Best in Me
Bryan grew up in Tampa, Florida. Coming from a musical family, Bryan was born with music flowing through his veins. At a young age his family exposed him to country music by listening to Willie Nelson, The Oakridge Boys, and other great country artists. Bryan was surrounded by musical influences. Around the age of 8 years old, his mother, grandmother, two aunts and a cousin formed a gospel group called the Kindreds. The Kindreds sang and played in various locations for the next several years. In the fourth grade, Bryan started taking violin lessons at school. He chose the violin because it was the only string instrument besides the piano that they offered lessons in. He continued with his violin lessons through the sixth grade. When Bryan was fourteen his Pop bought him his first quitar from a mail order magazine. His Pop told him that if he stuck with it and continued to show an interest in playing the guitar that he would get him a real guitar when he was a little older. So, when Bryan turned sixteen his Pop bought his first real guitar from a local music store. Bryan took what he learned from his violin lessons and taught himself how to play the guitar. At the age of seventeen, Bryan joined a rock band playing lead guitar for about a year. At eighteen he became the lead vocatist for the band as well as the lead guitarist. He continued to sing and play with the rock band over the next year. Bryan started writing songs at the age of nineteen. There was only one problem, all of the songs he wrote were country. He knew then that his heart belonged to country and knew that he was destined to pursue a career in country music. He then quit the rock band to pursue his career in country music. Bryan has won several local competitions. He won the Jimmy Dean True Value Country Showdown in Savannah, Georgia in 1998. In 2001, he competed in the Great Savannah Talent Competition where he won an award for Best Male Vocalist. In 2003 he won the local Colgate Country Showdown in Lyons, Georgia.
