About the Artists
With powerhouse pipes that take you on a whiskey-soaked jaunt to your favorite honky-tonk in the absolute best way possible, KC’s music is as infectious and dynamic as she is. Think Miranda Lambert meets Sheryl Crow with a touch of Brandi Carlisle, and you’ve got an artist with a voice all her own, tied tight around songs that make you feel like you’ve known her forever.
With deep roots in the Blues capital of the world, KC grew up in Memphis, where she was baptized in soul and fell hard for the stage, the spotlight, and songs that make the world go ’round.
Having discovered her stage legs young, KC jumped feet first into this business called music, performing everywhere from Dollywood, where she was featured in Dolly Parton’s “Christmas Coat of Many Colors,” to cruise ships around the world. After performing in ports throughout the Atlantic, the Caribbean, and everywhere in between, she made her way up the mainstream music ladder, opening for artists like Luke Bryan, Chris Young, Randy Houser, and Trailer Choir.
2021 is the continuation of her page-turner of a story, with the release of three new singles, co-written and produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer and songwriter Billy Smiley (WhiteHeart, Johnny Cash, and Petra).
With the music sensibility of Otis Redding, the raw stylings of Chris Stapleton, and the rock vibe of Led Zeppelin, each song is an audible shot of your libation of choice—they take your breath away, feel good going down, and leave you wanting more.
Recorded at the legendary Sound Kitchen in Franklin, Tennessee, the creative process was as revelatory it was fun. The end result is an artist who knows who she is, what she wants to say, and the best way to say it.
“No More Chances,” “Whiskey Break,” and “Thunder” are currently available on Spotify, while her touring schedule can be found at KCJohns.rocks.
“BORN TO A MAN IN A BAND ON THE BAYOU”
Alex Smith truly has music coursing through his veins. Surrounded by music from an early age, Alex grew up with a grandfather and father who both sang and played guitar. It wasn’t until the eighth grade that Smith caught the bug to play an instrument of his own. Picking up a guitar and learning songs on YouTube quickly led to playing at church and local bars.
In 2016, Smith made the big move to Nashville to pursue his songwriting dream. A few years later, Smith’s undeniable talent caught the attention of Edgehill Music Publishing where he signed his first publishing deal in 2019. Shortly after, he began a large-scale project with world renowned producer, Kent Wells. “I look forward to the release of my new songs,” Smith said, “featuring some of the greatest names in music: Sonny Landreth, Leslie Satcher, and of course, my dad, H.B. Smith.”
Smith has an incredible knack for writing which is something he is deeply proud of. Just like his idol, Dolly Parton, Smith vows to remain a “writer and story-teller first,” and use his music to give back to the people and places that built him.
Whiskey Cash and Roses
Whiskey, Cash and Roses is a band out of Nashville Tennessee. After Singer/songwriter Holland Marie and guitar slinger/Singer/songwriter Rob Muzick started playing together, they quickly realized they had something special. After releasing solo albums (Holland Marie-Dr. Radio & Rob Muzick-for the heartache available on iTunes & Spotify) and gigging in Nashville for a few years, they finally came to their senses and formed the high energy, vocally driven power house duo Whiskey, Cash and Roses. SInce, they’ve been quickly making a name for themselves in music city. From playing for the Nashville Predators to ringing in the new year with Fox News they’ve quickly fallen into rocking the stage at Ole Red and winning the crowd over with anything from 90’s country to todays top 40! After nearly 10 years of playing side by side, Holland and Robbie have finally decided to write and release new music! Be on the lookout for Whiskey, Cash and Roses on Spotify, iTunes and googleplay in early 2022! Be sure to give them a follow @whiskeycashroses on IG and make plans to make them a part of your Nashville Saturday night!
Hudson Valley is a female-fronted band rooted in country vocals with a rock-infused sound, delivered with a healthy dash of sass, like only lead singer Sarah Owens can. After landing in Nashville in 2018 from her home state of New York, Owens hit the ground running with a group of musical kindred spirits. With Richie Owens on drums, Andrew Kosek on bass, & Matthew Farinelli on guitar, the foursome combined their influences in the rock & country music genres to create a sound that is authentically & uniquely Hudson Valley.
In May of 2019, Hudson Valley’s EP “Seven” debuted at #17 on the iTunes Country Album Chart. The debut single “Can’t Have Nothin’ Nice” garnered the band their first taste of Country Radio after being picked up by Radio Disney Country. Their single “(Unmistakable Signs of a) Bad Boyfriend” grew in popularity all the way up to #41 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart in 2020.
In early 2021 Hudson Valley’s “Right Place Now” made its country radio debut surpassing their previous radio release and sitting at #39 on the chart already. “After their EP ‘Seven’ I wasn’t sure how they could improve on that effort but “Right Place Now” did just that! Sarah Owens’ vocal talent is undeniable.”[Undiscovered Nashville] You can catch Hudson Valley playing Ole Red almost every week. Be sure to follow @OfficialHudsonValley on all social media platforms because this group is creating quite a buzz up & down Music Row.
