Johnny Smith

Johnny Smith played drums professionally with the Oak Ridge Boys and Travis Tritt, among others, before a group of investors approached him to help create the Songbirds Guitar Museum. Johnny was first asked to find the perfect city for the museum. In 2013, he traveled all around the states before finally suggesting Chattanooga, Tennessee. While working with David Davidson, who serves as curator, Johnny built the museum, brought in the impressive collection of guitars, and created the displays. Johnny also established the educational programs and tours—all designed to encourage music makers!
