I was born in Fort Worth, Texas. I’ve been playing Country Music most of my life and like most musicians, I started out playing and singing Rock & Roll. Now I still love Rock, but long about the age of 14, I heard a guy named Johnny Cash and that changed everything. I started listening to more and more Country and just decided it was for me. Some of my influences were Johnny Cash, Johnny Duncan, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Charley Pride. But I also love Ronnie Milsap, Randy Travis, Bobby Bare, Waylon & Willie and many others. I married young and was a police officer for many years. I’ve had the privilege of performing with some of my idols and also had the honor of performing on the “Doug Gabriel Show” in Branson, Missouri. I consider Doug to be my closest friend on Earth even though we live far apart. I write everything I record. Now that could be good or bad depending on whether or not you like the songs. I have been blessed with many friends by way of my music and that is definitely good. I hope you’ll be one of those friends. Oh yes…..my wife’s name is Kathy and I still have a school boy crush on her after all these years.
