Congratulations, Will!

Will Kimbrough and I went to survived high school together in Mobile during the late 1970's.  Even then, Will was a gifted guitarist and I can't tell you how many times I heard Will and the Henry Guyen Band play clubs and bars around the Gulf Coast.  His rendition of the Allman Brothers' Blue Sky made Dickie Betts blush.  Literally.

Will has aged much better than I have, despite the fact that he's a RAWK STAR and stuff.

In 2004, Will won Americana Music Association’s Instrumentalist of the Year award.  He's up for it again, this year.

Congratulations, Will.  I'll be pulling for you and I hope to see you again at Mardi Gras.
