    Tipper,
    It’s nice to know the Blind Pig Bunch is sharing part of their Memorial Day Weekend with a concert at the Theater in Bryson City this evening. I probably got folks buried at Lauada Cemetery and it makes me proud that my friends are donating their time for the upkeep of Lauada Cemetery. …Ken

    A “Pretty Little Girl With A Red Dress On” is surely nice but gets monotonous after a time. Why not put her in a joe sack for a while?
    Trevor Stuart played – Pretty Little Girl With A Red Dress On! Ever heered of him?

    Tipper,
    “Wwhhaaaat”!!
    Could they have meant “Gimme That Girl” by Joe Nichols?
    or “Pretty Little Girl from North Carolina”?
    Whatever the title of the song, I’m sure they’ll sing it great?
    Thanks Tipper,

    I’m confused, does he want her with the joe sack on or the pretty girl with the joe sack on? What’s a joe sack?
