In fact, the most recent surgery had corrected his spinal problems and he was able to play again without pain.

As a teenager his facility with the banjo attracted the attention of major stars like Bill Monroe and Jimmy Martin, both of whom hired him to tour with them before he turned 18.

In college, he studied trumpet and marketing at Western Carolina University.Sutton was also a fine guitarist, who worked for many years in the Marc Pruett Band. He had been playing of late alo...Monday, May 01, 2017
