"Tom T. Hall came to Nashville in 1964 with $46 and a guitar. Within months of his arrival, Hall's songs were on the charts. His material has been recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Faron Young, George Jones, Waylon Jennings and dozens of others. Perhaps the most celebrated of these was "Harper Valley PTA" recorded by Jeannie C. Riley which sold over six million records, won a Grammy and a CMA award, crossed over to the pop charts, and inspired a movie and TV series.

In 1967 Hall was signed to Mercury Nashville. Since then he's had over 50 hit singles including 20+ Top Ten's. His simple and poignant style of writing and performing have earned him the title of "the poet laureate of country music." His songs are stories about the real life of everyday people: a daydreaming waitress, a down-and-out musician, a starry-eyed lover, a janitor, a war veteran, an innocent country kid, a hobo, and many others.

His latest project, Homegrown, is true to his legendary talent, with eleven new songs that tell the tales as only Tom T. can tell them, with charming, powerful emotion."

He is very talented. I enjoy lots of his songs. "I Love" and "Ravishing Ruby" are classics. But one I always really enjoyed was "The Ballad of Forty Dollars".
