PARTS OF MY INTERVIEW
WITH JACQUELYN
COOPER ON THE LYNYRD
SKYNYRD PLANE CRASH

On October 20th 1977,
a twin engine plane carrying
the Rock 'N' Roll band Lynyrd
Skynyrd crashed in a remote
section of woods in near
Gillsburg, Mississippi. The plane
ran out of fuel and crashed
before 7:00pm, at the wooded
property.
Six lives were claimed in the crash
including band members,
Ronnie VanZant, Steve Gaines,
Cassie Gaines, Pilot Walter Wiley
McCreary, co-pilot William John
Gray, and Dean Kilpatrick
(the assistant road manager for
the group). Six other members
of the rock band were injured, two
hurt critically and four hospitalized
in stable condition.

We're mentioned in
a NBC News Story
October 20, 2012:
NBC News mentioned our
Tennessee Concerts
website in their news story
"Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash
was 35 years ago".
We received ten of thousands
of hits in the days afterward.
The Lynyrd Skynyrd Southern
Tribute pages were put
together by myself and
Jacquelyn Cooper.
Her grandfather owned the
property that the plane crashed
on. At my request, she went up
into the family attic and dug out
newspaper articles & actual
pictures of the crash scene.
Read my interview with her.
We published it all on my
TennesseeConcerts website
and thousands of people go
to these pages every week.
We've even heard from several
of the survivors of the crash.
Check out these pages if you
get a chance at
www.SouthernTribute.com .
Don't forget to sign the
guestbook. This is the 35th
anniversary. You can also check

Nashville on the Rise:
Sam Grow
Sam Grow, a musician from
Nashville, performs songs
smoldering with passion, from
his guitar to his smoky voice. He
is also a great demonstration of
the power of perseverance
helping one succeed in not only
the music world but the world as a
whole. Growing up in the small
town of Mechanicsville, Maryland,
Grow recalls he and his father
J.R., a lineman, going on
work-related car trips. It was there
that Grow received his first taste
of the music that would resonate
and inspire him to become a
musician. "It was just him and me
and the radio. His favorites were
Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson,
and George Jones; Sam Cooke,
Marvin Gaye and Elvis Presley.
That's what really got me
passionate about music," Grow
said.Music and Grow were a
strong combination at an early
age. One of his very first times
performing happened at the age
of five, when he sang "Amazing
Grace" at his local church. Grow
knew he was performer after the
positive reception he received.
From there, Grow's love for music
only, well, grew. At age 14, he
learned songs by two of his idols:
Elvis Presley ("Unchained
Melody") and Sam Cooke ("Bring
It On Home to Me") on a guitar
lent by a friend. After impressing
his father with his skill and
dedication, he was gifted with his
very own Fender acoustic/electric
guitar. Two years of practicing his
craft led to Grow recording his
very first demo. This helped set
the stage for Grow to bring
together the band that would
keep playing with Grow to this
day, as he has conquered bigger
stages and accumulated a legion
of devoted fans. Although to hear
Grow tell it, he doesn't call them
fans. "I don't call them fans
because they are way more than
that to me," Grow said. "I've built
up an awesome family of
supporters. They can't be
touched." Grow has also built up
another family. His daughter,
Emmy Harlow, was born when he
was 21. Grow says his first
experience holding her was "[his]
wakeup call." "I never wanted to
tell her that I wanted to play music
full time and wasn't doing just that.
I wanted to be able to provide for
her off of my dreams so she
would always know she can do
whatever it is that she loves,"
Grow said. In 2013, Grow moved
to Nashville and started on
collaborations with an impressive
array, including top Nashville
producer Matt McClure, and
country songwriters Kyle
Jacobs and Billy Montana. With
Montana, he authored his first
single, "Is It You." Grow has also
toured quite a bit this month,
playing shows in Delaware,
Indiana, and Maryland. His fan
base continues to grow and
based on Grow's passion, it
might never stop growing.
