Since moving to our area in 2009, Michael Lawsage has been hard at work connecting people to local businesses. He spent the last decade working for touring companies, driving and leading wine tours. His personable nature quickly spawned a nickname that’s become his calling card.
“I picked up these women from Dallas. I introduced myself as ‘Mike,’ and they instantly started screaming 'Magic Mike!' It’s something we’ve kept going,” he says. “It breaks the ice and it’s just kinda fun.”
Two years ago, he decided to go out on his own. With some help from his son Drake, Driven ATX was born. Drake handles the legalities and marketing so that Michael can focus on doing what he does best: entertaining people.
The company’s new Mercedes Benz Sprinter seats 14 and is available for rides all over Central Texas. “When we pick people up and take them to Fredericksburg, people start as acquaintances and they end up as best friends,” says Mike.
He also connects with people through music. He’s the founder and singer for the Above the Law band, playing shows across Dripping Springs. Mike and his band give back to the community through monthly performances at Hill Country Nursing and Rehab Center. “It’s all charity work, and we love it,” Mike says.
Mike is thankful for the community that’s helped him grow his business and entertain friends, both new and old.

“My life is just unbelievable, and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier outside of the birth of my son. Life is great."
