James Lann

James grew up on cattle ranches in the southwest and has been making his own way through life since he was only 15. Always passionate about songwriting, he's been touring and making music for many years. He has performed in over 20 countries and thousands of cities, while still taking care of his son, Mason.

James has accomplished many wonderful things in his career. He has released 3 successful albums and hit the charts with his songs. Six of his compositions managed to hit Billboard Texas Regional Charts at number one!

Today, he is ready to release new music. With his humble spirit, James still has the desire to spread great music with the world. He had the pleasure to perform with some of the greats in country music. He shared the stage with artists like Chris Ledoux, Merle Haggard, Clay Walker, Joe Nichols, Junior Brown, Dale Watson, Robert Earl Keene, Ronnie Dunn, and many more!

James is a very honest songwriter, whose music connects with the audience on a much deeper level. Being a single father isn't always easy. James sacrificed his time and career, to make sure he could provide his young son the best possible care. James never gave up showing people that dreams do come true, even if it might take a bit of extra time!

According to James, music is important because it can pull a person through life's hardships. With a firm belief in the fact that anything is possible with faith in God and music, James is a positive role model for his audience. His philosophy is simple: we only live once, so we might as well shoot for the stars!

James new album is a true labor of love. The project has been in the works for the past 3 years, and finally, it's almost here!

James resides in a small town South of Dallas/ Ft. Worth, where he built his own cabin for his son and himself. His biggest desire is to live a simple life with music and family, where God can always be found.

Bradley Banning

Bradley Banning grew up mowing lawns and writing songs. He says, “My dad owned a landscaping company growing up, but he wrote songs when he got home at night. My dad’s dedication to our family and songwriting taught me to never quit on something you love. Whether it’s your family, friends, music, etc…”

In 2017, Bradley released his first single, “Don’t Mess With Texas” that he recorded in his bedroom. “Don’t Mess With Texas” was one of the few debut singles from any artist that broke top 20 on the Texas charts in 2017 and ended up receiving major airplay on stations across Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and New Mexico. Bradley's

follow up single, "More" went to radio in March of 2018 and was his second top 40 single in Texas.

Following the release of his 2019 EP 'Songwriter' and three years after the release of his first single, "Don't Mess With Texas" Bradley releases his third radio single “Texan” as a tip of the hat to everyone who has helped move his music forward along the way.

Wynn Williams

Country music is more than just a cowboy hat and boots. It’s standing by your word, honoring a handshake, and working hard. Country music is not about where you’re from or what you wear; it’s about how you live. And, Wynn Williams lives country music.  At just 25-years-old, and now with multiple years of breakneck touring under his belt, Williams is gearing up to launch his self-titled debut album with a generous 14-track offering. The collection, produced by Roger Brown and featuring first single “Man What a Woman” and current hit “Yeah Buddy,” celebrates time-honored Texas traditions of honesty, hard work, respect, and a whole lot of fun. “The vision I had for this album was to have something for every kind of country music fan. The album is full of stories about real life. In my experience, life is truly a rollercoaster ride full of ups and downs, and I want to share those stories and experiences with fans of all genres. With that said, you can’t take yourself too seriously, so having fun while you’re living is what it’s all about!”  Williams is carrying on the tradition of country music from more than just the Greats. To Williams, country music is a family tradition left behind from a grandfather he never met. Warren Edwards was a singer and musician invited to join Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys as a touring musician during their prime. “My mom says that I am a spitting image of my granddad and that she sees so much of him in me. That’s a pretty cool thing.” Warren unfortunately had to decline the offer as his responsibilities lay at home with his wife and daughters, but every now and then Wynn will surprise his audience with some western swing as tribute.

As Wynn continues to play his songs to large audiences, he just hopes his new album resonates with his loyal fan base. “We’ve worked really hard on this album. It’s been an amazing experience and I just hope it makes an impact.” Not only will this collection remind fans why they fell in love with Wynn, it will remind them why they fell in love with country music. If this is just the beginning of many albums to come, country music is in good hands.

Matt Castillo

How The River Flows, Matt Castillo's third album and his first national release, marks a substantial leap forward for the South Texas-bred country artist.  The dynamic young performer, who's already carved out a D.I.Y. niche and built a loyal fan base on his home turf, embodies a rare convergence of talent, vision and charisma that confirms his status as one of the Lone Star state's most promising indie artists.  The 12-song How The River Flows—recorded in Nashville with noted producer/songwriter Roger Brown and an all-star assortment of some of country music's finest studio players—demonstrates what Castillo's regional fans already know. On such infectious new tunes as "Say It," "Evil Kind of Woman," "'Cause He's A Cowboy," "Leaving Brownsville Tonight" and "No Easy Way to You," Castillo effortlessly taps into a timelessly vital vein of the Lone Star state’s multiple musical traditions.  "This album has been two and half years in the making," Castillo notes. "The goal was for every song to be great, and for every song to have substance, and I feel like we've achieved that. Roger and I put a lot of thought into choosing the songs. We also had some long talks about the sonics of this record. We wanted to keep the South Texas flavor, but also to give it a universal vibe that will resonate with a wide range of listeners.”  "I'm always trying to grow as an artist and songwriter," Castillo asserts. "It hasn't always come easy, but I'm always working at it. My goals are pretty simple: to keep writing and recording, and to get into a position where I can tour hard across the U.S. I feel like making music is what I was put here for, so I'm not planning on stopping.”

Hayden Haddock

Rising Red Dirt singer-songwriter Hayden Haddock is quickly becoming an artist you need to know. With more than 100 tour dates per year, Haddock’s diligent nature mixed with his traditional, authentic style of country music has quickly solidified his spot as a staple in the Texas Country scene. After releasing his debut album First Rodeo in late 2018, Haddock’s lead-off single “She Don’t Know It Yet” quickly climbed the Texas country charts while his sophomore radio single “Everywhere I Need To Be” peaked in the Top 35; an impressive feat. for the young talent. Not only did the record perform well at country radio, but it has also amassed more than 750K streams on Spotify while being featured on more than 2.5K playlists.

Now celebrating the release of his sophomore record with hit producer/songwriter Trent Willmon (Cody Johnson, Eric Church, Randy Houser) at the helm, Haddock is ready to take his career to the next level with Red Dirt Texas. The 10-track album features five songs co-written by Haddock and chart-topping songwriters including Willmon, Kevin Fowler, David Lee Murphy, Terry McBride, Tommy Karlas (Randy Travis, Blake Shelton, Montgomery Gentry), John Pierce (Zac Brown Band, Chris Young), Jim Collins (Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean) and more. Upon its January 31st release, Red Dirt Texas reached No. 39 on the iTunes Country albums chart and is celebrating premiere editorial playlist placement on Spotify.

The Texas A&M Junior hit the ground running in the new decade with the title track of his sophomore record currently in the Top 20 and climbing up the Texas country charts while the music video premiered on Billboard and has racked up more than 400K views across all platforms. Staying true to his Texas roots, Haddock recenlty announced a partnership with award-winning Texas based distillery, Rebecca Creek Whiskey. Having shared the stage with Casey Donahew, Cory Morrow, the Eli Young Band, Whiskey Myers and more, Haddock performs every weekend in Texas and surrounding states. The hardworking,road warrior also has multiple TV appearances under his belt including ABC Dallas’ Good Morning Texas, CBS Austin’s We Are Austin, FOX 7 Austin’s Music In The Morning, San Antonio’s Great Day SA, Colorado’s Good Morning Vail, Las Vegas’ MORE FOX5, WSMV’s Today In Nashville, and CBS Bryan-College Station’s Free Music Friday.

Haddock’s musical influences are deeply rooted in his home state of Texas by artists such as George Strait, Cody Johnson, Luke Combs, Jon Pardi and Eric Church. Some may be surprised to find out that Haddock is only 21-years-old as he has a musical instinct well beyond his years. Having been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at a young age, Haddock works with several organizations to help spread awareness of the disease and is an advocate/speaker for JDRF.

Kat Hasty

The great Bob Dylan once said, “you don’t just wake up one day and decide you need to write songs.” This quote rings true for the up and comer, Kat Hasty. As a child, before she knew how to put words on paper, she was singing and writing music. Born and raised in west Texas, her upbringing pours through her songwriting in tales of desert highways and the hustle and bustle of oil towns. Laced with heartache, joy, loss and female angst, her songs are ingenious and uniquely her own. The songwriter released her EP, “Drowning in Dreams” earlier this March and has seen support from all over the country. Talented and motivated, she is set to begin a long career sharing her stories and growing into the performer that she is fated to be.

Cole Whittlesey

With East Texas and Hill Country ties, Cole Whittlesey calls College Station home. He has released his first single “Glasses” with new music coming in the next few months. 

Texas Sundown Band

Texas Sundown is based out of the Cypress, Texas area. Texas Sundown plays a variety of Texas Country, 90's Country, and some Top 40 Country. A stylistically unique Country Band from day one, the members of Texas Sundown have been been singing, performing, and playing in sync as if they’d been together their entire musical careers. Throughout the course of the band’s union, they have won over the hearts of music lovers; performing at a variety of venues, making friends with other musicians in the business. 

David Lewis

Country roots run deep with David Lewis after being raised in the small town of Bellville, Texas. David loved to sing and was given his first guitar when he was seven years old. Even though his fingers could barely hold down the strings, he never gave up. After seeing David perform in his hometown, the leader of a local opry invited him to be a guest on his show. It wasn’t long until David began playing country music on the opry circuit across Texas, giving him the chance to perform with numerous musicians who focused on traditional country. David found himself being drawn to the music of Merle Haggard, George Strait, and Alan Jackson where he continues to make traditional country sound new again.

Ever since a young age, David sang and played acoustic guitar at his church. In the seventh grade, he was given an opportunity that soon developed into a passion to play lead guitar for the adult praise and worship band. Determined to master his skill, David spent many hours practicing. The love for this new lead instrument found its way into David’s country music shows. He is forever thankful for his time playing in church and always includes at least one country Gospel song in each of his sets.

David’s performances have earned him many awards through the years. In 2018, he won the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo “Rodeo Rockstar” competition and was awarded studio time and the chance to perform on a rodeo parade float. That same year, David won the Texas FFA State Talent Competition, performing in front of an audience of 12,000. Most recently, David won the regional Country Showdown competition which has earned him a trip to Nashville where he will be competing for the national title.

Easton Corbin

“Turn up a little Conway Twitty,” Easton Corbin croons in his distinctive Southern drawl on latest single “Turn Up.” Within the track, Corbin blends traditional instrumentation with modern day production alongside vivid country storytelling for a sound that is uniquely his.

Corbin exudes country. His distinctive baritone has been gracing airwaves for the past decade as his chart topping debut single “A Little More Country Than That” established Corbin as a mainstay on the country charts. Billboard’s 2010 Top New Country Artist would go on to garner another No. 1 hit with the feel-good “Roll With It” as well as seven top 10 singles, further distinguishing himself from other male vocalists as a tried-and-true country traditionalist who weaves timeless story songs together while tipping his hat to the classic country artists who have come before him.

“That’s what I love and that’s what I do,” he says of his passion for traditional country music. “For me, it's about keeping one foot in the traditional and one foot in the modern and marrying those two. I’m a country singer: That's one of the things that I take pride in. I try to hone that craft and try to represent that.”

While 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of “A Little More Country Than That” achieving No. 1 status, Corbin shows no sign of slowing down with the release of his infectious new single “Turn Up” and more new music on the way. He promises a “wide array” of songs that include fiddle and pedal steel. As he embarks on a new chapter as an independent artist, Corbin says “A Little More Country Than That” still reflects who he is as an artist and where he sees his career going.

“That's really how I grew up,” he says of his career-defining song. “‘A Little More Country Than That’ radiates with me and my band as well because that really is who I am. That's where I came from, that's what I am. It’s just as important now as it was then, because that's the one that started it all for me. That’s definitely a staple of an Easton Corbin show. I think it also defines my audience and who they are.”

The Florida native was surrounded by music as a child. A Merle Haggard or Hank Williams record was always being spun at his grandparents’ house and a guitar was often lying around begging to be played. “My earliest memories are of me as a kid with a guitar, singing and playing along with the radio,” Corbin recalls. “I knew from an early age I wanted to be a country singer.”

After a decade in the spotlight, Corbin is more confident than ever. “I know what I want to say and what I don’t want to say, and I know what I would say and what I wouldn’t say,” he explains. “I think the new music will highlight the fact that we've been honing these songs and trying to cut the best songs and writing the best songs we can. I think this project, when people give it a shot, they'll see that.”

In the meantime, country fans can turn up a little Easton Corbin. 

Hayden Baker

Texas native, Hayden Baker, has gone from posting cover songs and “how-to” guitar tutorials on YouTube to opening for some of country music’s biggest stars in the span of just a few short years. His style of playing carefully blends the neo-traditional country sound complete with crying steel and soaring fiddle with ripping guitar solos reminiscent of Brad Paisley. Speaking of Brad, he has actually befriended Hayden and re-posted a few of his videos on social media. Hayden even got to step on stage with Brad in Cleveland, OH and jam with his band during soundcheck.

In December of 2018, Hayden released his first album entitled Born In The Wrong Generation. The lead track off of that EP, "How Many Beers" was released to radio and made it all the way to #35 on the TRRR chart. His first full length album will be released this fall with a few singles preceding it this summer.

He has received praise for both his guitar playing and songwriting skills from many industry giants; including Ronnie Dunn, Clay Walker, Chris DuBois, Wade Bowen and—his guitar hero—Brad Paisley. As Clay put it, “You have to be born with the gift of songwriting to be successful. This kid was born with it!”

Hayden's live shows are full of energy. Expect country-rocker's, high speed train beats, mid-tempo dancing songs, and a few waltz's full of fiddle and steel. Oh, and LOTS of guitar solos. Though Hayden has only been performing for a short time, he has accomplished more than most could dream of doing in their career. In November of 2018, Hayden stood in front of 5,000+ and opened the show for the great Willie Nelson at The Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land, Texas. He has also opened for the likes of Larry Gatlin, Wade Bowen, Parker McCollum, Randall King, Josh Ward, Tracy Lawrence and Joe Nichols.

Rich O'Toole

True artists know that music, like horizons and imaginations, has no limits. Just ask Rich O’Toole — or better, listen to his newest songs. Some have already been released online. All of them will be included in his album, New York, released June 26 on Average Joes’ new Texas/Americana imprint, Buffalo Roam records. Each one tells a story that’s pulled from O’Toole’s life, set to music that defies easy categorization. But we’ll try anyway. You’ll hear myriad influences in his emotional, sometimes wrenching vocals and instrumental tracks that punch like Springsteen’s New Jersey epics, roll like the prairie wind that haunts Mellencamp’s compositions and hark back to O’Toole’s Texas upbringing.

It’s as American as music can be, more universal than regional. On “California” he looks back on his time in L.A., asking his old self “Does the wine taste different in California? Do the stars shine a little too bright? Did you lose your faith in God on Sunset and Vine?” From the four months he spent in the apartment of a Manhattan friend, he takes us along on a prowl through “New York City,” a maze of “late nights, city sounds, back-alley bars” and “high-class women on eastbound trains.” Then there’s “Mississippi,” where he can cruise through paradise, where you can “turn on some Springsteen. I got the windows down, you can smell the salty air … ‘Dancing in the Dark,’ got the wind blowing through my hair.”

Clearly O’Toole has gone beyond his early acclaim from his self-released debut Seventeen. Having grown up in Houston, strong Texas roots nourished that album, earning praise from Americana Music Times (then called Texas Music Times) as the year’s “Best Album That No One Told You About.” But a wider range of influences drew him toward higher ambitions.

Nourished by this stream of influences, O’Toole would issue several albums. He hit the Country Music iTunes Chart with Jaded and topped the Texas Music Chart three times. He played countless gigs throughout the Lone Star State and beyond. Most important, he would open himself to life, accepting happiness and heartbreak as lessons that he could translate into passionate song.

Jacob Armitage

"Jacob Armitage is a singer/songwriter from a place outside of Midland, TX known as Greenwood. Inspired by the likes of Charlie Robison, Cody Canada, Robert Earl Keen and Randy Rogers, Jacob grew up playing and writing songs. It wasn’t until moving to Lubbock, Texas, when he began performing his songs live. Jacob has released two singles 'Runner' and 'Drift Away'. With his first release, Jacob remained on the the Texas Music Pickers chart for 12 weeks straight and has been played on multiple stations throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Kansas. With more music to be recorded, and shows booked across Texas, the future is bright for this young songwriter." - Texas Internet Radio

Hill Country

Texas-based outfit “Hill Country” travels the borderland between musical genres, busting down the gates that separate country, bluegrass, folk, and acoustic rock. Listening to the interweaving 5-part harmonies, rock-solid songwriting and effortless musicianship, it’s natural to assume they’ve been playing together for years—-yet it wasn’t until late 2019 that their five paths converged.  Primary front man and songwriter Zane Williams was already a well-established solo act with a loyal fan base and seven albums under his belt when he reached out to fellow Texas troubadour Paul Eason about starting a band. Paul had three solo albums of his own, not to mention a coveted side-man position playing lead guitar for Texas legend Kevin Fowler, but was immediately intrigued by the idea of a more collaborative project.  Houston-based drummer Lyndon Hughes was next hop on board, bringing his passion for group vocals and extensive engineering and producing experience working with artists like Cody Johnson, Sundance Head, Roger Creager, David Grace, and more. A jam session at a demo studio brought them all together with multi-instrumentalist and singer Andy Rogers on banjo, dobro, mandolin and guitar, and the chemistry was immediate. Eventually the band’s unique vocal blend crystallized with the addition of Austin’s own Sean Rodriguez on bass and vocals.

Recorded in Austin and Houston over a period of eleven months, Hill Country’s self-titled debut album takes the listener on a sprawling journey through twelve original songs arranged, produced, and performed by the band members themselves. Album opener “River Roll” weaves three acoustic guitars and vibey percussion like the echo of a 70’s-era James Taylor. Rootsy rocker “Work to Do” would feel right at home on a Steeldrivers album, while the lost-love lament “Dixie Darlin” recalls the traditions of Lonestar story-tellers like Jerry Jeff Walker and Michael Martin Murphy. Album standout “The Eagle” is an instant classic, poignant and concise, lifted by soaring harmonies over a bed of dobro, mandolin, and guitar.  Whether it’s the Texas hill country, the hills of Tennessee, California, Georgia, or New York—-the term “hill country” is as universal as music itself. The men of Hill Country have spent countless miles exploring territories both musical and geographic, and yet their journey together, perhaps their greatest journey yet, is just beginning.

Mason Marek

Mason Marek is the embodiment of a true-blooded, blue-collared artist and musician. From New Ulm, Texas, Mason grew up playing with his grandpa, Gaylen, across the state. Early on, he began writing short stories while surrounded by true, genuine Texas Country Music. This storytelling passion would one day become the foundation for his songwriting. After the passing of his grandfather, Mason’s love for playing faded as he lost the one who introduced him to music. During this period, he would have to deal with the loss of several other close family members. After he graduated, he began to find music again and rediscovered his passion. However, death would come again as his best friend of 17 years suddenly passed away. This time, however, it would be different. The music stayed and helped Mason cope with the losses he’s experienced. He began to express his feelings in his lyrics and decided to record his songs as a symbol of starting a new chapter in life.

Reckless Kelly

Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas.

The band’s co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They performed on The Tonight Show twice. Their father taught his four sons a professional ethic – integrity, persistence, hard work and professionalism – honed over three generations. They overcame hardships, struggled for recognition, and learned the lessons of the trial and error that defined them.

In one sense, it’s remarkable in the way of any musician, athlete, or businessperson who bucks the odds. In another, though, it’s utterly natural that Reckless Kelly, born in the dreams of the two Braun brothers and their heritage but nurtured in the bumpy road of maturity, became the very essence of Americana music in all its far-flung glory.

Jake Bush

Jake Bush is an American Singer/Songwriter who has served his country with pride in the U.S Army Reserves based out of Ellington Field in Webster, Tx. With two 5-Song EP’s, 2 Single’s and countless unreleased songs in his vault, is making a name for himself in the Texas Music Scene. Jake has shared the stage with some heroes such as: Cory Morrow, Parker McCollum, Jake Worthington, William Clark Green, Big & Rich, Kyle Hutton, Bri Bagwell, Glen Templeton, Zane Williams, Rich Trevino, and many more. Jake was raised on traditional values and music is everything, there’s no stopping for Jake. C’mon 2020!
