Mike Loudermilk has been making music most of his life. He started his musical career when his ?rst song, an instrumental, was recorded by guitar legend Chet Atkins, who invited him to Nashville to play on the session. Atkins offered then to sponsor him in Nashville, but approved of Mike’s decision to return to Louisiana and ?nish his education in music theory and guitar. Mike made his way back to Nashville where he began playing music full time. He has toured, recorded, and/or written songs with artists from John Schneider to Crystal Gayle, and from Tracy Lawrence to Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. As an artist, he has recorded several albums internationally...including a duet record, "Wildwood Flower," with bluegrass ?ddle legend Buddy Spicher. He has performed on numerous television shows and specials and has played on world stages from the London Palladium to the Crazy Horse Saloon, and from the casinos of Las Vegas to the White House. Mike worked with Crystal Gayle for many years and co-produced Crystal’s “Midnight In The Desert,” a song they wrote for the international radio talk show “Coast to Coast AM.” The song also won a NAMA (Native American Music Award) for “Song of the Year” in 2002. He is now concentrating on songwriting and producing at his studio "Nashville Sound Project House." There he has recorded, co-written, and arranged songs with some of Nashville's biggest hit songwriters. Mike has also performed at fund raisers for Aids and Cancer Research, National MS Society, and St. Jude Children Hospital (to name a few) along side of country music's most talented singer/songwriters. Endorsements with Taylor guitars, Elixir Guitar Strings, Fishman Transducers, Bill Lawrence, and KJL Ampli?ers point to his reputation as a "musician's musician," both onstage and through recording projects.
