J. T. -- Jerry
Turner has long been known as the "bastard brother" in the band. Renowned
for never practicing a lead in his life, Jerry, who plays electric guitar,
fit in nicely with The Cartwright Brothers' rigid rehearsal schedule. "Who?"
Said Mark, when asked about J.T.'s eight dedicated years of showing up if and
when he felt like it. "It was always nice
to have someone to watch the
while we loaded out," added Jeff.
"That guy was... what's the word people are using nowadays? Oh
yeah... he was really loud." Jerry moved to Miller, South Dakota, where he is
enjoying a solo career, but he still makes the pilgrimage to an
occasional Cartwright show. "We keep in touch quite regularly," says
Jeff. "Occasionally he'll send us a couple of mistakes in the mail
just so we don't get too comfortable without him."
