For those familiar with the impressive crop of young talent hailing from the great state of Georgia, Travis Denning is a familiar name. Frequently playing lead guitar with BBR Recording artist, Jordan Rager, Denning’s ability to write damn good songs and melt faces on the guitar make him the most versatile young artist in Nashville. For those who are less well-versed in the up-and-comers of country music, I introduce to you, Travis Denning, the diamond in the new country rough.
For some people the rise to the top is fast and easy. For others it’s a tedious process that involves many late nights in bars playing for nothing but free beer and peanuts. However, as you’re playing for free you begin to appreciate your place, appreciate the process. So that when the day comes that you’re given an opportunity you seize it. For Canadian Tim Hicks’ he certainly made the most of his chance. At 35 Hicks’ is finally garnering the national prominence he so greatly deserves. He recently won the CCMA Award (US equivalent of the CMA Awards) for Rising Star. You can request his single “Here Comes the Thunder” now on SiriusXM or your local radio stations.
