Chance Anderson

From sharing a piano bench with his Grandmother, to opening for Joe Walsh, Dierks Bentley, The Eli Young Band, Wade Bowen, Stoney LaRue, Randy Rogers Band, Cody Canada and the Departed, Reckless Kelly, Aaron Watson and many other great artists… Chance Anderson has realized his fate. This 2007 ‘All American’ graduate has an undeniable talent that stretches far beyond the city limits of Empire, Oklahoma. Although he’s been singing in church since he could talk, his passion for this life was unrealized until he began writing, as a ‘release’, at age 16. This singer/songwriter has had no shortage of hard times in his young life, but says he is thankful for them all… as this is where his inspiration resides. His ‘inspirations’ earned him two nominations for male vocalist of the year, along with songwriter of the year, in the 2007 Payne County Line Awards. Chance’s success isn’t surprising for anyone who has ever heard his music. The reality of his songs combined with the emotion in his voice would have you believing he was a true veteran of life.

August 7 Zack Walther Band w/Special Guest: Bryan Hayes
Aug 7 @ 9:00 pm

zack walther band

This band fills bars and dance halls with sounds ranging from harmonica, whistling, and three-part harmonies to gritty, chest-pounding rock and their style of Texas country music.

Bryan Hayes Farther Down The Line

Bryan Hayes crafts personal narratives with a novelist’s eye (“Let’s Ride”) and a poet’s elegance (“Small Town Amazing Grace”). Clear evidence: The Memphis area resident’s seamless Farther Down the Line. Hayes’ excellent new collection spotlights a rapidly rising songwriter growing exponentially (the title track). “This record was definitely written with more confidence,” Hayes explains. “I was not afraid to touch on subject matter that I might have shied away from a few years ago. I now know what a gift this career is, so I feel like I owe it to my folks to be honest and open. I want the songs to come from my heart.”

Aug 8 @ 9:00 pm

Arabella Jones

Arabella Jones has accomplished more by the age of 19 than some artists do in a lifetime. As her star continues to rise and her dreams of being heard on country radio come to fruition, Arabella could not be happier to share her signature sound with the world. Her vocals are edgy and powerful, with outlaw country and southern rock influences, but still she manages to let her femininity shine through, setting her apart from the crowd.

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Arabella was surrounded by music of all types, but drawn to country from an early age. She recalls, “My whole family knows how to sing and play a couple instruments- I play guitar and piano. We always liked to harmonize together to songs on the radio. I am the first one to go after it as a career though, and they have all been very supportive.” Upon joining the choir in Middle School, she was instantly hooked and began to sharpen her powerful voice for the world of country music.

Those who are close to the firecracker future Rock Star are not surprised by her successes. Her friends and family attest that she was born to be a star, but the realization was not apparent to Arabella until 2010. “As a child, I have memories of singing and dancing in my little red cowgirl hat and boots to Shania Twain songs, but I didn’t realize I had a passion for music until I was in middle school and my mom bribed me to try out for the talent show. I made it into the show and got my first taste of performing… it felt amazing!”

Realizing the power of today’s social media, Arabella launched her YouTube Channel in 2011 where she began posting videos of her original songs and covers of her favorite country artists. Before long, her YouTube channel had surpassed 1 Million views and tens of thousands of subscribers! With a fan base growing, much attributed to her charming personality showing through on YouTube, she soon was verified on Twitter amassing over 100,000 followers. Arabella says that her YouTube followers have been an inspiration through her budding musical career and she loves sharing her life with them through videos and social media.

Though her early inspirations range from Shania Twain to Carrie Underwood, to Johnny Cash, she is also drawn to the edgier side of today’s country. Her live performance and raw energy have been compared to the undeniable talent of Miranda Lambert and a female version of Eric Church and Brantley Gilbert. Arabella wants to remind the world that females can rock just as hard as the guys can. “Women often get labeled as ‘girly music’ but I’m here to show that our music can kick ass and speak to anyone, no matter who you are! It’s time to break down some boundaries.”

Living in Texas has not slowed Arabella from diving right into the Nashville music scene and adopting it as her second home. She has gained attention from many sponsors, including Monster Energy who even designed a special edition drink container in her likeness. Most recently, Arabella is working with the Kyle Busch Foundation lending her support to bring awareness to NASCAR legend Kyle Busch’s wife Samantha’s “Pretty In Pink Foundation.” In 2014, she participated in CMA Fest for the first time as an artist performing at several events across the city. “I just love how music overflows all around the city of Nashville.” Arabella gushes over her cherished time in the city, “Almost everyone there sings, plays instruments, and music is just a part of the air.”

She has worked with some of the industry’s top songwriters and producers while honing in on her signature sound for her debut EP. She most recently finished up her new single “Runaway Rush” with producers Grammy nominated Dale Oliver, and Country Music Star Bucky Covington. One of her biggest bucket list partnerships would have to be Hank Williams Jr. “He is such an Icon,” Jones says, “I think anything he puts out is just timeless.” Arabella writes most of her own music, including her upcoming single, but is open to all other writers’ work as well since she is appreciative of any song that moves her. “I feel so strongly that the purpose of music is to move people… and if I can write or sing something that affects people that deeply, then I have achieved my goal!”

Aug. 14 Mike Ryan w/ Special Guest: Parker McCollum
Aug 14 @ 9:00 pm

Mike Ryan

In 2010 Mike Ryan rose above 80 other competitors to win the 95.9 The Ranch Pickin’ Party singer/songwriter competition, and every indication pointed to more musical success in the near future. His EP “The First One” was released that summer and produced 2 singles, “Slow Hand” and “Won’t Let it Show” that both reached the top 25 on the Texas Music Chart. Educated and easy going, Mike’s musical influences are as vast and varied as growing up in the internet age allows. Some favorites of his would include The Allman Brothers, The Eagles, ZZ Top The Rolling Stones, AC/DC….Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Bill Withers….Bob Dylan, Elton John, Stevie Wonder… and they continue on down the list for about a mile and a half. Some of his favorite guitar players would be SRV, Gibbons, Mayer and Paisley. With his first full length album “Night Comes Falling”, Mike established himself as a prominent figure among his peers and has solidified his own promising future in country music. Ryan emanates a competitive spirit when it comes to his career and his strong work ethic is credited for his dedication to his craft. “I don’t want to let things slip away because I didn’t work hard enough, or somebody else was better and worked harder.” His hard work has paid off. He spent his college years at the University of North Texas which gave him the opportunity to be influenced and inspired by the large, eclectic musical community there as well. Mike Ryan is a genuine guy with genius talent, and the vision to surround himself with first rate musicians to help him maintain his direction, and you can bet that when the curtains roll back they’ll light up the stage. In March of 2013 Mike’s song writing talent led him to a publishing deal with Sea Gayle Music out of Nashville, Tennessee. Sea Gayle is widely considered one of the top publishing companies in Nashville and in country music. Later, in the fall of 2013 Mike added the APA talent agency out of Nashville to handle his tour booking. At an early age, he’s poured a strong foundation for limitless and long-standing career. The strength of his ever-expanding guitar and vocal ability, as well as the desire to organize and maintain a band of bad asses, prove he is building a career to weather any storm. When it comes to Mike Ryan, whether it’s listening to recordings or seeing him live, you realize you just experienced something special. The good kind of special. And then BAM! …he finds a place in your list of favorites. You want more. You want to do it again. Mike Ryan is the real deal in a refreshingly down-to-earth package. Sincere smile included.

ParkerMcCollum

Honesty in music is as important to Parker McCollum as breathing. He rejects the music of mainstream, not for its fabricated artists or over-produced sound but, for its lack of creativity and genuine stories of truth and passion. As a musician and performer, he looks up to the art of pioneers such as Ryan Bingham, Ryan Adams and Townes Van Zant, artists who have lived their songs and have the battle scars to prove it. A mix of Americana, Texas Country and Indie Rock is the genesis of McCollum’s music career and he channels his creativity into delivering a genuine sound all his own. Kicking things off with his first single, “Highway” is a driving introduction to this spirited artist who aims to inspire and entertain in a way only one who declares he has no story of his own to tell can, by making one up with words and music.
