Early Years[edit]

During a recruiting trip to Oklahoma State University–Stillwater, he fell in love with the area and decided to attend college there and play for Oklahoma State Cowboys football. While he envisioned playing Quarterback for them, he was moved to the position of Defensive back.

Music career[edit]

One of his original songs, "Wide Open Places" was included on the soundtrack for the motion picture, "Sing For Their Supper" that goes to support Street Music Week in Spokane, Washington.[1] Joe King took a break from performing live, but has recently re-released his single, "Down In Stillwater Oklahoma" on major music streaming platforms, possibly signalling his return to performing live again.
