Growing up in the small town of Opp, Alabama, home of the Rattlesnake Rodeo, music was always a pillar in Martin McDaniel’s life. With a musician father and an artist mother, creativity was always present, and when 10 year old Martin saw Shannon Wallace play guitar at his church, his own fate had been sealed. “I never really thought about whether or not I was going to play music, I just kind of did. It was something that was always a part of me,” McDaniel says of his adolescent years. When he wasn’t fishing or exploring the outdoors, he was drawing inspiration from artists like Vince Gill, The Eagles, Brian McKnight and everything in between.
After making the move to Nashville in 2008 to pursue his musical ambitions full time, he started out playing part-time in a local house band at the old Cadillac Ranch on Broadway. Soon after, he was able to play his way around the Nashville circuit and secured regular gigs on his own, some of which he continues to play to this day. When he wasn’t entertaining crowds, he was laser focused on his songwriting; finding melodies in everyday situations. Since then, Martin has played all around the country, opening for huge acts like Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Billy Currington. He released his newest single, “About Last Night,” in December 2017.
Nashville is buzzing about the rising star. Rolling Stone Country named Quayle a Top 10 “Artist You Need To Know;” Billboard.com filmed the exclusive performance on top of the Empire State Building; Our Own Nashville calls the new album one of the “most refreshing good albums” heard in awhile; and attended the star-studded Farrah Fawcett Foundation benefit event as a special guest and performer. Quayle’s debut single “Drinking With Dolly” from the new record is close to her heart. It is an anthem for all the women of country in a time when female artists are rising together to make a major impact in today’s music scene. Quayle celebrated her first Top 50 record on the Billboard Indicator chart. The single was a catalyst for moments like a #1 music video on the CMT Music 12-Pack Countdown, her national television debut on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” and an invitation to the respected Island Hopper Songwriter’s Festival.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Jesse honed his musical and songwriting talents throughout his years at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute alongside classmate and high school alum Aubrey Graham (Drake). Upon graduating, Jesse moved immediately into a career in songwriting, penning radio hits for many of Canada’s top performing pop, rock, and country acts. In 2015, following nearly a decade of success in Canada’s music scene, Jesse set his sights on Nashville TN, and it was there in Music City where the country music community welcomed Jesse with open arms. Shortly after the move to Nashville, it was Jesse’s solid fire-driven guitar playing and soaring vocals that led to an invite to open select dates of Keith Urban’s “Raise Em Up” tour. Regularly touring when he isn’t on the ground at home focusing on writing and producing, Jesse’s debut international EP is slated for the spring of 2018. The first of many songs on this EP, “Another You” showcases Labelles penchant for his guitar playing and vocal skills. The second single “Get Away With It” takes the listener deeper into Labelle’s musical landscape, painting an ever unfolding picture of who the world will soon be singing along with. For Jesse, there has never been a more exciting time to watch for what happens next.
“All grit and no quit.” These are the deeply rooted words that Josh Ward lives by to an absolute fault. An anchored mindset that has led this Texas country music rising star from a drifter’s adolescence to the jeopardous game of the rodeo circuit to the punishing toil of the Texas oil fields, and on into the fickle arms of the music business. Some might argue whether it is having nine consecutive #1 hit singles in Texas under his belt that has garnered him staying power, or that he is killing it in the social media world with over 2 million views on YouTube and over 3 million streams globally on Spotify. Maybe it’s his 3 venerated album releases, or maybe because he can not only bat a full house on a 200 plus dates a year touring average, but also rope in crowds on a first time performance in an unfamiliar town. While impressive, all those distinctions can come and go in the world of music. The reason for his staying power turns out to be quite a simple one. And that is because Josh Ward is country music blood to bone, and both Josh Ward and country music are simply not going to go away.
Chris Shrader grew up in the small town of Pulaski, TN, where the local store had a sign reading, “Population: 99, More or Less.” His songs and singing style reflects the music that surrounded him growing up such as Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt and Reba. But his music is also flavored by the eclectic rock music he listened to as a teenager: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, CCR, Jimi Hendrix, Smashing Pumpkins, and the Foo Fighters, among others. Mix in a dash of contemporary country, and you have a soulful, rocking style of traditional country music that is Chris Shrader’s sound alone.

When Waterloo Revival’s Cody Cooper met his bandmate George Birge in middle school, he inspired his new friend to express himself through music — a path that drastically affected both their lives. “I’d sang in choir and stuff, but I’d never taken it any further,” George admits. “But by seventh grade I was hooked and Cody and I were writing songs together.” The duo continued to play together through high school, but parted ways so the guys could pursue an education. Cody headed to the University of North Texas in Denton, while George stayed in their hometown of Austin to attend the University of Texas. The pair, who’d remained close through college, would play together during Cody’s visits back home. By 2012, their musical chemistry was undeniable and George made the hard sell, convincing Cody to return home in order for them to focus all their energy into music.

To listen to DrakeWhite’s music is to fully experience the soul and rhythm of his upbringing in the Appalachian foothills of Northeastern Alabama. The undeniable sound of his soulful voice has whipped concert audiences across the country into a frenzy as Drake and his band, The Big Fire, raise the roof and summon spirits to life onstage. It’s equal parts Baptist tent revival and amped-up southern rock festival. As you watch Drake crank the energy level up higher and higher throughout the night, you feel as if you’d walked in on a live gospel album backed up by all-stars from The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Of course those acts hit musical pay dirt recording in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in the late ‘60s and ‘70s, a little over two hours west of Drake’s tiny hometown of Hokes Bluff. The same fire that drives Drake to pour his entire being in to those performances also demands that he continue exploring and refining that country soul sound. It’s all captured in the line, “Trying to stay lost in the moment while we know it’s flying past/We’re just getting started/It’s gonna be a long, long run.” “I do this because it makes me happy,” Drake explains. “I have a great life. I have a great band, and we’re going to be doing this the rest of our lives. I feel it.”

There are some rock ‘n’ roll influences there, but it is country, aggressive and energetic.” His voice is as raw as unvarnished wood with a smoky texture reflective of the backwoods bars where he honed his unbridled stage craft.
