I saw him several times in concert- once at a venue in Chicago (while on vacation) where they were even turning people away because there was no more room. I've also met him (very briefly) a few times for pictures and autographs. I really haven't kept up with him in many years, or even thought much about him...until recently.
For some reason he was on my mind not long ago and I decided to look him up and see what he's been up to these last several years (heck, I didn't even know he got married- and that happened in 2004, lol!)
Anyway, there is some sad news to report about him: Carman Searches for Meaning in Cancer Diagnosis
If anyone here is or ever was a fan of Carman, or even if you just like him at all, he is welcoming any encouraging prayers and comments on his FB page.
