Gunther: Breaking The Honky Tonk Man's Record Would Be A Big Accomplishment

Speaking with Rick Ucchino on Cincy 3:60, Gunther was asked to describe what breaking the Honky Tonk Man's record would mean to him. He stated that it would be a big accomplishment, but he's focused on what's right in front of him.

"It would be, obviously, a great accomplishment and maybe the biggest accomplishment of my career, to that date. But also, there’s still some time to go, and I try to focus on what’s right in front of me and make the best out of that situation. I don’t try to get caught up in the future with what ifs and what could happen, even though it’s not that far away. I think once it’s all said and done, I’ll be able to lean back and enjoy it a little bit. It would be very rewarding and a big accomplishment," Gunther said.
