He also reflects on his days in Murray State's MFA program and mentions some of the writers in the anthology who also happen to be Murray State MFA graduates.

Colonel J.D. Wilkes hasn't met a medium yet that he hasn't matched. An accomplished musician, illustrator, filmmaker, and author, he's added another book to his C.V.; Barn Dances and Jamborees Across Kentucky. It traces the history, legacy, and the future of the Commonwealth's music as well as the social gatherings that birthed it. Wilkes sat down with Todd Hatton to talk about what prompted him to write the book and what it taught him.
