Jo, thank you for posting Tom T. Hall! The talent he has for painting a picture when he sings of everyday life is lovely!

That sweet little puppy looks like my Daisy when she was a little pup!

Thanks again,

He and wife Dixie are also huge advocates for animals. Somewhere I have a picture of him holding my daughter Melanie when she was about 4 years old.That song is one of my all time favorites Jo!

Well let me tell you a story! Tom T. Hall lived in my town and got his music career started here in Connersville Indiana. Apparently after the service he came to Connersville to look up an old buddy from the service. He moved in with the Mitchell family and he and his buddy started playing in night clubs in our area. Later, when he became famous he wrote a song called, "Thank you Connersville Indiana" My parents listened to his songs all the time. I can honestly say I grew up on his music. (You can google that song title to read the lyrics.)
Thanks for sharing this video. It brought back some good memories.
