I first learned of Sam when my son started playing a Howlin' At The Moon CD every time we visited him at ASU in Boone, NC. Little did I know then how precious that time would become. He died just a month after graduating. A few years later, my husband & I actually met Sam at an outdoor concert in Pigeon Forge, TN. When I told him how I came to know & love his music, he was most sympathetic & gracious to us. Sam Bush has the greatest talent & heart for music, and for soothing hurting souls.
