Kansas native Erik Dylan didn’t travel to Nashville with pocket aces, rather he had to work to make his dream of being a songwriter and artist a reality. However, it’s his years of hard work that make his songs jump off the page and come to life. His songs are ones that you’ll be able to connect with on a deeper level than just tipping back a cold beer. Dylan knows what the listener wants to hear because he’s been in their shoes. He’s a fan of the genre as much as you and I and that right there makes him one of the most talented young songwriters in Nashville. In part one of our interview with him we discuss what goes into writing a song, working with Kip Moore on what could be Moore’s next radio single, and more:
If you think you don’t know who Kristian Bush is you’re likely mistaken. He’s a guy from Sugarland, not a guy rather the guy. As the group takes a hiatus Bush has decided to pursue a solo project. His debut single is catchy, fun loving, and spreads a message that’s perfect for the holiday season. “Trailer Hitch” is the type of song that makes you want to get up and dance, and then go out and do something good for the world. It’s the perfect single to introduce Bush, the solo artist, to the national scene. We caught up with Kristian this week to chat about “Trailer Hitch,” his upcoming album Southern Gravity, and his charity work with Goodwill.
If you listen to SiriusXM The Highway then chances are your familiar with Outshyne. The “Moonlight Crush” and “Night With Your Name on It” singers are gearing up for bigger and better things in 2015. They’ll be out on the road for much of the year hitting places they’ve never been, including the Northeast. We chatted with lead singer Waylon Owings this week about new music, 2015 plans, and quitting their day jobs to pursue music full time.
Dee Jay Silver is the only DJ with a Nashville recording contract. That being said he’s regarded as the top live DJs not only in country music but in music in general. His ability to connect with the audience and give them exactly what they want to hear is what separates him from the rest. As he’s fine tuned his skills he’s expanded his outputs. This past year, while on tour with Brad Paisley, Silver was brought up on back to do a back and forth as a main part of Brad’s set. Additionally he launched a syndicated radio show and podcast called Country Club. The weekly program features Silver mixing some of the hottest songs in country music just the way you want to hear them.
We caught up with Silver and chatted about how he got his start, one crazy night at Fenway Park with Jason Aldean, and much more!
