Joe's talents developed quickly and his eagerness to please a blue collar crowd was apparent from the first time he stepped on a stage. In July 1991, at the age of 16, he won the talent competition at the old Stonewall's in Norcross Ga. He was then asked to perform there on a weekly basis over the next year. Throughout the years Joe has had to opportunity to share the stage with some of the biggest names in country music including: Tracy Lawrence, Rick Trevino, Gene Watson, Ricky Van Shelton, and T. Graham Brown just to name a few. Those shows were great but not enough for this cowboy. Joe didn't rest and continued to refine his craft both onstage during his performances and off stage with his song writing.
Before long, Joe was ready to take everything that he had learned and get it on tape. He began to collaborate with his friend Lee Davis who ran the independent label Rogue Records. Together the two put together Joe's first full length studio cd, This One's Gotta Be Right. Its traditional country sounds are rarely heard these days yet the message of a simple, honest, and hardworking life ring true. His second album, I Wanna Ride, was released in 2012. Both are available for purchase on CD, iTunes, and Spotify.
