- Bluegrass Gospel
I was born and raised on a farm in Piney Grove, Kentucky. Piney Grove is located in Laurel County which is in the southeastern part of the state. Upon graduation from high school, I joined the United States Army in which I served for seven years. After the military I returned to Kentucky and settled in the Lexington area and then in the late nineties I moved to Northern Kentucky to a little town named Independence. I am married with three children and three grand children.
I have always enjoyed country and bluegrass music, but I never really got involved. Around 1997, I met a couple guys that changed that through Mike Grimes (Host of Gospel Express on The Bluegrass Jamboree), Lardo and Burley, The Moron Brothers. We would all get together for a jam session weekly and my interest and love of bluegrass music started to grow. After moving to Northern Kentucky, my interest continued. I was able to start a jam session though my employment that evolved into a festival that evolved into hosting a bluegrass music show on a local terrestrial radio station. During this time I also was fortunate to be involved in playing in three different bluegrass and bluegrass gospel bands. The highlight of my musical career has been playing at the Ryman Auditorium twice.
My show, “The Country Store” features bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music that is on the charts today, yesterdays hits and we don’t forget the old standards. I am looking forward to spending time with all the listeners of The Bluegrass Jamboree. I do take “The Country Store” on the road from different bluegrass venues, so be sure when you see us, stop by and say “Hello”.
