Tom starting learning guitar at 8 and spent his youth playing Bluegrass music. Around 2007 Tom started commuting to Nashville and eventually met up with writers with Better Angels Music who encouraged him to make the leap and move to Nashville as a writer. In 2010 Tom moved to Nashville, shoeing horses to pay the bills and co-writing afternoons to further his music career. Along the journey Tom has had songs cut by Texas artist Cody Riley (produced by Wade Bowen), Chancey Williams (produced by Trent Willmon), Rob Snyder and Bransen Ireland. In addition, he has written with talented Nashville songwriters Bransen Ireland, David Adam Byrnes, Cody Webb, Curtis Grimes, and Matt Willis. "I'll always love Alabama, but my heart found its home in the hills and farms around Nashville. The friends Ive made telling stories through music, are family. We celebrate our victories and shoulder our burdens together. I'm incredibly fortunate to have a such a great Tribe."
