Guitarist Tommy Allsup who is the father of recent The Voice contestant Austin Allsup is in intensive care and the Allsup family is asking for your prayers.

Tommy Allsup, an Oklahoma native, played for Buddy Holly's band and is also known for giving up his seat on the ill fated plane that crashed and killed Holly, J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson and Ritchie Valens in 1959. Allsup lost a coin toss for a seat on the plane to Valens.

Please leave your well wishes for Tommy in the below comment section. And let the Allsup family know that the Concho Valley is thinking of them.
