Zach Runquist, born and raised in the heart of Music City, knew at the age of 10 that music would be his lifelong passion. It was at that early age he was first exposed to the recording studio while working on the first record for the "Sons of Tennessee" - which consisted of his father and older brother. He intensely watched Bruce Watkins, a veteran session musician at work. "He played so many instruments", recalls Zach. "He would put one down and pick another up and play an overdub". It was through that recording project and watching the producer (Eddy Bell) and engineer (John Nicholson) at work that got him hooked. "I thought what they were doing was so cool and loved seeing the songs being taken from an idea to completion". Today, has been able to enjoy see those childhood dreams turn into reality and loves doing the same for other people.

His biggest influence into the music business were his parents, both accomplished musicians who started teaching and molding Zach into the person he is today both musically and personally. His mother wrote many songs while he was growing up and today he is an accomplished songwriter in his own right.

Zach has had the opportunity to perform and record with many artists. Some career highlights include performing with Symphony Orchestras across the U.S. with the Sons of Tennessee, performing on the Ryman Auditorium and Grand Old Opry Stages, and performing for our troops on USO tours both stateside and around the world.

He is currently touring with Craig Morgan on the Carrie Underwood "Play On" tour. He also produces records, writes songs, and does session work.
