Mark Chesnutt

Mark Chesnutt is one of Country's true musical treasures. Critics have hailed him as a classic country singer of the first order, and some of Country music's most elite entertainers from George Jones to George Strait echo this sentiment. Mark Chesnutt's stature is easily gauged; he has 14 No. 1 hits, 23 top ten singles, four platinum albums and five gold records. Country music critics and fans alike need to look no further when it comes to country music basics. If you ask Mark Chesnutt, he'll tell you "It's the music that has kept me around this long." In a world that sometimes confuses style with substance, Mark Chesnutt possesses both. Remaining true to himself as a traditional country artist, while still keeping up with the ever-changing country landscape, Mark has a knack for picking great songs; delivering them with his world-class vocals; and with real heart-felt emotion.

Two Tons of Steel

Before there was Americana, before there was Texas Country, Two Tons of Steel's frontman Kevin Geil rocked a sound that blended the best of musical worlds and pushed the envelope of "Texas" sound with a signature brand of country meets punk. Two Tons of Steel began traveling outside of Texas, including stops at the Grand Ole' Opry in Nashville, the National Theater in Havana, Cuba, and European tours, to greet fans who had embraced their Texas-born sound. 2018 will mark the bands 23rd year of "Two Ton Tuesday Live from Gruene Hall." The summerlong event has drawn over 230,000 fans since it began its annual run in 1995. Two Tons of Steel's reach extends beyond their live gigs. In 2003, the band was filmed during a "Two Ton Tuesday" gig for the IMAX film, "Texas: The Big Picture," which can be seen daily at the IMAX Theatre in the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin and has been seen as far away as Japan.

Sarah Peacock

Sarah Peacock bridges gaps between Country, Blues, Americana, and Rock-N-Roll. Her music is raw, truth-telling, and fiercely unique. Held hostage by a record label at 21, Peacock made her home in a ‘92 Volvo with her dog and a guitar, and for nearly seven years earned a living in the corner shadows of American dive bars. The tables turned in 2011 when an anonymous fan helped her buy out her recording contract. Since then she has released six albums, winning multiple awards for her songs "Hurricane", "Beautiful", "The Cool Kids," and "Are We There Yet". Peacock was also named Listening Room Network's Artist of the Year. But the dark side takes another swing in 2015. Peacock was ghosted by her entire team and producer without explanation. Spirits crushed, she hit the road. That was the catalyst that launched her next album, "Dream On," and landed Sarah her first tour bus. Less than 4 months later, she was watching it burn to the ground at a California truck stop. Sarah's fans quickly came to the rescue with a fundraiser. That special connection between Sarah and her fans is what put her in Hank Williams Jr.'s former tour bus, one year after the devastating loss. In 2017, she signed with In Tune Entertainment and American Roots Records. Her upcoming EP, "Hot Sheet Motel," is a collection of 5 songs that reveal the secrets of one woman's journey through the shadows.

John Arthur Martinez

From the Sixth Street clubs in his birthplace of Austin, Texas to the Alpine festivals in Switzerland, from music venues in Paris, France to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, John Arthur Martinez has proven his music grades on stages all over. He acknowledges that he's among the fortunate few that can make a living doing what they love, "I write, record, and perform songs. And, in doing so, I bare my soul, meet new souls, and see the world." He's celebrating the release of San Antonio Woman, his 13th album of original music--yes, 13th.

Pauline Reese

If Pauline Reese had been born in the 1800's, she would have used a plow and a Henry rifle to carve her place the Wild West. Instead, she's slinging a guitar and sharp-edged lyrics to blaze a trail in a man's world of outlaw country music and staking milestones along the way, including praise from Willie Nelson as his favorite female vocalist and from the Texas Music Awards as the reigning entertainer of the year - the first woman to earn that honor.

Mike Blakely

As a performing songwriter, Mike has released 12 CDs, performed all over the U.S., and made 16 tours to Europe. His songs have been recorded by Alan Jackson, Gary P. Nunn, Red Steagall, Flaco Jimenez and Raul Malo, john Arthur martinez, Randy Brown, Geronimo Trevino III and Johnny Rodriguez, Johnny Bush, Pauline Reese, Debbi Walton and others. One of his co-written tunes landed on a Grammy Award-winning album by Flaco Jimenez in 1995. Another was played on the orbiting International Space Station in 2007.

Kale Stephens

Originally from Midlothian Texas and now residing in Marble Falls, Kale Stephens is a dynamic singer/songwriter. During the week you can find him on patios playing acoustic shows often accompanied by friends. He seeks to glorify God through Country Music. As Kale likes to say, "I Love Jesus and Country Music, and that's all there is to it".
