The Kingsland, Georgia native got his start in the music scene by running the Tifton, Georgia music venue, The Gin. Originally it was more of a DJ scene, but Groover decided to start booking more country artists like Sam Hunt, Florida Georgia Line and Cole Swindell. In 2014, Groover starting working as tour manager for Jon Langston. With the intention of wanting to get into the publishing world, he moved to Nashville in 2017 making hot dogs during the week and touring with Langston on the weekends. After being a Nashville resident for one year, JD joined the Sea Gayle team. Some fun facts about JD are that he is sponsored by Miller Light, can make a killer hot dog and can do an amazing Luke Bryan impression. You can find him at Sea Gayle or Bojangles because "it's always bo time."
