I have been playing music for 35 years . Been in bands for as long as I can remember . I have been playing and writing music with my band for 14 years ( The Whiskey Tom Band .) Been fortunate enough to have some of my music played on the air in towns like Tulsa , Stillwater , Ponca City , Ada and Lindsay . I was voted male vocalist of the year at the Paul ’ s Valley Opry in 2016 and voted into the Paul ’ s Valley Opry Hall Of Fame in 2019 . More than anything though I just love to sing and write music . Got a feeling I ’ ll be doing it until the good Lord takes me away from here .
