Artist Lineup

Aaron Taylor
Aaron Taylor is someone who you can describe as being born to play music. This Jacksonville native grew up with both of his parents in the music industry and owes most of his talent to them. Growing up, his musical influences were James Taylor, Little River Band, The Eagles and Earth, Wind and Fire, but later found his home in country music. Now residing in Lake County (Eustis) he continues to entertain others, whether it be performing in front of thousands or simply playing a small acoustic venue. Although fairly new to the scene, Aaron has already had the privilege...
Andy Velo
Andy hales from small town Suwanee, GA just south of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Where he recognized his passion for writing and performing at a young age. After starting to play the Georgia circuits, he knew that where he would find himself in the years to come. I knew very early this is what I loved and there was anything else I saw myself doing, says Andy. I remember being asked in middle school to pick my track for my career, and to me there was only one option. His country/rock sound mixed with his high-energy performances has created a...
Ash Bowers
Growing up in a working class family in Jackson, Tennessee, Ash Bowers would need a lot more than dreams to make it to the country music capitol 130 miles east on I-40. It would require determination, and commitment, which came easy as he traveled 260 miles a day to Nashville for writing appointments and rehearsals, discovering his voice and love for songwriting along the way. The requirements guided Bowers to make some very valuable and influential friends in the industry and over time, inspired Bowers to write a full album worth of songs that are currently on his upcoming Wide...
Bottleneck

While living a simple small town life with his wife and children, things changed two years ago when the mill Jacky worked for full time suddenly closed.

That's when he decided to turn his hobby of making music into a full time career. Jacky joined a group...
Brent Cobb
One of Nashville’s most promising singer-songwriters would have been content if his music had never been heard beyond the Georgia state line. Today, Brent Cobb’s songs are sung by stars such as Luke Bryan, David Nail, Kellie Pickler and the Eli Young Band. He writes for one of Music Row’s top publishing houses and has just completed his first Nashville recording as an artist. Brent says he never intended to be known much beyond his hometown, but fate, family and his fellow Georgians conspired to change that plan. Brent can distinctly remember watching his father and...
Brian Davis
From the time he was six years old growing up in the small rural town of Bilboa, North Carolina, Brian Davis was a student of music and studying the process of music. “My grandpa and dad played all the honky-tonks where I’m from,” he says with a smile. “I can remember from the time I was six and seven-years-old I was in honky-tonks.” By the time he was eight, his dad was taking him to gigs and Brian was tuning their guitars. “I was on top of the world,” he says, “because I was tuning guitars for heroes of mine....

Born where the Oklahoma panhandle meets the sprawling Colorado countryside, Clare grew up driving silage trucks, combines, eighteen-wheelers and spent countless hours behind the wheel of a John Deere tractor, all the while soaking up music on any radio station that could be tuned in. Clapton, George Strait, The Stones, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and The Eagles created the musical backdrop of her...
Clark Hill Band
As Clark Hill has grown into a full band, traveling nationally and gearing up to play with artist such as Trace Adkins, Montgomery Gentry, Wynonna Judd, Love and Theft, Craig Morgan, Lonestar and many others on what has been billed as “Country’s Best Cruise”, it seems that what is happening with the boys now is so far from the start just a year ago, as a duo, just dreaming of playing original music. From starting off in dive bars and back yards, the guys are growing into stages bigger than the venues that got them started. When founders...
Coolio
Coolio was one of the first rappers to balance pop accessibility with gritty, street-level subject matter and language. Yet despite his nods to hardcore, his music was clearly more happy-go-lucky at heart; he shared the West Coast scene's love of laid-back '70s funk, and that attitude translated to his music far more often than Dr. Dre's Death Row/G-funk axis. Most of Coolio's hits were exuberant, good-time party anthems (save for his moody signature song "Gangsta's Paradise"), and he created a goofy, ingratiating persona in the videos that supported them. Coolio took the sound of West Coast hip-hop to wider audiences...
DeeJay Silver
DJ Silver has been a top touring DJ/remixer/producer for over 10 years, having played in premier venues in virtually every major market in the US, Mexico and Canada.

Combining a rock influence...
Gwen Sebastian
"My motto is, 'Don't settle,'" Gwen Sebastian declares. "Don't give in. If you're not liking what you're doing in your life, you're not going to be the person you want to be." That's the guiding principle that led Sebastian to leave her tiny rural hometown to go for broke in the topsy-turvy Nashville music world. It's what led her to spend the last several years paying her dues entertaining crowds all over the country, earning one fan at a time the old-fashioned way. And it's what shaped the full, rich musical personality evident to all that hear her music. ...
JJ Lawhorn
JJ Lawhorn is the epitome of a good ol’ southern boy. With hunting, fishing, and working on his truck as just a few of his hobbies, this rural Virginian lives a life most country artists only sing about. “I grew up working with my hands—you know—doing good hard physical labor,” says the 19-year-old musician with a thick drawl. “I’m proud of my heritage. I’m proud of where I come from.” That sentiment rings true throughout JJ’s new single, “Stomping Grounds,” which encourages each individual to take pride in what they consider to be their ‘stomping grounds.’ The single, co-written...
Justin Grimes

Performing primarily as a solo-acoustic act, Justin can still be found sharing the stage with some of the region's most promising groups. Though currently an unsigned, independent musician,...
Lenny Cooper
Lenny Cooper was born in Jacksonville N.C. and first came to the attention of many fans while performing on Average Joes co-founder Colt Ford's Declaration of Independence tour. Although he didn't have a band or DJ on stage, he quickly connected with fans, who easily relate to such tunes as "Country Folks Anthem," a track on Mud Dynasty which features AJE labelmate Charlie Farley, and "Adrenaline," performed with Brian King of the duo the Lacs, also signed to the label. And although country-rap (or hick-hop, or whatever you choose to label this type of music) is gaining solid ground (in...
Matt Stillwell
Matt is best known as a performer with a rowdy sense of fun, and that side of him is in full flower on the new CD. Its gem is "Shine," an anthem to the joys of the Mason jar and the moonshine produced in places like Matt's beloved western North Carolina. It's a song in a league with some of modern country's best sing-along anthems, and it is the perfect focal point. There is also "Whiskey Well," about the process of turning heartache into a party, “Sweet Sun Angel,” is a feel-good summertime anthem that evokes images of carefree days...
McKenzies Mill
They have been called country. They have been called rock n' roll. However you choose to describe them, there is no denying McKenzies Mill is causing quite a buzz in Music City!

Moccasin Creek

Such is the case with Moccasin Creek, a Tennessee based duo that mix old school Southern rock with country and hip hop to form a style like no one has ever heard. Their infectious new sound has invaded the stereos of tens of thousands of fans, from the ages of six to sixty. The...
Moonshine Bandits
When you add the ingredients of women, whiskey, 4 wheel drives, a twist of Johnny Cash meets the Beastie Boys, shake well & pour over ice - you get the Moonshine Bandits. California's favorite blue collar outlaws, known as the Moonshine Bandits, have taken their outlaw brand of country hip-hop to the next level on their new album “Whiskey & Women” on Suburban Noize Records. “’Whiskey and Women’ tells a story of our life out on the road. Our motto has always been to live for the moment, which is exactly what we try and do with our...
Old Southern Moonshine Revival
In late 2005, the first song was written. By late 2006, the skeleton for the first record was laid out and scratch recordings were underway. In February of 2007, the first show was played to a small room of around 150 people and Old Southern Moonshine Revival was born. In October of 2007, Old Southern Moonshine Revival released their self-titled debut album to a sold out Ziggy's crowd in Winston-Salem, NC… Flash forward five years to 2012.

With influences such as Tracy Lawrence, Luke Bryan, Rob Thomas, Dave Grohl, and even Ozzy Osbourne it is effortless to understand these three young men are cementing their own path in the music industry. Radio Romance has been heavily touring...
Ross Coppley
Born and raised in Lexington, N.C., Coppley has been singing since he was just 4 years old. Having put some rock bands together throughout high school, he found that sitting behind a drum kit wasn’t where he belonged. “I knew I wanted to be the person entertaining the crowd,” says Coppley, 26. So he traded his drumsticks for a guitar, and he’s been performing up and down the east coast ever since. Not your typical born‐and‐raised‐on‐country story, Coppley’s was more of a natural evolution. “When I was doing the rock thing in high school, I found more and more...

After beating out thousands of bands in the Southeast division of the competition, the guys went on to L.A. to compete in the final five. As King states, “Since the battle,...
The Lacs
"People see stuff that is already there and ask why I dream stuff that never was and ask why not". This saying describes the LACS, they saw what was already there, had big dreams to be there, and asked the music industry why not? Their hick hop and southern rock sound is stronger than the moonshine they drink. The LACS which is the famous short abbreviation of the Loud Ass Crackers are from the sandy dirt roads of Baxley, Georgia. A South Georgia town more famous for its sawmills and turpentine stills than for having a successful southern rap...
