Local drummer made it big in Nashville
Every now and then there comes a moment to brag about former Jacksonians. This is one of those times. There are some former Northsiders who have really made it big. One I want to mention right now is George Lawrence.
He was a "PK," preacher's kid, who grew up in Jackson during junior high and high school - a graduate of Murrah in the ’70s. He is a tremendously talented drummer. During high school he was in the Royal American Showmen.
