New on The Show:

TammRae Keener
“Cowboy Saturday Night” - “Put on your dancing boots” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

She was fortunate enough to be involved with music and the music business from a very young age and started singing when she just a child mostly in church. She began to work in all different roles at Go-Roc-Co-Pop Records becoming part of a musical orchestra, playing flute, singing, writing music, learning to sing backup harmony and even tutored younger children in music and instruments.
She visited Nashville Record Press several times as the record company was pressing singles and albums for release when vinyl records were still in use.
In 2009 she was voted Female Vocalist of the year at the North West Georgia Gospel Music Fan Awards.
As things happen with music and musicians, people came and went from Go-Roc-Co-Pop Records and a musical era ended, but not the experience she had gained from being a part of it.
In 2013 she began releasing the first of her traditional country project titled “A Good Ole Country Girl” recorded in co-operation with Country Discovery Records and a roster of top notch Nashville musicians who play in true traditional style. 
In June 2014 saw the release of two new singles to radio.

Blair Mathews
Fabulous Day” - “I do like that new single “- Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Country Record label: Stoneyhill Records
Current Location: Scottsdale, AZ

Fueled by an unwavering work ethic, and refined and strengthened by growing up on a small farm, Blair Mathews' creative journey has led to the release of his debut, self-penned country radio single, "It's About Us," on Stoneyhill Records. 

The song is from his upcoming EP, due out in the spring of 2014. The project was produced and engineered by Grammy Award winner Chad Carlson, whose impressive credits include work with Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood and The Hunger Games soundtrack.

Mathews grew up on a farm in the north west and his first musical memories are hearing the songs of Waylon Jennings, Tom T. Hall and Merle Haggard. Learning to play drums as a child, he went on to front rock bands throughout high school and toured extensively after college at Trinity University Mathews became a successful demo singer and jingle writer, composing and recording numerous ads heard on radio stations across the U.S.
The debut single, "It's About Us," (featured on CDX 586 and on Play MPE) is described as "an infectious, up-tempo anthem that holds a special meaning to the artist. "The song is built on three words: dreams, faith and trust," said Mathews. "The storyline really comes from my personal relationship with my wife and the need to work hard to make it last."
Impacting Country Radio in June 2014 saw the follow up single "Fabulous Day" land on the DJ’s desk produced and engineered by Grammy Award winner Chad Carlson. The song has a very much Keith Urban influence/ vibe to it so “get ready to turn it up for a perfect celebration of summer”!

Blacktop Gypsy
“Daddy Song” (Heather Stalling / Gypsy Publishing; ASCAP) "A great song for Father’s day... It’s a stunning song" - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Americana/Country
Record Label: Winding Road Music
Members: Andie Kay Joyner (Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar), Heather Stalling (Fiddle, Acoustic Guitar & Back-Up Vocals), Phillip Cardon (drums/percussion), Jay New (bass guitar), Steven Cooper (lead guitar), Darcy Starcher (background vocals)

Andie Kay Joyner and Heather Stalling had to experience life before they felt ready to write about it. When they met in the early 1990's, both were already accomplished musician/vocalists. Stalling was an award winning fiddler, coming off a two-year run as a support player in Branson, MO. Joyner was still a teenager, but had sung in front of thousands of people at countless performances. Each had grown up in musical families that exposed them to bluegrass, folk, and traditional country music.

For the next decade, the girls further groomed themselves for their own band by separately backing Texas artists, such as Mark David Manders, Max Stalling, Johnny Lee, Tommy Alverson, Bob Schneider, and others. The girls took a Tuesday night residency at the legendary Dallas honky-tonk, Adair's Saloon for almost a year. After several failed relationships, a handful of song-worthy misfortunes, and countless all-night jam sessions, their songwriting began to draw from very specific situations! Soon, there was more than enough material to complete an album. Stalling and Joyner even co-produced their debut CD, BLACKTOP GYPSY, with Austin resident Adam Odor at famed Cedar Creek Studios. The album is a montage of styles representing the songwriters' varied influences and phases of musical interest. The traditional country material one might expect of a fiddler and country vocalist is certainly there. The band moved from the studio to the stage early 2006 when the girls formed the band and jumped into the lime light of the Texas Music scene when they won the BW Stevenson Songwriter’s Competition and placed as finalists in the Shiner Rising Star Competition. Striving for perfection they chose to continue honing their skills
and putting together the band that could best reflect the music they wanted to share with the world.
In 2011 the current band roster was put into place and they entered the studio to record their sophomore release WHIRLWIND. Produced by Grammy winner Lloyd Maines (Dixie Chicks) it was released September 20, 2011 (UK iTunes) and packed with ten solid tracks, this album caught the attention of Winding Road Music, landing the group their first recording contract. This far the release has garnered two chart topping singles, “Too Far From Texas” and “Traci”, on both the Texas Music and Texas regional Radio charts.
However, don't let their Texas roots and success give the impression that their sound is only for the Lone Star State - the group also receives national exposure via internet, college and public radio as well as weekly sales in these areas.
