Butch Thompson of 'Prairie Home' in DL Thursday
From the time he was 6 years old, Butch Thompson has honed his love of the piano. He listened to his father's old records from the 1930s and '40s, watched the Ed Sullivan show, and just knew performing was the thing he'd do.
In seventh grade, Thompson's English teacher asked the class to say what they wanted to do as a career when they got older. When it was Thompson's turn, he told his teacher he wanted to be a piano player in a nightclub.
