" I Need To Feel This" is very special to me. It is the second single off my EP, "Somethin' 'Bout A Song." I co-wrote the song with Evan Thompson and it came from raw emotion and was about a real life experience I was going through that day. It is without a doubt one of my most favorite songs I have ever written and truly reflects who I am. I had so much fun filming this video at a local park in Nashville and it was directed by my talented friend, Jude Salazar. Hope you like it!

This is a song about believing in yourself when times get tough!!
Rod Black is a Country Rock Singer Songwriter, who grew up on vintage country classics from Southern Rock Pioneers to the original country outlaws, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings & Johnny Cash.
Rod has seen success with a top 20 Billboard song on Canadian radio, which led to his performance at Merritt, BC’s ‘Rockin’ River Fest’ where he joined a legendary lineup of national country greats, including Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young, Big & Rich, Dallas Smith, and others.
Influences that have and continue to inspire Rod as a singer/songwriter include Elvis, Cash, Waylon, Willie, Kristofferson, Jovi, Garth Brooks, Keith Urban, AC/DC, The Black Crows, Kid Rock, and Tom Petty.
His career in music started in hard rock. He was the front man for a rock group called ‘Jet Black Stare’ which was founded in 2007. The band’s name was inspired by a photo of Johnny Cash. His first big break came on January 7, 2007 when Rod Black signed with Island/ Def Jam in New York City. ‘Ready to Roll’, a song from their debut album, soon rose to the top #26 on the American Rock Billboard charts.
By 2011, ‘Jet Black Stare’ parted ways with Island/Def Jam. During that time Rod’s father fell ill, but before he passed, he encouraged his son to go back to his roots of country music. This impacted Rod who took time to reflect on his musical journey. His decision to launch a country music career that would soon pay off!
In 2014, Black launched a solo career with the release of the single “Keepin’ On” to country radio. It was a deeply personal song and one with which Rod personally identified. The song became a Top 20 single on the Canadian Billboard Charts.
In January, 2018, Rod Black signed with Bristol Records, a Canadian boutique indie record label, specializing in creating rich musical traditions with like-minded artists who will work hard to do the country legacy proud.

Charles Parker is a triple threat, who not only can sing and play guitar but also writes on a level far above most of his peers. His unique music is a place where country, folk and rock cross paths on the way to a remarkably contemporary sound. Through his work being a professional musician in cover bands and tribute bands, Parker is a seasoned performer who is known for his strong work ethic, passion for music and determination to persevere. With his over 20 years of experience, the journey continues through the release of his new single “Party Girls”.
Born and raised in Baltimore Maryland, Parker started life as a very shy kid. “My Mom bought me my first guitar when I was about 10 yrs old. She said she wanted me to be like Elvis. It took several years to actually learn how to play it. I spent my early years listening to 70's pop stars such as The Bay City Rollers, Patridge Family etc. Then I saw Kiss Alive 2 in the department store and that changed it all. No more Teen idol pop. My influences went from BCR to Kiss then the Metal years came in. Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and all the Hair Bands.
I learned to play everything I could. That’s why in my cover bands, we can pretty much play anything the audience asks for. I’ve been able to make a living as a full time musicians for quite a long time which is unheard of around here.”
Parker’s debut album as a solo artist, Bring Back The Sun, featured a sound that is big yet stripped down with infectious melodies and catchy hooks. “When I sat down to write the album Bring Back the Sun, I don’t remember really trying to do it, it sort of just came out. I just remember sitting down with an acoustic and strumming some chords and humming a melody.
Parker released his first single to Country radio in Sept 2017 "Bring back the Sun " which charted at #81 on the Country Music Breakout Chart. Recordedin Nashville throughout 2017-2018 with some of the best session players, ”Party Girls” was released to Country radio in April 2018.

It’s in her blood. Sara comes from a musical family who recognized her tone and pitch at just four years old when she started singing “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”. Not long thereafter, she joined her mom and dad on stage and eventually opened for Tanya Tucker. Seeking meaning and comfort following the passing of her mother, she turned to songwriting. Sara wrote her first song “Heaven’s Gate” in tribute to her mom, the woman who gave her vocal chops, an appreciation for Patsy Cline and a love of all things country.
Fast forward to 2016. Sara toured the US, became a seasoned live performer with an all-girl country group. She spent her spare time writing songs with her songwriting partner, Heidi Hamels, and recording with Nashville producer Zac Maloy (Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Daughtry), getting the opportunity to perform at legendary Blue Bird Cafe. Sara adds: “Performing is my life. It’s not a job to me, it’s my passion and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”
Jump. Not one to play it safe, Sara left her group, moved to Nashville and “jumped” into becoming a serious songwriter and recording artist, finding her style with her wide-ranging voice suited to her songs. Sara draws inspiration from a broad range of country and popular artists — from Patsy to Dolly to Celine & Christina. In her debut EP, “New Girl” (HH Entertainment, 2018) Sara shows a sweet, ethereal beauty in her ballad “Fireflies” to soaring highs and grit of her first single, “Jump”, and “Pray and Pray and Drink”. At the same time, she and her co-writers Maloy and Hamels are equally comfortable as simple storytellers in “New Girl”, the somewhat biographical title song. Sara is proud to include her version of the Lauren Alaina penned ballad “Leaving Me” to round out her debut EP. Sara looks forward to sharing her music with the world — one fan at a time if she has to; after all, it’s in her blood.

We often hear stories about dreams that could have been, yet were forfeited because of relationships or obstacles that got in the way. Ruined This Town illustrates the other side of this story, people who chase their dreams and in doing so, often have to make hard sacrifices. The towns and relationships they leave behind, whether for the better or worse, are never the same when they return.
Born and raised in the heart of the Midwest Lee Gantt is a singer/songwriter from Columbus, OH. Growing up just 10 miles from one of the largest universities in the country Lee cut his teeth playing in clubs while attending college at The Ohio State University. The unique blend of old-style country lyrics and new school country melodies are hallmarks of the Lee Gantt sound. Gritty, heartfelt lyrics with powerful driving melodies help to fortify the deep connection Lee has with his fans.
Lee developed his style from a variety of influences including Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks, Eric Church, and Conway Twitty but primarily credits Kenny Chesney for inspiring him to become the writer and performer he is today. “The Way Kenny can tell a story and describe a scene you can almost close your eyes and imagine yourself there in that moment,” says Gantt. Chesney inspired him to become a writer and performer who cannot only invoke emotion but help the listener to cope with the harsh realities of life, love, and coming of age.
For the past 7 years, Lee has been touring across the country performing in over 25 states and opening for some of the biggest names in country music such as Chris Young, Dustin Lynch, Thompson Square, Phil Vassar, Love and Theft, Neal Mccoy, Colt Ford, Easton Corbin and many more!
