A native of Colby, Kansas, Schultz moved to Nashville to pursue his musical ambitions and found inspiration and encouragement while working as a youth pastor. With the support of the congregation, he booked a show at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium. The show was a sellout, an unheard of feat for a fledgling artist that earned him a deal with Word Records.
Since then the Dove Award winning artist has become one of Christian music’s most acclaimed singer/songwriters. Schultz, now a resident of North Carolina, has also tasted success on the mainstream adult contemporary charts. It has been 10 years since Schultz sold out the Ryman Auditorium and embarked on this creative journey. It’s not always an easy road, but he has no doubt he’s exactly where God wants him to be.
