Jim Whitman has been enjoying great popularity around the world for many years. He has an impressive list of albums to his credit and is a Prolific songwriter.
Jim was inspired to take up the guitar when he heard the great songs of Elton Britt, Kenny Roberts, and of course of Slim Whitman.
Jim's voice has a wide range and an expressiveness which many singers find it hard to achieve.He also discovered early on,to his delight, that he too could yodel. ''You could say, it's in the blood'' You don't learn to yodel, it just comes naturally. It then has to be groomed,practiced and tailored to perfection.
Jim certainly has nurtured that sweet, smooth yodel over the years and it is a high spot on his live performances.
Jim holds to ''Guinness Book Of Records'' World Yodeling Records.
Many artists through the years have modeled themselves on famous Stars of Country Music but Jim is his own man and a big talent on his own right. He has established himself as a singer, performer and songwriter with an abundance of self determination.
With a string of successful albums behind him, scores of full houses wherever he appears, Jim Whitman has certainly earned his place in Country Music history.
An ever expanding repertoire ranging from traditional to modern country and a wide range of his own very successful Irish ballads are always in demand.
