Gary's musical journey began at age 9 while riding along with his dad to their family camp. There was a song playing on the radio... He started singing along, and the rest is history! Gary enjoys spending time with his twin boys and two Daughters! Gary has an extensive guitar collection. The equipment Gary prefers is his Custom Built Signature J&B Customs Tele-Style, as well as his Gibson Les Paul Robot Series In Manhattan Blue. He uses a Line 6 M16 module for all of the effects you hear at the shows, played through an Egnater Tweaker 40 amplifier. Some of the biggest influences in his musical career have been Alabama, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan.
