Stage Fright at the Fair

He saw me there, my father's pride and joy, dressed in cowgirl garb and singing aloud to the music.

I was six years old, and Tom T. Hall was playing the Dade County Youth Fair.

He saw me there, my father's pride and joy, dressed in cowgirl garb and singing aloud to the music: "I love little baby ducks, old pickup trucks, and rain...."

He called me up onto the stage to sing with him. I was horrified, and have had stage fright ever since.
