Growing up in a musical family, Greg started playing the guitar at age 14 and took vocal lessons at the age of 21. After spending many years performing in local bar circuit Greg dreamed of moving to Nashville to pursue his musical career. The death of Greg's father in 2007 prompted Greg to take a leap of faith and head out to Nashville to follow his dreams. When Greg returned home, friends began approaching Greg telling him, "congratulations! You finally made it! Confused by these comments, Greg soon became aware that there was a fairly new country artist named Jason Aldean who Greg apparently looked like. Over the next 4 years, Greg got approached by the public asking if he was Jason Aldean. In 2011, when Jason Aldean hit it big with "Dirt Road Anthem" people really started to approach Greg.
