Bonnie started playing accordian at 8 years old, then the guitar at 18 and joined her first band at 21. She was married in 1973 and had 2 beautiful daughters. Bonnie and her husband started their own band right after they were married and played every weekend.
Bonnie's husband died in a car accident in 1981 but she couldn't stop the music, that's the one thing other than her precious Jesus and her little girls, family, and friends that held her together.
As well as performing at the Opry, Bonnie's presently playing at Senior Homes and other venues with a girlfriend in a piano, guitar and vocal duo.
