This is a GREAT story, told by the guy that wrote Kenny Chesney's "Happy Does"...13 years after he met his hero!
Greylan James says:
Imagine that Kenny Chesney is your childhood hero.
You come from the same town as he does, you dressed up as him for Halloween, and you even got to meet him when you were 11. During that time with Kenny, you share what a huge fan you are, and that you want to be like him. He tells you to stay in school and learn how to write songs. You do, and 13 years later you get to hear Kenny singing a song that you wrote on the radio.
Check out his IG post to see what he says today about how that meeting and Kenny's advise changed his life.
Here's an interview Greylan did back in 2012.
