That's cool!  Does he perform in Nashville-I went to Nashville once and watched all these back up players at this dinner show-has your dad done any of that?

Don't know. People used to ask me if I was related to Burt Reynolds though because my last name was Reynolds. I was like just because our last names are the same doesn't mean we're related. I do know that my ancestors helped William Wallace when he was fighting the English.
