Personal Quote:

Contemplating mankind's purpose turns people like me into pseudo-philosophers. I feel that life is simply a matter of one foot in front of the other and down the road we go. If we're lucky we get to enjoy a little dance or song now and then--I've been singing my song to life since I was born. I've learned that love and the blues seem to be partners.


In November of 2007, the Oklahoma born-and-raised singer/songwriter was inducted posthumously, along with his mother, to the Oklahoma Country Music Hall of Fame in Muskogee, Oklahoma. See more »
