Tim Goodin is a "Son of Appalachia," he's also an independent singer/songwriter straight out of the Hills of South East Kentucky. He grew up wandering the hills and "hollers" of the Appalachian landscapes. It is here his love for music began.

"Tim is known for his authentic straight shooting country sound with hints of Bluegrass and Americana."
