Born in Utah, and raised in sunny Southern California, Devin took a unique route to discovering his passion for country music. At ten years old he learned to line-dance at a smoky honky-tonk in Pioneertown, CA, where he was captivated by the sounds of Alan Jackson and other 90’s hit-makers. During his studies at Cal State Long Beach, he fine-tuned his craft as a storyteller and songwriter. You may have seen him on an episode of The CMT Singing Bee showing off his lyrical memory, or on Youtube where he won the Brad Paisley “Online Video Contest.” For the past four years, he has been volunteering at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas, escorting such artists as Keith Urban and Luke Bryan. Now a Nashville resident, you can usually find him attending local songwriter rounds or concerts downtown.
