When Waylon Fingers met Billy Strings
I was fortunate enough to catch Billy, walking down the hallway. He’s the most humble and kind human being I have ever met. I told him how I’ve been following him since I’ve been clean and that when I saw him flat picking the guitar. I said I want to play like that. He said that that was effing awesome I couldn’t believe it, you don’t get to meet your flat picking idol every day

"I share my life experiences through the music." "If I can do it!" "You can do it trust me I was bad off, if you want something bad enough you will make the change!"
