American Farmer

Meet Leon Venerable!

Born the son of a preacher, Leon has lived most of his life in and around North Alabama. Leon started playing guitar at age four and was on stage at his church by the time he was six. By age fifteen, Leon was playing in garage bands that he helped start. He started writing songs at sixteen, about the same time he discovered roping.

With these loves and the support of family and friends, this singer/songwriter set off on one wild journey. Leon’s hobbies include hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family and friends.

Leon has three videos on Famecast, "American Farmer", "Simple Southern Man", "Racin' Fan" and a great video profile. Click the link and enjoy the videos.

By-the-way, Famecast is a competition so log in and vote for Leon! His videos are also seen on RFD-TV, a cable channel out of Nashville. Don't forget to visit Leon's MySpace.

Keep up the great work, Leon!
