At a young age, he travelled North America with his family's Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs, sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country. (Saturdays, 12.05pm-1pm, Facebook: @nebraskamike)
