So here’s a little slice of Wills, a little slice of Elvis, a dose of rock and roll, and a respectful country tip of the hat to Johnny, all in the tremolo baritone of one Mitch Jacobs from Houston, Texas—but make no mistake, he’s his own man, not an imitator.
“I could really Cash it up if I wanted to. All I really have to do is put a little more quiver in my voice. If I try not to sound like Johnny, all I do is not quiver. And it’s me. Does that make sense?” Jacobs asks with a laugh. “But if somebody wants to request ‘Ring of Fire’ and write it on the back of a fifty and send it to the stage, I’ll quiver for ‘em all night!”
