Matt Rogers

“If you want someone’s attention—be different.” Matt Rogers has used that approach since he began performing. Bringing the freshest sound in country music, Matt Rogers delivers his unique approach to entertainment every time he steps in front of a microphone. As a singer and a songwriter, Matt’s original music is rich with emotion and struggle. As a cover musician, he brings a unique texture to songs and presents them in a different way—without disturbing the integrity of the original version.

Country music great TG Sheppard said of him, “You're the real deal man. You are the total package. You're a great singer, a great picker, and a great songwriter. I will remember the first time I saw you and it was right here when you arrived. And you HAVE arrived.” Nashville singer/songwriter Melonie Cannon said, "Loved the tone of your voice. That gravely sound in your voice...that's not something you can just pull off. That's a very cool sound—very unique. We were trying to figure out is there somebody that you sound like—and I don't know anybody with that voice—that's a good thing. Keep writing. I dig it.”

In May 2016, May was nominated for the Josie Awards as Country Male Artist for 2016. In November 2015, Matt was awarded The Georgia Country Awards Overall Artist of the Year. In March 2015, Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and CMT selected "I Was Raised" for a songwriting achievement award. Later that year, "I Was Raised" went on to be selected by NSAI as a Top 40 song. He was a finalist in the Georgia Music Awards for Country Male Artist and Music Video of the Year for "I Was Raised." He was selected in August 2015 by NewTown Macon as one of ten artists to contribute an original song for Macon Music Volume 1--a project that best represents the music talent in Central Georgia.

As Matt transitions to the next phase of his music career, he knows that he will not let go of the past. It’s the bumps, bruises, and heartache that make for the next country hit that he will record. He will continue to write, perform, and meet the people who listen to and embody the southern traditions and way of life.

Ray Fulcher

Born and bred in Harlem, Ray Fulcher can almost smell the azaleas that flourish 20 minutes away at the Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters. While growing up in small town east Georgia, Ray learned the values of the simple life, what it means to earn a buck and how a country song means more than honky tonkin’ and sad songs, it’s about a way of life.  

Growing up on the likes of Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson, Keith Whitley, George Strait and Johnny Cash, those artists would mold not only the music he listened to, but also what kind of life he led. Throughout his tenure at the University of Georgia, while earning his two degrees, he spent his nights scraping money together to frequent the Georgia Theater.There he was inspired by artists such as Luke Bryan, Corey Smith, Eric Church, and The Zac Brown Band. Their early years gave Ray the desire to pick up the guitar and begin writing songs about his small town upbringing, dirt road memories, football games and pretty girls lettin’ their hair down.

Ray has spent the last several years playing live music all over the Southeast and is currently playing with his band, County Line. They have opened for the likes of David Nail, Dustin Lynch, Lee Brice, The Marshall Tucker Band and Craig Morgan within the last year and are showing no signs of slowing down.

In May 2014, Ray took the next step and made the big move to The Music City. Since moving to Nashville, Ray hs been focused on writing new music with other songwriters and playing shows around town!

Velcro Pygmies

The Velcro Pygmies are everything that's right about rock n roll. Loud, fast, larger than life, and in your face. Big lights, foul language, tight pants and the occasional boob. They've been compared to the likes of Van Halen, Poison, Bon Jovi,and Air Supply (They've got a sensitive side too). If you like "Big Rock" this is the band for you. If you are more into the "Hippie" thing don't waste your time; you'll hate them.

The band released its 6th record in 07, American Muscle, which is a collection of 10 original arena rock anthems designed to blow the 6x9s right out of your Trans Am, and an inspired cover of Sweet Home Alabama. Their relentless tour cover of Sweet Home Alabama. Their relentless tour schedule carries them all across the eastern part of the US with the occasional trip to Texas where they are wanted for numerous traffic violations. The band's fan base encompasses all ages races and genders plus animals really like them too.

The Pygmies consist of Jason "DEP" Reed (take a look at his picture and you'll know why he's called that) on bass, Chris Eddins, the world's most entertaining drummer. Angel the blonde mohawk axeman, and Cameron, wants to be David Lee Roth, Flener on lead vocals. The band is a unique blend of personalities and energies that create a massive rock experience. It's a trip back to when rock n roll was fun and entertaining and not political or angry.

Benton Blount

A finalist on NBC's "America's Got Talent," Benton Blount knows to trust his instincts. Repeatedly through his career, he has moved forward by walking through an open door, even if making that step defied logic at the time.

"I've had to stop wondering why all my dreams seem to keep coming true and moving me forward," Blount says. "I've learned to trust that singing and writing songs is what I m supposed to do, because every time I focus on my music, new opportunities suddenly present themselves."

"I know people look at me, with my tattoos and appearance, and they don't think I look like a country singer, he says. When I sing, I have a gruffness to my voice that s different than most country singers too. But when I start to talk, you can hear that I m as country as cornbread. And the songs, with their real-life stories and positive outlook on life, have more in common with country music than anything else. Country music is where I belong!"

Growing up in the North Carolina mountains, Benton Blount never picked up a guitar or a microphone, much less played a tune. At age 18, his music pastor stuck a microphone in front of him and to his and everyone's amazement, a beautiful voice was pouring out, thus sparking Benton's passion for singing and writing songs.

Jared Ashley

Jared Ashley

It’s no surprise that those closest to the up and coming Nashville singer and songwriter Jared Ashley, think of him as just a little bit of a stickler when it comes to details.

“It’s always been attention to the small things that have made the biggest impact to my career,” he says with a bit of a smile. “Whether it’s the pacing of the live show, the vocal harmonies or the way the bass and drums play off one another, all those things matter.” And little by little, all the elements have come together to make Jared Ashley one of Nashville’s most promising new artists.

Born in Hobbs, NM, near the oil fields on the Texas-New Mexico border, Ashley relocated to Newnan, GA with his dad as a small child. “Growing up, my parents listened to Alabama, Ronnie Milsap, Kenny Rogers. I was always around country music as a kid,” Jared recalls.

He received his first guitar at the age of 5 and it proved a constant friend to him throughout childhood. The Ashley family later returned to Hobbs during Jared’s sophomore year in high school and, not knowing a soul his own age, he began honing his guitar playing and writing music as a way to pass the time.

“That’s when I really sat down and got serious about writing songs and playing the guitar,” he says. “I was really just trying to consume my time with things other than being bored out of my mind,” he says. Inspired by the revitalization of country music in the early 90’s by artists like Travis Tritt and fellow Newnan native Alan Jackson, Jared came to claim country music as his own.

After high school, Jared joined the Navy, serving four years aboard the USS Independence and USS Kitty Hawk aircraft carriers. He spent much of that time stationed in Yokosuka, Japan while also serving two tours of duty in the Persian Gulf. “On long trips out to sea, there’s not a whole lot to do when you’re off duty. You can stare at water or you can play the guitar. And that’s when I got more serious about it.”

At the encouragement of his Navy buddies, Jared began playing acoustic gigs at George's Country Bar, located just off the naval base in Yokosuka. It was there his music caught the ear of a friend who introduced him to a contact with deep ties in the Nashville music community. With a year left on his commitment with the Navy, Jared made his first trip to Nashville and was instantly hooked on the town’s thriving scene.

Jared moved to Nashville the following year, assembling a band nearly as soon as he arrived. His talents quickly landed him the coveted weekend gig at the world-famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on lower Broadway. “Lower Broad is a boot camp,” Jared says. “You’re gonna meet a ton of people and you’re gonna learn a lot. It’ll either make you or break you.”

The gigs at Tootsie proved to be a tremendous break for Jared, giving him the opportunity to meet and impress numerous Music Row executives at his shows and make his first foray into the recording studio. It was there that Jared also met the booking agent who began to mold Jared into the road warrior he has become.

After placing fifth on Season Four of “Nashville Star” in 2006, Jared used the exposure to further his ability to tour and build a fan base as a live artist, even without the benefit of a record deal.

The many miles spent on the road have given Jared an even greater opportunity to hone his songwriting and test his material with his live audience. “I’m a songwriter first, and I became an artist because I wanted people to hear my songs,” Jared says. “I’m really enjoying the songs I’m writing more because they represent where I am in my life right now.”

Now more confident with his abilities to write songs as well as spot the special ones from other writers in the Nashville community, Ashley headed into the studio in 2010 with co-producer Bobby Terry to begin assembling an album for his fans to purchase at shows. The self-titled, self-financed project made it abundantly clear that he had grown into an artist fully capable of hanging with Nashville’s best.

The music also brought Jared to the attention of Blaster Entertainment, a multi-faceted Ohio-based entertainment company. Jared was soon signed for management representation, and it was an easy decision for both parties to sign him to a record deal when the company’s Blaster Records division launched a full Nashville operation in 2012 behind the release of albums by Hank Williams, Jr. and Aaron Lewis.

Ashley, who maintains an aggressive touring schedule playing more than 150 shows per year, is currently on a nationwide tour visiting country radio stations to promote his first single, “Last Train To Memphis.” The song, penned by Ashley with Nick Sturms and Jeremy McComb, is one of eleven tracks from his forthcoming Blaster Records release.

Jared’s single-minded determination can be found in the lyric of “Last Train To Memphis” -- ‘It’s a one-way track, there ain’t no going back.’ That dedication is finally paying off tenfold in the realization of his lifelong dreams.

Jared was born in Hobbs, NM, and at the age of three, relocated to Newnan, GA, where he spent most of his childhood. At the age of 5, he received his first guitar. By 10th grade, his family moved back to Hobbs, New Mexico, and Jared began writing music and playing guitar more.

After high school, he joined the Navy and was stationed in Japan. He played weekends at a local country bar in Tokyo. After he got out of the Navy, he moved to Nashville, and along with his band Dirty South, became the house band at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge.

Jared looks forward to bringing his music to millions of country music fans, and being able to showcase his ability to entertain.

Kasey Tyndall

Kasey Tyndall

Kasey Tyndall’s sweet southern charm is often rudely interrupted by an impressive collection of rock ’n’ roll t-shirts. AC/DC, Ramones and Guns ’n Roses — crop tops preferably.

“You can help me Mr. Dave, I have so many,” she says looking with wide, innocent eyes toward her manager when pressed to quantify her collection. “Stryper.  I just went on tour with them, that was awesome. I wear my Stryper shirt a lot. Some of my other favorite shirts are Bon Jovi, Loverboy, Lucinda Williams, Jason Isbell … ”

Yes, she calls her manager Mr. Dave and her agent Mr. Jay – that’s kind of her thing, recognizable by anyone raised in the south. But she says their name with respect and reverence instead of the sass and flare one would expect from a girl who prefers leather and denim over dresses and heels, just like she prefers a rowdy crowd dancing on a bar top over a seated one golf-clapping after each song.

Don’t be totally fooled — Tyndall isn’t a rocker hiding in a cowgirl town. Her Eastern North Carolina accent and penchant for aching love songs gives her away as a grounded country thoroughbred. The newly released “Everything Is Texas” is a heartbreak song so deep it nearly made the guy she wrote it about cry.

Each night on the road before playing "Everything Is Texas", Kasey Tyndall tells the story behind the song and how the guy she loved, a Texas-native, just disappeared on her.  No explanation - just up and left. “His face … I almost felt bad for him,” she says with guilty laughter as she recalls the night he turned up in her crowd and planted himself front row.

The heartfelt song was penned with the help of Lena Stone and Lainey Wilson.

Tyndall’s journey to Nashville was accelerated in 2014 when she won a radio station contest to sing “We Were Us” with Keith Urban. Opportunities came quickly after that late summer performance, including signing with WME’s Jay Williams for booking (Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley). The then college student was greener than new money when she moved to Music City — during her first co-write she had no idea she was working with Doug Johnson (Randy Travis, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts) until he stepped away and the other writer in the room, Nick Autry, said, “Do you know who that is?”

“Anyone that’s big … I get super nervous,” Tyndall says, the anxiety flushing her face even as she thinks about writing with some of the veterans and legends she’s sat down with. She’s has opportunity to be nervous a lot lately. Neil Mason from The Cadillac Three, Driver Williams from Eric Church’s band and Tommy Cecil are a few of the seasoned writers she’s worked with. A publishing deal with Sony ATV promises to bring more top-end talent to her door. After working with her, Cecil (Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, North Carolina’s Parmalee) agreed to produce her EP..

During a song like “Who I Ain’t”, a song on Tyndall's upcoming EP, the fire inside this fast-rising singer breaks containment. Between songs and offstage, Tyndall couldn’t be more approachable. She’s quiet, but increasingly confident about who she is, and who she ain’t. “I wasn’t the prettiest or most popular or anywhere remotely close to that,” she says recalling high school. Her multiplying fan base appreciates this and her rock anthems have become their anthem.

“You get on social media and you see society saying ‘That’s what you should look like.’ I instead wanna be a voice of ‘Hey it’s totally OK who you are, just like you are’ … I’m excited to not be the prettiest country singer on the circuit.”

Tyndall performed more than 100 tour dates in 2016, doing runs with the likes of Kane Brown, Granger Smith, Casey Donahew, and The Cadillac Three... and there appears to be no slowing down in 2017.  As Tyndall explains,“I love to sing and perform and I’m thankful for anyone who wants to listen.  It’s almost like my fans and I have this team.  It’s kinda the ‘Be who you are’ team.  And I’m blessed to have the best team in the world.”
