Eric Dodd Band | 9:30 PM
Eric Dodd grew up in Lake Oconee, Ga. chasing two things: golf balls and guitar.

He had a passion and natural gift for both. He earned a golf scholarship to Georgia College and State University, where he majored in business. When he wasn’t playing in golf tournaments, he was playing in frat houses with his band. He eventually transferred to the University of Georgia to pursue a music business degree and immerse himself in the fertile Athens music scene (R.E.M, Drive-By Truckers).

But in the end, it was lyrics over links that brought him to Music City.

Dodd first gained national attention as a CMT Discovery Artist, but he honed his craft playing more than 200 dates a year throughout the southeast performing in clubs, SEC colleges, and music halls where his likable personality, feel-good lyrics, musicianship, and energetic stage presence earned him a faithful following in a region with strong musical tastes and a deep pool of talent.

“I always aim for my shows to be engaging,” he explained of the years spent playing gigs and sleeping in a van to make ends meet. “Music is an escape from reality, and I want to give people that and take them on a trip during the hour I get with them.”

He’s opened for Sam Hunt, Old Dominion, Jake Owen, Corey Smith, Cole Swindell, Zac Brown Band, and recently for Sister Hazel, which was especially meaningful. “Opening up for Sister Hazel's sold out show at the Georgia Theatre in Athens (Georgia) has to be one of my favorite moments onstage,” Dodd offered. “I earned my music business degree from UGA so it was one of those full circle moments.”

His musical journey has him weaving seamlessly between rock, country, and Americana with themes that speak to the heart of Friday night, as well as Monday morning. As a songwriter, he can be sweetly nostalgic and equally rambunctious. On “The Reason,” the debut single from his upcoming self-titled EP, Dodd sings with equal parts ache and authenticity. Inspired by the example of his grandparents, Dodd writes about love and relationships with a heightened level of sincerity, respect, and honesty.

“That’s the type of love that lasts and inspires me,” he says with full candor. “There are ups and downs of course, but that is the love that endures and sets the bar for every generation that follows. It’s something I want to live up to in my own marriage.”

He’s a romantic with a wild side. Dodd also sang and co-wrote the theme song for “Wild Outdoors,” the longest running series on The Sportsman’s Channel. Dodd has also leant his talent to the Georgia Music Foundation, which supports cultural enrichment and music education programs in the state.

Since arriving in Nashville, Dodd has assembled an outstanding group of industry veterans and business leaders to help him reach his career goals including management and label services with Jeffrey Gaccione at Gasworks Entertainment and an exclusive physical and digital distribution deal with The Orchard. Dodd is also a songwriter at MV2 Entertainment, which has a roster of No. 1 hit songwriters including Terry McBride, Clay Mills, and another Georgia native, Thomas Archer.

“Whether it's writing songs or playing shows, it's all about getting to the people and keeping in touch with them," said Dodd.

"When I write, I try to envision my live show and how the songs will translate to my fans. Personally, I'm in a really good place right now, and I am sure my new material reflects that. I am so excited to get these tunes out to everyone soon." more >>>
A guy walks into a bar. Like any good musical story, this one begins with a song … and a bar.

Just about a decade ago, singer/songwriter, Josh Brannon, found himself with a night off … time to relax, think about his music and band he wanted to form for his special brand of “Genuine Country.” The South Carolina native and avid outdoorsman walked into a bar where fiddle man, Worth King, (a native of Muscle Shoals, AL) was sitting in with a local band … and Brannon took notice.

That was nearly a decade ago, and the rest is history.

Josh and Worth began performing as a duo, writing songs together, and eventually establishing the Josh Brannon Band in 2010. The group, based in Myrtle Beach, has recorded two albums, produced two music videos, and toured extensively throughout the Southeast. Notable performances include an annual appearance at the Labor Day weekend NASCAR race in Darlington, SC., and the group’s own ‘Home in Carolina Music Festival’ each May in Boiling Springs, SC.

Josh and Worth handle most of the songwriting for the group, which proudly characterizes its music as “Genuine Country,” inspired by ‘90s Country and Texas/Red Dirt artists. The Josh Brannon Band is produced by Billy Lawson, who has written two number one hits – “I Left Something Turned on at Home” (Trace Adkins) and “Learning as You Go” (Rick Trevino). Lawson also has cuts by George Strait, Tim McGraw, and many others.

The guys have had the opportunity to open for many of their own musical heroes, including Chris Young, Sammy Kershaw, Clay Walker, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Cody Jinks, The Steeldrivers, and Casey Donahew Band.
The Josh Brannon Band actively supports a variety of charitable causes. The band performs each July for the annual Saddle Up for St. Jude event in Tuscumbia, AL. The benefit for St. Jude Children’s Hospital is the largest of its kind in the U.S. and has raised $2 million to date. Another favorite charity is Catch the Vision; a non-profit organization that constructs residential structures to house missionaries in foreign countries. Josh Brannon himself recently traveled to St. Croix to help build three bunk houses.

The Josh Brannon Band is Worth King (Fiddle, Backup Vocals); Andrew Beck (Bass Guitar); Tanner Beck (Lead Guitar); James Poindexter (Drums): and Josh Brannon (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar). more >>>
Jordan Rowe | 7:30 PM
Growing up in a small, rural South Georgia community, Jordan acquired a love for the outdoors that included hunting, fishing, and riding countless miles on dirt roads. There's no greater place he'd rather call home than Adel, Georgia.

At the age of three, he stood on a stool in front of his local church congregation and sang "Jesus Loves Me." Little did he know a passion for music was born inside him that day that continues to grow.

At the age of ten, he earned the title of "CES Idol" at Cook Elementary School which was a spin-off of American Idol. The contestants sang weekly, and the votes of the school body was the process of elimination. For his final performance, he sang "God Bless the USA" for a crowd of approximately 1,400 students. He sang at local talent shows, fund-raising events, and anywhere else that needed entertainment.

As his teenage years began to unfold, he started playing guitar and became the drummer for the adult choir at the same church where he made his first debut. Also, he was a soloist for his high school chorus all four years where he sang many genres of music.

During his high school years, Jordan would drive out to a field, sit on the tailgate of his truck with a guitar, and write his songs. They are the real life adventures of a country boy in his country town. more >>>
