    A Jack Smith did play steel guitar with Bill Anderson's band the "po folks" in 1978 or 1979.

    Actually, the band was called "po folks" by at least '78 or '79. I remember doing a few shows with them while with D&S during that time period. Jack Smith was playing steel with them at that point.

    Articles about Jack...

    At the early age of 13 years old, Jack Smith was initiated into the world of Gospel music. Jack's parents were Assembly of God Pastors in California, and they knew that they needed to get Jack involved in something that would keep him clear of the easy traps of the world, especially coming from such an “anything goes” place like California, and music was the thing.

    Jack Smith realized music wouldn't always put food on the table, but knew he could never stray too far from it. As a result, he's managed to grow a small tape-duplicating operation into one of the largest in the Southeast, and he's not done yet.

    This guy has to be worth some money IMO.

    A post by TPS about the business....

    We have owned and operated The Tape and Disc Factory for over 18 years in Nashville, Tennessee. We used to ONLY replicate for the HUGE stars, because of their massive volume.

    According to Wikpedia, Jack played steel guitar with The Happy Goodman Family from 1971-1974.

    I really can't figure out if Jack still owns this company or not. Perhaps his son is running it for him?

    This page supposedly shows current information and the company is still listed with Jack as the President.

    Cities of relatives and friends of Jack Smith. Correction: cities associated with only JS and his daughter-- previous addresses (no friends or relatives)

    Nashville, TN
    Lebanon, TN
    Antioch, TN
    Murfreesboro, TN
    Old Hickory, TN
    Madison, TN
    Mount Juliet, TN
    Scottsdale, AZ
    Phoenix, AZ
    Sun City West, AZ


    Hendersonville, TN
    Nashville, TN
    Goodlettsville, TN
    Murfreesboro, TN
    Brentwood, TN
    Collinsville, IL

    Thanks for bringing my post over Debloree However, BBM I think we should keep Jack's associated cities (these cities are only for where JS and ONE of his daughter's have been known to have lived -- not friends and not any other relatives) separate and this list that I previously compiled was for another purpose and has people he may have never met from TS side

    I would guess from Kamille's link that he moved to TN at 16?

    Yes I believe he moved to TN when he was hired by the Happy Goodman Family in 1971.

    Hi Prof, sorry I misunderstood. I deleted my post and if you want to post any cities you know about where Jack possibly has lived , that would be great.

    I think this counts as background.

    http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP.../08/ng.01.html

    On Nancy Grace, 1/8/2010, Jack says he has not been to the Nashville area in a year and a half.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Is there any recorded criminal activity for JS? Any details on the adoption of H?

    How long was his first marriage?
