Snider began playing old-time banjo at age 16 after hearing a Flatt & Scruggs album.  Soon after, he became the Tennessee State Bluegrass Banjo Champion, then won the Mid-South Banjo Playing Contest. Snider’s popularity grew with appearances on The Nashville Network’s (TNN) Nashville Now alongside Ralph Emery, and as a cast member of the syndicated comedy variety show Hee Haw, which he joined in 1987.  In 1990, six years after his Opry debut, the legendary Minnie Pearl inducted Snider as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.  Snider continues to entertain Opry audiences in the comedic traditions of Pearl, Rod Brasfield, Jerry Clower, and others.
