CHECK SONG DISPLAY TO REVIEW SONGS...Larry Joe is no stranger to Nashville or' the music scene. I think I was born with a pen and' a Guitar in my hand. The love for a song has always been there" ever since I was 5 years old. I first went to Nashville in 1977 after" I had released my first single record.I had just came of the road touring with' Riot out of Peoria Illinois. I was recording under the name Johnny Tree at that time. Ole' Magnolia and' Foxy was my first record. A record deal was offered becouse the songs did so well but' I coulden't except becouse of a nerve disorder from the Viet-Nam war.
I ended up in Printers Alley at the Crows Nest playin and' working at Lynbaughs as a waiter and' a dishwasher. Seems I,ve lived all over Nashville even' behind Shoney's at that telephone pole in a van next to the Hall of Fame Lounge. The journey has had its ups and' downs but' trying to be a songwriter don't" come eazy.
I got to play two parts in David Frizzell's video' (water Makes Her Cloths Stay On). I also co-write some with his brother Allen Frizzell and' Allen's wife Gayle and' I have written a song or two. I play the Wino and' Biker in the video. Also' featured is Charlie Wayne (Bulletboys) and' Kimberley Dahme (Boston)
I have three chart singles to my credit' recorded three albums and released three singles. The latest album was' "Jesse James" I have had 37 of my songs recorded. My first song recorded as a writer was "Love I Know" by' Kenny Parker. Tommy Dee and' I wrote "Honky Tonks & Swinging Doors. A hit for Steve Kramer. I have also' had Bluegrass and' Gospel songs recorded.
I,m from East Tennessee where I done a lot of Bluegrass' an x dis jocky (The cashman) father of the Appalachian Mountain Bluegrass Hoedown that was on the radio for seven years. I have met Ralph Stanley' Jimmy Martin' Blue Highway' The Osborne Brothers just to name a few. I have done some album release parties at the Ryman in Nashville for Rebel records and' met some great pickers and'' promoted a lot of Bluegrass. You might say I,ve spun about everone in the business on the radio.I have been playin Guitar for years (acoustic) and (electric).Now I,m living in North carolina where' I do most my writing. I spend a lot of time in Nashville also working with my Publishing co..Houston Valley Music Publishing.
I have been writing songs ever since I was a very young boy. I try to write all gerns becouse' as a singer songwriter I have played all kinds of music. I have had the pleasure of getting to write with some great songwriters. You can VIEW more at my website www.gunsofdixie.com
