Born and bred in Macon, Georgia, Buddy Greene benefited at an early age from the influences of a town and culture that produced the likes of Little Richard, Otis Redding, and the Allman Brothers Band. By age 10 he began playing to audiences around Macon and quickly established himself as a local talent worth watching.
Buddy’s first big break came with an invitation to join Jerry Reed’s band, and shortly thereafter he and new bride Vicki moved to Nashville. After touring the country, recording, and making numerous TV appearances with Reed, Buddy was given the opportunity to record an album of original gospel music which quickly brought him to the attention of gospel greats Bill & Gloria Gaither. Through touring with the Gaithers and appearing on Gaither Homecoming Series, as well as continuing to write and record his unique brand of gospel music, Buddy has built a solid reputation as a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and talented performer with a distinct southern flavor. His virtuosity on the harmonica has distinguished him as an instrumental force to be reckoned with.
Buddy’s songwriting has gained him recognition as well, especially as the co-writer of the Christmas favorite, “Mary, Did You Know?”, recorded by many of today’s top recording artists, including Clay Aiken, Kathy Mattea, Kenny Rogers & Wynonna, Natalie Cole, Glen Campbell, and Kathleen Battle, to name a few.
Buddy’s outstanding performances have taken him from Macon, GA to Billy Graham crusades, music festivals, concert halls, churches, pickin’ parties of every kind, and even Carnegie Hall.
