“Borned on a mountain top in Tennessee…” or was he? David Crockett was indeed a rip-roarin' pioneer whose larger-than-life aura transformed him into nothing short of mythical. Today we visit Mission San Antonio de Valero, better known as The Alamo, to summon the spirit of Davy Crockett himself. Forget what you knew and listen along as we dispel fact from fiction! And jam with us as we sing The Slightly-More-Accurate Ballad of Davy Crockett.
Davy Crockett is played by Kahlil Nelson. Kahlil is a museum professional, tour guide, and Tiki enthusiast.
