Slaid Cleaves, Balancing between Hank and Woody

I was hoping for a bit more but thanks for trying. For some reason I thought Slaid might have been a better story teller since he is a great songwriter.

Mr. Mutt...I agree...Slaid apparently prefers to speak mostly through songs...I suppose it could have been the questions, but he is apparently a listener himself when not speaking via song...he didn't expound much...I will chalk that up to humility...

RMUTT & Jim, did you guys read the link to his story about his lone flight to Nashville? I thought that was a story well-told and someone even commented that it was done so well he should be writing prose too. Perhaps he's one of those who isn't so great at expressing himself vocally although I didn't find his answers that lame.
