Born and raised in Paducah, Kentucky, Holmes got his first guitar at the age of 15, shortly before his father passed away. It quickly became an outlet for him to deal with his father’s death and sparked an interest in songwriting. At the age of 18, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force as a Security Forces member and spent the majority of his 14 years of service as a weapons instructor. Holmes would take his guitar with him everywhere and often played for his fellow service members.

“Damn Addiction” was originally recorded in 2019,  when Holmes was invited to participate in ‘The George Jones Sessions’ in which Country Rebel filmed and recorded over 30 artists to share and promote on its platform.
