In 1986, Greg Hudik’s first show ever was in front of an estimated crowd of 400,000+ college students, which was hosted by MTV. It was promoted and financed by Chewels, Pontiac and Hawaiian Tropic. An estimated 80 million people tuned in, worldwide, to watch MTV’s very first Spring – Break in Daytona, an internationally televised event. It was an awesome lineup with The Beach Boys, Mr. Mister, The Bangels, Starship, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, as well as Greg Hudik!
John Rosin, who recorded Peter Frampton’s, Jackson Browne’s, and Bob Seger’s live records, also recorded Greg Hudik’s, first ever, live record made even more special because it was released on Greg’s own “Platinum Records Nashville” label, when he was only 24 years old! What a special day! This was a great way to take the first steps in his lifelong quest and also, beginning his first quarter of life, living for his music career.
With the passing of his father when Greg was still in the 5th grade, Greg learned the value of a dollar, early on, from a mother that had to raise 6 children of her own.
So, Greg saved enough of his hard-earned money to finance his music startup and career. Greg’s childhood prayers and his dream career literally started on the right note that very special day on MTV, and he continues to live his dream that God put in his heart as a child still today, living with no regrets. As a Southern Rock artist Greg Hudik has launched with success, many singles to Triple A, and Mainstream Rock.
Greg Hudik has only released a handful of singles to Country Radio. Writing 42 country songs published by Sony Tree ATV, and 62 country songs published by Erv Woolsey, and George Strait. Greg Hudik has made Nashville his home and he has been writing on Music Row for well over a quarter century.
George Strait recorded his very first “Honkeytonk Gospel” song. Self-titled and written by Greg Hudik, “I Found Jesus On The Jailhouse Floor”, released on the only George Strait record to ever debut #1 the first day of release.
“I miss Living in A Country Town” is Greg Hudik’s very first Uptempo traditional country song ever that he has released as a radio single to Country radio.
With faith, belief, and hard work, Greg Hudik’s only heart given dream and goal since childhood is to leave behind a good message in song with the gift of music that only comes from God.
The video for “I Miss Living in a Country Town” was shot in Lynchburg, TN, the home of Jack Daniels Whiskey and the true epitome of a “Country Town”.

At three years of age, Pamela McNeill starred as an angel in her church Christmas Eve pageant. When she saw the audience smiling back, she declared that was what she wanted to do the rest of her life. That statement still rings true today. McNeill might not have known the power in her words that night, but she has lived her dream and toured the world wowing audiences with her powerful vocals. Career highlights include performing for the Queen of England, playing at Royal Albert Hall, performing at the Tokyo Dome with Japan's pop sensation TM Network for a crowd of over 50,000, opening for Etta James, and headlining at The Staples Center in Los Angeles.
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.
In her early twenties, McNeill moved to England and landed a gig touring with British superstar Rick Astley. She also appeared in his video, “Take Me to Your Heart.“ After returning to America, she was introduced to legendary performer and composer Yanni backstage at the Target Center in Minneapolis. The two hit it off professionally and shortly afterwards McNeill collaborated with Yanni, writing lyrics to several of his songs on his albums, “Tribute” and “Ethnicity”.
In 2011, McNeill released her fourth album, “Heartaches and Miracles”, which caught the attention of Grammy Award winning songwriter, Bobby E. Boyd. “From the first time I heard Pamela I was blown away by her powerhouse voice and phenomenal songs,” Boyd recalls, “Imagine if you had a singer who could do Kelly Clarkson and Stevie Nicks, and that same person could write songs in the same caliber as Lori McKenna and Carol King. Well, you've got that and more in Pamela McNeill.” Boyd contacted McNeill and the two wrote a couple of songs together online. Later that year McNeill made a trip to Nashville for a week of writing. This kicked off a friendship and professional association with Boyd that continues today.
Over the past few years McNeill has split her time between Nashville and her home state of Minnesota, where she performs over 150 shows a year doing gigs with the iconic Fabulous Armadillos,“Rumours and Dreams Fleetwood Mac Tribute” band, “Wild Angels – the Women of Rock, Pop, and Country”, “Rock and Roll XMAS Spectacular” as well headlining her own Pamela McNeill concerts. She has written with many Music City icons including Pam Tillis, Roxie Dean, and Buffy Lawson (Bombshell). In addition to Yanni, her songs have been cut by Wynonna Judd, and she recently caught the attention of Reba McEntire with her song, “Captivated.“ In 2017 she received a rare standing ovation at the world famous Bluebird Cafe after her debut performance.
McNeill's latest album, “Solitary” released March 14, 2019, was co-produced in Nashville with Boyd. It has already garnished rave reviews for her video release tribute to Prince with her song, “The Bigger Picture”. All fourteen songs were penned by McNeill and reflect different seasons of life – the struggles and victories, the love and love lost, and the power to persevere.

Dustin Chapman is a young singer/songwriter who has climbed hills and entered valleys, as he is in the midst of a budding country music career, but also in the middle of an extreme medical battle with a rare esophageal disease called achalasia for which he has traveled all around the east coast for treatment and received over six major surgeries after being hospitalized various times; however, Chapman uses his talents to praise God and to uplift others who are fighting their own battles. A mixture of country, gospel, and blues comes together to create his signature soulful southern sound. Writing lyrics that make people examine a variety of situations taking place in their own lives, Chapman is showing that life is expelled through the moments when we take the biggest risks and to never truly discredit anyone’s ability to win a fight.
In 2017, Chapman released his debut EP which charted #52 on the iTunes Country Charts and afterwards, was nominated for two country music awards, including Gospel Song of the Year for his original song "Set Me Free" at the 2018 Carolina Country Music Awards. On April 30th 2019, Chapman released a single "Lead the Way," a song that has impacted hundreds of thousands through a viral video of him performing it at Duke's Cancer Center when he was hospitalized there in 2018. The video was picked up by several news outlets, including NBC's the Early Today Show, The Washington Post, and the Nightly News with Lester Holt.
Chapman has continued to release music throughout 2020, garnering four songwriting awards for his songs "Plus One," "Baby ft. Angel Paez," and his newest single "Slow Dance." Released on June 30, 2020, "Slow Dance" has been added to many radio stations all over the world and the music video has garnered over 100,000 and shared on many platforms. Ultimately each success for Chapman brings him closer to his overall goal--to show listeners that his songs, lyrics, and musical ventures are not about him, but about the power of music—the power it has to restore brokenness, encourage hopefulness, and breathe life into the lifeless.
It was just Chapman who allowed himself to break down walls and enter a place of vulnerability that would eventually result in others doing the same.
