Charley Crockett will be the first to tell you his story sounds unbelievable. Charley was raised in South Texas by a single mom in a trailer. He spent time in New Orleans' French Quarter before hitchhiking his way to New York City where he busked in the subway and slept in parks. Charley got caught up in a stock fraud scheme with his brother who ended up in prison and they lost their sister to addiction. Charley's had ups and downs - and come out on the other side with a cowboy hat and a hard-earned version of inspiring optimism, along with some amazing songs. And oh yeah, Charley is a distant relative of Davy Crockett (as he says many Texans are).
