Groce went to high school alongside fellow musicians such as B.W. Stevenson, Michael Murphy, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
Throughout the 1970s, Groce recorded a string of albums for independent record labels.
Groce was hired by the National Endowment for the Arts in the early half of the 1970s. The NEA dispatched Groce to West Virginia to work with children. It was this experience that inspired him to write the humorous song "Junk Food Junkie. The song was recorded live in Santa Monica, California at McCabe's. It quickly became a major hit in the United States, making it to Number 9 on the charts.
After "Junk Food Junkie," Groce recorded an album as well as a string of novelty singles. None of them attained the success of "Junk Food Junkie," unfortunately. Groce went back to working with children. He currently resides in West Virginia.

"The fact that the contestants are judged by their songs as well as their performances equally makes it very appealing to us," Groce added.
