Jimmy Bivens recorded his first solo album "Tell The Story" in Nashville in 2005
The first time Jimmy Bivens played on a stage he had a three-member audience that couldn't even see him. "My friends and I went to visit my dad at a club. He told me I could get up on stage and play a song if I wanted," recalls Bivens. It was daytime and the stage was closed off behind a heavy velvet curtain. "I climbed up there and kicked out a version of an old Conway Twitty song with my buddies. I didn't think that anyone could hear us, but when we got done I heard a little bit of applause. I peeked out from behind the curtain and saw my dad, the clubowner, and Tammy Wynette."
