He was born on a farm outside of Shreveport, Louisiana, the 7th son in a family of 19 brothers and sisters. The family moved to a farm near Bastrop in the northeast corner of the state, where they picked cotton, raised vegetables, and hunted and fished for food. Somewhere in his early twenties he boarded a bus to Denver. Worked 3 jobs, one was playing his guitar around town, until he found "the Four Seasons" country and western bar and the rest is history.</p> <p>RSVP is required as seating is limited. Donations are encouraged.</p> 3091 California St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
