Jim felt the surge of energy on stage when he was only two years old as he sat behind the drums in his uncle's rock and roll band. Music became a part of his life from that moment on. He got both his first guitar and his first motorcycle when he was three years old...and began on a journey that has led him to where he is today.
Jim’s first memory of singing to an audience was getting up on stage at the age of nineteen at the famous Nashville Palace. Thinking back to that night, he remembers being nervous and excited at the same time but just telling himself to do the best he could and to just keep on going. When asked about performing and being on stage Jim remembers a quote that was told to him by Barbara Mandrell who had first heard it from Minnie Pearl. “If you get up there on stage and love them they will love you right back.” And from that day forward that is what Jim has done at each of his shows. Jim says, “I walk beside my fans and give back as much as I can.”
