His 2008 album Learn to Live spawned several singles that made the number one spot on the Hot Country Songs chart, the first black artist to manage this since 1983.

He continued this success by being the first black artist to win the New Artist Award from the CMA and released a second hit album in 2010.

He’s currently working on what will be his fifth album in the country genre, but he is also keen to find new talent.
