About the artist
Mickey Harris hails from Murfreesboro, TN. He grew up with a family rich in
Bluegrass heritage. His Grandfather is a dobro player with which Mickey began
playing with at the age of nine. He also joined The Tipton Family that included
his Grandmother Louise, her sister Sophie and her husband Carl. They had a
long running TV show in Nashville, TN for around 25 years, of which Mickey had
always been a part of since he was a baby.
Growing up around Nashville gave him a great chance to meet and play with
Bluegrass and Country Music legends. In his teens he started playing at
contests around the Middle Tennessee area. This is where he met numerous
young musicians and started a band with them called High Lonesome. This band
included Cody Kilby (who now plays with Ricky Skaggs) and Brian Blaylock (who
was with Larry Stephenson). From there he joined Tim Graves and Cherokee for
about a year, then went onboard with Larry Stephenson for 4 1/2 years. After
leaving that band, Mickey, Kristin Scott Benson and Sally Jones started the
group Sally Jones and the Sidewinders. He stayed there for 2 years and they
were nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year at IBMA. During this time he
became known not only as a harmony singer, but a lead vocalist as well.
Mickey joined Rhonda Vincent and The Rage in August 2002 playing Bass and
singing harmony. He is also featured on lead vocals as well during the shows.
His solid Bass playing and harmony singing are a welcome addition to the Rage.
