Nicholas Jamerson / Grayson Jenkins / Wesley Smith

Americana/Roots
Renowned songwriters Nicholas Jamerson, Grayson Jenkins and Wesley Smith 'in the round' sharing songs, stories, and harmonies; making for unforgettable night of music and fellowship. Nicholas Jamerson A singer’s combination of good looks, an eastern Kentucky accent and cowboy boots can easily draw a crowd of fans. The real charm lies in the perspective and lyrics voiced in the songs of Nick Jamerson. Grayson Jenkins A native of the rolling hills and coal mining communities of rural western Kentucky, Grayson Jenkins is a singer-songwriter who now calls Lexington, KY his home. Grayson’s music reflects his influences from all genres, whether it's country, blues, rock, or bluegrass. His lyrics are inspired by the words of Mark Twain, who always said, “Write what you know.” In keeping with this motto, Grayson’s songs pay homage to the things most important to him—family, friends, and a life without regrets. "Cityscapes & Countrysides", Grayson's second full-length LP, is the culmination of two years of transition and growth for a young man trying to figure things out. Grayson's original songs capture the heartbreak of losing loved ones, the trials and triumphs of each day, and aspirations of a better life. Raised in Muhlenberg County, KY, Grayson developed an appreciation for all things genuine and real. Grayson and his band, the Resolutions, cut the majority of "Cityscapes & Countrysides" live in order to deliver the songs in their most natural form. Wesley Smith Wesley has been writing songs. They're about his life experiences or people he has met. His influences include James Taylor, Jim Croce, Eagles, Steve Miller, Jonathan Edwards, John Cleese.

Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks

Rock
Band show and CD Release Party! Webb Wilder Returns to Columbia Before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Nashville, there was Webb Wilder. Rock 'n' roll, from Nashville. Formed from Mississippi mud, tinged with British mod. Bruised by the blues. Baptized by Buck and Chuck. Psychiatric psycho-rootsy. Sizzling, glistening, uneasy listening. As it has been for three decades, it is now and ever shall be. Webb Wilder.

Wayne Hancock

Country, Rock, Swing, Americana/Roots, Blues
Wayne "The Train" Hancock has found success with his mix of Texas country, rock and rockabilly, which looks to the past while still sounding new. He is often compared to Hank Williams III. Writing songs since the age of 12 helped him win a talent contest at age 18 called 'Wrangler County Showdown.' He then was immediately shipped to new recruit training for the US Marine Corps where he served four years. "The Train" was chugging along with his musical career when he recorded his 2003 album, 'Swing Time,' live during a two-night stand at the Continental Club in Austin.
