Carving out his place in country music, he has been touring across North America with Lee Brice, Chase Rice, Nickelback, Brantley Gilbert, and Bailey Zimmerman.

“Make-A-Wish Arizona is deeply honored to be selected as a beneficiary of Rock the Rooftop Charity Concert,” says Fran Mallace, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Arizona. “The support we receive from this event creates a meaningful impact in the lives of our wish kids, empowering Make-A-Wish Arizona to fulfill our mission of bringing joy, hope, and transformative wishes to children with critical illnesses.”
