    I've heard Gladys in an interview speaking...is that the one you are talking about Jess? I agree, she had a lovely voice.

    My wifes father was also a steel guitarist for almost 50 years-he also taught my wife a few chords and she could play-slightly.
    He played in bands all his life-and played with Loretta Lynn, Floyd Cramer, Tommy Cash at different points in his life. In the 60s he just mainly played with local country bands and worked for the railroad for his regular job.
    Work in Progress!

    Thank you for sharing your memories, Diane. Excuse me for draggin' on about this... Like I said I'm just real curious - I'm sure many were the same way when they were my age!

    Vester wasn't singing but like all the Presley's he has a beautiful speaking voice and I'm sure they all could sing beautifully...a talented family undiscovered except for Elvis.
