Ricky's musical roots began in North Alabama at the age of five the first time he picked up a set of drum sticks. He began playing for a living by the age of twelve and soon learned that he could work twice as much if he played the guitar and sang in addition to being a drummer.
His music eventually sent him on a journey around the country and around the world.
For over four decades Ricky has played and toured with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Gregg Allman, Michael McDonald, Curtis Mayfield, and Col Bruce Hampton.
Ricky has been a session player in some of the most coveted studios in the music business and performed in some of the most well known venues in the world including opening for Phish at Red Rocks.
His heart and soul would somehow always be led back to Nashville. It's in Nashville where the journey continues.
