ABOUT

I am looking to start or join a country band that plays primarily 90's country, a few current songs, and a bit of southern and classic rock also. I just recently left a very serious regional band in Nebraska due to moving and am looking to jump back in. I would like to gig 2-3 weekends a month. I was born in Nashville, TN but grew up in Southeast Missouri. I love to sing, play guitar, and write songs. I have been playing guitar and singing around 25 years. I am looking for seriously committed musicians who are interested in starting a country band. I would like others who can sing and especially sing harmonies. I am more than willing to share the setlist and would love to see some 3 and 4 part harmonies.
