I’ve had a mic in my hand since I was 5. Mom says I came out of the womb speaking full sentences, so I think I made the right career choice! I’m a commissioned painter and a working musician, but I can’t jump rope or crack an egg.

LOVES: anything purple, fast cars, old trucks, reclaimed lumber, and Marty Stuart songs

AVERSIONS: spiders, bleu cheese, and splinters

When not on air, I love to play sports-based video games like MLB The Show and Madden.
I like to create myself as a player in MLB or Madden: 6'5 240 Ripped! Don't steal my dream!
I'm a lifelong Cleveland Browns, Guardians and Cavs, as well as an Ohio State, Big Ten fan!

Introducing Kicks a Night's newest member, Barbara!

I grew up in Clarksville, TN - just outside Nashville. I was lucky enough to grow up immersed in the world of country music. As a teenager in the 90s, I once stood in line for 12 hours to meet Garth Brooks. He was awesome, but my mom thought I was insane! Yes, I’m still a music dork. In my free time I volunteer with animal rescues and dream about traveling the world. I have 2 little rescue pups named Mazikeen and Bernice. As Bob Barker would say, “Spay and Neuter your pets!” and “Adopt, don't shop!”

Your weekly dose of Inspiration with John Ritter

John has been directly involved in the music business since he was a young child. At eight years old and before ever having a voice lesson, he was singing in church and talent contests. His natural-born musical ability continued to improve during high school, where he played the bass guitar and sang with several local bands. After attending Saint Petersburg Junior College, he received his master’s degree in speech pathology from the University of South Florida.

Rise Up Country’s mission statement is to tell people not to give up, that God loves them, and there is hope. John likes to say it’s where we get our weekly dose of inspiration and a message of hope. John wants to see families stay together, and as a proud dad, one of the most important messages he hopes to convey is to love your children. John knows how precious family can be. He and his wife almost lost their son, Johnny, to a violent attack, so they’ve learned to appreciate every moment with their children and the power of prayer.
