His name "Halfsmoked" is what his Grandpa used to call him while he was growing up, he went by a different name for a while. To honor his Grandpa who we lost in 2000 he started going by "Halfsmoked" I think it's a great way to honor and show respect for his Grandpa who by the way was also a great singer.
