Born in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, this singer/songwriter grew up listening to Merle Haggard, George Jones, Hank Williams and Marty Robbins. In the early eighties, Spiker formed a country group called L-Passo. The band toured throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and Virginia. During this time, Spiker also performed at various jamborees, including Jamboree USA. While there he worked with Loretta Lynn, Bill Anderson and Marty Robbins. In the early nineties, Spiker decided to pursue songwriting full-time and relocated to a suburb of Nashville. He hooked up with fellow songwriters, including Keith Norris and Karen Pendley. He also has songs recorded by Barry Lee White among others. In 2001, Spiker entered the studio to record his debut album. The album, My Future Ain't What It Used To Be, was released in July 2002.
Born and raised in East Tennessee at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and now based in Nashville. Tennessee will always be home sweet home to me.
My heroes have always been cowboys
Heavily influenced by the outlaw country movement of the 1970's. Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Merle Haggard are my influences, I picked up a guitar because of Johnny Cash, the first song I ever learned was one of Waylon's. I even married my wife on March 1, 2019 which is 51 years after Johnny Cash married June Carter on the same day in 1968. Those guys are timeless and their influence will live forever.
I’ve got something to say and I’m going to say it.
First and foremost I am a songwriter. Good or bad I’ll let you decide but all of my songs are truly an extension of me. I write about things that happen in my life or those around me especially my family and friends. I write about Jesus because I am nothing without his grace. I write about my wife because she is what makes my world go round. To quote the late great Waylon Jennings "He'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold". I'm living proof that nothing is more true than that."
