McKenna & Phil
The beginning of this real life story starts much like a country song. After a few long years personally, McKenna found herself in a bar, drowning the pain away in the comfort of the soulful, soothing voice captivating the room.
The all-American girl mustered up the courage to introduce herself to the tatted-up guy named Phil and propose a collaboration -- one that would eventually lead to a graceful blend of country twang and soulful rock. The rest, as they say, is history.
This dynamic duet spent the summer writing, revising, recording, performing, and ultimately building a strong fan base whose encouragement and support has affirmed this inevitable pairing. McKenna & Phil offer a familiar yet intriguing sound and find a fresh way to write songs about timeless subjects like love, heartbreak, and a good time. They produce a sound, a look, and a passion that is not only to be desired, but also to be cherished. Expect to be charmed and moved by this up-and-coming country-rock duo.
McKenna & Phil have shared the stage with talented artists such as Montgomery Gentry, Tracy Lawrence, Eric Church, Easton Corbin, Randy Houser, Colt Ford, Sharon Jones of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Eric Baker, Angie Aparo and Levi Lowrey, Gino Vanelli, Kingbilly

Holman Autry Band
Holman Autry Band - a little bit of Hank, a little bit Metallica, and a healthy dose of "Southern Rock" and "Country" - that is all a part of the Holman Autry Band sound. If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, and Govt Mule,
you are sure to love the Holman Autry Band.
The Holman Autry Band is comprised of members from Madison County, GA, just outside of Athens, who have been playing together to create the original Holman Autry Band sound and style. They have been friends now for many years. The youngest Band member is 24 and the oldest Band member is 30, as of December 2011. The Holman Autry Band has had the honor of playing with some National Touring Artists that you have probably heard of, including the Zac Brown Band, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, and others as well. They have been playing in so many venues and have been welcomed everywhere they go. They are constantly making so many new friends and fans alike and thank you all for that.
Whether you call it Southern Rock or Country they have what it takes. The debut album on CD, self titled Holman Autry Band, was released in April 2007. The second album on CD, titled Sweet Southern Wind, was released in March 2009. On December 10, 2010, the Holman Autry Band has released its third offering of music to the world.
