Logan Mize was born and raised in the small farm town of Clearwater, Kansas where his entire family owns and operates the town's only grocery store, Mize's Thriftway. Logan was a standout athlete at Clearwater High School where he won all-state honors as a football player, a wrestler, and as a sprinter. Although Logan started learning the piano at the age of 8 and continued lessons well into his teens, music was never considered as anything more than a warm-up method for the friday night football game. Logan will often joke, however, that Clearwater was probably the only school with a warm up tape playing Montgomery Gentry's "My Town", and Merle Haggard's "Fightin Side of Me".
After going on to play college football at Southern Illinois University, Logan picked up the guitar and started writing songs in his spare time. The summer before his Junior year at SIU he made a 4 song acoustic CD of some of the songs he had written to pass out to all his friends. The CD was a huge hit in his hometown, and all over the SIU Campus where you could drive to any given house party on a saturday night and hear Logan's voice and guitar over the stereo accompanied by a few hundred drunk college kids singing at the top of their lungs along to every word. At that point football practice and school unfortunately began to take a backseat to the new found music career. With trips to Nashville becoming frequent Logan made the decision midway through his Junior year to leave school and pursue music full time in Nashville, TN.
At the end of his first year in Nashville after working numerous odd jobs as a truck driver, bouncer at Coyote Ugly, a furniture delivery man, and a DJ on a party bus amongst various other odd jobs, Logan landed a publishing deal with, Hit Songwriter, Brett Jones at Wyoming Sky Music. He then began writing and performing full time having the opportunity to open shows for major country acts including Pat Green and Merle Haggard. In his first year he has penned the song "Mexicoma" which will be a single on Bucky Covingtons upcoming album. Logan also had the opportunity to play his distant cousin's, and Pioneer of "The Bakersfield Sound" Billy Mize's 80th birthday party in Bakersfield, California where he performed one of Billy's hits "Who Will Buy The Wine" for the birthday audience including Billy himself amongst various other Bakersfield Legends.
Three years into his Nashville arrival, Logan Mize is already establishing himself as a writer and as an artist. His live shows are packed with high energy, infectious melodies, and organic lyrics that are sure to keep audiences coming back for more. You can be sure to hear alot more from Logan in the near future. .
