[1] Tell me, Booby, what is your earliest musical memory?
Singing "I Saw The Light" on a tree stump at my Grandparents home.

[4] Please finish the sentence: I would love to have been there in musical history when ____? 
Hank Williams made his Opry debut.

[5] Your house is on fire – all your family, children and pets are saved. By the trick of fate you are told you can run in and get one item to carry out, what will you save from the flames?
A hat formerly owned by my buddy, Little Jimmy Dickens. He was like a Grandfather to me.

[6] If you could have dinner with George Washington or George Strait, which one would you chose and why?

My friends.
