For those here who've heard of him, what are ya'll's thoughts???
I've never heard of him, but am I right in assuming his double bass chops are awesome? Where in Brad Paisley's music do you hear double bass? I think it's great when I see talented youngsters playing their butts off, but when I see a talented youngster laying it down for Mustang Sally, then I'll be impressed.

It's funny how I've never seen a young kid doing a simple Steve Gadd groove for three minutes without wavering, creating a good bed for the band and the singer to perform on top of. Anybody have any links for that out there? I mean, would it be creepy to see a 6-year-old laying down a groove like Alan Jackson Jr.? Feeling every beat like it's his last, at the age of six?
