Jim Heep is an Owensboro resident with a really awesome job... he's a musician. Now, I may be a little bias because I've been lucky enough to have Jim play for me on occasion, but I feel like he's one of the best steel guitar players I've seen. And, I know that I'm not the only one who feels that way. Locally, he's played for myself, Insulated and Brasher Bogue, just to name a few. He's also had the pleasure of playing on country music's greatest stages, The Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman Auditorium. He most recently has been on the road with newcomer Chris Janson, but now he'll be taking the stage with a few country music legends.

Jim recently announced thru social media that he will be working with and playing for The Bellamy Brothers! Isn't that great?!? I'm so happy for Jim and his family, it's more than well-deserved! Congrats Jim... thanks for making Owensboro proud! Keep on rockin dude!
