'I honestly wish I could have met the man. His songs definitely made a big impression on a lot of people, including myself. I get asked to sing 'The Tennessee Waltz' just about every time I play a gig, but the fact is, it is also a favorite of mine.
I grew up with those songs, and needless to say I am an ole country boy. When I write a song it may not always be country, but country will always be my favorite.' (Tony Pollon/Ladysmith, B.C., Canada)
