Little Rock, AR I grew up listening to a lot of country music with my parents, but part of my rebellion was musical. After spending a lot of time in hard rock, metal, rap, indie rock, jazz and even an obsession with early-mid 70’s Stevie Wonder, I made my way back to country. Really there were always artists like Bill Mallonee and Neil Young that I was listening to in the interim, but it took a while to get back to guys like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and Lefty Frizzell. Today, my interests are primarily in the roots/americana/country/southern rock area of things, but that doesn't mean I don't listen to anything else.
