While attending UT Martin, my first music business experience was being on a entertainment committee that booked and promoted a Wet Willy concert in 1977. In the 80's I booked Contemporary Christian and Southern Gospel acts. In 2000 I started booking and promoting acts and events for the Hickman Co AG Pavilion and Fairgrounds.

I retired in 2012, and just wanted to take it easy and learn to play a little guitar. Then I started booking and promoting shows for Piney River Escape. 2012, we promoted Beats &Blues on the Piney. In 2013 we promoted Beats & Blues on the Piney, Piney River Bluegrass, HCHS 70's Decade Reunion, and hosted the Piney River Freedom, Folk and Soul Festival, plus many other monthly shows.
In 2018, retired again....we will see how this works out this time.
