Years ago, the legendary steel guitar player Don Helms said to me, “Hoss, if you start liking that hand-tooled leather stuff, all of a sudden everything you see needs it.” Helms went on to say, “I went to see the Statue of Liberty with Hank Williams when we played New York City one time. We were standing there looking at it and I told Hank, ‘Wouldn’t it be pretty if the whole base of that thing was covered in leather and hand-tooled like a western saddle?’
Well, if it is ever decided that such a thing is to happen, I know exactly who should be called. His name is Terry Lankford.
