John Hannum (a.k.a. Bull) was born in Dallas, Texas. Weighing less than five pounds, John already started facing some of life’s tough challenges. The old adage,Time heals all certainly rang true for this early star! Currently he stands 6’1″ tall and weighs over 200 pounds. John matriculated from Texas Christian University, where he obtained a Fine Arts Degree as well as a Marketing degree.
It was known to most who met John that he was naturally gifted as a musician and an entertainer. Descending from a family with dominant musical genes, John’s mother was a gifted concert pianist and had a strong passion for music, which transcended into John’s life. Music became a powerful force, which really compelled John’s creative nature to move in different directions. From singing ballad style with Barry Manilow in college, to belting out the National Anthem at a professional baseball game, this creative genius co-produced his first Texas country album in 2004 titled “Ozona Shooter” (available on iTunes). Writing his own lyrics, composing his songs, and singing them too, John has a relentless passion for music.
John is married and has a beautiful son, Matthew, who has displayed a healthy interest in Daddy’s musical instruments! WATCH OUT Daddy, this little entertainer LOVES to be the center of everyone’s attention! John’s dedication to his family and friends is astounding. He has a passion for many things outside of music. However, he continues to write music, play the piano and guitar, and has recently recorded his second album in Nashville, TN.
