AMAZING rags to riches story: Originally from south Texas, Johnny and his family were migrant farm workers traveling all over to pick crops. The first person to graduate high school in his family, Johnny went on to become a Master Electrician - running his own company at 23… all the while playing killer guitar, evenings and weekends. Besides being Trisha Yearwood’s lead guitar player and MD for 28 years, he’s been Garth’s lead player for 19 yrs, owns an active publishing company, produces other artists, and has a variety of other diversified investments
GREAT stories including moving to Nashville and the obstacles involved in his rehearsal with Tricia, living in a 10 x 10 shack with no running water or electricity, playing solo at Yankee Stadium and seeing the spirit of his later father, his cool vintage Strat, being gifted THREE vintage strats in 3 successive days (almost unbelievable), family, construction, and LOADS more cool stuff - a MUST listen!
