Hi Gang: Has it been as hot where you are as it has been in Whisperville? I know…it’s summertime and it’s supposed to be hot, but I’m ready for my favorite season of the year to hurry up and get here and cool things off! I did get a taste of cooler weather when I flew out […]

We’ve got several questions about other artists this month. I’ll group them together and try to satisfy your curiosity. 1) Do you guys ever hear from Tom T. Hall? I believe he lives down in Florida now. No, T. still lives in Tennessee at his Fox Hollow ranch. He has recently written a book of […]
Steve Chapman, left, my guitar player in the early 70’s, passed away in late July. This picture was taken in Ft. Worth, Texas, at the infamous Panther Hall. That’s the late Snuffy Miller playing the drums. I was passing through the Atlanta airport at the same time as my pilot/son, Jamey, the other day, and […]
1) During your performance in Lubbock, Texas, you mentioned the idea behind many of your songs. That was awesome. Would you please explain the idea in “Five Little Fingers?” Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I wrote “Five Little Fingers” in 1964 when my first daughter, Terri, was three years old. Her mother and […]

Hi Folks: I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July and that you’re ready to put ye olde noses back to ye olde grindstones! It rained in Nashville over the holiday, so I didn’t try to get my boat out on the lake like I had hoped to do. Just hung around […]
So many of you continue to ask about my grandson, Gabe, and how things are progressing in his battle with cancer. I received this letter from his mom, Beth, while I was on vacation, and I want to share it with you.
Thank you SO much for your continued prayers and concerns. Please don’t stop now!
June 1, 2017 Hi Gang: And greetings from Music City…or is it Hockey Town?…U.S.A. All I know is with the annual CMA Music Fest right around the corner and our Nashville Predators hockey team playing in the Stanley Cup finals, I’d hate to be trying to book a hotel room in town right about now. This place is crazy! […]
1) I live just outside Milwaukee, and we have a station that claims it plays country, but they never play you or some of the older singers. I really enjoy the OLD country music, but the only way to get it is to pay for Sirius, and I don’t spend enough time in my car for […]
I’m always saying that I have the best and most loyal fans and friends in the world. These pictures are proof. In the first one, a fan is relaxing atop my plaque inside Walk Of Fame park in downtown Nashville. In the second, a Texas fan decorated his guitar in Bill Anderson fashion, and in […]
