SATURDAY, AUGUST 31st
Bucky Covington is that most remarkable of entertainers—a man known and loved as much for his engaging personality as for his formidable talent. The talent has shone through on three hit singles that have helped push his debut album toward gold status; his undeniable likeability and his ability to wear his stardom as comfortably as his jeans has done the rest. Both come together on stage, where the long-haired North Carolinian with the rocker’s charisma and the country boy charm thrills old and new fans alike as he criss-crosses the country.
Rick Monroe is a country music singer/songwriter and road warrior who enjoys bringing his music directly to the people. A Monster Energy Drink sponsored artist who’s now poised to share the expanded sonic palette found deep within the grooves of his most fully realized album to date, Smoke Out the Window, which cracks the lid on its release on September 21, 2018 via Thermal Entertainment.
Think the name describes these five guys with half a million road miles and almost ten years together. They have weathered all types of adversity and setbacks. Some how when they should’ve gave up they keep on putting out music. The longevity and determination says a lot about their character and desire to make music. They have had a #1 on Sirius/XM the Highway with “Moonlight Crush”. They have played some of the best venues and biggest festivals in the U.S. such as “Taste of Country” in New York and CMAfest in Nashville along with many others. They have shared the stage with Jake Owen, Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Neal McCoy, Colt Ford, Corey Smith and Gary Allan just to name a few.
The concept of Country Music Revival is simply honoring the groundwork our forefathers and mothers set for us. Paying homage to those trailblazers who shaped country music.
To describe my sound… I would say it is a lot like the hills I came from. The big drums, rock guitars, and songs about whiskey make me tough and raw on the surface with a deep and soulful core.
We’re a light blues/indie rock band and we’re working on our first studio album, “This Must Be Fate”!!
In 2010, Hartford City, Indiana’s own singer and songwriter packed his bags and headed south to Nashville, Tennessee. After completing his service to our country in the United States Navy from 1999-2003, Derek picked up a guitar and never looked back. Since then he has been filling the bars and honky-tonks throughout the Midwest & Midsouth. With his distinctive signature-vocals and a music style that’s country-rock with an outlaw lifestyle, moving to Nashville has no doubt helped Derek fine-tune his songwriting skills. He’s written songs for a popular cable television series “Tailgate Adventures” on the Sportsman’s Channel and the theme song for “Fishers ATV World” on the Velocity Channel and NBCsports channel.
Derek has had the privilege and opportunity of sharing the stage with a variety of great artists such as; David Allan Coe, Shooter Jennings, Billy Ray Cyrus, Tyler Farr, Alabama, Charlie Daniels, Blackberry Smoke, Ted Nugent and Jamey Johnson, among others. In 2015, Derek was invited to step into “The Circle” and duet with Billy Ray Cyrus at the Grand Ole Opry. Derek has also had the honor of stepping on stage at the 40th anniversary Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam at Bridgestone Arena and performed “Some Gave All” alongside Billy Ray Cyrus. Derek also has been in the studio with Billy Ray Cyrus and Joe Perry (Aerosmith) to re-cut a timeless classic “Tulsa Time” by Don Williams that you can hear on Cyrus’ new album “Thin Line” released in 2016. Derek released his sophomore EP “Pray” in March of 2018 and it topped the Amazon Charts at No.1 and No.7 on the iTunes Charts. Derek is very passionate about his music and his fans and when you get the opportunity to experience his live performance, you’ll no doubt feel that passion as well.
3 and TWENTY
3 and Twenty’s music transcends the limited boundaries of traditional and contemporary genres. It is Country Music at its highest evolutionary level that cross reverberates with a unique blend of Pop, R&B, Southern Rock, and Hip Hop. Combine their undying passion for song writing with a high energy, must see live show, and you have something that can’t be explained… it must be experienced.
Founded by longtime bandmates and business partners, Adrian Lee and Butch Gibson, in January 2010 in a small home studio on a backwoods country road (Three and Twenty Road) in Easley, South Carolina. Lee and Gibson were hell-bent on writing real, heartfelt, music that embodies their life experiences while striving to create a sound that is new and fresh, yet familiar, but also different enough that you really can’t compare them to anybody, but try to compare them to everybody.
The real-life storylines and true musicianship are penetratingly relevant to all who hunger and thirst for honesty and realism in what 3 and Twenty believes matters most… the MUSIC. Beyond what is known as a “rags to riches” journey, 3 and Twenty’s pursuit of perfection in their music presents the listener with an insightful maturity combined with the simplicity of raw emotion, confidently delivered by two small town seasoned music veterans that have spent over two decades perfecting their craft.
Through years of persistent grass roots campaigns and as direct support for national headliners 3 and Twenty has become a regional and national touring powerhouse with a professional and hard working reputation that garners the utmost respect from their fans, peers, agents, and venue owners. From national tours to writing with some of the best songwriters in Nashville over the past three years, 3 and Twenty is poised to make some serious noise in an industry that is craving authenticity and originality.
3 and Twenty is currently recording with accomplished producer/owner, Sean Giovanni, of The Record Shop Nashville for their next album with the new single and video for “Wasted On You” slated for a March 2019 release and a tour to promote the new album in 2019.
