In 2006, Garner won the Academy of Country Music’s “On-Air Personality of the Year” Award in the national category. He also won this award in 2004 when the national and local categories were combined. Garner’s popularity is attributed to him keeping his show fresh and entertaining with guests such as George Strait, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, Taylor Swift, Brooks and Dunn, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Lonestar, Alan Jackson, and Keith Urban.
Garner started his radio career in Canyon, Texas, later moving to Dallas to work at KAFM-FM, then to Washington, D.C.’s WASH-FM. From there, he moved to Houston to work at KKBQ-FM. Months later, WPLJ-FM in New York recruited Garner as their afternoon-drive host, where he was named among the top ten most-listened-to disc jockeys in America. Garner then moved to the West Coast and worked as the afternoon-drive personality for KIIS-FM in Los Angeles. After having ratings success in five of the top 10 markets, Garner created After MidNite, which was purchased by Premiere Radio Networks in 1997.
This Canyon, Texas, native graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in Advertising. Garner and his family reside in Nashville, Tenn. He prides himself in his car collection. He bought his first car when he was 12 years old and, to date, has owned and renovated more than 70 cars.
