Message:  For many years Darrell Royal & Willie put on a golf tournement/music show/drunk here at The Woodlands, where I live. I think Roy & Susan W have attended it also. Each night there would be a dinner & show, then all would retire to a few hotel rooms where good old guitar pulls would happen. It would be a standard hotel room with maybe 30 people in it. It might contain Willie, Haggard, Gatlin, Ray Price, Sonny Throckmorton, Mickey & others. The guitar would be passed around the room & each would sing a couple of their songs. It was almost like a funny game of musical chairs, because nobody wanted to sit behind Mickey...I mean nobody wanted to follow him in a guitar pull, and these were the biggest stars of country music at the time.
