Buddy was born and bred in Macon, Georgia, and began playing music to local audiences by age 10. His first big break came with an invitation to join Jerry Reed’s band, and shortly thereafter made the move to Nashville. After touring the country, recording, and making numerous TV appearances with Reed, Buddy was given the opportunity to record an album of original gospel music which quickly brought him to the attention of gospel greats Bill & Gloria Gaither.
Through touring with the Gaithers and appearing on their Homecoming video series, as well as continuing to write and record his unique brand of gospel music, Buddy has built a solid reputation as a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and talented performer with a distinct southern flavor. His virtuosity on the harmonica has distinguished him as an instrumental force to be reckoned with.
Buddy’s songwriting has gained him recognition as well, especially as the co-writer of the Christmas favorite, “Mary, Did You Know?”, recorded by many of today’s top recording artists. Buddy’s outstanding performances have taken him from Macon, GA to New York’s Central Park, music festivals, concert halls, churches, pickin’ parties of every kind, and even Carnegie Hall.
