The Lord Had Other Plans …
From mid 2001 - 2006, Jamie became the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International (NSAI) coordinator for New Orleans which included teaching monthly songwriter workshops in the Music Department at Loyola University, New Orleans. Through this affiliation, and monthly trips to Nashville to write with Nashville songwriters came an opportunity of a lifetime … or so he thought.
In 2006, Jamie accepted the position as Manager, Agent, Tour Manager, Guitarist and Mandolin player for a Nashville Multi #1 Hit Songwriter which included tours in the United States and United Kingdom. While working on the inside circle of the Nashville country music scene, Jamie thought he was in the right place. But the Lord had other plans. Instead, Jamie was being called to write and record music to glorify God and His church! So the journey began! He has never looked back or regretted leaving the job in Nashville. It has been more fulfilling, more rewarding than a dozen #1 hit songs. The work Jamie is doing now is everlasting and has an eternal effect that gives proper glory and adoration to God.
