It's been a while, but I was just watching GAC and saw you playing with Leann W. You did great! Actually, I've seen you on several shows in the last few months. Anyway, I just wanted to say Hello and hope you are doing well. If you are ever in Panama City, Just let me know. I would love to have you hang at the Studio.
Be good, and God Bless,
