Logan Mize’s life story has more twists and turns than the rural Kansas backroads he grew up traveling
Trying to get all of Logan Mize’s backstory straight is a little bit like herding cats. But it makes for some great songwriting material.
It involves stories about him living in his Suburban, Justin Timberlake being a fan, his great uncle discovering Buck Owens back in Bakersfield, selling out 2,000-seat venues with no record label behind him, driving a dump truck, wooing his now wife with sushi and a bucket of chicken wings, filming a commercial with Hayden Panettiere, getting a smile and a nod from Merle Haggard during a performance and being named the tourism ambassador by the Governor of the state of Kansas.
All true stories. And there are more where those came from.
Growing up in the rural North Georgia mountains down a three mile dirt road, Jacob Bryant picked up his first guitar at eight years old. He was influenced by the Bluegrass music his family played and later the southern rock and traditional country music he discovered. As he got older, Jacob began playing in church where he served as leader of the youth group. Family and church jump started his interest in choosing a career in music. The singer/songwriter continued to hone his craft and took his show on the road after graduating high school. But It was New Year’s Day 2010 when his life changed forever. He was driving to Nashville when he got the call about his mom dying and his whole life fell apart throwing him into a long tail spin of depression.
