Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?

Stevie Nicks and Sade because their voices are epic. They are legendary in their on rite and their styles are both timeless.

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?

Always make sure you know what the heck is going on! Know your business and don’t let anyone BS you, but most importantly push as hard as possible and let nothing sway you from your dreams and goals.

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?

I wish I would have listened more to my brother and my dad when it came to being more involved in the business aspect of things in the past instead of just counting on everyone else to handle all the business.

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?

Playing overseas for the first time in the UK for the Download Festival was amazing and we had a blast. I remember feeling sick to my stomach with nervousness on seeing just how massive the crowd was. It was an intense epic moment in time.
Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs? Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?

I collect Walt Disney’s Goofy items and I am a old school horror movie fanatic.

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

It would be nice if the music scene had more camaraderie. It seems like nowadays everyone is only out for themselves and that kinda blows. There are so many great bands and musicians out there to get to know and play with but I notice the scene is very “clicky”.

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?

One could say these shows have over saturated the industry but it’s also helped a lot of people get their voice heard.

What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads? 

It helps and it hurts. I think it has pushed the music industry in the direction that it’s going.

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear.

Jason is a human cyborg, seriously he’s part robot!! He’s so strong and can take a lot..more than the average human. Darren and I were both born with 12 fingers. Both of us had them cut when we were babies, but we still have the little bump on the side of our hands. We’re a band of mutants lol

Hypothetical situation. You’re on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the survivors… Which one and why?

Probably Russell Johnson’s character The Professor, because he’s more my type and he just comes off so debonair.

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it?

I was raised on vinyl. My mother has a huge collection of old records she would play all the time when I was a kid. I definitely have an appreciation for the look and the sound of vinyl.

You’re marooned on an island with Justin Bieber. Do you choke him out the first night in his sleep or what?

I don’t know Justin Bieber like that so I couldn’t say.

What is your opinion of Miley Cyrus?

I actually don’t have an opinion on Miley Cyrus, because I don’t know her personally. I just try to stay in my own lane and not focus on what others are doing.

Which would you rather hear in concert? Lip synching or real vocals?

Real vocals! I can listen to a record from the comfort of my home anytime. If I go out to see a show, I want to see a real show.

Who, or what, is the next big thing?

I hope it’s us 🙂

One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…

I need Stevie Nicks/ Fleetwood Mac in my life, because their music has influenced me so much.

Confession time. Share a secret about yourself.

I love people but yet I’m terrified of them..

Favorite movie of all time and why.

Anything with Vincent Price or Boris Karloff.

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

I want to thank my Lord & Savior Christ Jesus and all our loyal supporters who continue to support us through the good and bad. We love you!!!!! Xoxo

George Jones Donated 30, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Funeral plots for penniless Artists who couldn’t afford a grave. Seems he did this several years ago and that Johnny Paycheck was one of the great artists’ that benefited from the kindness of George. God Bless you George for your gracious and kindness toward your fellow man.



George Jones was buried Thursday afternoon at Woodlawn Cemetery near Thompson Lane, but there will be plenty of other musicians right there with him – thanks to a decision Jones made several years ago.

“Generous George Jones” was not one of his many nicknames, but it was the rock-solid truth.

As Jones was taken from the Opry House one last time, it’s impossible not to remark on one of his most private, generous acts that many of his close friends never knew about.

Jones had purchased 30 cemetery plots at Woodlawn Cemetery to give to artists who die penniless.

“That’s what a lot of people don’t know. They don’t know that side of him,” said former band member Rod Gaddis.

“Unbelievable. I love George Jones like you wouldn’t believe,” said former band member James Holly.

Grand Ole Opry member Johnny Paycheck is also buried at Woodlawn Cemetery – one of Jones’ friends is now a neighbor thanks to Jones’ generosity.

Dave Fowler bio

Dave knew from a very young age that he wanted to be a bass player. Growing up and playing with musicians like Warren Haynes in Western North Carolina helped Dave understand the importance of being a bass player and the role a bassist must play to be in successful bands.

Dave attributes much of his seat of the pants education by playing with older more experienced player as a teenager and always listening to what was going on around him…of course being able to work with names like Dolly Parton, Cinderella, Billy Ray Cyrus, Tracy Lawrence, Lorrie Morgan, Dottie West, Edwin McCain, legendary producer Bill Szymczyk (The Eagles) and many others require just as much in the “people skills” area as the playing side of things. That is what you will be able to learn @ Dave’s clinics for Spector basses.He will give you a information on how to play your instrument and make a living doing it. Dave’s entire approach is seat of the pants hardcore learning how to do it the hard way…and you can cash in on his experience by attending his clinic at ABBA’S MUSIC, 7 PM THURSDAY NOV. 15. Dave has a wealth of information in addition to his playing skills–topics covered will be informational to all players, keyboardist, guitarist and singers as well as bass players. Information such as the Nasville numbering system, how to make a living in the music business, studio production, session work, and Dave will answer any questions you might have.

There is no cost to attend this special event, seating is limited so come early to get the best seating.
