Tom Bukovac is an American session musician.

Bukovac began playing guitar at age ten, and started playing his first shows at age thirteen. He grew up in Willowick, Ohio and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1992, where he found work playing for Tanya Tucker, Lionel Cartwright and others. He also toured with Wynonna Judd, but by 1999, Bukovac decided to stop touring and play as a session musician. He won the MusicRow Magazine Session Guitarist of the Year Award five years consecutively, and has earned a series of nominations from the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music (he won ACM Guitarist of the Year for 2008 and 2010).

Nashville, TN – November 21, 2013 – Trigger Hippy, a new creative collective of musicians, is excited to announce their debut EP.

Rounding out the group are lead guitarist Tom Bukovac, who co-produced the EP with the band, and bassist Nick Govrik.
