Rodeo, horse shows and listening to old time music on the square in Mountain View Arkansas had a huge impact on me.

How do you create music?

It just comes to me in either melody or words.

I play guitar and a little mandolin.

 

What is your best and your worst memory on the road?

Best – playing to a big wonderful welcoming audience at the Tennessee Muddy Roots festival in 2018

Worst–  driving all the way to New Orleans to play a show on a tour and finding out last minute that I wasn’t really welcome to stay at the place I was told I was welcome to stay at. Then having to spend the little money I did make on a hotel.

 

What do you think about Live trigger?

I truly appreciate folks like y’all that support artists like me because it’s a tuff // yet wonderful path to pursue.
