Jimmy Young has been a member of the Texas Playboys for 16 years. He has been playing fiddle for 69 years. He has played lots of honky tonks and ballrooms from here to all over the world.
His latest gig will be for President Bush.
The Playboys have been working on the special date for 6 months now. Monday night they will take the stage along with Asleep at the Wheel.
They will be playing at Bush's Going Away Gala.
Jimmy has played for a first family before. It was for Lady Bird and security was tight. They had to leave their instruments at the place they were playing and Secret Service was high above the stage. Jimmy is a awesome Fiddle player and a great guy.
