For as long as I can remember, I have always had the dream to sing for people. When I was younger, I would daydream about stories and life lessons told in the songs of so many great artists. I take inspiration from the works of many amazing musicians and writers; everyone from Garth Brooks to Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra to Vince Gill, Etta James to Patsy Cline, the list goes on and on.
I grew up in southeastern Oklahoma in a small town called Savanna! I grew up on a farm and since the moment I could walk, I have had an animal of some kind by my side as often as I possibly could! I continue to work and live on that same farm today, and I still keep my animals with me whenever I can! That can be hard sometimes though.. My farm consists of a large number of unruly goats and one spoiled cow! I enjoy the lifestyle of being a farmer and I hope to always be able to live it!
In the last few years I have taken up song writing, and have come to find that I enjoy it very much! Writing down things from my life - my past, my desires, my dreams - and creating a song has became therapeutic for me, in a way! I have lived through my fair share of hardships and dark times in my life and those have made me the man that I am today! God has carried me through this life and continues to day by day. I am truly blessed by being able to do what I love with a group of wonderful people!
