Jimmy was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He spent the bulk of his music career as a utility player, covering fiddle, dobro, banjo, and guitar with the likes of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, Shawn Camp, Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts, Country Music Hall of Famer, Earl Scruggs, and Dolly Parton.

Jimmy has gained the respect of some of Nashville’s finest musicians. In the fall of 2013, he went in the studio to record his solo EP with the help of Guthrie Trapp and a lineup of other notable musicians.  Jimmy is putting the final touches on his solo debut coming soon this year.
