Jim had a great love of music. He was playing guitar and singing in an old Rock n Roll band when he met the love of his life, Kathy. Later, he started playing Old Country Music. He was involved in many different bands over the years; being a gifted guitarist and singer. He wrote several original songs and was a member of the National Songwriters Association of Nashville TN.

Jim enjoyed having jam sessions and just hanging out with other musicians, sharing his knowledge of music.
