A couple of week-ends ago, I worked an event where this man was the headline entertainment.
A down home Canadian originally from the province of Nova Scotia, his career and love story is definitely one of romance novels.
Originally employed as an IT, he worked his butt off for nine years to still do singing gigs in a country rock band while providing for his wife and two children. When the band broke up, he decided to return to a normal life. According to his bio, his wife said, "Nuh-uh!" and encouraged him to go solo. In 2003, he auditioned on Nashville Star and nearly won. Eventually, he signed with RCA records and recorded
in Nashville. And the rest is history....
If you haven't heard of him - well I'm proud to be called a Canadian alongside this burning hunk
And if you haven't heard his voice yet - click on the link to hear him sing a cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire". *swoon*
