Joey Pruett joined the band in 2009 after the 2nd Hungary Tour. He was on the 3rd Hungary tour in 2010 and all subsequent foreign country trips as well as all the local and regional band appearances since then. He plays bass and sings harmony. He is our sound man. He recorded and mixed our last CD which is currently in art work stage. He can be heard playing and singing on band recordings since 2010.
When Joey was about 5 years old his dad and some of his dad’s friends started getting together to play country, bluegrass, and gospel music and eat homemade ice cream. It was at these Hootenannies that Joey learned to play several instruments.
He started playing in Rock n Roll bands in high school. He swore he would never play that old music again.
He was fortunate to perform with some of the best bands in the area. And later got into production working with the great legends from Willie Nelson to Loretta Lynn to Reba McEntire.
Then one day he met Doc Monroe and Doc said they were in need of a bass player.
Little did I know that God was setting me up to play that OLD MUSIC AGAIN. A lesson here- Never Say Never when God is in the equation.
