I am one of the few Nashville Artists that was actually born in Nashville.
But since most people never believe this, I don't tell everyone I meet.

"I've always been a fan of country music, but it was not until I first heard Luther Perkins pick, that I decided I wanted to be a picker, too. He was my main influence and inspiration, although Johnny Cash, Merle, Waylon, Willie, Carl Perkins and others also influenced my style of picking."

I began writing songs at a very early age and by the age Of nineteen, was performing in Europe as well as in the United States.
I have been bandleader and manager for several of my own bands as well as other artists from as far away as Canada.

I am currently a staff writer for Highway 60 Music in Missouri.

I have several CD's recorded in Nashville on Music Row. The albums include something for everyone, up tempo, ballads, and even some comedy. My latest album is titled "Being Me Ain't Easy " and includes 10 songs which I wrote.

My songs have been and are currently being played worldwide with great response. I also has been on the other side of the dial, when I became DJ. I also hosted one of the few live country music radio shows in existence, The Live Saturday Afternoon Jam.

Some of my other accomplishments include: Playing at Skull's Rainbow Room in Printer's Alley, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, touring the New England states and many other venues throughout Tennessee and Kentucky.

One of my biggest achievements was when I was presented an award from King Eagle Awards for "Award of Merit " on October 2, 1999.

The Independent Country Music Association Of Germany nominated "Luther Perkins Picked" for "Song of the year" for 1999 and 2000. I was also nominated for the I C.M.A.G. Horizon Award"' for 2000.

At the Airplay International Awards show held in Nashville, Tn., September 28, 29 & 30, 2000, I was presented the International Song of the Year Award for the country song I wrote and recorded, "I Might Fall In Like With You".

I also received the International Star Award for Career Achievement for the year 2000, in London, England.

Thank you for taking the time to read my bio, and hopefully we will meet in person in the near future. Until then,

"Have a Great Country Day!!!"
