Kerry talks about working at the Opry and the responsibilities this entails… a really cool story about how he got the gigs working with Jerry Reed, Johnny Cash, and Johnny Mathis… along with a bucket of dimes, the most important lesson he learned about playing music (from Johnny Cash), self-confidence, how he once saved someone’s life, and much more. Cool stuff:
