  1. If
    you could have dinner with George Strait or George Washington,
    which would it be and why?

    “That’s another hard one. But I going to say George Strait. Not

    are your heroes or role models musically? “
    the professional level; Garth Brooks. He is my biggest influence.
    Watching him as I was growing up is the reason I am doing music

    man and as a father wanting to put his kids first. I am really glad
    he coming back to full time in the music.”
  1. Which
    song or album are you listening to the most right now?

    “A bunch of work CD’s and a bunch of demos, fortunately because

    playing “music” for fun.”
  1. If
    you only have one CD for seven days on a deserted island, what
