"I was raised on a farm in a small town in Southeast Missouri surrounded by a supportive family and an abundance of friends."
"Music has not always been my passion. In fact, I was always the kid that never participated in music class or music performances. My music journey has been completely unplanned and my success continues to astound me."
"When I was 16 I picked my great grandfather's gibson.... out of tune and with 5 strings, I fell in love with the art of playing. I soon learned that I also had the God-given talent to sing along."
"I want to deliver songs that make people feel them in their soul. Above all I want to stay true to my faith, the man I truly am, and the type of music I want to make without boundaries or conforming."
