The night Laid Back’s high school classmates went on their senior trip, heplayed his first professional bar gig. It was not his first show, as he had played bassin local bluegrass bands, but it opened the door to smoky bars and honky-tonksurvival. Overthe years he went on perform and record with many well-knownartist, often uncredited, as was the Nashville way.He has played with everyone from the Georgia Satellites to the KentuckyHeadhunters. Opening for Thin Lizzy and The Guess Who, recording atJohnnyCash’s studio as well as the now defunct Butcher Shoppe in Nashville (owned byJohn Prince and Sturgill Simpson) Laid Back has seen some things. LB served as amentor to a young Tyler Childers, who now has Laid Back signed on his HickmanHoller label. Mr. Childers has made several films with LB and included him in hismusic videos, as well as having him open a CD release show in New York Cityand open his sets at the Ryman Auditorium and Red Rocks Amphitheater.Over the years Laid Back has honed his craft and played simply for the loveof the music. His no rules approach to musical performance flies in the face ofthose who prefer their music to fit neatly into category. Equal parts Led Zeppelin,Waylon Jennings, Stanley Brothers, David Bowie and Motorhead, and that’s justthe beginning. Laid Back is a product of the 1970s when lines were often blurred.He doesn’t care what you call it, he just wants you to feel it. Attentive to theaudience and ready for conversation, a Laid Back show is an interactive lesson onmusic, pop culture and whatever else is on his mind that day.Whether he is playing with his full band or grinding out heavy guitar riffswith his companion Honey on drums in the White Stirpes inspired duo, you leavethe concert knowing you have seen a show. There will be a meet and greet andLaid Back will stand and talk until everyone is satisfied. Because it’s not just aboutplaying songs to an audience, it’s about a shared experience with his fellow man.Laid Back’s mantra is “playing country music and treating people right”. Hestrives to uphold that pledge every night.
