Executive Board Expands Adding Puxico's Tom Hemby

The Cardinals Legacy Foundation for Baseball is proud to announce the addition of Tom Hemby to our executive board.

Grammy award winning guitarist Tom Hemby is from Puxico, Missouri

Tom Hemby grew up playing, but not baseball. He started playing guitar at age seven. He was a natural and yet that wasn't enough for his dad, he pushed Tom past the natural into the practice-makes-perfect world. #practiceMakesPerfect


Over the years, Hemby's talent and work ethic propelled him into one of Nashville's elite musicians and go-to guitarist for the likes of Glen Campbell, Amy Grant, Yolanda Adams, Michael W. Smith, Chaka Khan, Garth Brooks, The Gaither Vocal Band, Kenny Loggins, Wynonna Judd, Israel & New Breed, Faith Hill, Brian McKnight, and Andy Williams. In Hemby's house sits 1 Grammy and 4 Dove awards including Instrumental Album of the Year in 2004 for An Acoustic Christmas with Tom Hemby. #albumOfTheYear #instrumental #GrammyAward #DoveAward #GlenCampbell #AmyGrant #YolandaAdams
