By the age of 14, I taught
myself to play the guitar and by the age of 16, I was writing songs. I
grew up listening to Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, Merle Haggard, Willie
Nelson, Hank Williams, Hank Williams, Jr. & Waylon Jennings. All these
artists seem to dig deep and write about triumphs in their lives and
weren't afraid to write about the turmoil either.
Over the years I have played in numerous bars and at festivals in and
around South Carolina. At The Bowery in Myrtle Beach, SC, I was a
special guest for one week. I performed with the Bud Moffet Band to
open for Tracy Lawrence at Rascals, Augusta, GA. At Tumbleweeds in
Anderson, SC, I performed with David Allan Coe. I was asked to perform
my signature song, "The Saluda County Tractor Pull" at the pull. During
the pull, Kentucky Filmmakers were following the American Puller
Association Circuit, completing a documentary in the making.
I continuously write songs based on the life experiences of myself,
family and friends. What makes my band unique? The band consists of
myself and my drummer, Cyndi. Although we are a two person band, we
perform! We have yet to play a bar or event and not pack the house. In
October, 2006, I returned home from a tour in Iraq and it feels really
good to get back to performing. I also received a new perspective
while I was gone. Life is what you make it and don't waste a minute! I
love to entertain and share my life through music. It's in my blood!
December, 2007, my song "Veterans Hand" was released on Country Vol 1
Compilation CD with To The Fallen Records www.tothefallenrecords.com.
To The Fallen Records is a military only record label and I thank them
for giving me the opportunity to share my music! HOOAH!!!
