We recently had T Graham Brown and Shenandoah on back to back nights at our local county fair. I have worked with several different groups but none as easy to get along with as these two were. I believe this all begins with Carrie and the crew at Third Coast Talent. They have always treated me like I was their best customer. Thank you.
