I was born in Muhlenburg County in Western Kentucky.
When I was 5 daddy's brother got him a job in the coal mines in West Virginia I loved that song by John Prine "Daddy take me back to Muhlenburg County." Daddy did just that during miners vacation
in West Virginia to visit friends and relatives. Mama went to school with Merle Travis who
wrote "16 Tons" that Tenn. Ernie Ford made popular. In 1956, when I was 16, daddy took
me back to Muhlenburg County for a big celebration for Merle Travis. During the celebration
daddy and I were listening to two boys on stage playing guitar and singing. I said, "Those
boys are pretty good." Daddy responded, "That's Ike Everly's boys." Wasn't much longer
after that celebration that The Everly Brothers were known worldwide. I'm now a retired university professor and school psychologist living in Fort Pierce, Florida. After we left Kentucky and moved to
West Virginia mama, daddy, and I listened to every Kentucky Wildcat game on WHAS, Louisville. When the reception was bad daddy would put me in the car and drive atop Buttermilk Hill near Fairmont, W.Va to get better reception. Love Kentucky. Go Hilltoppers!
