2015 marks my 25th Anniversary making a living as an entertainer on the lone prai-ree where the coyotes howl, etc. I’ve been very lucky. People ask me what I do, I tell ’em I drive. So far, I’ve logged 783,4523 miles; 4,037 shows; 8,045 jokes that no one laughed at (and, luckily; 24,000 they did); a gazillion notes plucked; 2 bazillion hours of humbling practice; and more songs sung than you can shake a sticky note at.
Why do you do it? For the money, of course. But I also love performing.
What’s the secret to your success? I never gave up my day job. Really most of what I do is the business of the entertainment business. If I didn’t do that I couldn’t do the fun stuff.
