Season 10 artists include:
Roger Creager, January 24, 2012
For more than a decade, Roger Creager built a reputation on his distinctive brand of hard-core, rabble-rousing Texas Country music, on his rich, full-bodied voice that can carry a tune for miles, and on his exceptional ability to work thousands of Texans into a rabid frenzy with his voice and guitar, in the great concert tradition of Jerry Jeff Walker and Robert Earl Keen. Along the way, he’s been writing some mighty fine instant classics about family heirlooms, fields of bluebonnets, and late night trips to Mexico. Five albums, hundreds of thousands of road miles, and an ever-expanding fan base later, Surrender has Roger Creager laying his cards on the table with songs that are arguably his best batch yet.
Johnny Cooper, February 7, 2012
Johnny Cooper, at the age of 23, has accomplished more than many musicians twice his age. Having recorded two critically-acclaimed, full-length studio albums (and another in the works) and not one, but two live albums under his belt – the total album sales of which have eclipsed 50,000 – Johnny Cooper’s career trajectory cannot be stopped. He recently had two songs included on the soundtrack for the independent movie, Deep In The Heart, which also includes tracks from Charlie Daniels, Larry Gatlin, Wade Bowen, and others. Riding high on the success of 2007’s Ignition – which, alone, has sold over 25,000 copies – and 2009’s Follow, Johnny Cooper now releases Live At The Pub II, a collection of songs that his band recorded live, over the course of two nights, to some of their most devoted fans.
Gretchen Peters, February 21, 2012
Martina McBride’s 1995 recording of Peters’ “Independence Day,” the gritty story of an abused woman’s revenge, made her a songwriting sensation. The performance received a “Best Country Song” Grammy nomination and won the Country Music Association’s “Song of the Year” title. After that a string of great vocalists – Pam Tillis, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, Neil Diamond, George Strait, Etta James – began to record Peters’ songs. Peters also signed her own record deal, yielding her 1996 debut album The Secret of Life. The title track was cut by Faith Hill in 1999 and hit number five on the country charts. Since then Peters has recorded five other solo albums: Gretchen Peters (2001), Halcyon (2004), Trio Live (2006), Burnt Toast and Offerings (2007) and Northern Lights (2008). The compilation Circus Girl was released in 2009. And that same year Peters collaborated with one of her favorite songwriters, Tom Russell, for their One To the Heart, One To the Head.
Max Stalling, March 6, 2012
Texas based songwriter, Max Stalling, had no expectation of ever being in the music business. “I didn’t even pick up a guitar until graduate school,” notes Stalling. After attending high school in South Texas, Stalling studied at Texas A&M – College Station, where he earned a masters degree in Food Science. He followed the corporate road from there and eventually landed in Dallas working in product development for Frito-Lay. Stalling’s style is modern with a vintage feel. With Jeff Howe on drums and percussion, Bryce Clarke on nylon-string guitar, electric guitar and mandolin, and Jason Steinsultz swapping between stand-up and electric bass, Stalling creates a dynamic live show that’s smart, charming and as listenable as it is danceable. Stalling and troupe are equally at home on a huge concert stage in front of thousands or playing an acoustic set for a hundred. Attendance numbers at shows have continued to rise. “I chalk it up to the strength of the songs and the strength of my band”, comments Max.
The Tejas Brothers, March 20, 2012
This high energy show will put everyone in a great mood! An original sound, brewed in Texas for the whole world to enjoy! Part Honky-Tonk Country, part Roots-Rockin’ Blues, and part Tasty Tex-Mex!!! Tejas Brothers was formed in the fall of 2006, on a little stage in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards.
Lori McKenna, April 10, 2012
Lori’s unusual combination of professional and personal life, at least in the context of the modern music industry, is well-documented. She grew up in Massachusetts in a musical household. She eventually became a staple of the Boston folk music scene, where she became friendly with Mary Gauthier. “We were the two old ladies in a sea of young faces,” she jokes. When Gauthier picked up and left for Nashville, she brought Lori’s music to the attention of her publisher. They got her music into the hands of Faith Hill, who fell hard for Lori’s songs. Hill recorded three of them for her album Fireflies. Lori’s way of articulating the love, pain and pathos of domestic life had a huge impact on Hill, and Hill’s very public championing of Lori’s music led other artists to Lori’s songs. Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Alison Krauss, Keith Urban and LeAnn Rimes are among the many that have recorded her songs in recent years.
Paul Thorn, April 17, 2012
Born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured a young Elvis generations before, Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Durán on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, opened for Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, and John Prine among many other headliners, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time. Still, Thorn’s story has never been complete. If you follow it back through his songs, at some point near the beginning the mysteries gather like a mist, obscuring the picture and leaving unanswered the question of how he acquired his ability to find brilliance buried in shadows, darkness in daylight, poetry in the mundane, and truth in the brutal beauties of life.
Stone Coyotes, May 29, 2012
The Stone Coyotes are a family trio. But don’t expect lace curtains, casseroles or Partridge Family kitsch. With songwriter Barbara Keith on electric guitar and vocals, husband Doug Tibbles on drums, and stepson John Tibbles on bass, this band rocks – and they mean it.” – ELLA MAGAZINE
“You can’t enter lightly into an association with The Stone Coyotes. Casual music fans need not apply. If rock and roll is important to you, this music will move your soul… The most honest rock band in the business. Anthems, ballads, and battle cries. Bass, guitar, and drums. It’s as simple as that.” – THE UNION NEWS
