I went to high school with him, we graduated together. He recently opened up ACL this year and is blowing up. Check out his album Fireworks on ITUNES. He's an interested blend of music genres; I call it alternative/country.

His production was helped out by the guys on the Pat Green Band; so he definitely has connections and is going places!
