Hometown: Campbellsville/Greensburg, Kentucky
Current Home: Nashville, Tennessee
Hobbies: playing music; going to concerts; watching football; playing at top golf; working out; and reading. Reading can bring inspiration for a song, and playing music is more than just a job for me.
Intro to country music: My great grandpa gave me my first record when I was about 7 or 8 years old. It was Josh Turner’s “Long Black Train.” I must have spun that record a million times. I fell in love with the stories and his unmistakable sound. I knew then it was what I wanted to be.
Favorite country artist: I admire so many artists but hands down my favorite is Garth Brooks. There is something to the way that he interacts with his fans. I hope to sync in with that gift someday and be half of what he is to his fans. So many artists have cool sounds that I admire but fan interaction is most important to me.
4th & Main Involvement: I became involved with 4th and Main after a conversation with Wayne Haun on the way home from a concert. We were talking about what country music was currently missing. The word “harmony” kept surfacing. It was his idea to put four-part harmony together to form a country band. About three weeks later, I showed up at his house with my guys and now here we are.
Uniqueness of 4th & Main: What sets us apart are all the things that we can do or be. We’re constantly asked if we’re a boy band. I think we ride that line so close. We are definitely an edgier hybrid of something like that. We can swap in and out of lead lines into harmony lines with ease. Nobody’s really doing that right now, especially in an all-male group. Our live shows are crowd-centered and connected. The guys I’m with are just great singers and it makes singing fun.
