Steve grew up in northeastern Arkansas, the son of a Southern Baptist minister. He credits his musical family as his earliest musical influences. Steve began his career in Nashville, moved to Branson, where he was honored with the “That’s Show Biz” award, and finally landed in Myrtle Beach as the emcee of The Carolina Opry in 1992. After 19 years, Steve retired from nightly show business but has made several return appearances. He now makes his home in Tennessee with his wife. The entire cast, crew, and many fans welcome Steve back for another special Christmas season appearance.
