TRAVIS TRITT

More than 25 years after Travis Tritt launched his music career, the Grammy award-winning artist continues to sell- out shows, top sales charts and stay true and relevant to Country music fans across the globe. On the heels of sold-out shows throughout his solo acoustic tour and amid a heavy tour schedule that takes Tritt and his band across the country to play for packed out crowds, the Southern-rock influenced Country artist topped the SoundScan Top 200 Catalog Country Albums chart for 50 consecutive weeks. A Marietta, Ga. native, Travis Tritt is dubbed one of “The Class of ‘89,” which included Country music superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson; all of whom dominated the charts in the early ‘90s. Among his eleven studio albums and numerous charted singles are nineteen Top 10 hits, including “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde,” “Here’s A Quarter” and “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive.” His 25 year career has produced millions in album sales, two Grammy award wins and multiple No. 1 singles on the Country radio charts. On Nov. 18, Tritt is set to release a special live 2-disc CD and DVD, titled A Man and His Guitar – Live From The Franklin Theatre. For more information on Travis Tritt, visit his website TravisTritt.com and follow him on Twitter and Facebook.


RYAN COURON

Born in California, Ryan Couron is a natural country boy by God’s grace. When on stage, this 26-year-old melts his influences into a sound mixed with traditional country and southern-rock with a healthy twist of the new country music as well, contributing to the establishment of his strong fan base in the entire Arkansas area. Combined with his original songs, including the debut CD “Play What I Feel Like,” a comfortable and confident stage presence and strides toward a new direction, 2011 has been an outstanding year that has produced great progress in Ryan’s young career.

Ryan still resides in Benton, AR to take advantage of the resources country life has to offer. His musical style was influenced by such greats as: Chris LeDoux, Randy Travis, Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson and Hank Williams, Jr. He discovered his vocal talent in a peculiar month long experience at age 16, while attending a Catholic seminary for Gregorian chant classes in Pennsylvania. Ryan is a charismatic, raw talent dedicated to his musical career and his passion can be seen in how he meets and greets with his crowds, fans and friends.

CHRIS JANSON

The “Holdin’ Her” singer has written multiple top-charting hits including “Truck Yeah” (Tim McGraw), “That's How I'll Always Be” (Tim McGraw), “I Love This Life” (LoCash), and over 25 additional hit songs recorded by a long list of established artists. 

Janson has been nominated for multiple awards and won Country Song of the Year (“Buy Me a Boat”) at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Janson is currently featured in the Country Music Hall of Fame as part of the ACM Gallery. He plays every instrument on stage, and is best known for his signature harmonica playing.

Additionally, Janson has played the Grand Ole Opry more than 145 times to date, and made numerous television appearances including: The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, CONAN, The Today Show, ACM Awards and ACCA Awards.

DONICA KNIGHT

Sun-kissed sweet iced tea, vividly-colored autumn leaves, rowdy and raucous Saturday college football games and the magical warmth of the family-filled holiday season bring to mind images of down-home, small-town charm and laid back, easy living… A place where everybody knows your name and the best things in life are free. With her roots firmly planted in the rich clay of her Alabama hometown, just outside of Montgomery, acclaimed singer-songwriter and entertainer, Donica Knight embodies all of these images: part sassy “tomboy” and sports fanatic, part southern supermodel and sweetheart, and 100% driven, talented and seasoned professional. With the January 2016 release of her brand new EP, the aptly titled Can’t Buy a Southern Girl, Donica is showcasing her unique blend of Southern rock, country, blues and old East Memphis music.

BRANDON HENSON

Born and raised in the small town of Decatur, Alabama, Brandon Henson, early in life never visioned himself as a touring country artist. Growing up as any country boy would, Brandon enjoyed fishing, hunting, riding horses, playing sports, and racing motocross. Through his high school years, Brandon engaged in Football, as his favorite sport where he played Tight End/Wide Reciever, as well as being apart of the Mount Hope High School FFA team.

Upon graduation from high school in 2007, Brandon had no idea what his life and future would hold, as well as not knowing which way to turn for the next chapter. 

Starting at Calhoun Community College the following fall, Brandon studied the Basic Subjects of Business, before becoming a father to his son, Cayden Lane, in 2009. With the duties of juggling being a father, work-life and school, Brandon decided to post-pone his education and enter the industrial workforce full time. Shortly after the decision was made, Brandon welcomed his second child into the world, his daughter, Barkley Rae, whom was born in 2011. As life went about it's ways, Brandon was happy, full of joy and excitement, and loved being a father to his children. [READ MORE]

ABOUT AARON LEWIS

"Life is circular. Country just came back to me. It's like the acoustic thing. I did that before the band [Staind]. This is full circle because this was the first music I was ever exposed to as a child." --AARON LEWIS

"Life is circular. Country just came back to me. It's like the acoustic thing. I did that before the band [Staind]. This is full circle because this was the first music I was ever exposed to as a child." --AARON LEWIS

If you want to get to know AARON LEWIS, just listen to The Road. On his first full-length album, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist tells one story after another. Echoing traditional country, some of those tales are hilarious and heartwarming, while others are pensive and personal. Nevertheless, they're all equally powerful, vibrant, and unforgettable.  For Lewis, The Road continues to wind and surprise like it always has.

In 2011, the Staind frontman formally arrived in the country world with the release of his debut EP, Town Line. Highlighted by the success of gold-selling single "Country Boy" featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels, the seven-song EP reached #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #7 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Critical praise followed: PEOPLE’s Chuck Arnold said, "He proves to be a natural on nostalgic ballads like 'The Story Never Ends,’ (3/14/11)," while the ASSOCIATED PRESS’ Michael McCall wrote, “He injects a flavor of his own into a polished, commercial country sound in a way that could win over country fans who've never heard of Staind (2/28/11).”

Lewis also received two Academy of Country Music nominations for "Vocal Event of the Year" for "Country Boy" (for his work as artist and as co-producer) as well as two CMT nominations--one for "USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year" and another for "Collaborative Video of the Year."  Simultaneously, the music video for the single stirred similar fan fervor, surpassing 12 million views on YouTube and 3 million on CMT.com. After a whirlwind year, Lewis began working on what would become The Road in the fall of 2011.

In many ways, The Road brings things full circle for Lewis. In Staind, he has made an indelible mark on hard rock. The group has sold 13 million albums worldwide, yielding four consecutive top 3 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 as well as numerous radio hits. Their single "It's Been Awhile" also remains the most-played rock song of the decade. Still, this new chapter proves cyclical for Lewis, actually bringing him back to the first style of music he'd heard: country music.

Now, he's carrying on a tradition of storytelling and songwriting himself. "I'm really hoping the songs speak for themselves," he concludes. "I hope people hear the record and realize that this is all me. There's nothing more to say. I'm just writing songs like I have been for my whole career."

That's all he really has to do. For Aaron Lewis, The Road looks brighter than ever.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Shenandoah's #1 Single Church on Cumberland Road

When country music lovers talk about the greatest groups in the genre, Shenandoah is always at the forefront of any discussion. Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses”, “Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next to You, Next to Me” as well as such achingly beautiful classics as “I Want to be Loved Like That” and the Grammy winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss.

Today that legacy continues as original members Raybon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career. It all began when the guys got back together to perform a benefit concert for a friend battling cancer. “We saw how folks reacted,” Raybon says of the response to their reunion. “And then Jerry Phillips, son of legendary Sun Records producer Sam Phillips, said ‘You guys need to make a run at this. People still love what you do. You can tell by the reaction. There’s a lot of excitement in the air.’” [read more here].

We are very excited to welcome back the unbeatable energy that is Mustang Sally!

When you attend a Mustang Sally show, you are transported away from everyday life and into the world that Mustang Sally inhabits: a world where dancing on the bar is encouraged, and spontaneity is king. People are transformed from spectators into participants through interactive songs both edgy and poignant. Mustang Sally has performed alongside high profile names such as Montgomery Gentry, Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich, and Blake Shelton, in addition to being demanded worldwide as fair and festival headliners, receiving a standing ovation at the Kickin' up Kountry Festival in Thief River Falls, MN, and playing to sold out crowds at the Havelock Country Jamboree in Havelock, Ontario. 

They routinely perform over 200 dates a year, and have toured the U.S. from coast to coast, as well as Europe and Asia. The ladies have also been featured in Country Weekly Magazine and gave the magazine staff a private concert. “We enjoyed the hell out of the girls,” were the words of Larry Holden, Editor in Chief of Country Weekly. “What great gals—to go along with amazing vocals, outstanding lyrics and one of the tightest bands on the planet.” While the music of Mustang Sally appeals to all ages and walks of life, the girls take particular pride in writing songs that “tell it like it is” for women. 

Mustang Sally's dedication to their fans can be seen at every show; post-show autograph lines often look more like family reunions as the ladies joke and catch up with returning audience members.

Lead singer Tobi Lee puts it best: “We have the best job in the world, and without our fans, we wouldn’t work!”

Kevin Sport grew up in the small town of Greenville, Al and started singing and performing when he was in grammar school. His love for music and entertaining lead him to Nashville, TN where he worked as a songwriter and demo singer for two different publishing companies. Kevin experienced performing not only in Nashville but New York City and was on his way to seeing where his dream would take him. As life unfolded Kevin’s first attempt at chasing his dream didn’t turn out like he’d hoped. The stresses of life took a toll and he quit. He threw his guitar under the bed, stopped singing, and stopped writing and pursued another path. What Kevin realized later is at the heart of what he’s doing now. As life moved forward many events lead Kevin right back to the dream that was put in his heart from the beginning. Only this time, he wasn’t turning back. He was going to see it through because he was seeing it through a different set of eyes. Being in the right place is not a destination, it is a journey. It’s all about doing what was put in your heart to do in order to be a part of a bigger story as well as making the world around you better. Kevin is doing this through music and entertainment, and just like you, he’s seeing where his journey will take him.

Kevin's performance of Simple Man at the Spirit of Liberty.

Kevin wanted to produce a brand with this simple message. “The Right Place with Kevin Sport” has on guest who share their talent and/or story in a way that connects. The conversations and moments they share engage the viewer to think about themselves and the people in their life. Through our musical guest or special guest, or live performance, our passion is to not only to leave people entertained but
touched, inspired, and encouraged….Because, “When you are following your Dream, Your God given Dream, You are Always in The Right Place”.

See Kevin on RFDtv every Saturday at 4:00pm on his hit show, The Right Place with Kevin Sport. 

JUDGE TALFORD Progressive Americana Music

"Don't Stop Believin"

Every once in a while, a group of musicians will come together and the chemistry will just fall into place. Such is the case with this band from Bell Buckle, TN, Judge Talford Band (JTB). It is the collective goal of the band to make good music that they enjoy playing and that people enjoy listening to. The band takes the listener on a musical journey through time without leaving one’s seat. This is done with instruments that are traditionally considered bluegrass instruments, rich vocal harmonies with influences that span multiple genres, and an entertaining stage show. They have already received favorable reviews from the most important people in the industry, the audience.

The musical style of JTB is a product of the guys’ varied musical influences. With influences including Alabama, Alison Krauss, Dan Tyminski, James Taylor, Delbert McClinton, Dr. John, Jimmy Buffett, Dire Straits, George Strait and The Eagles, it’s no wonder that this band sounds so much different than most traditional bluegrass bands. Although the band does perform several crossover songs, they should not be mistaken for a cover band. Each song is treated to the band’s ecclectic musical interpretation. They have a way of taking any song and making it their own. They also perform several originals written by members of the band, as well as others.

JTB has appeared on several nationally televised shows. The first, “Song of the Mountain,” is viewed in over 190 markets nationwide on the PBS network of stations. Another notable television appearance was on the “Shotgun Red” television show, which is seen on RFD Television. In 2010, the band opened the SPBGMA Awards show. The band was also selected as showcase alternates at the NACA (National Association for Campus Activities) convention. This is voted on and awarded by a panel of college students. 2013 marks the band’s first appearance at Dollywood’s Celebrity Theater, 2014 at Silver Dollar City and Eddie’s Attic and the band released a new album in June 2014.

Judge Talford Band is a perfect fit for your next event. Whether it is a Fair, music festival, corporate function, college or university function, music hall, theater, church, cruise ship or private party, JTB will tailor their stage show to meet your specific needs.

Marty Stuart

If you were to give country music an address, you might say it's at the corner of sacred and profane, two doors up from the blues and folk, and just across the street from gospel, R&B and rock 'n' roll. And on a deeper emotional and spiritual level, it resides where Saturday night meets Sunday morning. No one understands these coordinates better than Marty Stuart. For over forty years, the five-time Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has been building a rich legacy at this very crossroads.

The Kentucky Headhunters

The Kentucky Headhunters created a hybrid of honky tonk, blues, and Southern rock that appealed to fans of both rock and country music. The origins of the Kentucky Headhunters lie in 1968, when Fred and Richard Young began playing together with their cousins Greg Martin and Anthony Kenney at the Youngs' grandmother's house. Mark Orr also later joined them. The first incarnation of the band was called the Itchy Brothers, and the group played together informally for over a decade. After about 13 years, the bandmembers began launching separate careers: Richard Young went off to write songs for Acuff-Rose, while Fred Young began touring with country beauty Sylvia. Martin became a member of Ronnie McDowell's band, while Kenney dropped out of music. In 1985, Martin decided to reassemble the Itchy Brothers. When Kenney declined to rejoin the group, Martin remembered Doug Phelps, whom he had met while on tour with McDowell. Phelps joined the new project, which was named the Kentucky Headhunters. Besides Martin and Phelps, the band also included the Young brothers and Doug's brother Ricky Lee Phelps. 

The Headhunters started playing twice monthly on the Chitlin' Show, a radio program on WLOC Munfordville, Kentucky. From these 90-minute performances, the Headhunters built up a following. They sent an eight-song demo to Mercury, and soon after, the label signed the group. The original demo tape was remixed, and became the basis of the band's first album, 1989's Pickin' on Nashville, which received overwhelmingly positive reviews upon its release and quickly became a hit. "Dumas Walker" reached number 15 in the spring of 1990, followed by the group's biggest hit, the number six "Oh, Lonesome Me." In 1991, the Headhunters released their second effort, Electric Barnyard. The album received mixed reviews, couldn't muster a single, and sold weakly. In summer 1992, the Phelps brothers left the group to form Brothers Phelps, a more traditional country group. The remaining Headhunters brought ex-Itchy Brothers Anthony Kenney and Mark Orr to the group, and the rehashed lineup released Rave On! in 1993. The album marked a progression toward bluesy Southern rock, which came to fruition with That'll Work later that same year. In 1996, Doug returned on lead vocals, and a year later, the band issued Stompin' Grounds. Songs from the Grass String Ranch followed in 2000, and Soul appeared in spring 2003. Big Boss Man was released in 2005 and Flying Under the Radar in 2006, both from CBUJ Entertainment. Dixie Lullabies, the group's 12th album, and their first studio recording of new original material since 2003, appeared from Red Dirt Records in 2011. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

LOGAN BRILL

Brill sings what she knows. She does it well. The Nashville resident’s stunning debut braces earthy (“Tricks of the Trade”) and ethereal narratives (“Fall Off the Face of the Earth”) with storytelling as sharp as a seasoned artist. Equal measures edge (“Seven Year Rain”) and energy (“Month of Bad Habits”) back lyrical elegance throughout. Her sincerity shines. “Logan’s is not just a pretty voice,” says Mando Saenz, Brill’s Carnival Records label mate and occasional co-writing partner. “She has a very honest voice that touches people when they hear it.”
