Singer Lee Greenwood gets an Original Calmetto, as Cal and his wife, Julie, made the presentation at the Alabama Theater in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Cal heard him sing for the first time, “God Bless the USA”, to President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan at the 1984 Republican National Convention. Greenwood agreed with Cal that there was not a dry eye in the Convention Center! He was very humble and very appreciative.
Thanks to Theater owner, Charlie Bradshaw, for making this possible.
Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel visits the South Carolina Coast on a pretty day. As Cal presented Cantore with an Original Calmetto, he thanked him for looking out for us along the Coast, and added, “Please stay away during hurricane season, because when we see you, we run.“
Quote from Governor Haley’s Facebook page:
“Thank you to Cal Harrelson for this great painting. He does all colors and sizes! They make great Christmas gifts!”
