I live in Church Hill, TN with my wife Greta and have been a member of Ralph Stanley's Clinch Mountain Boys since 1994 as lead guitarist and road manager. I have recorded 10 solo projects and one with George Shuffler. I have travelled all over the United States with the band as well as tours of Canada, England, Scotland and Ireland. During this time the band has performed at some of the most prestigeous venues such as Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, New York's Carnegie Hall, London's Queen Elizabeth Hall and all the major bluegrass festivals. In addition I've done network television appearances on the David Letterman Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Grand Ole Opry Live, The Marty Stuart Show, The CBS Early Show and Austin City Limits.
