The Nashville String Kings I began my musical career at a young age living in the St Louis, Missouri area. While performing with my family's band, we worked at The Fabulous Fox Theater, The American Theater with Ginger Rogers, and the West Port Playhouse with Patrick Duffy from the TV show Dallas. We also opened for Tom T. Hall at the local fair and for The Sons of the Pioneers.

Later on I started working with a local Bluegrass group called Countryside Grass. We performed at many Bluegrass festivals and even won a SPIGMA Bluegrass award. I also won many fiddle contests, sometimes competing against musicians like Alison Krauss. At the age of 11, I won a Nashville Talent Search and was awarded a 45 record session with The Nashville Super Pickers and a write up in Billboard magazine. I also got a lot of air play on many radio stations.

Around this time I did shows with Grady Nut form Hee-Haw, fronted for Johnny Paycheck, performed with Ellie May Clampett from the Beverly Hillbillies, and won many other talent
shows in Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama.While I was in high school, we performed as The Bibb Sisters, working fairs and a few radio stations and withthe Jerry Lewis Telethons. We also were opening acts for Keith Whitley, Gene Watson, Charlie McClain, Boxcar Willie, and Little Jimmy Dickins. We also worked at Six Flags of America, Tennessee State Fair, The Midnight Jamboree, Silver Dollar City, Branson Missouri, and did shows with Ava Barbe from the" Lawrence Welk Show".

When I moved to Nashville I worked with two all girl bands, Pettycoat Junction and The New Coon Creek Girls. We performed at Bluegrass festivals, Renfro Valley Barndance Jamboree, and Silver Dollar City in Branson. We aired on the Good Morning America Show promoting Silver Dollar City and were published in Strings Magazine.

I later started working at Opryland Theme Park, and was aired on Sixty Minutes TV Show promoting Opryland. I have performed on The Grand Ole Opry and at Opryland Theme Park withsuch talents as, Jack Green, Jeane Pruett, Jeane C. Riley, Johnny Russell, Grandpa Jones, Mike Snider, Rhonda Vinent, and Wilma Lee Cooper. I have also worked at the Country Music Museum, Country Music Hall of Fame, General Jackson Showboat, the Ryman Auditorium, and the Opryland Hotel with John Swaim.

Ihave enjoyed many years in the music business and have had the pleasure of working with many wonderful and talented people. I hope to share a little of my past with you thru the music we perform asThe Nashville String Kings.
