I am so saddened to hear of John’s passing. Many hours we spent with him at Silver Dollar City when He played music with Kustom Bluegrass. I have countless pictures from that season. Pictures of him playing bluegrass. My thought and prayers are with you. Christina, I am so sorry. I met you years ago. Praying that God comforts your heart today and through the days to come.

My dear brother-in-law, you are sorely missed. I know that you’re in Heaven picking and strumming with those who went before you. We will make sure Chris is okay. God will keep her in His arms to comfort her. God bless.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Chris, I’m so sorry. I haven’t seen you since we worked together when I introduced you to John. I spoke to him several years back and he talked about how great you were. I’ll be out of state Saturday, or I’d be at the services.

John Carnahan was a life long family friend. As young men in our teens,the Wynn Brothers teamed up with John Carnahan and Bill Padgett and Jim Montgomery to form our first Bluegrass Band called,Cedar Ridge,and later We changed our Band name to, Kustum Grass, We went on to perform at Silver Dollar City for one season. We all learned so much about performance, John was a natural at playing his famous Wynn banjo. R.I.P. My Brother, We Love You John
