It is that drive, paired with raw talent and business savvy, that took John King out of a little mountain town in Georgia and into the spotlight opening for award-winning artists, playing over 150 dates per year, prior to having a booking agent.
John took serious interest in guitar when he realized that he could figure out how to play his favorite songs, but then went on to modify them. “That’s when I realized that I could write my own music. I started simply by playing familiar melodies and turning them into funny songs with lyrics about my friends.” In 2013, Black River Entertainment signed John King to their artist roster and one of the first steps since signing with Black River Entertainment is the newly signed deal with the Nashville based booking agency William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Currently, John is in the studio recording his debut album on Black River Entertainment and continues to tour.

In the life of a working musician, everything hinges on the connection made with fans, and SamRiggs‘ ability to draw his listeners completely into his world comes as naturally to him as breathing. He describes that synergy with his faithfuls as “rabid,” and their die-hard support is a fire and gasoline concoction that fuels his songwriting. He has accomplished this bond with his fans because, in a nut shell, Sam writes the stories of the people. Music travels fast, and Sam’s steady pursuit on the heels of his own widely proceeding reputation is a marathon that he admits leaves him breathless.

Raised in Corvallis, Oregon, Jackson Michelson kicked off his country career on the West Coast with a sound that blended the rootsy twang of the American South with the sunny, feel-good spirit of the Pacific Coast. Although Nashville lays 2,300 miles to the southeast, Michelson focused on his home turf first and built an audience of West Coast fans who were drawn to his high-energy shows and relatable songwriting. By the time he moved to Nashville, he’d already spent years on the road, growing his fan base show-by-show and earning a record contract with Curb Records in the process.
Songs like “The Good Life,” which has since become a popular track on SiriusXM radio, helped spread Michelson’s music across the country. Most of the grunt work, though, was done on the road, where he’s delivered more than 100 shows per year and has opened for artists like Lee Brice, Blake Shelton and Frankie Ballard. Now with a record deal under his belt, Michelson is prepping for the next phase of his career. There are new shows to play, new songs to be written and new opportunities to explore. It’s safe to say it’s been a wild ride for the man who grew up in the “Grass Seed Capital of the World.”
