Slaughter says it’s always a special treat to come back to Tupelo.
“They key to this is to have fun, not think too hard about anything, that’s what I like to do, tonight we’re going to do a couple of hours and just go until they boo me off the stage, we’re going to go through all the music from the early days to the very end,” Slaughter said.
