Another Cowboy Rides Away

Our friend, Johnny B. Nelson rode off into his sunset today. I will miss him. I remember the nights that I would be playing on the stage at the Lariat and he would be 'sound asleep' leaning on the rail at the front of the stage, standing straight up and I watched in amazement at how he could somehow maintain to not fall over and land 'face down' on the "Louie Heckert Dance Floor".... but he never did! How he managed that trick, I'll never know. He was a good soul and I know he loved his sons dearly and talked of them often. "Happy Trails", my friend
