Guthrie, OK.  I looked over your website and I sure do like it.  I noticed your family is a Gospel Grass Band.  The band I play in is a Gospel Grass Band also.  (Graystone Bluegrass Revival from Oklahoma)  I must tell you that I was blessed to hear the family sing and play their instruments.  I hope our paths cross again soon."
