The man previously accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and other politicians, Paul Kevin Curtis, dropped by CNN for an interview this week after the charges against him were dropped. Curtis is reported to have been an Elvis impersonator, but it seems country music may be his strong suit. He expressed happiness to be free but also an expectation that he may possibly be "thrust into the limelight" as a result of the public attention from the charges.

The CNN reporter added fuel to the fire by asking Curtis to sing a song. He chose Randy Travis's "On the Other Hand" and burst into rousing rendition right there on air.

Check out the interview, above.
