BIG COUNTRY / Bio

Born to Thomas Fillmore, JR and Carole L.Russi 11-30-1972 in Pittsburgh,PA. We moved to Florida in the late 1970's. My parents divorced in 1981. It wasn't until the mid 1980's where my step father Joe B. Dempsey was a huge influence on me in country music. At the time there was an old radio station 620 Sun Country on the AM dial. I fell in love with artist like David Allen Coe, Moe Bandy, Mickey Gilley, Hank Williams, Jr. just to name a few. I was playing in the bars at age 20, I had my own bad, Big Country and the South Tampa Outlaws. I married to Jenny L. Cook, June of 1993 where we had 3 beautiful children, Thomas, Justin and Adam. Unfortuanlly Justin passed away in Aug 1999, He will be missed. My oldest child is Gabriel, I never married her mother but have nothing but love for her. My marriage from Jenny had ended several years ago. I thank her for my beautiful babies and wish her the best of luck in the future.I never learned how to play the guitar, I've just recently purchased an Limited Edition Micheal Kelly Guitar, a beautiful Spaled Maple. Over the years I've got away from bands and enjoyed writing songs, I have to my credit over 55 songs today 01/18/2013. I just want to write music. I will continue writing and trying to get my style of music on country radio. Thanks for reading. Yee Haw.... " Write a song with me "
