  • Brett Eldredge

    Brett Eldredge

    Country

    Country music singer Brett Eldredge was born in Paris, IL and grew up listening to singers Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, and Bobby Darin. After hearing Brooks & Dunn at the age of 16, he became fascinated by country music, a fascination that stayed with him when he began attending Elmhurst College in Chicago. After a trip to Nashville, where he heard his cousin, Terry Eldredge, a veteran of Dolly Parton's band and a member of the Grascals, play at the Station Inn, Eldredge was inspired to transfer to Middle Tennessee State University, immersing himself in studying the vocal stylings of country singers like George Jones, Ray Price, and Vince Gill. He also began working on writing his own material and started performing at songwriter nights in the Nashville area. Eventually he was introduced to producer and publisher Byron Gallimore, who signed Eldredge to his publishing company and encouraged him to continue writing songs. Eldredge began tracking some of the best of his compositions, and following a showcase in Nashville, signed a recording offer from Atlantic Records. Eldredge's first single, 'Raymond,' a poignant song about an Alzheimer's patient, was issued in September of 2010. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

  • Logan Mize

    Logan Mize

    Country

    Logan Mize is a Country music artist/songwriter from Clearwater, Kansas. In April of 2009, Logan signed a publishing/record deal with Big Yellow Dog Music and a booking deal with William Morris Endeavor followed in August of 2010. In 2012, Logan’s second album, Nobody in Nashville (released on Big Yellow Dog Music), 
    charted to No. 49 on Billboard Country Albums and No. 15 on Billboard Heatseekers Albums. Mize has opened for multiple headlining acts including Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band, Blake Shelton (on the Blake Shelton Country Cruise), Stoney LaRue, Hank Williams and a special tribute with Merle Haggard. Logan has also experienced success as a songwriter, notably when country music singer Bucky Covington recorded his song “Mexicoma” on his album Good Guys, which charted to No. 30 on Billboard Country Albums and No.43 on Billboard Independent Albums.

     

    Logan Mize weaves yarn with equal measures elegance (“Sunflowers”) and energy (“I Remember Everything”). Evidence: The Music City resident’s buoyant Nobody in Nashville. Mize’s fiery new collection backs earthy (“Good Life”) and ethereal narratives (“The State of Your Heart”) and with richly detailed storytelling (“Hey Carolina”). At peaks, the 26-year-old balances heartache (“High-N-Dry”) and hope (“Rock and Roll Band”) with insightful wisdom gained through personal experience. “I got married about a year and a half ago,” Mize says. “So, pre-marriage heartbreak songs and post-marriage happy songs are mixed together. I wanted them to have a timeless feel.”

    The rapidly rising songwriter undoubtedly has succeeded. Nobody in Nashville fuels both punchy country (“I Give In”) and raw rock and roll (“Ball and Chain”) with an intangible everyman appeal. “Logan has that great gift of authenticity,” says Daniel Tashian, who co-wrote four songs and co-produced the new album (due March 13). “Like those poets of the heartland that came before him – Dylan, Petty, Mellencamp – his images are real and hard-won. He's not making up words; these are the pictures of his life.” One legend particularly helps the Kansas native craft his singular story.

    “Tom Petty’s my favorite songwriter both melodically and lyrically,” Mize admits. “There’s a lot of times I’m listening to Echo or the Wildflowers record and go, ‘I want something that sounds like that.’ So, I pull from places like that, but I definitely don’t want to try to think about anybody else when I’m writing. I want to pull straight from my own head. I keep it my own for sure.” His mission statement emerges in the seamless title track. “I’m just three chords and twelve hundred miles,” he sings defiantly as mushrooming drums and spiky guitars punctuate his point, “from telling the whole world the honest truth.”

    Mize’s lofty aim pays high dividends: The singer-songwriter has shared stages with boldfaced names like Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, The Band Perry, Billy Currington, Pat Green, Stoney LaRue and the Charlie Daniels Band. In fact, his high-octane live show, infectious melodies and distinctive vocals have turned heads throughout Nashville and beyond. “You know it’s Logan on a song,” says celebrated songwriter Liz Rose (Taylor Swift’s Grammy-winning “White Horse”), who co-wrote “I Remember Everything” with Mize and Tashian. “Nobody sounds like him, so real and so much grit!” Bucky Covington was so taken by Mize’s song “Mexicoma” that he recorded it on his album Live from Rockingham and frequently anchors shows around the boozy border travelogue.

    Mize takes such achievements in even stride. He’s far more concerned about more artistically fulfilling goals. “Oh, sure, it’d be great to get a Tim McGraw cut,” says the staff writer for Nashville powerhouse Big Yellow Dog. “But I just want to write good songs and I hope people like them. I like to paint a picture that’s easy to look at and is just something that feels good and has vivid imagery.” Stellar song craft runs deep in his blood: Logan counts Billy Mize, longtime Merle Haggard steel guitarist and pioneer of the Bakersfield sound, as kin. The connection once landed him onstage before The Hag himself. “They called me to come out and play a couple songs at my uncle Billy’s 80th birthday party at Buck Owens Crystal Palace in Bakersfield,” Logan Mize recalls. “I was getting ready to go up and play and there was this interview playing with Haggard talking about Billy Mize’s songwriting. He said that his favorite Billy Mize song was called ‘Who Will Buy the Wine’ and that’s the song I had to play. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Afterward, Haggard gave me the nod like, ‘You don’t suck that bad.’”

  • Dani Flowers

    Dani Flowers

    Country

    Dani was born Ida Danielle Flowers in Effingham, Illinois. Her vocal talent became apparent at an early age, as she made her first public appearance at a local county fair at six years old, where she placed second in a talent contest against children

    all considerably older than her. By the time she was a teenager, Dani was a regular performer in her small hometown of Vandalia, IL at celebrations, along with singing at her church whenever asked. She plays piano, fiddle, guitar, a couple songs on the banjo and a couple on the mandolin. She even played trombone in her junior high and high school bands.

    Dani’s father died when she was six. Her mother raised her, and ignited in Dani a keen interest in music. Her mother was one of eleven children, all of whom played or sang. They were all raised by parents who played guitar and sang. Dani’s grandparents were very well known in their hometown for putting together benefits for local citizens in financial need. Their family sang at all the local celebrations and had square dances in their barn every Saturday night.

    Dani’s love for country music is apparent in her strong, smooth voice. She tells everyone that there is a song on one of Daryl Singletary’s albums that says, “Mama used to ‘whup’ me with a George Jones album, that’s why I sing this way.” Well, Dani’s mom put her to bed every night with a Patty Loveless cassette tape. Maybe that’s why she sings and writes like she does.
