15 Questions with Harley Myles
Hometown : Knoxville, Tennessee...At the foothills of the Smokey Mountains!!! You gotta admit, my teeth are impressive for a real live hillbilly.
Birth Date : June 3rd, 1978
Sign : Yield
Marital Status : Happily married to Ashley since 2003
Kids : One beautiful little girl, born in 2006
Pets : Two vicious Weiner Dogs named Willie and Waylon
Favorite Artists and Albums : My tastes are pretty eclectic. So I'm gonna leave that one alone. It would take a lot of explaining. Let's just say I love music.
First Concert Attended : David Allan Coe at "The Cotton Eyed Joe" in Knoxville. I was fifteen, on house arrest, got in using my older cousin's I.D., and above all else...Went with my dad, on a school night!!!! Thanks Dad!!! Definitely not the kind of thing you ever forget. I may have been to others before that, but I've blocked out a lot of my childhood, so who the hell knows?? The DAC show rocked.
Favorite Actors : Jack Nicholson, Edward Norton, Jim Carrey, & Phillip Seymour Hoffman, if I had to pick only a few.
Favorite movies : Dumb & Dumber, Fight Club, American Beauty, The World According to Garp...This list could go on and on. The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know? are both highly inspirational movies I would recommend to anyone too.
Favorite TV Show : The 700 Club. That Pat Robertson's a great actor!!! Wait...You mean, he's being serious????
Favorite Books.Authors : Anything by Jack Kerouac or Hunter S. Thompson is cool. Jack Handy is my favorite comedy writer. And David Icke is my favorite controversial researcher and author.
Favorite Sports Team : I bleed Orange!!!! Not burnt Orange though!!! I'm a huge University of Tennessee Volunteers Football fan. The real U.T. !!! Honestly, huge is an understatement. I'm one of these freaks that subscibe to recruiting magazines and websites, and pretend that it's college football season all year long. I'm not proud.
Nick Name Growing Up : Bear. Most people that I grew up with, still call me Bear. I grunted a lot as a child, and my mom said I sounded like a bear. Then as I staretd to play sports, the name stuck with my coaches and teammates, until eventually nobody even knew that wasn't my real name. When I changed High Schools, I avoided letting anyone at the new high school know that's what people called me. Since then, I've been called "White Chocolate", "Mandingo", or "Sir Harles".
People Would Be Shocked If They Knew : I'm a country songwriter. Eventually, I want to make that my full-Time Career. Good career, huh??? I'll spend my days waiting on the mail to deliver my royalty checks. I could give up radio for that. ALSO, I'm missing 1/2 of my middle finger on my left hand. Words to the wise : Don't fall out of graces with a police trained German Shepherd, especially when you're seven years old and he outweighs you. I'm lucky, I'm not missing my whole hand. It makes for some great party tricks now, though.
