About the Bands:
Dirty Grass Soul Bio:
Proudly hailing from the musically rich foothills of Cleveland County (Shelby, NC), Dirty Grass Soul has been entertaining audiences across the Carolinas and beyond since their formation in 2011. With a sound that draws much influence from traditional music of the North Carolina foothills, Dirty Grass Soul manages to bring a new, refreshed, and re-energized sound to their music that falls somewhere between country, bluegrass, and southern rock & roll reminiscent of acts like The Charlie Daniels Band and The Marshall Tucker Band. Rather than simply relying on heavy guitar leads, Dirty Grass Soul offers instrumentation that mixes in a heavy dose of fiddle, pedal steel guitar, and banjo in addition to the guitar. DGS is lead by founding members Kevin Dedmon (Fiddle, Vocals, Guitar) and Lance Watson (Bass, Mandolin). They are joined by Tommy Smith (Electric Guitar), Dedmon's brother Kris Dedmon (Banjo), Glenn Miller (Pedal Steel Guitar), and Jared Miller (Vocals & Percussion).
After touring the Carolina's behind their self-released debut album "The Long Way", as well as shows with the likes of many of premier national bands under their belt, Dirty Grass Soul has earned a reputation as one of the southeast's emerging Southern Rock/Alt. Country bands. Following up their 2016 release of The Long Way, DGS is currently on tour promoting their highly anticipated sophomore album "New Day of Work" released August 23, 2018!
Whether it is the hint of bluegrass, outlaw country, or rock & roll you hear in each song, their sound is uniquely Dirty Grass Soul. From Dedmon's down home/working class lyrics to the blazing instrumental breaks, Dirty Grass Soul is sure to offer a little something for everyone. Be sure to visit www.DGSoul.com & follow or “like” Dirty Grass Soul on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates about the happenings of the band.
The Piedmont Boys Bio:
"The Piedmont Boys’ brand of outlaw country is loud and proud ... It’s the anti-thesis to country radio, something The Piedmont Boys I’m sure will wear with a badge of pride."
Greg Payne – Vocals, Guitar
Matt Parks – Fiddle, Vocals
Stuart McConnell – Lead Guitar, Vocals
Tony Pilot – Drums Mike Johnson – Bass, Vocals
The Piedmont Boys started out in Greenville, SC over a decade ago by frontman Greg Payne. They’ve played thousands of shows, logged thousands of miles, released four albums, toured half the continental U.S., shared stages with everyone from Eric Church to Charlie Robison..hell, they’ve even played rodeos from Oregon to Texas. But wherever they go, the refrain of the fans who come up to them remains the same: “I never liked country music until I heard y’all.”
What these folks must be talking about is the watered-down pop-country stuff you hear on the radio nowadays, because if you don’t like REAL country…Merle, Willie, Waylon, Johnny…you won’t like The Piedmont Boys.
If you don’t like against-the-grain, outlaw brand, whiskey-soaked, blue-collar honky-tonk music, the kind where the volume and the energy are dead ringers for rock & roll but the sound is gritty hard-country, you won’t like The Piedmont Boys.
If you don’t like a live show that’s pedal-to-the-floorboard, rock the place down to the dirt and drain every drop of sweat from every human being in the house, you won’t like The Piedmont Boys.
If you don’t like your Jerry Reed mixed with a little Metallica if you don’t like a band that loves playing live so much that they’ve had one weekend off in seven years, if you don’t like country mixed with bluegrass mixed with southern rock mixed with a little…make that a lot…of Jack Daniels, you won’t like The Piedmont Boys. If any of that sounds like one hell of a good time, though, y’all come on in. The door’s always open.
Think the name "Outshyne" is best described by five small town guys with half a million road miles and ten years together. Most people would have given up with all this but not these four from South Carolina. They have made it from high school friends, jobs, onto a career in music and becoming a family. Their longevity and determination says a lot about their character. Though they have had setbacks success hasn't been far behind. They had a single "Moonlight Crush" go Number 1 on Sirius/XM's the Highway. Along with that their album "Starting Over" debuting at Number 11 on iTunes. They have been able to record songs written by hit makers such as Jeffrey Steele, Cole Swindell, Shay Mooney and Florida Georgia Line. Along the way they have played some of biggest music festivals such as "Taste of Country" in New York, CMAfest in Nashville and Carolina Country Music Festival in Myrtle Beach. Outshyne have been lucky enough to share the stage with Jake Owen, Keith Urban, Gary Allan, Colt Ford, Eric Church, Justin Moore and Darius Rucker just to name a few. The brutal road schedule and music has gained them the best fans in the world. Their presence on social media shows that with 38,000 fans on Facebook, 22,000 on Twitter and 11,000 on Instagram. So if you have a chance download their music or even better catch a live show and you won't be disappointed.

AARON TIPPIN Bio:
Tippin has crusaded for the working man and woman since he ripped country music wide open with his uncompromising single “You’ve Got To Stand For Something.” His voice continued to ring loud and clear with such hits as “I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way”, “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With The Radio”, That’s As Close As I’ll Get To Loving You,” “My Blue Angel” and “Kiss This”. Five of his albums are certified “Gold” and a sixth CD—Read Between The Lines—stands at the “Platinum” level. Tippin’s honest lyrics and direct, impassioned vocals have built a large and devoted audience.
