It first began first by being on tour with his family at the age of only four year’s old and his family and him touring with Hank Williams Sr., Minnie Pearl, & Roy Acuff across America. Traveling the highways across the country in an old 1955 Chrysler limousine. Breathtaking & amazing memories, on the stage in 1955 with Minnie Pearl, Hank Williams Sr. & my family at the Tyler TX.
