisiana Connections; The U.K. Connections; & The Australian Connections…….all prior experiences to my Nashville experiences.
Ciao for now! Your pal,
