Wyatt Putman, born and raised in the small town of Spring Hill, Arkansas, has a passion, and a love for country music. Not only is he inspired by Justin Moore, but has grown up listening to the true legends of country. Encouraged by his uncle, Putman picked up his first guitar at age 12. Not knowing his ability to sing and play until age 16, Wyatt realized the instant obsession and was more than ready to begin his own music career. As time passed, he became well known in the surrounding areas for his capability to sing, along with the drive to pick up a pen and a piece of paper at any given moment to write lyrics that apply to every day country life, and the gift to bend a guitar string. Wyatt says, “All my life, it didn’t matter if I was going 5 miles down the road, I couldn’t spin tires without spinning Justin Moore, Hank Jr., or Waylon Jennings on the radio. I just love music that much. I cannot wait to begin the journey of making it in the music industry. Many doors are opening, and my dreams are coming true." #frankfoster #eldomad Frank Foster Music #eldorado #arkansas Spring Hill, Arkansas Hope, Arkansas #country #countrymusic #countryartist #cma #concerts
