Brantley Gilbert continues to climb the charts with his latest single, "Country Must Be Country Wide." He'll also headline our big 2011 Taste of Country Christmas Tour on December 1 at Wild West, here in Lubbock. We've been getting excited for the show and can't wait for December first when he and Thomas Rhett will set the Hub City on fire.
Jeff Allen is a musician who's riding high on the Texas Country scene right now. He just released his newest EP, his touring schedule is frantic and his music continues to prove that great music is being made in the Lone Star State. And, with all the success he's finding, he doesn't have a big head about it.
Mark McKinney has seen a lot of miles recently on his current radio tour. He's seen over 5,000 Miles of the Lone Star State in just over a month's time, and there's no sign of slowing down. It's a crazy life style, but McKinney if proof that with hard work and passion, good things will come.
Anson Carter is a name you're going to want to remember. He may look rough and tough, but that's only until he smiles. Anson, a true Texan, reminds you of the good old fashioned honky tonk days of country.
Ryan Beaver is the type of musician that everyone is striving to become. He's been getting great attention as a singer/songwriter around Texas, Oklahoma and out east in Nashville. His songwriting continues to prove that Nashville recording artists and labels in fact do pay attention to what is going on in Texas.
Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert and Colt Ford are three of the biggest names in country music right now. They're all riding high on the success of Aldean's "Dirt Road Anthem," written by Gilbert and Ford. The song is received a nomination for Song of the Year for this year's CMA's. With the success the three are having individually, they could be giants as a super group.
Though they don't share the same parents, aren't even close in age and were born years and miles apart; our very own Rick Gilbert still insists that he and country music star Brantley Gilbert are long lost brothers. It's easy to prove his argument to be wrong, but it was fun to listen to it.
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is a name you may not be familiar with now, but that will change. Hailing from Brown County, in the heart of Indiana, the Big Damn Band doesn’t look or sound like your traditional country/blues band. They’re a three piece band with a sound bigger than anything you’ve ever heard.
Stoney LaRue is a house hold name on the Texas/Red Dirt Scene thanks to his rough tour schedule, sharp song writing and originality. Stoney headlined the ATO Gator Fest on Friday, September 2nd, here in Lubbock. That's where we got the chance to sit down and play six years of catch up with the Red Dirt pioneer. We talked everything from the release of his new album, Velvet, to working with Frank Liddell to musical influences.
I had the privilege to sit down and talk with Asleep At The Wheel leader,Ray Benson, Thursday September 1, before their show at the Cactus Theater. I grew up with the music of Asleep at the Wheel and foamed at the mouth when I was granted the honor of doing the interview with the Texas legend. Ray talked everything from Western Swing to Austin City Limits to the state of country music today.
