Kolby Cooper

Kolby Cooper lost his childhood and found his voice.
Cooper was 14 when cancer took his dad, and he channeled that painful loss into songwriting. He was 18 with the responsibility of a wife and baby on his shoulders when he used his high school graduation money to record an EP. And now, barely old enough to buy a round for the band, Cooper is pouring his signature blend of scorching break-up anthems and gut-wrenchingly relatable songs into a new record for BBR Music Group.
Drawn to his unrestrained, fresh sound, Cooper is earning early praise for his rough-hewn velvet vocals, layered over wailing electric guitar, and a buoyant Texas bottom-end. His new record is Country with clear influences from his Lonestar State roots. The result “is authentic to me,” said the humble outlier. “I’m older and understanding more about myself, and the music, and what I want to say. This is exactly what I set out to sound like.”


Kevin Fowler

Kevin Fowler has a found way to live the dream-by earning it. It’s never been an easy or short road, but it’s a path he wouldn’t trade and has positioned him as one of the most consistent artists, in any genre, of the last two decades. His musical journey began playing in rock bands before finding his footing as a solo act in the early 2000s in his home state of Texas, where he burst onto the scene with the celebrated album Beer Bait and Ammo-a mainstay for fans to this day. And while his songs have been covered by Country Music mainstays such as George Jones, Mark Chesnutt, Montgomery Gentry, Sammy Kershaw and others –Kevin’s versions of these songs are feelgood classics that rival the most well-known and memorable songs of any of his contemporaries. Fowler released seven additional albums over the following 14 years after Beer Bait and Ammo, including his most recent effort 2016’s Coming To A Honkytonk Near You produced by Trent Wilmon. His latest release is a nod to what he does best –entertain. The album is filled with songs that invoke the quintessential sound that Fowler has spent his career fine-tuning and reinforcing. This record is very well rounded with plenty of good ol’ Fowler fun songs and a few more heartfelt, serious ones. I love this record and I’m sure our fans will too. “


Jack Ingram

Ridin’ High...again is as rollicking as it is a reverent Tp-of-the hat to Jerry Jeff Walker and Walker’s classic album, Ridin’ High. The album is the first since his acclaimed, Americana-Tnged Midnight Motel and this one sounds like the forty-eight-hour party it came from; Jack and co (including Texas legend Charlie Sexton on guitar) recorded it over two days at famed Arlyn Studios in Austin, TX.
Like any great show, the thirteen tracks on the album mix up the new with the known. Half the songs on Ridin’ High...again cover Texas greats like Guy Clark’s “Desperados Wai0ng For A Train,” Kris Kristofferson’s “Jesus Was a Capricorn,” and Willie Nelson’s “Gotta Get Drunk,” as well as songs by Hayes Carll, Rusty Weir, and Keith Ga^s. The other half are Ingram’s own, including co-writes with his long-Tme collaborator, fellow Texan and award-winning songwriter/musician Jon Randall Stewart, Todd Snider, and Miranda Lambert, including the 2018 Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year, “Tin Man,” which Jack wrote with Lambert and Stewart.
As a veteran of the Texas music scene, Jack is known as an exhilarating live performer. He’s released six live albums and Ridin’ High...again will be his 10th studio album. Jack has been honored by the Academy of Country Music with Awards for both Top New Male Artist and Song of the Year and he’ll be riding high...again on tour throughout 2019.

Cory Morrow

Cory Morrow didn’t become a Texas legend by being quiet. He sings about strippers and Jesus with equal fervor. While this dichotomy may leave those on either side of the moral equator perplexed - the answer is actually very simple. Cory Morrow is beautifully and uncomfortably transparent. From the beer soaked, cocaine laden days of his early career, to today’s more sober and spiritual leg of the journey, one thing about Morrow has never changed – as goes Cory’s life, goes Cory’s songs - and that’s never been more evident than on his newest studio release “Whiskey & Pride”.

The record, dropped in, September 2018, is an aggressive blend of early Morrow sound with a current day perspective. Vintage feel from an evolving heart and mind. The title track, “Whiskey & Pride” features the age-old struggle of love versus ego and cleverly straddles the line of sermon and self-deprecation. The twist comes in the form of a mirror behind a bar that reveals the true identity of the accuser. The track, which is also the first single release, features the Texas Country-style instrumentation prevalent in Morrow’s early days, including steel guitar phenom and producer of “Whiskey & Pride”, Lloyd Maines.


Mike Ryan

Mike Ryan is a San Antonio, TX born singer/songwriter who has accumulated fans across the US and throughout the world with powerful, whiskey smooth vocals and well-crafted lyrics. His thoughtful writing style evokes emotion and plants the audience inside his songs. Mike’s brand of country music, infused with southern rock and soulful rhythms, has generated over 105 million streams to date. Skillful with a writer’s pen, and pure entertainment with a guitar, Mike has secured a notable reputation among country music fans.
He has seen exceptional success on the Texas radio charts with five #1 songs to his credit thus far. His first #1 single, “Dancing All Around It”, was voted the 2014 Single of the Year by Texas Music Pickers. Additionally, Mike has received national radio airplay from three different singles on Sirius/XM radio. In 2017, Brad Paisley cut a song titled “Last Time for Everything” co-written by Ryan. Later, Paisley laid down the lead guitar tracks on Mike’s eventual #1 song “The ReWrite”. Mike made his national TV debut in 2018 when he was invited to play the White House 4th of July celebration in Washington D.C. That same year, Mike was named one of Pandora’s “Artists to Watch”. With a steady tour schedule and a rapidly growing fan base, Mike Ryan is in high demand headlining venues across the country. Catch him now!
