Mikes Picture

Mike is a singer/songwriter born and raised right here in Searcy County. Since 1991, he has made his home just north of Nashville, Tennessee.

Mike grew up just a few miles from the Buffalo National River, in the rural community of Marshall, Arkansas. He began playing guitar as a teen, and wrote his first song while still in school. After graduation, Mike worked as a disc jockey and copywriter for a number of years, before eventually meeting up with a former Motown executive, whose influences, along with those of Nashville producer and publisher Bob Millsap, brought Mike to the Nashville area in the early 90’s.

Mike’s first song cut was by bluegrass legend Mac Wiseman, a song called Countin’ Pennies that appeared on Mac’s MCA/DOT Master Series Album in the 80’s. Since then, Mike has been involved in the music industry as a songwriter, music publisher, performer and producer, in both the bluegrass and Christian music fields.

When we going back

 

Mike’s current album project is called WHEN WE GOIN’ BACK, and features some of bluegrass music’s best musicians, including Jason Carter on fiddle, Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Clay Hess on guitar, Charlie Cushman on banjo and Robert Gateley on the upright bass. Background vocals from longtime HoneyRun bandmates Eddie Cooper and Casey Morton round out the vocals, while a duet with Sarah Peasall of the Peasall Sisters brings Countin’ Pennies to life once more.

Make plans now to attend this event for some great music and helping a great cause.

Tickets are only $5.00
