As a youngster, I started playing bass in my step-fathers' band in middle Georgia when I was 9 years old. By the time I was 14, I had my own band and was playing rhythm guitar and singing lead in several local middle Georgia establishments. When I was 16 years old, I moved with my mother to El Paso, Texas where I got my first taste of western swing and fell in love with the Texas 2-step style of music.

I continued to pursue my music and during my service in the U.S. Army, my band “Cross Country Jams”, and I received recognition and special award for touring and performing for our troops at numerous remote out posts in South Korea.

In recent years, I have taken to writing my own songs as well as performing. In my debut album “Feelin’ Like Merle Livin’ Like Hank” I either wrote or co-wrote 5 of the 12 songs on the album. There are also 2 other songs on the album that are first time releases.

Early influences in my style of music were Ray Price, Marty Robbins and Bob Wills. My singing style is all my own, with a smooth, nerve soothing quality when I sing a ballad to a rich, full voiced style when I perform an upbeat song. If you like country music, traditional or modern, there is no doubt you will enjoy my debut album “Feelin’ Like Merle Livin’ Like Hank”. Give it a listen and buy the album if you like what you hear.
Do you play live?
Yes, we play live in the middle Georgia area at several of the night spots. We also play special events and even at house warming functions.

We will play for anyone, anywhere for any reason. We love it that much.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think there are a lot of good things that the internet makes available to musicians such as the opportunity for additional exposure to thier music.

As a songwriter I also see some of the bad things that happen such as loss of royalty revenue.

Overall, I think the internet has more good than bad when it comes to our music.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes, I would sign a record contract with a major label as a singer or songwriter should an opportunity present itself.
Your influences?
My musical influences are all country. George Jones, George Strait, Bob Wills, Tracey Lawrence, Conway Twitty, Ray Price and Marty Robbins.
Favorite spot?
My favorite place is the whole state of New Mexico. From the arrid foot hills to the majestic mountains. I love the wide open spaces, the climate and the people.
