Throwback Thursday - Tom T. Hall

Here's another throwback courtesy of my friend JNJ!

They call him "The Storyteller." And that he is. Tom T. Hall has been writing and singing songs since the early '60s. Not only did he have a slew of top 10 and #1 hits, he had so many songs thathe wrote made famous by other artists, such as "Harper Velley PTA" by Jeannie C. Riley, "Little Bitty" by Alan Jackson, and many others. Born in Kentucky in 1936, he is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and a noted author.

It was hard to pick just one or two videos, so I had to choose four. And all of them will give you a picture into what is truly important in life, or a least what makes it a lot more fun! And if you want to know what happened at Stubbs in Lubbock one night when Tom T. and Joe Ely got to playing pool, listen to a song called "The Great East Broadway Onion Championship of 1978." Click here to read the story about this song.

Listen, Love, Enjoy!
