Pat’s love of country music came from Reds Hall-of-Famer Johnny Bench. Back in the early 80s, when Johnny was still playing, the two of them were driving together and Johnny had country music on the radio. Pat’s been a country music fan ever since.
He’s seen George Strait a few times, and was once invited onto The King’s bus, where George acted like a waiter serving up food & drink. Pat has also seen Toby Keith, is good friends with Larry, Steve and Rudy Gatlin, as well as Lee Greenwood.
But Pat says his best-ever concert experience was Don Williams at the Iroquois Outdoor Theatre just south of Louisville. Pat had front row seats and was amazed that Don sounded exactly like he does on the records. Something that’s pretty rare in live performance. Now, Pat gets to play Don Williams and all the legends of country music on Classic Country 105.9 & 106.7
