By Joan Hallmark - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The book "Keepin' It Country" by P.A. Geddie, recounts Tom Perryman's 60 plus years in country music as a DJ, producer and promoter. There wasn't anyone during that time that Perryman didn't know. He even helped many stars like Elvis Presley get their start in the business.

At the age of 82, Tom Perryman continues to bring country music to those who have always loved it and to a younger generation just now falling in love with country music's special sound, from radio station KKUS 104.1 The Ranch. There's no one else in the country doing it so long or so well as Tom Perryman.
