Here is the 1st Hint: T***caster

(Something tells me that Shawn hasn't seen this yet... Just a hunch.)

Lloyd

P.S. - I didn't mean to mess up the game. I'll go with a different picture/player if you want. Let me know.

He's easier to recognize when he's standing next to Buck Owens ,
that's Don Rich
