Nicknamed "Big Country" by his friends, Michael has an impressive country/Southern rock style. He is the quintessential cowboy who loves fishing and riding horses and is a third-generation law enforcement officer. Michael was drawn to country because of the stories the songs tell, and he counts Toby Keith, Bon Jovi and Tim McGraw as his biggest influences. Follow Michael on Twitter at @MAustinCountry.
