Ross was born and raised in the small town of Monterey, Louisiana. At fifteen years old, he started the band, “Wayside” with his cousin and some high school friends. The band gained a strong following throughout Ross’s high school and college years, playing venues across Louisiana and Mississippi. After graduating from the University of Louisiana at Monroe, Ross turned down multiple job offers to move to Nashville. After a month of living out of hotels Ross met singer/songwriters, Jameson Rodgers and Hunter Phelps who were looking for a third roommate. After less than a year of working part time jobs, evening and weekend writing, and playing writer’s rounds, Ross caught the attention of BMI’s Bradley Collins. A short time later, Ross signed at Big Deal Music. Ross is currently writing, recording, and planning show dates for his upcoming tour.
