“It kind of came to the ultimatum: either fight bulls or play music.” Country singer Lane Smith is no stranger to hard living and hard work—raised just north of San Antonio in Spring Branch, Texas, he grew up rodeoing, specifically as a bullfighter. He chose that piece of the equation because it was the part he could control, and it was a bit less scary than riding bulls. As an outsider, admittedly, it’s a little hard to grasp the nuance.

The overlap between country music and rodeo culture is strong, and well documented. Chris LeDoux and Garth Brooks told us all about it—the sport isn’t for the faint of heart. It stretches away from home, from loved ones, with long, dirty hours and no guarantee of a payoff.

In fact, it’s more likely to imagine a scenario of walking away beat up, busted, and possibly even further away from a goal than where you might’ve started. It’s not that different than playing shows on the road or that far removed from the idea of embarking on an independent career in country music that you plan to build from the ground up.

But that’s exactly what Smith has done. He released his first EP in 2018 and another in 2021, with singles earning more than a million plays on all platforms. His catchy blend of country music “will chill you to the bones while you’re tappin’ your feet,” as his song “Big Show” exclaims.

And it seems to be catching on. He’s already crossed off a few of his bucket-list venues, including the legendary Gruene Hall, along with supporting slots with artists like Kyle Park, Matt Stell, Colt Ford, and Chase Matthews, to name just a few. “I loved rodeoing from the day I started to the day I decided music was where I wanted to be,” he says. “But I had two dreams growing up; one was rodeo, and one was music, and I’m glad that’s where I’ve landed now.”


Tyler Braden has the gritty powerhouse vocals, the expressive pen and the ability to deliver a lyric with complete conviction worthy of a headliner. His new Warner Music Nashville EP, Neon Grave, combines deep-rooted country tradition with the rollicking, high-energy instincts of a born rock ‘n’ roller. The project’s flagship single, “Try Losing One,” hit No. 1 on SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 Countdown. Billboard asserted that the fiery, yearning ballad features “one of the most moving vocal deliveries in country music right now,” while MusicRow declared that it “burns with ferocious power and passion.” Braden began crafting his sound as a teenager in Slapout, AL, where he demonstrated his mettle playing four-hour cover sets. He continued to perform between shifts as a firefighter in both Montgomery and Nashville. His first date at the homegrown Whiskey Jam concert series in January 2017 paved his path to today. With 200 MILLION streams to his name, Braden is now taking stages world-round. His growing list of tour credits includes Brooks & Dunn, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley and Mitchell Tenpenny; this summer, he will join select dates of Luke Bryan’s Country On run. With studio recordings that pack the punch of his propulsive live performances, Braden’s energy and emotion are connecting with fans across the globe.


Treaty Oak Revival is a Texas country rock band founded deep in the heart of West Texas. Starting in 2019; the band has formed itself on a foundation of Texas Red Dirt Country combined with its influences of punk and southern rock in their style and playing.


Saddle Bronc athlete turned neo-traditional country music sensation Chancey Williams has gone from competing on horseback, to performing as a headliner at fairs, festivals, and venues across the country. As one of only two artists (Chris LeDoux) to both compete in the rodeo and perform on the main stage at Cheyenne Frontier Days, and the only singer/songwriter to be endorsed by CINCH®, Williams is the next authentic cowboy of country music.

Growing up on a ranch in the northeastern corner of Wyoming, Williams is one of the proud few hailing from Moorcroft, WY – a town so small it doesn’t need stoplights. Rodeo, wrestling, and academic talents took him first to Casper College, and then to the University of Wyoming.  Williams earned several degrees, including a Master’s in Public Administration, but it was music and the camaraderie of the road that continued to take him all over the United States.

2023 brought a string of continued successes – Williams kicked off the year with the release of his latest album, One of These Days, was invited to make his debut at the historic Grand Ole Opry, played multiple dates with Parker McCollum and Ian Munsick, made an appearance at Cheyenne Frontier Days with Dierks Bentley, stopped to visit military families at several Fisher House locations nationwide, and capped the year performing on national television opening the 5th round of the National Finals Rodeo and headlining the main showroom at South Point (“ground zero”) at the most important rodeo event in the world.

In January, Williams released his new single “A Cowboy Who Would,” this time with hit songwriter Brice Long at the production helm. The tune – which offers a shift in the typical “leaving kind” cowboy mentality and, instead, finds the former saddle bronc athlete opting to hang his hat with the woman he loves – has already been added by more than 150 country stations nationwide, was featured by PickleJar’s “Up All Night” program (which is syndicated on 47 Cumulus stations nationwide), was featured on country music’s biggest and best longest-running countdown show in North America, Country Top 40’s Launchpad with Fitz!, and is receiving airplay on Local Radio Network’s MainStream Country and Super Star Country show formats. His 2024 tour includes Williams’ debut performance at The Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, a headlining spot at the Black Hills Stock, and a return to the Grand Ole Opry.


Danny Stevens is a Nashville based singer and songwriter who was also the frontman of The Audition, an underrated and prolific pop-rock band that was active in the early to late 2000’s. Danny admittedly hasn’t done any long-form interviews about his time with The Audition so we get the most in-depth and honest record to date about Danny first joining the band, their relationship with the controversial Victory Records, to the band’s quiet disbandment. Danny also unveils his new solo project, which hasn’t been officially announced, but will be sweeping the airways in the next few months. As you’ll hear him describe, this is just the beginning of the most exciting phase in his musical career.
