What's Going On

Playing The Iconic Mike Auldridge Guitar 

Certainly a bucket list item for me. I had seen and heard this iconic guitar on many records/CDs  during my life. The first time when I was only 11 years old. I finally got to play it for the first time during the IBMA. Bucket list item !

2019 IBMA "Resonator Guitar Player Of The Year" 

Well......I am a little late announcing, but as of September 26th, I was voted IBMA "Resonator Guitar Player Of The Year". This came as a huge shock to me. I had just got the news 1 week earlier that I was in remission after return of my cancer this past Summer which almost took my life. I am now a 5-time survivor. Winning the IBMA Award was just icing on the cake. Turned a bad year into a great year for me. God has been good to me.

The Allstar's Of Bluegrass In Studio 

Phil Leadbetter And The Allstar's Of Bluegrass has started on their first debut CD for Pinecastle Records. Phil has recorded 7 CDs with them over the last couple of decades. Project is being recorded at Eastwood Studios in Cana, VA with engineer Wes Easter. Looking forward to get our first band recording out. We have some great material. Stay tuned.
