Shoot for the Stars
I've always had these bios written about me but they never seem to quite fit. This time around, I want you to hear my story straight from the horse's mouth... Music has always been a huge part of my life. As far back as I can remember, I've been a singer. I grew up in a musical family in the heart of Mississippi where I was exposed to music ranging from Johnny Cash to the Eagles to B.B. King and everything in between. I learned to sing in church and later picked up my dad's old guitar. I played in bands throughout high school and college performing anywhere they'd let me play. That led me here, to Nashville, TN. Just like everyone else, I traveled Music Highway into Music City with grandiose dreams of being the next big thing. Almost five years later, I'm not a star, but I get to make great music with great people. I get to grow my career a step at a time and I continue to take the stage night after night to play my heart out and win my fans one by one. I have no complaints. Life is good. I have a new EP coming out in August 2007 that I'm very proud of and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it. That's the thing about music, it's a shared experience. It can make you smile or it can make you cry; it can knock you down and then pick you right back up again and I get the honor of sharing it with you. Thank you for listening. - JB.
