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.
Originally from Oklahoma. Zach Ray got his start singing on the stage at his home church in Blanchard. Raised on Country music and Jesus, you’ll find his songs focus on the important things in his life, God, family, and life in general.
Zach started piano lessons at the age of 9, and from then on, there was no stopping. He took guitar lessons under the instruction of Joe Settlemires. From what he learned there, he was able to pick up the banjo, mandolin, and fiddle. In high school he started singing and performing at the Rodeo Opry in Oklahoma City, OK.
After high school, he was recruited to play football at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, OK and was also on scholarship singing for the University Chorale. He was also in 3 different bands during that time.
Currently, he is living in Nashville with his wife, Brittney. He released his first EP at the end of 2019, and just released a brand new single “Two Trees” in January of 2022. He plans on releasing one single a month until May, so stay tuned and be sure to follow along on his social media pages and his website!
For most artists trying to break in the entertainment industry, authenticity is the ultimate goal. While many artists search for a certain image or brand, rarely an artist will come along who seemingly doesn’t have to try to create this, he just is. Nick Hickman is such an artist. A modern country act hailing from Knoxville, TN, this now-Nashville-based singer-songwriter doesn’t try to mimic anything out there, and instead delivers a high-energy, genuine performance tempering a passionate show with heartfelt and genuine lyrics that are insanely catchy and singable. “What you see is what you get,” Hickman says. “I do not edit myself, I do not censor myself. I am just me.” It is exactly this unapologetic and real personality that draws so many to nick’s music.
Perhaps most refreshing, aside from Hickman’s talent and ability, is his work ethic. Anyone who knows nick personally knows the extent of his drive and his unwillingness to settle for anything less than top of the game.
“I want to sell out arenas, I want twenty #1s, I want to play 200 dates a year, I want to be a member of the grand ole opry, I want an ACM award and a Grammy. I will not stop or sleep until I have all of them. I do not care what it takes, what sacrifices have to be made, or how long.”
