Lance Stinson hails from Lumber City, a South Georgia town with a little more than a thousand people. Childhood was a character-building mix of rural life and hard work. Lance and his four older brothers grew up on his parents’ farm.
His first musical memories came through the speakers of his dad’s ’79 Ford pickup. The eight-track gave him a good dose of Keith Whitley, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty and Merle Haggard, whose “Rainbow Stew” remains a favorite.
“Dad was a big Hank Sr. fan,” he says, “and my older brothers liked Hank Jr., so I picked up a love for both. My brothers were also fans of a lot of the ’80s rockers like Def Leppard and Poison, and I wound up with a little of that in the mix too.” … More LUMBER CITY GEORGIA MUSICIAN Lance Stinson, Mar 17 – Lance Stinson St. Patrick’s Day on Riverfront – Savannah, GA
