"Profoundly personal yet also a bit mythic.”
- Music City Roots

Amy Speace
Amy Speace
ListenWatchWebsite
Amy Speace is a folk singer, timeless and classic, and a bit out of her own era. “She has one of the richest and loveliest voices in the genre and her songs are luxuriously smart,” writes Craig Havighurst (host of Nashville’s “Music City Roots). “She’s profoundly personal yet also a bit mythic.” Since her discovery in 2006 by folk-pop icon Judy Collins, Speace has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk singers. Her latest release, “That Kind Of Girl”, received rave reviews by Billboard Magazine, The New York Times and NPR.

Ruthie Foster
Living Blues Critics’ Award for
Female Blues Artist of the Year!

Ruthie Foster
ListenWatchWebsite
Described by Rolling Stone as “pure magic to watch and hear,” Ruthie Foster has been nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy — three times in a row. In addition to seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year.

There’s only one Austinite with that résumé: Ruthie Foster. And with the release of her latest album, Joy Comes Back, the Recording Academy might want to put its engraver on notice. Because every note on it confirms this truth: It’s Ruthie’s time.


A big THANK YOU to the Texas Commission on the Arts and the
National Endowment For The Arts
for assisting with funding for this program.

“A masterful guitarist, completely compelling songwriting...the man is an extremely gifted artist."

Chuck Cannon
Chuck  Cannon
ListenWatchWebsite
Chuck grew up in the low country of the South Carolina coast. His father and grand-father were both Pentecostal preachers, so his earliest musical influence was a unique strain of gospel music that was an amalgam of Appalachian folk and black spirituals. He started singing in church before he was five years old and it soon became clear that music would be the driving passion in his life. His first album was Johnny Cash’s "At Folsom Prison" and his influences include: The Beatles, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, the STAX stuff, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Jim Croce, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, and others too numerous to mention.

Chuck was a solo performer on the beach circuit for several years before moving to Nashville in 1984 to attend Belmont University, where he studied Music Business and Finance. In 1988 he met producer Marshall Morgan, who signed him as a staff song-writer to Taste Auction Music. In 1992 Chuck opened his own publishing company, Wacissa River Music, Inc. An active champion of songwriters' issues, he served as President of the Nashville Songwriter's Association International (NSAI, 2001-2003). He still serves on the Board and Legislative Committees.

His recent honors include BMI's Two-Million-Air award for the Academy of Country Music's 1993 Song of the Year and international hit, "I Love The Way You Love Me," and BMI’s Million-Air award for the #1 hit, "Me Too" written with Toby Keith. As well, Chuck received Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association nominations for the #1 hit, "How Do You Like Me Now," written with country artist Toby Keith. Chuck's last single was Toby Keith's "AMERICAN SOLDIER" and Wynonna's "FLIES ON THE BUTTER (you can't go home again)" with Naomi Judd.

"Gorgeous harmonies, thrilling arrangements, and some remarkably insightful, honest writing. " - Sing Out!
The Honey Dewdrops
The Honey Dewdrops
ListenWatchWebsite
In the summer of 2014, after a long stretch of living on the road, performing and writing across the U.S., Americana songwriters and Virginia natives Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish, collectively known as THE HONEY DEWDROPS, decided to settle down in Baltimore, MD. "Touring is like collecting images of landscapes, sounds of voices, contents of stories, moods of places and environments," says Wortman. "All of that can be useful. It tells you something about human nature, about how the world works, little by little.” And so the couple took their experiences on the road, and dug in to write and record their fourth album, TANGLED COUNTRY, in their new home. It’s a beautiful and engaging take on modern American roots music and the first album of theirs entirely written, arranged, and recorded in one place; a testament to the power of home.

Throughout Tangled Country, Wortman and Parrish perform as if the most honorable thing to be is honest in themselves. Tangled Country bears witness to The Honey Dewdrops' simply being themselves, stewards of the Americana tradition, having seen the world and grown a little older and now finally come home.
