I live in southeast Missouri, and have been a musician for many years. I’ve played a lot in two piece bands, but only started writing my own music about 5-6 years ago (The wife wanted a song for Christmas). My influences were, Eagles, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Vince Gill, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Brooks & Dunn, Colin Raye, America, Garth Brooks, Keith Urban and many more. I was fortunate that my Uncle had a Bar that I moved to when I was 14, and it was more like a community center, with a juke box that had a wide variety of music. At age 17 I joined the Army to support myself and that’s when I bought my first guitar, from the local pawn shop. Back at the barracks my fellow soldiers suggested I either learn to play quickly or they would burn the thing. Needless to say I learned quickly, and the guitar survived. When I got out I got a much better guitar and a better life when I met my wife (she was watching me type that last line). Anyway we’ve been doing alright ever since.
