This week when DPAO brings the Oak Ridge Boys to town Tuesday, its a homecoming for the man behind the drum set..
Gouverneur native Austin Curcuruto has been playing percussion for the Oak Ridge Boys since summer of last year.
Austin, who's been playing drums since he was 13, hopes others back home realize they too can make it in music.
"It's everything I could have ever hope for so I'm just doing my job and following the leader out here," he said. "Sometimes those dreams or aspirations can seem to be so so far away, but I promise you all you got to do is just go for it."
Austin said he's excited to play in front of his friends and family in the north country at the Watertown Fairgrounds arena.
