Multi-award winning Singer/Songwriter and Bandleader Lonnie Spiker is the face of Texas-style country music in Nashville, Tennessee. He commands an incredible ability to weave honky tonk, western swing, and straight-up country music into a unique and instantly recognizable style. Growing up in Pennsylvania Coal Country, Lonnie had an AM Radio that would pick up distant stations at night. There he discovered Texas Honky Tonk Stations playing Johnny Bush, Ray Price, Mickey Gilley, Gary Stewart and many more of his heroes. These artists left an indelible mark on an impressionable youngster with a guitar. Deciding that Nashville was where he needed to be Lonnie packed up his life and his family and made the move to Music City. He spent the next several years on Broadway honing his craft as a bass player, guitarist, and singer and spending many more years writing with hit songwriters. Lonnie has taken all he has learned and fused it to create a unique and original sound that is fresh and exciting. For Lonnie Spiker and Unapologetically Honky Tonk, the future of country music is now and their future is bright.
Josie and Tinamarie are proud to induct Lonnie Spiker into the Independent Country Music Hall of Fame this year. When asked about their goals for the Independent Country Music Hall of Fame that they now own as a part of the Josie Network of Brands here is what Josie had to say, "During a past interview I had with the late legendary Mr. Ray Price I promised to help keep traditional country music alive and the Independent Country Music Hall of Fame is one of the many ways we do that. We feel Lonnie Spiker upholds all the values and the incredible traditional country music sound that we all love and cherish. We congratulate Lonnie Spiker and thank him for creating great country music."
