PROFESSION: Singer‑songwriter at CURB Publishing.
HOBBIES: Collecting vinyl and traveling. I love to absorb every place I visit.
LAST BOOK I READ: Waylon by Terry Jennings.
LAST ACCOMPLISHMENT: I had two really cool things happen recently. I was in a movie with Stephen Dorff and Kris Kristofferson called Wheeler. I had a major role just playing myself. I was executive producer on the film and also co‑produced some of the soundtrack. The film will be released in February. I just finished a new CD, Out of Road. It features guest vocals by Vince Gill, Bobby Bare, Sylvia, Bill Anderson, Mo Pitney, Linda Davis and Hank Jr.’s daughter Hilary Williams.
