The Kentucky born entertainer he hails from Ebinezer whose Capitol recordings of such Travis penned tunes As "16 tons and smoke smoke smoke that cig Aret have sold in the millions is currently on a three month military club tour that will take him from Japan to Vietnam. Over lunch at Tokyo s new Otani hotel Travis took a pull from a big Glass of milk and Lowed As How the japanese Lan Guage had him buffaloes. I be been Here for two weeks said Merle and i just can t get used to japanese. It sounds Lik Bitin when it comes to being a walking encyclopedia where the past three de Cades of country and West Ern music Are concerned the free Wheeling guitar player probably has few Peers. He has worked with the greats the near greats for 10 years arid in All that time we have never gone anywhere without taking our children. Behave three i have Riever had one night away fro Home except those few when i went to the Hospital Mohave another baby. We have never hired Sitter. Never needed one.

Travis can even recall a radio program he worked years ago that required the services of a warm up comic to Start the audience howling just before air time my father s snoring so she comes in my he d do a great Prat fall grins Merle and we d come room to sleep.

About two times a week i Wake up to Fin my Mother sleeping in the other twin bed. She says she likes to have a break from since he has More than paid his dues inthe business it stands to reason that Travis who also writes a daily column for the Nashville Tennessee an has earned the right to poke a Little fun at his fellow performers if As they say Down Nashville Way he s a mind a lot of the songs they sing grins Merle Are just like soap operas. You be always got a Triangle. The wife loves the husband but he s in love with her Best Friend,., who s in love with the but Many of the songs adds Merle Are so Good that they la actually bring tears to your Nashville where Travis has made his Home for the past year and the near legendary grand old opry also draw some fire from Merle. I m not Knockin the opry says Merle. But today it s just a place where the old timers can still work when they want to and newcomers can get a Little publicity if they appear on As Travis Points out there Are other cities in the states that Are producing country and Western stars who Are even More popular than Many of those closely associated with the Nashville scene. For example Sheb Woolley the Pride of Bakersfield cal.,whose contributions to television s popular Rawhide to series brought him National Fame is just one of Many in the business today who Don t rely on the opry to pay the rent. Everything is changing says Merle. They used to say that country music became popular in the service. That the country boys played it and then the City boys went Back Home an introduced it to their folks. But t make sense. It s just a matter of meet you. On the town. It.
