Fred was born in Fayetteville, NC and now calls Lillington, NC home with his wife Michelle and their two dogs Ruby and Shadow. He has been involved in music since a very young age and can not remember when he was not involved in music. His family traveled and sang southern gospel music and recently retired after more than 30 years. At the age of 14 Fred decided he wanted to play bass guitar after buying Alabama's Mountain Music album. Instruments were readily available at the Burgess household so he pulled out a bass guitar and taught himself how to play. He played on a full time basis for a southern gospel family group called The Ruppes (now Sisters) right after high school and later played for the Dixie Melody Boys. Fred states his inspiration in music is his parents. When he's not playing, he enjoys hunting, fishing and restoring his 1957 Chevrolete Belair. Fred is enjoying being a part of the Live @ The Rudy. "Everyone here treats you so well. It's like being around family. There is so much talent in this theater and working with singers and musicians of this caliber is a God sent. I am humbled to be a part of this family and plan on sticking around for a good long time."
