Dennis has been a part of the music industry and Nashville scene since he began performing at the Opryland Theme Park in Nashville, Tennessee, when he was seventeen. Working with his band, The Silver Strings, Dennis toured the country. He later went on to join up with and become a feature part of many country artists’ shows, including artists such as Dolly Parton, Jerry Reed, Porter Wagoner, Bob Luman, and Jeannie Seely. He elevated his career when he became a member and music director for the Louisiana Hayride, which helped him land a major writing and recording position at Warner Bros. Records. Since his time at Warner, Dennis has continued to stay active in music and is currently working on new projects that keep him motivated to continually take his skills to new levels.
Interesting Tidbit of Information: Porter Wagoner gave Dennis the nickname, Haxaw, during a poker game. Dennis was continually besting every hand. A frustrated Porter exclaimed, "Man you're like a hacksaw! You'll cut anything!" The nickname has stuck with Dennis ever since.
