I hail from a long musical family line, including my late first cousin Denny Purcell, owner and mastering engineer of Georgetown Masters Studios, Nash.TN. (his clients included Garth Brooks, Kansas, Willie Nelson, Neil Young); my luthier-to-the-stars cousin Shayne Owens (Patty Loveless, Kip Winger, Thom Bresh); and my grandfather William Cecil Purcell, who played banjo with Red Foley.
