Biography

MARTY STUART once remarked…”Clinton Gregory is the finest country singer on the planet “.

SAMMY KERSHAW says of Clinton…”What A GREAT country singer”.

Born in Martinsville, Virginia, Clinton Gregory came from a long line of fiddle players. He picked up the fiddle at five years of age, making his performing debut at bluegrass festivals within a year. He came to Nashville at age 12, where his father was playing at the Grand Ole Opry. Clinton was highly encouraged by the greatest influence in his life, his father Willie Gregory, a fourth generation fiddle player who died in 1992. Clinton says of his father, “He taught me to play fiddle tunes the way they were originally written, some 200 years ago. My father had a major impact on my understanding of music, says Clinton. Throughout his youth, Clinton found little else but the fiddle kept him on the straight and narrow and could often be found pickin’ and grinnin’ alongside his father in venues throughout the south. The last time Clinton and his dad played, publicly together was an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry. “Now that’s a memory that will stir the soul, hold you, and never, ever let you go”, says Clinton.

Once in Nashville, he was quickly hired as fiddle player for Dennis Robbins, the McCarters and Suzy Bogguss, often winding up on the road for more than 200 days a year. Clinton’s quiet, reserved nature kept many from quickly learning what may be his greatest gift……an incredibly, true, pure, and moving country voice. Combine his amazing fiddle skills, guitar mastery and a country voice straight from the heart, and you will find the classic example of a pure country music artist with the finest of God given talents.
