I was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1960. My daddy, Alton "Frenchie" Prados was born in Cajun Country in Loreauville, Louisiana in 1935 and was raised on country music. He taught himself to play guitar and he sang and played many Jim Reeves songs. He taught me to play a lil guitar and I learned to sing many of Jim Reeves' songs also. As a lil girl and older we sang together my daddy and I at family get togethers in Louisiana and Texas. My daddy, my first love, recently passed away in June 2012 (he was 76). I still sing and play a lil guitar and my favorite all time singer is Jim Reeves. The first song my daddy taught me to sing with him was "Roses Are Red (My Love)". Thank you for your wonderful website! Thank you Gentleman Jim!
Great country music is a Reeves family tradition.
