7) What do you like to do in your spare time?
“I have two children.”
8) Favorite place to hang or thing to do in Nashville?

9) What’s next for you?
“I’m thinking about installing a footprint gas pedal in my 89 Caprice classic station wagon…I’ll prob get to that on one of my days off in the next couple weeks.”
