My music career began five years ago. I had never sang in public or never played an instrument. I learned to play the guitar and went to an open mic a year after learning. I was hired on the spot by a large venue in south Alabama. Since then I have a full time Nashville based band. We have played on the same concert bill as Darryl Worley (2 times) who is a regular on the Grand Ole Opry and has three number one hits including one at 7 weeks on the charts “Have you Forgotten”. I have also played on the same bill as James Otto who has a number one hit and has co-written many hits in Nashville including Jamey Johnson’s “In Color”.
Currently I am scheduled with Irlene Mandrell of the world famous Barbara Mandrell and The Mandrell Sisters on Nov. 11 in southern Alabama.
I am very excited about playing in a city that I love dearly. This will mark my fourth year playing during the UTC Homecoming festivities. I want to welcome alumnus and current students out to the show.
