FEW MILES SOUTH

Few Miles South is a country and southern rock group created by South GA raised, Blake English, and Los Angeles native, Tori Lund. The two met in 2014 while playing in an L.A. church. Tori, a classically trained singer and piano teacher, and Blake, a multi-instrumentalist and producer, connected over a shared love of country music. They began to write and record songs with intentions to shop them to other artists, but a couple years bonding with their catalog compelled them to wrangle up some local musicians and form a band. Eager to pursue music and ditch the city, Tori and Blake quit their jobs and headed to the deep woods of Georgia.

FMS offers a refreshing take on the traditional genre while “stick[ing] with tried and true country backroads” (Skope Magazine). They strive to share honest stories and influences can be heard ranging from Hank Williams to The Band. Their first single and music video, “On Down the Road,” charted overseas and won “Best International Music Video” in 2017 by HOTDISC Country Music Awards. In February 2018, they released a 5 track EP, Might Could, which features renowned pedal steel guitarist Bob “Boo” Bernstein (Tanya Tucker, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakum). FMS does all their writing, recording and production in house, literally, and is currently finishing a full-length album slated for the end of the year. They can be found logging miles in a van en route to a show or camping out with their dogs.  Check them out here: Few Miles South Website or here: Few Miles South Facebook Page.

 

THE KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS

The Kentucky Headhunters, declared “the great American rock ‘n’ roll band” by Billboard magazine, began their professional journey in 1968 when brothers Fred and Richard Young and cousins Greg Martin and Anthony Kenney formed the Southern blues-rock band Itchy Brother. The band morphed into The Kentucky Headhunters in 1986. Their first album, 1989’s Pickin’ On Nashville, was released by Mercury Records and surprised the world, becoming a bona fide hit, selling over two million copies. The album won a Grammy Award, three Country Music Awards, an American Music Award and an Academy Of Country Music Award. It spawned four consecutive Top 40 Country hits. Currently, the band is made up of Richard Young, Fred Young, Greg Martin and Doug Phelps.  See more about the Headhunters here: The Kentucky Headhunters Website or here: The Kentucky Headhunters Facebook Page

JIMMIE ALLEN

For breakthrough country artist Jimmie Allen, a simple phrase sums up his view on life and music: Never give up.

A native of Southern Delaware – the region he describes as the “slower, lower” part of the state, and locale of Mercury Lane (the namesake of his debut album) – Allen has carried that mantra with him through good times and bad, whether that meant living in his car or rocking amphitheaters on Toby Keith’s Interstates & Tailgates Tour. “I didn’t quit, I never will,” he says. “Stuff ain’t easy, and you shouldn’t quit either. There’s a big difference between busting your ass and sitting on it.” For Allen, musical dreams and a love of true-to-themselves artists like Alan Jackson, Aaron Tippin, Montgomery Gentry, and Jason Aldean brought him all the way to Nashville – and eventually around the world for an Armed Forces Entertainment tour of Japan.

But it was actually a nightmare which turned this promising singer into the artist he is today. After a series of bad breaks, Allen was forced to live in his car, too proud to ask for a bailout. For months he worked multiple jobs and finally saved enough for an apartment but hit then another snag – Country music wasn’t ready for him. “People were just trying to help,” he says now. “But they wanted me to change my sound and told me I had to lose my boots. The turning point came when I stopped listening, and finally, let my music be a natural reflection of who I am.”

Since then Allen has been following his own compass, and it has lead him somewhere special. Now signed to BBR Music Group/BMG, his diligence is paying off. Kicking off 2018 being recognized on nearly every “Ones to Watch” list, this year has proved to be a turning point in the singer’s career as he raced through milestones that most only dream of—earning a standing ovation while making his Grand Ole Opry debut, cracking the Top 20 with his first-ever single and checking off many major bucket list items in between.  He will be joining on several upcoming tours, including Chase Rice’s Lambs & Lions U.K. Tour, Scotty McCreery’s Seasons Change Tour and Kane Brown’s Live Forever Tour.  Jimmie’s hit “Best Shot” was a #1 hit the end of 2018 and in 2019, he has been nominated for the ACM’s New Male Vocalist of the Year.  See more about Jimmie Allen here: Jimmie Allen’s Website or here: Jimmie Allen’s Facebook Page.
