Ray Scott
Music lives in the heart and soul of Ray Scott. The type of authenticity and passion lives on in this North Carolina breed country singer!

Somewhere along the way, country music went and got itself lost. These days, we’ve gotten to a point where, more often than not, you can’t tell the difference between a country music singer and a bubblegum, sugar pop, TikTok kid.

Unless you’re listening to Ray Scott.

From the moment you press play on Cover the Earth, Scott’s 9th release overall, that deep baritone voice and those whiskey brown, rich guitar tones reach right through the speakers and damn near slap you in the face. The fact remains, if you’re looking for solid country music, this is the way it’s done.

While Ray Scott records rarely come with much surprise, Ray takes a few new shots on Cover the Earth. It’s not that he strays very far from his top dead center. Hell, with a voice like his and the lyrics he writes, anything Ray does is going to be country. That said, Cover the Earth has a few new bullets in the gun and a little more fuzz than anything he’s done in the past.

Aaron Craford
Molded by his love for classic country, but influenced by Seattle’s Grunge scene, Aaron Crawford’s “Cascade Country” is paving the way.

Based in the Pacific Northwest, Aaron Crawford is the founder, and original Cascade Country artist, Crawford is forging a new path: paying respect to the roots, instrumentation, and songwriting of traditional country, yet blending those flavors with the Seattle sound including the likes of the grunge scene icons Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and even Foo Fighters. Approaching his career with a blue collar mentality, Crawford writes and records his way (with a little help from his friends) choosing to build a grassroots following in the oft overlooked country scene of the Great Northwest. Penning the now ubiquitous “Evergreen” a tribute to living in the Seattle area, he has logged over 1,000 gigs, and it’s apparent. His live show is just that: a show. His charisma and stage presence entice the audience to sing along, and the powerhouse Seattle radio stations championing him and his band. If you haven’t heard of him yet, you will. His drive, enthusiasm, and desire to succeed, will most certainly make him a mainstay of the die hard country music scene.

Jackson Dean
Jackson Dean is known for his old school, gritty style country. This 21 year old has a raw knuckle approach to music!

HEADLINER 9pm

Odenton, Maryland native Jackson Dean isn’t like most of the other young male Country acts. Known for his old school, gritty style of Country, the 21-year-old songwriter has a raw knuckle approach. Following the release of his self-titled collection, Jackson’s debut album GREENBROKE, produced by Luke Dick, is set for release March 11.

Having been featured on Netflix’s The Ice Road soundtrack and Paramount Network’s Yellowstone, the swampy, stomping “Don’t Come Lookin’” heads to Country radio as his first single, impacting February 22

Mature beyond his years, Jackson has a daring and carefree spirit, having moved out at 18 years old to live in a cinderblock, concrete floor, one-room shack on the back of his grandfather’s property with no heat and no plumbing.

Selling out Maryland’s famed Ram’s Head and Union Jacks while still in high school, Jackson has joined bills over the past year with superstar acts like Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert and Brantley Gilbert

Nate Botsford 8pm

Popular Portland-based artist Nate Botsford’s country rock hybrid style is a lifetime in the making.

Popular Portland-based artist Nate Botsford’s country rock hybrid style is a lifetime in the making. Nate began playing piano when he was only five, but the Taylor acoustic guitar given to him by his dad at age 14 became the instrument that has accompanied him everywhere and helped to lay the foundation for his musical career. That career has seen up to 300 shows a year for the last five years: from coffeehouses to mainstages, Nate has pleased audiences with his feel-good tunes and relatable lyrics. Nate has shared the stage with the likes of Old Dominion, Brett Young, Chris Janson, LoCash, Lonestar and many others and calls upon his influences of Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and his big-band pianist grandfather while crafting his music.

His songs have received regular rotation radio play and won numerous awards, including 2015 Project Aloft national songwriting contest judged by industry professionals. A 25-city tour in 2016 took Nate and his music to new audiences, and it only gets bigger from there. Nate’s dream is to share his music with a wider national audience and to leave with his listeners a lasting impression of singable melodies and lyrics that, as Nate says, “Can feel were written just for them to find a glimmer of hope.” Nate’s released his most recent EP, Buzzin’, in 2019, which includes river floating, sun loving, summer song Luxury Floatt. The official music video for Luxury Float was featured by CMT and Spotify editorial playlists.

Patrick Lamb’s Hit Factory : America’s Top Cover Band
This band does old school, new school, and eveything in between like no other cover hit band! Pondo Presents Patrick’s Lambs Hit Factory!

“ A long time ago, I believe it was in 1995, during the Yonder Tree recording, I was in need of saxophonist to play a solo. I had tried a few excellent players who had come from every corner of the country who had by then become Portlanders. After 3 or 4 ‘ not quite rights’ I decided to follow my engineer’s advice and give a young kid named Patrick Lamb a try. From the moment Patrick hit the first note I knew we were going to work together for a long time. Just great all around player who understands what is needed at any given moment. Happy to call Patrick a member of the band and my friend.

On his new record “Beauty and the Beast”, Patrick is showing great taste and a mature restraint. along with a precise certainty of what he wants to communicate. Makes a tune open to many, many listens. Congrats Pat.

Gino Vannelli”
