The frontier stories of American novelist Louis L’Amour have been an influence on Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance of Jamestown Revival since the band’s formation. At the age of 23, both Clay and Chance read L’Amour’s memoir, The Education Of A Wandering Man, and since then, fans haven’t had to dig very deep to find their hat tips to the late, great legend.
