Alan, co-creator and co-host of Small Town Famous™, is a small town native for most of his life (There was this one time, he spent 3 years in New Orleans). He is a successful business owner in our area of Southwest Arkansas.

Alan and TagAlan is a Baptist-believin', KJV-only, Bible-totin' Christian. He is a dedicated husband to Leslie and Daddy of 4 kids. And, he is a big believer in country livin'. He's a former preacher, current Sunday School teacher, end-time events (eschatology) "expert" and geo-politics geek. His "small town" worldview combined with study, travel, and life-experience have molded a unique, often eccentric, viewpoint that tends to result in interesting or "down-right" strange conversations on a variety of topics. Now, he has a passion to spread the word that people from small towns can do BIG things!

He has decided to share conversations that usually involve his best friends, Jordan (co-creator and co-host) and Jeffrey (guest co-host when he ain't working at the sawmill). Those conversations, interviews, and much more will be shared here, at smalltownfamous.com and the Small Town Famous™ podcast.

Jerome Erskin

Jerome Erskin

Jerome grew up in several places but spent the bulk of his childhood between Killeen TX and Winnsboro LA. He is a journeyman serviceman for the local power company Entergy. Jerome first became an avid fame of Small Town Famous. He stated, "In my line of work we spend a lot of time away from our families while "keeping the lights on", and because of that I get the opportunity to listen to many different podcasts during my days and nights. STF is a great family friendly podcast that makes you feel like you're part of the group every time a new episode is put up. They are just a regular group of guys anyone can relate to, especially if you come from small town roots."

Upon moving to Taylor, Jerome expressed an interested in becoming a regular on STF. In August of 2017 we welcomed him as a new co-host. Jerome is "small town" through and through and his voice is a great addition to the team. Jerome has a beautiful wife and 2 adorable little girls.
