Many young men and women come from all over the country to “music city” in order to pursue their dreams of making it big in country music. Unfortunately very few ever realize their dreams and many end up returning home to pursue different dreams. Luckily for us, three such men are not only on their way to realizing those big dreams but they are doing so while raising their families and putting down roots here in Wilson County.
