Bobby E. Boyd: Bobby E. Boyd Bobby E. Boyd (aka 'Bandera Bob') is a Grammy Award Winning Songwriter with his most recent hit "Bless The Broken Road" (co-written with Marcus Hummon and Jeff Hanna) recorded by 'Rascal Flatts'. The song was No.1 for 6 weeks in 2005 and won a Grammy for Country Song of The Year in Feb. 2006. Pamela McNeill: McNeill grew up between the Mississippi River and Highway 61 in the small town of Minnesota City, Minnesota with a population of less than 200. She was raised in a home musically divided. Her mom brought in the pop genre, while her dad was all about country music, and these mixed influences can still be heard in McNeill's music today. McNeill recalls, “I spent all my allowance buying pop and country songs, and I learned how to play keys on my grandmother's Hammond organ.” In junior high and high school she played trombone in the jazz band and orchestra. By sixteen, she was in her first rock band opening shows for the iconic Minneapolis band, The Suburbs. Adam Wood: Adam Wood is a songwriter and producer hailing from the musically rich "Muscle Shoals" area of North Alabama. His songs have been performed around the world including venues such as The Grand Ol’ Opry and the Ryman Auditorium. He has over a decade of experience on the Nashville music scene and has written songs recorded by artists such as Trace Adkins, Lonestar, Delta Rae, and Smithfield. His songs have been featured on CMT and Sirius/XM radio and have been streamed millions of times on platforms such as Spotify and YouTube. Adam is currently signed as a staff writer in a co-venture between platinum-selling country artist Lee Brice and Curb publishing. Bart Walker: Guitar and vocal powerhouse Bart Walker calls his debut album Who I Am, and that’s absolutely perfect. From the scalding, stuttering riff that opens “Austin City Limits Sign,” the album’s first track, to the six-string crescendo of his funky, loping take on John Lee Hooker’s “Dimples” that closes the 11-tune set the CD is a portrait of the Nashville-based guitarist as a dreamer, a fan, a survivor, a creative dynamo and, most of all, a one-man argument for the continued vitality and emotional heat of the blues.
