About the Artists
Aaron Tracy can be described as an All-American East Tennessean living his life behind a six-string and a microphone. Aaron started his music career at just 8 years old in his hometown of Louisville, TN.
He placed in the Top 16 Finalists of CMT’s 2009 Music City Madness Competition as a freshman at Alcoa High School.
We was also afforded the opportunity to perform at CMA Music Fest in 2013. His song “Chillbilly” was supported by a radio tour during the Spring and Summer of 2016 through Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. It reached #25 in the USA and #11 in the UK for Most Downloaded New Country Song on Country Radio. “Timeless” soon followed with even more success charting in both the USA (#20) and the UK (#8) for the Most Downloaded Song on Country Radio.
As “Timeless” garnered airplay throughout the Country Scene, opportunities for greater scale live shows began appearing for Aaron. Between 2015-2017 Aaron shared the bill with the likes of Trace Adkins, Sara Evans, John Michael Montgomery, Frankie Ballard, & William Michael Morgan.
Shortly following the success of his two latest singles, Aaron started working on his next project featuring Travis Wyrick in the producer role. This project introduced two new songs, “Dreamboat” and “Goin’ Down South”. These songs in context with the “Timeless EP” revealed a new sound that had not been previously heard from Aaron.
The Timeless EP was released in late 2016 and propelled Aaron forward into recording his next single “Stay Home Tonight.” This single did not receive airplay but was featured as Aaron’s first music video.
In 2020, at the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Aaron released a never-before-heard song called “We Sing About Love.” The song was written back in 2016 but for years it sat in the catalog of Aaron’s unreleased music. With the political and emotional climate of 2020, Aaron felt it was the most appropriate time to release the song.
Aaron is currently working on his first full length solo album.
Elijah Wise from Cosby, Tennessee has a very traditional country sound with an outlaw flare about him. Elijah gives credit to his greatest influences Keith Whitley, Tracy Lawrence, Travis Tritt, and George Jones, as they shaped the way he sounds today. In the early years of life, Elijah grew up singing with his father. It wasn’t until Elijah was right around 20 years old when he picked up the guitar and quickly fell in love with it. Elijah took guitar lessons from bluegrass legend Wyatt Rice at East Tennessee State University to add a whole new dynamic to his sound. After being put into a financial bind and leaving the university, he decided to start his journey as a professional musician. After just a few months Elijah began playing anywhere from 5-7 nights a week as a full time musician in some of the biggest venues in East Tennessee. He now lives in Nashville, and is chasing the dream of becoming a country star. Elijah released his first single back in September of 2020 called “She’s Movin’ On”. The song was written by Wyatt McCubbin and Carson Chamberlain and has had several radio plays in the local area. Elijah has some big things planned for the rest of the year. A couple things include on August 21st 2021 at the Cocke County fairgrounds in Newport, Tennessee, Elijah will be opening up for “The” Larry Sparks and will be back in the studio in November with Kenny Royster at Direct Image Studios in Nashville to finish up his EP. One of Elijah’s favorite venues to play at is Ole Red because there is always a great crowd and an incredibly helpful and dedicated staff to make the experience top notch for the artists and the audience. Elijah says, ” I just knew I wanted to play Ole Red because the crowd that it draws in is insane and I wanted to be a part of that kind of exposure and such a great team.” Fans can purchase Elijah’s music anywhere music is sold and can find his handles for social media at the links below.
