He got a real perspective of life on the road, responsibilities of a band member, and what it takes to pursue a passion in bluegrass. During his time with Michelle, he also recorded for many successful bands completing some free lance studio work. He played with Michelle for three years before God opened up the window of opportunity to play with IIIrd Tyme Out. Justen and Melanie got married on January 22, 2005.

He considers it a blessing to now be a part of the 3TO family! Justen trains and competes nationally in protection sports with his German Shepherds when he is not touring with the band.
