    This encouraged them on bigger things. Searching for new material they went to Jacksonville, Florida to see Mae Axton who co-authored "Heartbreak Hotel". Mae took a liking to the boys and worked with them improving their style. The boys really dug ib and worked hard for another ten months, playing as many tours and dates as they could.
