It was during this time that he decided to pursue a professional career in music. He went on to be a member of Rhonda Vincent’s band, then Marty Raybon’s Full Circle, and eventually a member of Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out by 2006. Loudermilk already has two highly acclaimed solo albums under his belt as well as a recent collaboration recording with Dave Adkins.
