Yes! Attending Reunion
What are your memories of high school (i.e. secret crush, embarassing moment, funniest moment, favorite hang out, favorite teachers)?

Favorite teacher? Mrs. Craven and Mr. Miller (english) were my favorite teachers. They were always very encouraging to this kid who never did well in school.
Funniest moment? I remember one day in math class (my WORST), Lane Gaby had gotten a fresh haircut. The teacher called on him at a moment where he hadn't particularly been paying attention (usually MY specialty, most especially in math class). He asked, "What was the question? I didn't hear it." I said, "Get a haircut." The whole class fell off their seats laughing...

What did you want to do, or think you were going to do when you finished high school?

I had always planned to be a musician from about 6th grade. As is probably well known by anyone who knew me at all, my family was a band from the time I was in 7th grade until I was 23 years old. Please visit my website:

What did you want to do that you haven't done yet?

I'd like to get a degree. Im currently contemplating going back to school. I currently (as of 8/03/10) have 15 college credits at Volunteer State Community College.

Who are you hoping to see at the reunion?

I would love to attend the reunion but am unable. It would be great to see Scott Mishler, Mark Metzler, Darryl Mishler, and Kevin Plank, my best friends in high school.

When was the last time you belly laughed? And why?

Probably from reading political bumper stickers on the internet earlier this evening (pretty funny stuff).

Ever sang Karaoke? What song, and will you be singing it Friday night with Ron Culp?

I have and I won't do it anymore.

How old do you feel?

48, most of the time.

Please share something about you and/or your family:

My family is well. My wife has always been VERY supportive of anything I want to do. Throughout all the years I tried to be a pilot and through getting back to playing music she's been right there for me every step of the way. Our daughter is 17 and starting her senior year. She is in the National Honor Society (luckily she didn't take after me in school) and plans to be a veterinarian.
My wife is a project manager for HMS (IT department) and does very well.
I currently am guitarist for Easton Corbin, a new country music artist on Mercury Records, Nashville, TN. In these summer months we are on the road 4-5 days per week. It's much rougher now for me to be gone from home that much than it was 10-15 years ago.
