Johnny and Sammy Butten Get a Second Chance for Permanent Residence

Johnny ButtenIn March of this year, award winning bluegrass banjoist Johnny Butten was informed that the United States wasn't going to renew his visa and that he would be forced to return to England. Many wrote letter in support of Johnny and his family to remain in America. He had an endorsement with Recording King, had built up a new band Telegraph Road and was active on the bluegrass circuit. That all came to an immediate halt. Today, there is good news. Johnny, Sammy and the family will get a new visa and can begin the permanent resident process again.
