Ben Massey- Rhythm Guitar and Lead Vocals I was raised on a farm out in the country close to Dora NM, about 5 miles from the state line. I started playing guitar and writing songs when I was 15. It's been my passion ever since and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for the Bentley Massey Band. I also like to fish, hunt and play baseball. Even though I enjoy basketball, I knew I wasn't destined for the NBA. The first game I ever played was in 7th grade. I was so excited about going in! I scored within the first 30 seconds that I was in the game . . . Ahem, on the wrong end of the court. . .so the 2 points went to the other team. After that I was never really able to get the coach to put me back in.

If you were to think of the most glorious sound that could ever be produced-As if Heaven itself were to part the clouds for the briefest of moments and all the Angels gathered to sing their most Angelic song. and it was so beautiful that it could only be heard for a single whisper of a moment or the gloriousness of the sound would overwhelm everyone on Earth-yep. that's the Brandon McDermott Band in a nutshell. From Galveston to Houston to College Station and all the way up to Amarillo. the Brandon McDermott Band has been bringing their exciting brand of Texas country music to stages across the Lone Star State.

Andie Kay Joyner and Heather Stalling had to experience life before they felt ready to write about it. When they met in the early 1990's, both were already accomplished musician/vocalists. Stalling was an award winning fiddler, coming off a two-year run as a support player in Branson, MO. Joyner was still a teenager, but had sung in front of thousands of people at countless performances. Each had grown up in musical families that exposed them to bluegrass, folk, and traditional country music.
With a raw. rough. and edgy sound Bleu Edmondson is a mainstay on the Texas country music scene. Coming from Richardson.

"When I told my folks that I was quitting school and starting a band. my family was very supportive and still is. I am thankful of that. My family is very important to me. When I am in the Dallas area I make it a point to go home and see them." Music isn't the only thing that Bleu loves; the Texas Rangers are his second love. "My fondest Texas Rangers moment is the Nolan Ryan/Robin Ventura fight. That was awesome. I am a huge Nolan fan as well. It is hard to follow the team living in New Braunfalls. TX but I keep up with them the best I can."
Red Dirt Music gets it's name from the blood red soil and surrounding landscape of Stillwater. Oklahoma. the place many hail as the "Mecca" Of Red Dirt Music. While locating the music's epicenter is easy. defining it's sound is a little more difficult. "I've always thought Red Dirt was less about a sound. and more about a brotherhood of musicians with a common goal; not only to make music. but music with a message. Bob Childers. Jimmy LaFave. Tom Skinner. The Great Divide and so many others have helped to shape and form this rapidly growing genre. bringing in the convictions of Woody Guthrie. and the swank and swagger of the Outlaw Country and Southern Rock movements". Jenkins new album "Brothers Of The Dirt" definitely carries on it that tradition with a wide variety of style and influence. bringing in Artists at the forefront of the new charge -Stoney LaRue. Jason Boland. Cody Canada. Mike McClure. and mixing them in with some of the other guys that helped to influence the Genre -Steve Pryor. Ron Morgan. Pat Savage. Brad Absher just to name just a few.
Brandon Rhyder Home Brandon Rhyder Brandon Rhyder Pat Green on Brandon Rhyder.. "Hard To tell between Brandon Rhyder and Wade Bowen as to who is the best coming up with a melody. This is my opinion. but Brandon is one of the best in the business." Justin Frazell. txrdr.com and mornings on KFWR 95.9 the Ranch says. "Brandon Rhyder. beyond his endless skills as a songwriter. singer. and entertainer. is just flat out good people! Brandon has always been more than willing to reach out and help when I have asked. Whether it be for the late Sunday evening radio show or Pickin' for Preemies. he so kindly donates his time and has never said no in the years I have known him. Brandon and I are more than business associates. we are friends. I am blessed to call him my friend and this world is extremely fortunate to have his music" "Brandon Rhyder is an exceptional musician and a is genuinely friendly person. I first got to know Brandon a couple of years ago when I lived in Corpus Christi. Texas. I had an interview set up with Wade Bowen and he decided to bring a songwriting buddy and it was Brandon. We hit it off immediately. and our friendship has grown over the years. I did the interview with the two of them. and Brandon played a song acoustic for me that would eventually make him a huge name on the Texas music scene. Freeze Frame Time. There are a lot of people on this scene that have distinctive voices. but none with the natural vibrato that he has. a voice just makes you stop and listen."
Brett Crenshaw grew up hearing stories about his grandfather playing fiddle with Bob Wills back in the days when Texas Music. and the foundation of modern-day Country Music was in its infancy.

Brett and the guys are pounding the pavement with full force to promote their debut record "Another Late Night".
On any given Saturday night. Texas singer-songwriter Bruce Robison is on his way to headline at one of the Texas Hill Country's legendary dancehalls-the Broken Spoke. say. or Gruene Hall or Floore's Country Store-when one of his songs comes on the radio. Maybe it's Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's hit version of "Angry All the Time." or George Strait's cover of "Wrapped" or even the Dixie Chicks' No. 1 hit. "Travelin' Soldier." For Bruce Robison. life looks pretty good. As a songwriter. Robison. very deliberately. sets his scene. poses his characters and sets the machinery in motion. Then. he stands back and gives them room to breathe. It's an approach that is a luxury in this day of blunt-object sentimentality and sledgehammer nuance that passes for most commercial country music.
"It's a theme that keeps popping up naturally," Brian Keane explains referring to his new album titled Coming Home. "It's an emotion I've felt each week as I really learned what the road is like the last year and a half." It's a theme that finds its way into almost every song on his new album, set to release in January 2014. For an artist and songwriter who falls into both the Americana and Red Dirt genres, Keane has been extremely busy touring 150 days a year and promoting his most recent single off the upcoming record, "Easy to Say Goodbye", which was recently featured on Lifetime's Army Wives. This constant state of travel allows him to continuously experience the emotions of coming home to Nashville, and to his wife and new baby girl.
