Before I went to Houston last spring to visit my mother, I mentioned to myself, “I can’t go to Texas without a cowboy hat!” So I went to a western wear store in Aurora, Ill., and purchased a stetson. When I got off the aircraft in Houston, an airport worker asked me, “You’re not from here are you, sir?” I stated, “No, why do you ask?” She replied, “Because there’s one rule: you can use cowboy boots without a hat, but you can not use a stetson without the boots.” She offered me the name of a shop [and] I went directly from the airport and bought boots. When I got back to Chicago, I presently had a pickup. And after getting the hat and boots, I figured, “Well, heck! I’m midway there!” I made use of karaoke tracks to make my Garth Brooks and Josh Turner parody videos.
