Genre-bending band Whiskey Myers combine Country and Southern Rock influences to create a sound all their own, led by front man Cody Cannon’s raspy drawl. WHISKEY MYERS, the band’s self-produced fifth studio album released September 27, 2019 is their most personal yet. It debuted atop both the Country and Americana/Folk album sales charts, at No. 2 on the Rock chart behind only The Beatles and at No. 6 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. Whiskey Myers was featured in Paramount Network’s Kevin Costner hit show “Yellowstone” with synced songs throughout Seasons 1 and 2 as well as an appearance by the band in S1E4. Their music is also featured in Netflix’ “What/If,” now streaming. “Yellowstone” and its 4.5 million viewers sent the band’s 2016 album Mud to No. 1 on the iTunes country chart and Top 20 all genre, simultaneously with their 2011 album Firewater and 2014’s Early Morning Shakes also hitting the Top 10 country albums and Top 50 all-genre. Five songs off the 2+ year old albums also charted in the iTunes Top 200 with “Stone” hitting the Top 10 on the country chart.
For more than a decade, Adam Hood has left his mark onstage and in the writing room, carving out a southern sound that mixes soul, country, and American roots music into the same package. It’s a sound that began shape in Opelika, Alabama. Raised by working-class parents, Hood started playing hometown shows as a 16 year-old, landing a weekly residency at a local restaurant. He’d perform there every Friday and Saturday night, filling his set list with songs by John Hiatt, Steve Warner, Hank Williams Jr, and Vince Gill. As the years progressed, the gigs continued — not only in Alabama, but across the entire country, where Hood still plays around 100 shows annually. Learn more.
Kentucky has historically proven itself fertile ground for prolific singer/songwriters. Western Kentucky’s Tony Logue is exactly that. Fresh off the release of his album SERPENTS & SAVIORS, Logue is slowly carving out his place among his respective Kentucky alumni. Logue’s characters often have grease beneath their nails and their backs against the wall. Hard nosed, hard living folks searching for that glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Stories woven with the thread of hardship and hope.
Born in Waco, Texas, Kristen Kelly grew up in the country, living on 10 acres in small-town Lorena, Texas. “You blink, you miss it,” she smiles. She credits her outdoorsy, adventurous spirit in adult life to those days of “simple country living.” Kristen laughs as she describes her music as having “a little more grease than polish.” And that grease is an exciting mix, distilled from her country, blues, and classic rock influences into a passionate, playful, often sexy, and always heartfelt reflection of real life as she knows it.
Here to put the "Try" in country, Nick Shoulders and the gang bring you “Okay, Crawdad," the fledgling full length record by the New Orleans based ethereal honky tonkers. Wielding a warbling high yodel and whistle crafted from a lifetime chasing lizards through the Ozark hills, Nick combines his family's deep ties to southern traditional music with years singing to empty street corners to create this hybridized form of raucous country music: born of some dark holler and bred to be sweated out and stomped into the New Orleans dancefloors it now calls home. A cry out against the withering void of listless Americana, “Okay, Crawdad.” is a two-step laden dose of indignation, loss and profound elation; inspired as much by the chaos and decadence of south Louisiana as it is the rural sounds of yesteryear from which it sprang. Embracing the mania of the podunk zeitgeist while seeking to enfranchise those without a voice, we hope you're as “Okay” as we are.
Craig Morgan has many homes. As a man of faith, he has refuge in his Church. As a father and husband, he's at home with his family outside Nashville. And as an Army veteran, he has a respected role within the United States military. On his latest album, God, Family, Country, Craig pays tribute to all three of those pillars while returning to the record label with whom he scored his first Top 10 single. That song's title? "Almost Home." Learn more.
Over the past decade Chris Shouse and Arthur Hancock have carried the modern music of Kentucky through the 23 String Band and The Wooks respectively. Now they've teamed up to bring you songs old and new and they are grateful to get to play anywhere and anytime.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama playing the banjo first (the precursor to a wide variety of other stringed and percussion instruments that he can pick up and melt with his hands) River Dan has always embraced the warm comfort of southern appeal in his personality and most importantly in his music. He writes about the trials and tribulations of the life of a simple man, blondes, and being a rambler.
Neil Thrasher is an American country music singer and songwriter. Between 1995 and 1997, he and Kelly Shiver comprised the duo Thrasher Shiver, which recorded a studio album for Asylum Records in 1996 and charted two singles on the Billboard country charts in early 1997.

Ray Fulcher was born & raised in the small town of Harlem, Georgia and grew up on many of country music’s best songwriters & storytellers. Some of his biggest influences were Alan Jackson, Keith Whitley, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eric Church & George Strait. He was inspired to go out and buy a guitar after seeing an Eric Church concert at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Georgia when he was 21 years old. Shortly after Ray graduated from the University of Georgia he moved to Nashville, TN, to pursue his songwriting & artist career.
Cobb is a conversational lyricist who dispenses normal but precisely crafted phrases amid simple-yet-rich melodies. He skips from Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" to family to making "plans to do what we ain't done yet." He takes a funny story about his uncle and bends the truth a bit for the quiet holler "Down In The Gulley." His songwriting lineage shines through in "Country Bound," written by his daddy; here, it features a bouncing solo from J Kott, whom Cobb jokingly calls "our bass player/lead guitarist."
If you love country music and are most at home outdoors you should be familiar with The Brothers Hunt (Dan and Reid Isbell). Describing themselves as “conservationists, hunters, songwriters,” they are crushing it in Nashville, Tenn., having written songs for Luke Combs, Justin Moore, Kenny Chesney, Craig Campbell, Scotty McCreery and others. But when they’re not on Music Row penning the next big hit for country radio, they’re chasing elk on a snow-covered ranch in Montana or hunting turkey with friends and family. Learn more.

Texan Zach Aaron travels through lifetimes of hurt on his new album, Fill Dirt Wanted. Boasting 12 tunes performed live and committed to tape, the new record contains staggering songwriting and raw production, hallmarks fitting this traditional Country/Folk troubadour. Born in El Paso, Texas, on an army base, Zach was quickly shuffled off with his mother to Tombstone, Arizona. When he was 12 years old, they relocated again to East Texas. It wasn’t until after high school that he began to explore music as his creative outlet. At a local construction job, one of his co-workers first taught him basic guitar chords. “I never sang in my life before or even wrote songs,” he says. Six months later he committed to the Air Force for four and a half years, and continued to hone his craft. When he returned, he pursued music more seriously.
To understand the musical entity known as Wood & Wire, it’s best to toss aside expectations regarding the sounds that might be created by four pickers holding assemblages of wood and wire — specifically acoustic guitar, bass, banjo and mandolin. Yes, this Austin-based quartet’s last album, 2018’s North of Despair, gave them a permanent new adjective — Grammy-nominated — and yes, the category was Best Bluegrass Album. Learn more.
