William H. Bass-
William H. Bass was born in the mountains of Mayberry North Carolina.
He is the cousin of the famous Earnest T. Bass the best rock thrower
in the county. William’s Ma and Pa wanted a better life for him so the
raised him in the mountains of Booger Hollow Georgia. (It didn’t work
as they planed) William gave up moon shining (The Sheriff might have
influenced the decision) and was educated in the foot hills of Georgia and
became a certified custodian at the age of thirty. William returned back
to Booger Hollow where he met a young mountain girl by the name of
Millie. William has been trying to court his sweet Millie ever since he met
her by trying to write her sweet love songs that might make a civilized girl
run the other way. You never know what William H. Bass has in store for
the Outpost Opry.
