I Entered this VIDEO, As a semi Dedication to a very close friend of mine KEVIN SKINNER, of America's Got Talent, He & I Have, played every HONKY TONK, DIVE & Haul Closet from here to TIM-BUCK-TWO, lol.. We use to go to Nashville together alot to Songwriters nights, We tryed hard to get our songs heard, We had alot of Big Names approach us, but at the time we were younger & it seemed , like it took everything we had, money wise, and finding a dependable car or truck to get us there. lol, Every time we'd get an extra 20 dollars or so, we would strike out to to MUSIC CITY, This day & time with the gas prices, lol, 20 bucks would'nt get us out of Graves County, lol,, but for real. "BLUES MAN", Is a Song I Sang alot when me & Kevin played at all those places. It kinda fits me, back then. And It just fits, the Travling Musician period. Written by HANK JR. It is an Awesome Ballad, I Know the VID, Is VERY ROUGH... But If I Make it in the top, What is it? 3..

you have a good voice but need to stop smoking so the quality of your voice comes thru better. too many throat clearings doesnt give the full effect of the song,good guitar playing,
