I started writing songs when I was 14 and moved to Nashville after I graduated high school to pursue a career in music. I started releasing music independently and touring when I was 19 and have slowly been building an audience. I actually started solo in my car, then toured in a pickup truck with a buddy, then a van, then a Winnebago camper with my wife, and now a Sprinter with my band. We just released my fourth album “Steel Town” and are currently opening for Willie Nelson and headlining our own shows across the country on Sirius XM’s Highway Finds Tour.
