Country singer whose first album was Used Heart for Sale and who released singles like "Nothing on but The Radio." His voice is considered notable due to its raw and raspy tone.

He has had twenty-four hit singles on the country charts including "Man to Man" and "Get Off on the Pain."
He married Tracy Taylor in 1987, then model Danette Day in 1998, and then Angela Herzberg on June 5, 2001. His third marriage ended after Angela tragically took her own life in 2004.
His hit "Her Man," previously recorded by Waylon Jennings, was on the top twenties chart.
