He immediately began spending his days working for the former johnnyraBB Drumstick Company and playing nights in the local club scene. In 2003, he began playing with country artist Aaron Tippin where he spent 3 1/2 years touring throughout the United States including an overseas tour to Kuwait and Afghanistan.
