Jamie lives in Ripley, WV with his wife Rachel and their sons Austin, Jordan and Ryan where they faithfully attend Goldtown Community Church. Jamie grew up on a farm in Staats Mill, West Virginia, where he was surrounded by gospel, country and bluegrass music. Jamie received his instrumental talents from his father Jack, who was always playing the pedal steel guitar and Dobro, and his mother Bessie who spent her days singing around the house. Singing in church was a big part of his childhood. His mother and father, along with his two sisters, were always singing in the country churches or just around the house. Jamie accepted the Lord as his personal Savior when he was 10 years old.
For several years, Jamie traveled with Faithful Journey, a local southern gospel group based out of the Charleston, West Virginia area.
He loves to play the pedal steel guitar, Dobro, rhythm guitar, having assisted with the backup vocals in the past. Jamie now sings southern/country/bluegrass gospel. He is looking forward to continuing what he has been taught musically and to spread the Word of God the best way he knows how – through music.
