About Craig Campbell (Fri., Nov. 5)
Almost two years have passed since country hitmaker Craig Campbell has released new music. But in a world fueled by the smoke and mirror act of overnight success, Campbell has long been admired for his patience and persistence on the road less traveled. A consistent balancing act of traditional values and modern industry trends, Campbell is also considered by many to be one of the most talented yet under the radar stars, across all genres. And now, his highly anticipated single, “It’s About Time,” marks Campbell’s first independent release since parting ways with his former label, Broken Bow Records. It also highlights the first track the charismatic charmer has co-produced, along with playing acoustic guitar and piano, and singing his own harmonies. But this song is no stranger to the set list. In fact, Campbell has seized every opportunity in the last two years to deliver this sultry ballad to a captivated audience with just his airtight vocals and a piano.
After all, the magic of the keys brought him his hunger for music as a child. The good ole’ down home boy grew up playing his mother’s piano and singing in church. After graduating high school, he took a job as a corrections officer in his hometown of Lyons, Georgia. But music never left his side. Taking a cue from the sounds of classic country and idols like Travis Tritt and Randy Travis, Campbell started a band and played local and national bar gigs. When the guitar player quit, Campbell took that as a sign to chase his dreams all the way to Nashville, TN.
With two rolls of quarters and a roll of dimes given to him by his mother for gas money, Campbell barely made it into town. Starting in 2002, the young hopeful would spend the next several years paying his dues the old-fashioned way. A demo singer by day and Lower Broadway gigger by night, Campbell was eventually connected to a soon to be signed artist who needed a keyboard player. He and fellow South Georgia native Luke Bryan hit it off and Campbell got the job. A year and a half long keyboard stint with Tracy Byrd soon followed, and on his non travel days, he took over as bandleader down at The Stage on Tuesday nights. His smooth chops and hot-blooded stage presence soon caught the eye of industry execs and in 2009, Campbell signed with Bigger Picture Group.
About Jason Nix (Fri., Nov. 12)
Years before Jason Nix hit the highway, playing nightly shows that mixed the modern twang of country music with the southern spirit of blue-collar rock & roll, he grew up working on cars with his father. Music and automobiles ran in the family. One minute, a young Jason would find himself accompanying his dad to band practice, where the older Nix would play bluegrass songs. The next minute, the two Nix men would have their heads buried in an engine, diagnosing some mechanical issue while a nearby radio blasted country songs.
The experience left a permanent mark on Nix, who bought a 1971 Chevelle not long after college and began restoring it. As his own music career took off — not only as an acclaimed front man, but also as a songwriter and sought-after instrumentalist — so did the Chevelle’s complete overhaul “It’s my time machine,” he says of the vehicle. “There’s no radio and no AC, and it’s my gauge whenever I’m writing songs. If my car had a radio, what would I want to hear when I’m driving it? That’s the feeling I want to chase. The freedom that car makes me feel is the sound I want to make.”
Born in Nashville, Nix moved to Mississippi as a 5-year-old. His upbringing was a musical one, filled with the down-home sounds of bluegrass and country. George Strait, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek, and Travis Tritt were childhood favorites, and as Nix grew older, he added rock-influenced artists like the Allman Brothers, the Eagles, and Charlie Daniels Band to the mix. That broad range of influences helped shape Nix’s own music, which he began playing as a member of a regionally touring band in high school. Unable to shake his lifelong connection to Nashville, he moved back to Tennessee one day after his graduation.
About Eric Burgett (Fri., Nov. 19)
Nashville-based Eric Burgett grew up driving tractors and chasing dreams, listening to some of his favorite artists. With his Illinois farm boy upbringing and studying classical piano from an early age, his roots, training, and education run deep and wide. Burgett had several regular performances on an old upright piano at his parents’ tavern, The Korn Krib, as well as during the offerings on Sundays at Latham United Methodist Church. In 2012, Burgett made the move to Nashville to pursue his country music dreams and learning from some of the best writers and artists. In Fall 2017, Eric signed with Bow to Stern Management, headed by Grammy-nominated producer Matt McClure.
Eric’s career has been full of opportunities on the stage, where the piano-playing country singer has landed opening slots and guest appearances for the likes of Rodney Atkins, Lee Brice, Chris Stapleton, Charlie Worship, Phil Vassar, Frankie Ballard, Jana Kramer, and Craig Morgan.
About Granger Smith (Sat., Nov. 20)
Over the course of his groundbreaking career, Granger Smith has amassed a massive and rabid audience now known as “Yee Yee Nation” built through heavy touring and grassroots fan engagement. He now has a social media following exceeding eight and half million along with more than one billion online video views. Signed to BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records, Smith broke onto the national scene with Remington, an album that garnered him the No. 1 smash “Backroad Song.” Smith was also awarded a BMI Country Award for writing, producing, publishing and performing “Backroad Song” and followed it with the Top Five hit, “If The Boot Fits.” “Backroad Song” was one of the Top 10 Most Played Country singles of 2016 according to Mediabase and has been certified RIAA PLATINUM. His album When The Good Guys Win spawned the hit “Happens Like That” that has been certified RIAA GOLD. Not only has Granger stacked major accolades as an artist, but he also released his first-ever book If You’re City, If You’re Country, which immediately hit No. 1 on Amazon best-selling lists.
Known as an artist but also for his alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr., his family’s YouTube series “The Smiths” and his iconic outdoor apparel company, Yee Yee Apparel, Smith is a jack of all trades. Additionally, Granger and his wife Amber Smith started The River Kelly Fund to bring awareness and invest in children in need, arts and education, wildlife preservation, military, veteran and first responder assistance, donor affiliations, and many more organizations in honor of their son River Kelly Smith. Taking all of these experiences and channeling them into good, Smith released his 10th studio album called Country Things, which ultimately showcases the man, the father, the performer and bona fide artist Smith has become.
