Just imagine moving fifteen hundred miles from your home city, only to find that your marriage has fallen apart. Dreams are shattered; hopes dashed; life has kicked you in the teeth. A few months later you meet someone else, you fall in love and find that you have found your soul mate. You start to get to know each other, and then you make an extraordinary discovery; that you were born, not just in the same city, but in the very same hospital. That is exactly what happened to Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan. They have each spent their working lives as musicians, Misty on piano and keyboards and Jack on keyboards and guitar, and they started working in local clubs during their teens. When they met they were working in nearby clubs in Hollywood, Florida, after becoming aware of each other through seeing each others' names on club billboards and in the local newspaper and a few years later they developed their distinctive harmonies. They have had some incredible experiences during their lifetime, both on the road and off. They have had the thrill of working with most of the biggest names of their era in country music, and they have also worked in places where nobody knew, or cared, who they were. They have had many marvelous adventures and they have also known personal tragedies. They have known both riches and poverty at different stages of their lives. This book gives an account of their lives from their birth and childhood through to the summer of 2012.
