Q: At what point did you feel that you were destined to make music your career?
A: I never had any other thought in my mind since I was five years old. It became my career and calling. When I was little, the audience lit up and I knew that was what I wanted to do, because it made people smile and get into it. I’m always hoping to write new songs because I am a composer as well, but I am mainly an entertainer because I like to give my audience a good time and that’s what it’s really about. To come in and play a theater like the Opera House is just a joy to me because it’s a perfect setting.

But, before all those adventures, he was a teenager having a great summer on Lake Murray with his buddies.
