Up till 3 weeks ago I'd never even heard the name, as far as I know he was totally unheard of in the UK. On my latest USA road trip I was in a truck stop in Georgia and they were playing the Garth Brooks song that name-checks him and decided to find out who he is (was). I've now spend hours on Youtube listening to his stuff and can't believe that he wasn't better known. From what I've read he was reasonably big in the USA. The UK is hardly a hotbed of country music but somebody that good really should have gained some recognition over here. A great talent, taken much too soon. This is my favourite song of his so far. Please tell me more about him or recommend some more songs of his.
