His name is John W. Stone. He opened for Craig Morgan a few years back at the Appalachian Fair in Gray, Tenn. I thought at that time that we would be seeing a lot of John. But it just hasn’t happened for him yet. More often than not, you can find him at Tootsie’s in Nashville.
In addition to Tootsie’s, John also has some shows scheduled at Boondocks in Guntersville, Ala., Revolutions in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and a few in Indiana, Mississippi and Iowa.
John had a song on his first CD called “Do the Math,” which I think is about my favorite JWS song. He also had one about Nascar, which the Northeast Tennessee audience enjoyed, being this close to Bristol.
John was one of the people who auditioned for the very first season of Nashville Star. (The year Buddy Jewell won). He didn’t make the cut, and didn’t get on television – but he’s still a good entertainer, and a very nice person. If you ever get the chance to stop in at Tootsie’s in Nashville, be on the look out for JW.
And, in case you didn’t know – Nashville Star will be on NBC beginning in June – and will be hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus.
Talk to you real soon!
