By Caleb Pirtle III. He was just a country boy in jeans and boots, and he carried a guitar, which made him hardly any different from the hundreds of others who walked the streets of Nashville, night after night, hoping to sing a song or write a song or have someone pitch them a song. Their minds were filled with the pain of love ­– lost, found, misguided, handed down, or thrown away, trying to figure out how to make the lines of their poems rhyme with such words as momma, rain and and trucks.
