Elaborate on your music career.
As a performer I can tell you that there is no greater feeling than watching people sing along with you at your shows and this happens about 230 times a year for me. Yes, I play that much! They say hard work pays off and I am surely seeing it. I have played many venues with artists such as Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Gary Allan, Big & Rich, Joe Nichols, Travis Tritt, Randy Travis, .38 Special, Terri Clark, Lorrie Morgan, Ronnie Milsap, Josh Turner, Charlie Daniels, Pam Tillis and more. 7 of my tunes have hit radio with my most recent songs being indie chart hits; “Kiss Me Somethin’ Good” and “Tequila is Gonna Kill Me Someday”.
I have been honored by The 2017 Josie Music Awards by winning Modern Country Male Rising Star of the Year. As a writer I have won numerous awards from The Billboard Song Contest, The Great American Songwriting Contest, The International Songwriting Contest and I have been a “One to Watch” writer multiple times with NSAI. Recently I was selected as Richmond’s Best Musician in 2018 by Style Weekly.
My 1st CD “Kiss Me Somethin’ Good” and 2nd CD “Tequila is Gonna Kill Me Someday” both have sold over 5,000 copies and are available to listen and purchase on Pandora, Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music. Just released my 3rd CD; DJK III, in September of 2018.
