Mike Snider

One of modern country comedy’s most widely used numbers, Mike Snider was immediately recognizable for his personal banjo abilities, distinctive Southern drawl, and myriad comic stories of his wife Sabrina, aka “Sweetie.” Created in Gleason, TN, in 1961, he received his 1st banjo at age 16, and quickly won several skill contests; at age 22 he also took home best honors on the Country wide Banjo Tournament. After debuting on the Grand Ole Opry, Snider made an appearance on TNN’s Nashville Today, where his unmistakable Tennessee highlight prompted gales of laughter in the audience; he shortly began pursuing humor full-time, and was a ensemble member on Hee Haw for seven periods. After gaining his Opry account in 1990, he started starring in Opryland’s The Mike Snider Present a year afterwards; he also documented several albums.
