Terry Johnson of ‘The Swamp Drivers’ Shares Touching Story of Losing His Mom
When Terry Johnson took the stage with his band, 'The Swamp Drivers,' at the Stanley to open for The Marshall Tucker Band there was only one person on his mind. He had received a call from Hospice to let him know that his mother Wanda's health was failing and she only had a few more days. Early Monday morning Terry's mom passed away, but he was right there with her and played her to sleep.
Johnson says, "I'm not going to lie, it was hard to set my feeling aside to do the show." He did in fact play the opening gig of his band's career and you have to believe he did it for her. When his mother finally passed away he shared this beautiful post on his Facebook page describing their relationship and her final moments.
Please keep Terry and his entire family in your thoughts and prayers. Our condolences and thank you for sharing this sad but beautiful story.
