Johnny Staats

Johnny Staats first burst on the national scene in 2000 with his critically acclaimed release, "Wires & Wood". Johnny was profiled by sources ranging from People Magazine, The New York Yimes, CBS Evening News w/ Dan Rather, Paul Harvey, CNN and The Today Show, just to name a few. He and the Delivery Boys have appeared several times on WSM's Grand Ole Opry and continue to tour when Johnny is not driving the big brown truck for UPS. Johnny's command of the mandolin is astounding.

His influences range from the traditional bluegrass sound of Bill Monroe to the sophisticated classics of Mozart, with jazz, swing and newgrass all mixed in with ultimate taste. Johnny resides in his native Jackson County, WV with his wife Lori and their two daughters, Jessica and Hannah.
