Just after graduating high school he helped form the East Tennessee band Blue Moon Rising in 2000. Justin then went on to become a founding member of the band Sierra Hull & Highway 111, performing with Sierra in 2005. Justin released a solo instrumental CD Dusty Roads in 2006. He spent time with bands Blue Moon Rising and NewFound Road in 2006 and 2007 and more recently with the Dan Tyminski Band. Justin made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2008, and has become an in-demand session player.
