by GREG "BLUESDOG" SZALONY. Earl’s trek from Foxworth, Mississippi to Austin, Texas via Houston, California and Tennessee is the stuff of a true musical journeyman’s life story. From local bands he eventually ended up recording with the likes of  Gram Parsons and The Byrds among others. After filling in on a session for Johnny Cash when his regular piano player didn’t show up, Johnny told his guitar player to ask Earl if he would like to tour with Cash’s band. He agreed and was Johnny’s piano player for twenty years. Along the way he soaked up the country, rockabilly and honky-tonk vibes which flavor his music, whether it be an original or cover song.
