country of western Kentucky, Alan grew up steeped in the sounds of
classic country, gospel, and bluegrass music. He performed in several
bands in his home town of Madisonville, Kentucky before moving to Texas
in 1983, where he would earn MBA and law degrees at SMU. Alan is the
founder and President of the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation,
a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the preservation and
promotion of bluegrass music in America. The Foundation produced and
distributed Fanning the Fire, an award-winning short documentary film that has screened in more than 20 film festivals across the United States, in 2011.
