Personal Quote:

I had recorded with a little group for so long that there wasn't anything for me to do from an instrumental standpoint. I had to be reborn. See more »


Toured and recorded with legendary Nashville guitarist, Hank Garland. See more »


He performed wearing a tuxedo or other traditional jacket, rather than the typical glitzy "country" outfit.
