It is difficult to describe the impact Sleepy LaBeef had on my life. I was 21 years old when I moved to Nashville in October 1977. After just a few weeks, it became apparent to me that despite my own confidence in my musical skills, I was not going to immediately rise to the top of the heap, and I needed a gig badly. I made up a few homemade business cards, and posted them in all the music stores I could find, hoping to land some kind of job that would start the proverbial ball rolling.
