Dusty walks you through a childhood in the trailer park, his adult years in the workforce, and as an occasional blackout drunk. He thinks skunks smell like weed, and leaves the serious topics like race, religion and politics up to someone who, unlike him, hasn’t drank gas out of a water hose.

Dusty was born in Alabama. His parents divorced when he was two, then there was a custody battle. His mom lost, so he had to go live with her. As a result, he split time between his dad who lived on a farm, and his mom who lived in a trailer park. When asked about his education, Slay says,
“When I was kid, my dad asked me if I wanted to go to college or if I wanted a pool. Man, I love that pool.”
Dusty Slay is now based in Nashville, TN. There, he is a local favorite at his home club, Zanies, and opens for many touring celebrities. They include: Rob Schneider, Jeff Ross and Roseanne.
