17 years on the road with Firm Foundation Quartet paved the way for Steve to stretch his wings on his own. With notable success with FFQ, Steve began dealing with the next step in what God wanted for him. In November 2016, Steve headed south to Nashville.
Quickly he was introduced to several people in the music industry and became a part of a great family of musicians at ICMA (Inspirational Country Music Association). With a brand new unreleased album in his hand called The Ride, produced by Donna King of Vertical Sky Music, Inspirational and Christian Country embraced him as if he was one of their own.
The first radio single, Angels By Another Name, was picked up by HLE radio in Jennings, Louisiana. The song quickly resonated with listeners and ICM fans around the globe. Angels found itself at the top of the charts by May 2017. With his
experience and God's blessing, the sky is the limit in this great stage of Steve's career. With Jesus Still Loves Me at radio, this song has started gaining momentum with listeners everywhere. Steve had put his foot forward to full time ministry, making personal connections with congregations and audiences everywhere.
