Nashville Billboard Charting Artist and 2017 Country Music Association's Emerging Artist, The Springs, are kicking off the 41A Festival this year.
The duo first met while both were performing at the World Famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. Stewart Halcomb not only had won a Paramount Star Search singing contest when he was just 16, but by the time he was 18 he and his band had already charted three singles on the main Music Row Country Chart.
Holly, the other half of the duo, and now Stewart's wife, made it to the thrid round of preliminaries of NBC's The Voice.
The Springs' performances are a cross between Jason Aldean to Carrie Underwood to Journey, with some pop and old-time rock & roll thrown, offering something for everyone and making their shows a sing-a-long crowd-pleasing good time. This amazing duo and their band have been blessed to perform their high-energy shows with major acts Hunter Hayes, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Reba, and many other top country artists.
Even without a major record label, The Springs latest CD, Dance With Me, made its Billboard Country Chart debut at #42. This is just one of the many reasons why many in the music industry are saying The Springs are truly the Next Big Thing in Country Music.

It would be an understatement to say that a lot has happened since Whiskey Myers was last in the recording studio. Over two whirlwind years, the gritty Texas band hit #1 on the iTunes Country Chart with their breakout third album ‘Early Morning Shakes,’ earned raves everywhere from Rolling Stone to USA Today, and toured the US and Europe relentlessly, slaying massive festival crowds and sharing stages with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., Jamey Johnson, and more along the way. You’d be forgiven, then, for expecting things to work a little differently this time around when the band reunited with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb for their stellar new album, ‘Mud.’ But as it turns out, success doesn’t change a Southern gentleman, and they don’t come any more Southern than Whiskey Myers.
“Where you come from and where you grew up influences your music a lot,” says the band's leader, Cody Cannon. “As a band, we don’t go into the studio with any preconceived theme. You just sit down and you write and the songs come out naturally.”
In the end, there may be no better word for Whiskey Myers than authentic. This music is in their blood, and it flows as naturally from them as a spring feeding a mountain creek. While a record this good is sure to send their (lone)star rising higher than ever before, you can rest assured that success still won’t be changing this band any time soon. They make music they’re proud of that celebrates where they come from and makes people feel good. As far as they’re concerned, that’s all the success anyone could ever ask for.
