Together with mom and dad, Elaine and her 7 brothers and sisters all shared a great love for music. All could sing and several could also write songs and play musical instruments.

That noise blended into some pretty good music .Elaines sister Dorothy was referred to as the young Kitty Wells and older sister Fran was labeled as female Marty Robbins. Brother Johnny sounded like Merle Haggard. Brother Jimmy was a mean hot harmonica player and could sing. Ron a guitar player/singer. Herby was a drummer/singer.
