Country singer best known for competing on season 10 of NBC's America's Got Talent. He wrote the 2013 hit single "Carolina" for the country band Parmalee.

Before Fame

He had been signed with a small record label and was finally gaining traction in 2010, when the label abruptly shut down before the release of his debut single "Carolina." He continued his career as a songwriter and gave "Carolina" to the band Parmalee, who turned it into a hit. He auditioned for America's Got Talent in 2015 and became a finalist.


His experience in the music scene left him somewhat disillusioned and bitter toward the music business in Nashville.

Family Life

He and his wife, Ashley, welcomed a son named Jaxon.

Associated With

America's Got Talent host Howard Stern liked his music but always questioned why the country music scene in Nashville never gave him another chance.
