Interesting Tidbits
I first realized I wanted to be an artist when I first played air guitar to
"Wanted Dead Or Alive" in front of an audience at a grade school talent show
I want to be a singer/songwriter because it was a way to express myself
My previous jobs involving music have been: Playing bass for Wade Hayes, Trent Willmon,
The LoCash Cowboys, Ty Herndon and Luke Bryan and acoustic guitar for Katrina Elam.
The most exciting part of my career so far Getting to share the stage with people I
grew up hearing on the radio and getting paid to see the world
Strangest gift I've received: a blow up doll from my old road manager Marty
First paying gig: Playing at a high school dance
Job I would rather starve than do: Uh, I'll do what I gotta do
My hero is Jesus
Posters on my wall as a kid: The Road Warriors and pictures I painted myself
First childhood crush on a star: Belinda Carlisle
If I could tour with anyone it would be Lynyrd Skynyrd
