Joe Russo on The Valor
This was the next to the last performance Joe did. We did a B2B and he was Elvis in the second one. It didn't go as well, and he wasn't that happy with it. He has won Garth several times in the past.
Hope you enjoy.
Luanne, Jim and Josh

Luanne, Joe lives on!!
Cruised more times than I can remember.
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
