Dusty Workman began his musical journey at a young age. Always intrigued by music, Dusty's first taste came when he received his first drumset for Christmas at age 10.  Dusty's ability to play music by ear and pick up the drums quickly led him to a life filled with musical experiences.

After playing in every opportunity available in countless bands and eclectic musical styles, Dusty began to reach some of the professional goals he had dreamed of from a young age.  Dusty was fortunate to be able to work behind the scenes doing lighting and other jobs for artists like Barbara Mandrell, Kenny Rogers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Willie Nelson, and many others.  But the desire to be "ON" stage not behind it was pushing him forward.

Dusty's life as a drummer flourished when he and friend Jim Bush started the country music group Dixie Road.  With four Nashville produced CD's, an opportunity to sing at an event with President Bush, being on several million cd's that were included in the ISC / NASCAR race programs in 2001, a couple of videos and sharing the stage with many of the top country music artists in the industry like Keith Urban, Willie Nelson, Shania Twain and many more. It seemed that Dusty had finally reached the success he had longed for.

Workman quickly realized that all of the big shows, publicity and accomplishments were fun and successful by the "world's standards", but they didn't mean anything for the Kingdom of God!

"While I was successful from a worldly view, I realized that I was lax in holding my faith and my family as my first priority. I realized I had to reprioritize my life and focus fully on my Lord and savior Jesus Christ, to do his will and to lead my family in serving God first!"

After walking away several years ago from the fast rising country group, Dusty now uses the musical talents God has given him to proclaim the Gospel through his Christian music ministry.  Currently Dusty serves as the worship leader at Grace Community Church and has redirected his music for one purpose...Glorifying God!!  Dusty Continues to look for any opportunity to share his music and testimony anywhere God leads him.

"The music keeps calling and my passion and my heart keeps telling me that I must continue to reach out and help people who are lost by sharing my testimony through my music and my experiences."  Dusty released his first Award winning Christian CD, "Let Me Get the Door" in 2005 and added 4 new songs to that album.

In 2010, Dusty joined to form another music ministry called "Evidence of Journey" (see EOJ tab below) with award winning singer/songwriter and long time producer and friend,  Eddie Kilgallon in which the two share their journey in music, how their lives crossed and the testimony of two musicians, two different roads, and how they ultimately landed on the same purpose...using their musical gifts to glorify God.

"My purpose is to use the musical talent God has given me to create music and to use it as a vehicle to share the Gospel to those who may not know Jesus Christ, so that they can know what amazing things are possible with the love and grace of God."
