New on The Show

Rhett Walker Band

“Here’s To The Ones” -“It’s really contemporary and great to dance to” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre:  Southern Rock
Members: Rhett Walker, Kenny Davis,Joe Kane, Kevin Whitsett
Hometown: Nashville, TN   Current Location: Nashville, TN
Influences: Faith, Family, Country

Rhett Walker Band is a Southern rock and Christian rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. The band is composed of Rhett Walker (vocals), Kenny Davis (drums) and Joe Kane (guitar). 
The band's debut single "When Mercy Found Me" was a Grammy nominated song.
The band released their debut studio album under the Essential Records label on July 10, 2012 called COME TO THE RIVER.
Rhett Walker is not like any rising Christian musician you have met before or will meet again soon. The outspoken 25-year-old son of a preacher was born and raised around the South, his mellow yet animated voice a sure mix of Georgia and the Carolinas. In that drawl, he tells an intense wild oats story tempered by God’s grace, a testimony that fuels the deep-fried rock and deep- down worship on Rhett Walker Band’s debut, Come To The River....Read more
Their new single is being promoted by Grass Roots Promotions. The Southern rockers who performed at the renowned Grand Ole Opry in July will be releasing the new album, 'Here's To The Ones' in October.

Wild Ponies

“Things That Used To Shine” - “I happen to think the title track is the best” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Americana, Folk, Alt-Country
Members: Doug, Telisha  Williams
Record label: Ditch Dog Records
Current Location: East Nashville

Wild Ponies run the gamut of styles from folk to Americana to alt-country, stepping deftly from easygoing swing to Crazy Horse-ish rattle-and-thump to the plaintive sentimentality of traditional twangin’ country (which has little in common with Nashville’s silky-smooth version of the same)
The band is built around the Virginia-born brother-sister duo of Doug and Telisha Williams, with Jake Winebrenner on drums and a number of backing musicians. Sweet-voiced Telisha also plays bass and keyboards, while Doug sings on a few tracks and contributes guitar. A capable stable of musicians fleshes out their sonic palette, but the defining factor in most of these songs is the voice, either Telisha’s sweet, slightly wistful tones or Doug’s more rugged, straightforward delivery.....Read More Album Review
Dead right, honest songwriting delivered in a hauntingly beautiful yet gritty, neo-traditional Americana wrapper. Doug and Telisha, now residing in the new Bohemian Mecca of East Nashville, write songs about a place where old time religion, superstition, run down bars, gravel parking lots and boarded up factories all mingle together.
Their release, “GHOST OF THE KNOXVILLE GIRL”, received wide critical acclaim, and spent 15 weeks in the Americana
Music Association Top 40 Radio Chart, landing a spot as one of the top 100 Americana Albums of 2010.
Written during a busy year on the road, THINGS THAT USED TO SHINE is an album about leaving somethings behind…and meeting others head-on. It’s also the studio debut of Wild Ponies. Released by the band’s newly formed independent label, DitchDog Records, Things That Used To Shine finds Telisha opening up about the skeletons that have haunted her closet for years. Grammy-winning producer Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, LucindaWilliams) recorded the album’s 12 songs in three days.

Watch them perform the title cut "Things That Used to Shine" live.

She was named as one of 10 Country Artists to Watch in 2014 by Billboard 615 Picks (by Chuck Dauphin) who wrote:
Typically, teenage acts don't necessarily blow us away, but this native Texan is a little different. Her debut single is called "Into The Circle," and is a tribute to the world famous Grand Ole Opry, and she shows plenty of promise on the track. She's contemporary – but has one ear planted towards the heritage of the format!

Kaylee is currently attending college in Nashville studying music business.
