Ben Hall: I'll See You In My Dreams

The first time Charlie Louvin discovered the young, Merle Travis-style guitarist Ben Hall playing, he asked, "When can you go to work with me?" When Hall replied that he couldn't just yet, as he was studying music at Belmont University, the elder statesman was none too pleased to be turned down, huffing, "You don't need to be in school, you are meant to be playing that guitar."
