    Three of the five members of Restless Heart have Oklahoma ties, including my cousin.
    Paul Gregg - Altus
    Greg Jennings - Nicoma Park
    Dave Innis - Bartlesville

    Another cousin Danny Gregg (brother of Paul) was a co-host on the TNN show Opryland On Stage and in the group that eventually became Diamond Rio. Paul was in DR for a short time.

    Quite a number of artists and behind the scenes people in the Nashville music business have Oklahoma ties.
