Message:  Good question Meeks.

I knew Sam for almost 40 years and I never asked her why she took "Sammi" for a professional name.
My guess would be that it had a better ring that Jewel Faye. I'm sure that "X" or Waylon might know.

Waylon has been offered a co-staring role in a new movie, in fact, he has three movie deals on the table right now. He's at Mary Frank Andrews home right now and plans to stay there until she has her operation on Monday and is able to care for herself when she comes home.

I'm sure that I'll be talking to him and "X" tomorrow and we'll see if either one of them knows the answer to that question.

By the way, "Crazy...The Hank Garland Story", staring Waylon Payne is set for release the last week in this month. The initial reviews by the test audences and critics have rated it with 7 1/2 stars out of a possible 10!
