So, last weekend I told you about the wonderful time I had in Memphis for St. Jude Country Cares.  While by day, this event is filled with visits to the hospital, and seminars for learning how to efficiently run our Radiothon, night time can be quite the mixed bag, especially when radio DJ's and country artists hit the legendary Beale St.

Let me set the scene:

I am at Flynn's (formerly Superior) on Beale St., my favorite place to let loose and sing some karaoke while in Memphis.  Into the bar walks members of Cadillac Three, and one half of new duo, American Young, Jon Stone.

Having interviewed Jon before, I say 'How's it going?"

Jon says, "Good, except my record people keep trying to get me to sing, and I don't want to."

I reply, "I'm singing, let's duet."

Jon says, "If you'll sing with me, I'm in!"

I ask, "What are we singing?"

He says, "Meatloaf!"

I say, "Done and done!"

Then this

Hope you enjoyed that comic relief and now enjoy some real great music from Jon as part of American Young.
