Teen guitarist accompanies Omaha dad at store

Dec 26, 2013

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 17-year-old Omaha boy spent his Christmas morning strumming tunes on his guitar at an Omaha convenience store while his dad worked nearby, selling gas, coffee, doughnuts and other morning staples.

Omaha television station KETV says that when Tag Ryan found out his dad was scheduled for a Christmas shift, Tag asked whether he could join him at the store and play some holiday tunes.

Tag says it felt good "to brighten people's days."

His father, Bill Ryan, says the impromptu holiday concert was one way to show appreciation to customers.
