About Tom Nix:
The excitement of Tom Nix's music career began just three short years after the start of piano
lessons. At the age of eleven, he was asked to play piano/organ at the prestigious Dodson's
Cafeteria in his hometown of Oklahoma City. This set the stage for an exciting career of music,
performing, and the love of meeting new people. "I was the richest kid in all of south
Oklahoma City, making 65 cents an hour, working 6 hours a week." (That was $3.90 a week, by
the way.) Quickly, word spread of this child protege, and people were coming from all over the state
of Oklahoma to enjoy the good food, and hear the wonderful music presented by this cute 79
"What a life it has been since then. I had no idea where those early days would lead."
Tom has performed for three prior presidents, and the King and Queen of Spain, and appeared on
the world's four largest Christian TV Networks. As a singer also, He was awarded first place in the

He was for seven years the "In House" performer for the Governor Of Oklahoma, The Honorable
