Where do I start? Owner and manager of the Whisnants. I sing the baritone part and run sound from stage. I work alongside the Harper Agency to handle our booking. I work with Susan running UIA (our independent radio promotions business) putting together discs and dealing with artists about singles. And somewhere in between, I do my best to be a husband to Susan and Dad to Austin and Ethan.
