There’s nothing like walking in a field of flags to bring home the true meaning of Memorial Day. That plus the picture of 94-year old Ed Haley and his wife, Connie, that I received early that morning. Mr. Haley, as you can read in my letter, was the man who inspired my song, “Old Army Hat.” Does he look great or what? I thought you might also like to see the ad my friend, Gus Arrendale, has taken out in the Songwriters Hall of Fame souvenir program that will be distributed to all the attendees at the big event on June 14th. I hope you’ll remember Springer Mountain Farms products when you’re shopping…knowing that Gus and his company are the best friends country music ever had!
