I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I grew up singing mostly in church and learning gospel harmonies. I went to Nashville when I was 24 in hopes of finding a break in the music business.

One day, I met Jimmy Fortune at Hilltop Studio in Nashville and created a friendship that still lasts today. That same night he invited me to the Station Inn. Jimmy got me on stage at the end of the set to sing one with him.

Little did I know at the time that Doyle Lawson was looking for a high lead/tenor singer. A few people reached out to Doyle after hearing me sing that night, and three days later I drove to Bristol Tennessee, auditioned, and took the job with Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. 

After being with Doyle for a couple of years, he retired at the end of last year. Since then, I have joined Dailey and Vincent and currently still tour with them.
