"My family and I got to see our very
first T.G. concert at the Northeast Arkansas District Fair on
Sept. 25th. I must say, it was by far the best country concert I
have ever been to. We took pictures of T.G. during the concert
and after the show while he was signing autographs for the fans.
While taking pictures during the concert, I took my 7 year old
daughter up with me. She waved to T.G. and he waved back. But
what happened next, was a complete surprise!! He had one of the
security guys bring my daughter up to the stage while he was
singing a song. After he finished, he gave my daughter a kiss on
the cheek!! Needless to say, my daughter told me she wasn't
going to wash that cheek again!!
He was so nice when we met him after
the show. We got to talk to him for a few minutes while he
signed a picture for us and he made a point to talk to my
daughter. You hardly ever see any country artists meet with
their fans and sign autographs after a concert. But T.G. isn't
just any country artist, he's a "class act." I can't
wait to have another T.G. experience!! I'm planning to see him
again when he comes to this area!
T.G. -- if you read this, you keep that
music coming!! We love you!!"

"T.G. is my favorite entertainer. My family and I have been
friends with T.G.
and his family for many years. Back in the early 1980's I first saw him on
television. I loved his voice and his style. We met him in Nebraska. After
meeting him we then met his lovely wife at that time, Diana and his son
Jason. T.G. is so warm and caring, he also has a fantastic sense of humor. It was fun and
we have enjoyed the friendship and have since met his parents.
It is nice to know someone who is in a different
world than mine and yet will let you know he cares when seeing you on the road. He brought
much joy to my son. My parents
were with us at a concert in Hutchinson, Kansas and also met T.G.. They enjoyed his
singing and were thrilled to meet him afterwards at his bus.
Give him my best when you talk to him."

"My name is Kelly, and I just came back from Nashville. My
mother and I saw the concert T.G. Sheppard performed at the Stock Yard.
To say the least, it was more than awesome, and I told him that!!!
I also told him to come to Texas real soon."
