Wes is an awesome! I have seen him play out many times. What a joy it is to watch and hear him play. Congrats, Wes on being chosen. You are a great choice to represent Columbus. Good luck!

Thank you, Mrs C, for your endless support and dedication to Wes while he's at school. That goes for the other team leaders, too. Eric, it means the world to Wes (and me, too) to see your face in the crowd cheering him on. We are truly blessed to have you in our circle of friends :-)l

Hey Wes, when I was about your age someone gave me an old beat up acoustic with no strings. With no spare money, my Dad bought home some piano wire from work. That's what he called it anyway. Somehow I managed to get it strung but it wouldn't tune just real good but I sure was one happy boy. Now I have a black Telecaster, Gibson White Dove, a "Taco" and,....I still have that old beat up thing. I'm 66 and maybe we can pick sometime but I sure do admire you and what you've done so far. The best to ya partner!

Wesley, I work at your old elementary school Alum Creek in the kitchen. I wanted you to know we all saw this article and listened to your utube site and we are so proud of you. Your videos are amazing and I hope your incredible talent takes you far! God bless you and your family - can't wait to buy your album one day! Good luck in Memphis!
