    Tough Talk Christian Radio - Gospel Music as a Medium for God's Word

    Tough Talk Christian Radio - Gospel Music as a Medium for God's Word

    Tough Talk Christian Radio with Host Tony Gambone and Special Guest Jim Huddleston:

    Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Jim Huddleston grew up in a small mobile home park and was exposed to a wide variety of music through his father’s involvement in local country music bands. It was his love for music that led him to pursue a career in the industry, and after school, he could often be found jamming with musicians in his father’s barbershop.

    In 1985, Jim met his future wife, Alicia, and soon after enlisted in the military. After being reunited with Alicia in 2018 and with her unwavering support, Jim returned to his passion for music in 2020. Now, he is ready to share his unique sound and powerful message with the world.

    Inspired by his faith and experiences as a disabled veteran, who suffers from PTSD, Jim’s music is a reminder of the enduring power of the American spirit. He says, “America needs a voice now more than ever. Why shouldn’t that voice be ours?”
