I was born in Marianna, Florida town and raised in Dothan, Alabama. Growing up, we spent as much time as possible in Panama City Beach, as well as staying with family on a dairy farm in Grand Ridge, Florida. And then on Saturday nights, we went with my grandfather to the radio station. His name was Farley Taylor and he had a nationally-syndicated radio show called "The Old Taylor Made Opry", broadcast from WTVY-FM in Dothan. His radio show was on the air from 1977, before I was even born, until his death in 1992. I wasn't even 10 years old yet, but the radio station was full of wonderment and magic for me. And my grandfather's style of country music that he played was really all I had listened to up until that point. I was hooked on traditional country music. And at this point, I was hooked on radio. From that very young age, I would be found in my room with my turntable listening intently to those records. Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Merle Haggard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Waylon Jennings, Gary Stewart, Mel Street, and my all-time favorite: George Jones. That love of country music has continued all the way down to today, and my early musical influences can be heard in my own musical style. You can hear me every weekday afternoon from 3-7pm on iHeartRadio's country stations. I'm also heavily involved in serving our community, fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and serving on the Board of Directors for Ronald McDonald House Charities. I'm also a musician, singer, songwriter, and I have a classic country & honky tonk band called "Old Soul Revival" that stays very active.
