But, I digress! While all the aforementioned characters and their wives have crossed over Jordan now, I still like to return to Jackson. A couple of favorite places to go are Clark Shaw's Old Country Store and Steve Patterson's Music Highway Crossroads. A lot, and I mean A LOT, of bluegrass and old-time music happens around there every Thursday afternoon and evening. The history of Casey Jones and railroading in West Tennessee is in the very wood and bricks of those stores at I-40 Exit 80A.
Here are some of the great folks and their music which I encountered on a recent trip back to Jackson-Madison County, Tennessee.

|Steve, Jeff, the gang, and Tony visiting from Alaska|
|Play it sweet there, Mama!|
|We'd like a chocolate soda and two straws, please!|
|Marilyn, Bobby, Coley and the gang at the Old Country Store|
|Betcha me and my big brother here can out-pick ya!|
We're gonna snowball Jackson (even in this heat!)...Look out Jackson town! That's what we like about the South! Pick away, y'all!
