Tell us about your past before you became a country music singer
Born and raised in Cypress Bottom, LA. Played college basketball at Bossier Parish Community College in Bossier City, LA and University of North Carolina Pembroke in Pembroke, NC. Worked on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico for 6 years.
Favorite moment in your singing career?
Getting to share the stage with and singing family tradition with my musical hero, Hank Williams Jr.
When we were set to open a show on the beach in Bay St. Louis, MS for the late Greg Almon. A storm blew in about 3 hours before show time and knocked the stage scaffolding down ruining our equipment and his. Not a good day!
Not too many, we’ve been plugging along pretty good.
Who or what inspired you to become a country music singer?
14 straight 12 hour days in the Gulf Of Mexico for 6 years will light a fire under any dream. Musically, my inspiration has and always will be Bocephus.
What’s coming up in the future for you?
More albums, more touring. Just trying to go bigger and better for the fans every year.
What’s your biggest strengths and weaknesses as in artist?
Biggest strength so far is I’ve never had writer’s block. 6 albums in and the songs are still pouring out of me. If I’m being honest, biggest weakness is food. If I don’t watch myself during the week, getting in them show jeans come the weekend is a struggle haha
What’s your songwriting process?
Not a 2pm writing appointment with 4 other people. I’ve got a home and 165 acre farm about 45 minutes south of Nashville. Most of my best work has come alone on the front porch.
Favorite thing to do in your free time?
Anything outdoors. Deer and turkey hunting are my passions.
What’s your average day like?
I own my label, lone chief records, so during the week I’m pretty busy. My wife and I still hand all my business affairs and the majority of everything Frank Foster.
Your favorite song you’ve released?
Romance In the South. Not because it was a huge hit, but because it meant a lot to me and the people who lived in the story.
