Let me start off by saying this is not your ordinary Links Page. It is just for a select few people who have either helped me in my career,
had a great influence on my career or who are just such good people that they deserve it:) J K
Well I don't know where to begin talking about Ernest Tubb, he will always be Mr. Tubb to me. When I first went to Nashville with big dreams, and a big head to match, he was the one who took it upon himself to reach out to help me. His Son Justin and I quickly became friends and Ernest treated us both the same. If he bought Justin a candy bar I got one too:) I was amazed that this superstar had remained ever so humble and willing to help a young guy like me. It left a lasting impression on me as an entertainer and even more importantly as a person.

Ricky Lee Phelps who will always be associated with The Kentucky Headhunters due to their outstanding success. However he is an great singer/songwriter
in his own right. His life story is very similiar to mine as we both started out singing gospel music in church. The big difference is I don't have any Grammys:) He is one of the good guys in the business so if you get a chance to see him live do it. I am King of Cheap and I paid $30 myself to see
him and brother Doug as Brother Phelps. He is also my cousin by marriage :) Checkout his CD; SIGNS OF THE TIMES
