I grew up in Sylva, NC, spent half of my life there and the other half in Knoxville, Nashville and on the road. I have an unreal family, I do what I love for a living and do it the way my gut tells me to. I grew up playing every kind of ball imaginable, played college baseball at Western Carolina University, did pretty well, but ultimately music chose me. A song called “Shine” allowed me to start touring nationally, and I haven’t stopped. I’ve gotten to know and love an enormous amount of friends across our great country, as I’ve played every show I could play, everywhere I could play them. I wrote a song with my best friend about my dad after he passed away (12/13/14), and I truly believe that “Hey Dad” is a major reason I’m on this earth. It allows me to talk about my dad every day, hear other people tell me about their dads, and makes me want to be the best dad I can be. I just released my new song, “Everybody’s Got A Hometown”, and will be traveling the country playing Hometown House Parties for the rest of the year and beyond.
