Sound good from here Shansen,:icon14: looks quite a big venue also. You must be very proud, how long has he been playing?


He has been playing the guitar since Jr. high or so and he is now 29 years old. He was playing for money in his hometown while in high school at the local yogurt shop and places like that. He got a degree in music with a minor in music business at Belmont college in Nashville TN and was playing in several bands while going to college. He was taking a break and working as a analyst for a health care consulting company in Nashville and he heard that his company was losing their contract with the State of Tennessee. He also heard that Josh Turner was looking for a new steel guitar player. He had never played one, so he borrowed one, started practicing every night after work for 3 weeks and then tried out and got the job. This was about 6 months ago. He and Josh Turner actually went to the same college and graduated in the same class but weren't buddies or anything. It's who you know also in that my nephew had someone in the band that was acquianted with him and could vouch for him that he was dependable and wasn't a drama queen or anything.

Here is the video of my nephew's group. This was recorded a couple of years before my nephew joined them. In Nashville the stars usually use studio musicians for the recording of the album. Guys like my nephew only play on the concerts on the road.
