Growing up in the rural central Illinois town of Robinson, Gary is no stranger to hard work and pride in a job well done.  Playing a good traditional style  of country music is what Gary does.   Gary's high school music teacher gave  Gary music and voice training in opera and movie musicals like "South Pacific".  While she wanted Gary to study "Grand Old Opera", he was more  inclined to study the "Grand Ole Opry".After high school Gary went to college at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois.  While there he played in several local bands and was the  opening act for the Statler Brothers, Hank Williams, Jr., Stonewall Jackson, Waylon Jennings, and many other top country stars.
​Gary  obtained both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Religious Education.  Gary also taught classes and was Dean of Academics for Bible Way  Institute in Nashville.  Gary obtained a Doctorate of Religious Education degree from Warren Robbins University.
