So…where does the Sammy Kershaw story go from here? When asked about the future, he didn’t hesitate. “Number one, you hope for a big album,” he says. “I love to play, and do live shows. If you have a big album and a couple of hit records, you get booked a lot more---which is fine with me and my boys because that’s what we love to do---to play live, that’s what we’re all about. I’ve been a whole lot of places with my music. I don’t know where else I could go. I’d love to have an award or two, or nominations,” he admits, though saying that touching lives with his music is far more important. “But, that’s not something I have to have. I just would like people to know that I haven’t gone anywhere, and I’m still making new music, and I’m still singing the truth.”
