Country/TX Country, whatever you want to call it, it's definitely original. I write and perform everything from classic and original country to today's rockin' country, and re-cover alot of pop-culture's greats in my own fashion.


I began writing when I was 19, in the small town of White Deer, TX. I didn't know I had it in me, but felt a new and strong desire to persue writing as a career. I moved to Nashville for a short term, to "pay my dues" and did I ever! I came back to the Panhandle, went to college and got a real job. It wasn't long before I realized a real job just wasn't for me, ha ha. I started with a small project studio, and fell in love with recording and producing as well. In spring of '05 I got my first big opportunity, a song of mine had been used as the intro song and background music on a CMT reality show. A little taste of success goes a long way. As ambitious and driven as ever, I believe I have what it takes to make it in this industry.


Dreamin' Out Loud, Already Gone, Where Shadows Grow Long, Get Me Down, Another Year A Million Miles, and the list goes on.

Set List

I like to do alot of originals. Reality says that you need covers as well, unless it's a back porch venue, or strictly a songwriter's night. My covers include my influences from contemporary to TX country including Merle Haggard, Randy Rogers, Gary Allan, Cooder Graw, Josh Turner, and old Clint Black to name a few.
