Ryan Burdette was born and raised in Ashland, Kentucky. His love for drumming started at the age of two banging on his moms pots and pans. He got his first drum kit when he was eight years old, and he’s been a natural ever since. Through years of dedication, Ryan has evolved into an extremely talented musician with a passion that is never ending. He moved to Nashville in 2007 in hopes of making his dream a reality. Since then he has made his living as a full time professional musician working both in the studio and performing live on stage. During that time he has studied under Jim Riley (drummer for Rascal Flatts), and Rich Redmond (drummer for Jason Aldean) while perfecting his style and technique. In 2011, he became a member of Mr. Holland’s Opus organization raising money to support music education. He has also donated his time to perform for many cancer benefit concerts for young children and adults around the U.S. Today he tours with national recording artist Justine Blazer. He performs for thousands of fans every night. He recently opened for Capitol recording artist Josh Thompson. The tour also includes numerous live radio and TV performances. In every city he plays Ryan is always a fan favorite. He always takes the time to talk to each and every fan. The fans love it when he gives away his sticks at the end of the show and even autographs it. His humble personality, confidence and passion for the music is the winning combination for a lifetime of success.
