Jerry first started playing guitar at the age of 14 but his real passion began at 19 when he found the Dobro and Lap steel. Jerry spent many years playing with his family in a traveling band, playing everything from Bluegrass to Country and Rock. In 1997 as a soldier in the US Army he became a part of the 101st Air Borne Division Country Band playing Lap steel. After his Honorable discharge from the Army, Jerry came home to Texas to play in a few area bands. After a few years he took a break from music to spend time with his two children and help share with them his love of the outdoors and Scouting. As the kids grew, he grabbed a hold of their growing interest in live music and it was pedal to the metal once again. Jerry added the pedal steel to the lineup and has totally submersed himself in the lifelong study of that great and beautiful instrument. Jerry has performed with Texas Lilly and the Next of Kin, Bubba Payne and Blue Denim, David Lavigne’s Wild West show, John Allen Band, Train Town, and the Logan Ryan Band. In Dec 2020 he found a home with the country rocking sound of the Keen Country Band.
