Dwayne Ferris
: Since I was a little boy watching my dad sing and yodel some good old Wilf Carter songs, I have had a love for music. Computers and widgets are not my thing and my passion is to write songs and sing them. The song Memories Of Dad took me an hour to write just after my dad’s funeral but I never sang it in public until very recently.  I like to sing my songs and hope they touch someone’s hearts, give them some comfort, bring back memories of happy days and just enjoy them.

Daniel Owen was raised in southern Missouri where his mother, Shirley McKinney was born and raised. Her love for Country music came from listening to artists like Hank Williams Sr and Merl Haggard who were early inspirations for Daniel. His mother bought him his first guitar at 14yrs old and the first song he learned was Ghost Riders in The Sky. Through his life they moved between Missouri to Illinois to Florida but he always found himself being drawn back to Southern Missouri.

Brian Lee Robinson “My life has been a battle between my creative and self-destructive tendencies. Sometimes the self-destructive side actually feeds the creative side. As a songwriter, I try to put all those experiences into each one of my songs.” - Brian Lee Robinson

The best songwriters tap into life’s ups and downs and then deliver those powerful emotions through lyrics and melody. Perhaps no one knows this fact better than a singer/songwriter from Texas named Brian Lee Robinson. Over the years, armed with only a pen and six-string, he has turned his own demons into demos and life stories into songs.

Dennis paul Ledbetter: I love country music. I always have. The heart of a real country song is in the lyrics. For three minutes or so you can associate with something that has happened in your own life. It could be an opinion you agree or disagree with, a hurt you have felt, or a love that sustains you. That is the kinds of songs I like to write and sing.
