Tyler Farr recently released “A Guy Walks into a Bar” the next single off of his upcoming Columbia Nashville LP. The song, written by Melissa Peirce, Jonathan Singleton, and Brad Tursi, hit a chord with the Missouri-born singer, who loved the use of a simple act – walking into a bar – to highlight everything from a relationship’s first exciting meeting to heartbreak.
Hailed as a breakout new country male vocalist, Columbia Nashville’s broke through the country and all genre charts last year with debut album, “Redneck Crazy”, which landed at No. 2 on the Country Albums chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart and marking the year’s highest entry by a debut male country artist on the all-genre Billboard 200 album sales chart at its debut.
Colt Ford is just an unassuming good old country boy from Georgia, a one-time pro golfer turned songwriter and musician who has struck a chord with his growing fan base. On “Thanks for Listening”,his fifth album on his own perfectly named Average Joes Entertainment label, he returns the favor, offering his audience a humble token of his appreciation. With his groundbreaking blend of country music and hip hop rhythms, Ford is a cultural force who is ready to go from cult status to a household name, from the mud trucker events where he started to arena stages, where he’ll next be seen sharing the bill with Toby Keith.
Parmalee’s country rock sound has its roots in the bluegrass, traditional country, southern rock and blues covers the guys grew up hearing their families play. Matt and Scott Thomas grew up near Greenville, North Carolina watching their father Jerry front a popular local southern rock blues band. The boys watched and learned, picking up their own instruments and jamming along with their dad’s band. From this they learned how to integrate their own style into the songs they were playing. Barry Know, who played drums for the church choir, loved what his cousins were doing and soon joined them.
Music defines Chase Bryant at every level and in often unexpected ways. His truths are expressed in melody, lyrics, hooks and sounds…but his reality goes even deeper than that. Bryant’s heritage is defined by music. His upbringing, his craft, his inspiration and his obsessions are all centered in the same – which is good – because there’s no other way to explain how a 21-year-old Texan could already be a top flight guitar player, head turning song writer, RED BOW recording artist and co-producer of his debut album.
