Dylan Schneider is going out on his Bad Decisions Tour and is stopping by Ponderosa Lounge and Grill in Portland, OR on October 4th!

Headliner – Dylan Schneider

A self-taught visionary, Dylan Schneider first started performing and writing at the age of 14, fearless and skilled far beyond his years. Forging his mark on the Country music community and fans alike with songs such as “Two Black X’s” (2016), “How Does It Sound” (2017), and “How to Country” (2019), Schneider rode a wave of momentum throughout his teens, gaining a devoted fan base and tenacious online following.

Now, at only 24-years-old, he’s amassed a social-media following of 1.8M+ fans, banked over 350M on-demand streams, and has toured alongside superstars like Florida Georgia Line, Morgan Wallen, Kane Brown, Scotty McCreery, Nate Smith, and more. And all throughout, Schneider kept the tunes coming, working at an all-out sprint.

Hustling, grinding and sharpening his artistry and songwriting, the Indiana native, signed to BBR Music Group/BMG Nashville, is ready to take his career to the next level.

‘It’s time to get some new songs written, and I want that to be the introduction to a new chapter,” says Schneider. “To me, it’s a new beginning.”

A natural trailblazer, Schneider’s evolved style demands attention. He’s always blurred the line between Country and Pop, and his new songs once again break new ground, landing just ahead of Country’s cutting edge. Mixing modern Pop sensibility with a down-home feel, his sound is unrestrained, as he integrates the punchy edge of Rock with arena-sized beats and modern pop hooks.

“Somebody like me, having so much that I’m influenced by and so much that I listen to, I’m always finding new doors that need to be opened,” he explains.

Embracing his irresistible rock-n-roll edge and compelling pop-country swagger, Schneider has gracefully landed the tricky jump from teenaged talent to full-fledged artist, having co-written Dustin Lynch’s Top 5 hit song “Momma’s House” and scored two RIAA-certified Gold records. Now, he has something to say and the tools to say it with conviction – and this is just the beginning.

Schneider kicked off 2024 on Nate Smith’s “World On Fire” Tour and released his latest EP, Bad Decisions, on April 26th, right before making his Stagecoach Festival debut performance. He will be joining Kane Brown on his “In The Air” Tour this fall.

Finding “storylines that make country music listeners go wild is his superpower” and Schneider “not only lives up to his hitmaker status, but he exceeds it” (All Country News). Featuring his viral songs “Ain’t Missin’ You” and title track “Bad Decisions” that PopCulture demanded to “PLAY IT LOUD,” the project includes new songs “Carhartt,” “Ruin This Town” and “Buy That Girl A Beer” that are sure to catapult his already viral resume.

After posting a snippet of a sharp-witted chorus on TikTok, the sound went viral, racking up over 156M TikTok views, 181k user-generated TikTok videos, 55M on-demand streams and 1M YouTube views, climbing to #3 on TikTok’s Country playlist and securing placement on viral-song charts. Seeing the incredible response, Schneider immediately went back to the writing room to finish the spit-fire track – “Ain’t Missin’ You.” Boasting wily lyrics and an electric hook, the feisty song finds the “Artist to Watch” (Amazon Music, Pandora, Taste of Country) continuing to “expand the bounds of his artistry” (American Songwriter) and lean into MusicRow’s “Next Big Thing” prediction.

There’s a reason Billboard named him “Country music’s next rising star.”

Continuing to strongly connect, having already amassed over 3.8M TikTok views, 26,000 filter creates, 5,000 user-generated TikTok videos and 7.3M on-demand streams, Schneider gave into fan-demand again with the sultry track “Bad Decisions.” Seduced by a magnetic connection with an ex, the seductive song follows a couple who just can’t help but give into temptation.

Filling out the rest of the EP, he delivers his most-vulnerable song to date with the autobiographical “Daddy Drinks Whiskey.” While the stadium-ready, supercharged anthem “Ruin This Town” showcases his “rapid-fire singing style” (Billboard), the live-in-the-moment reminder of ballad “Buy That Girl A Beer” puts his eclectic vocals and lyrical growth on full display. Finally, the insanely catchy, witty and vibrant groove of “Carhartt” flows with an unforgettable, anthemic beat about a girl who got away that’s sure to be his next viral song of summer.

“I want to write songs that tell stories, and that’s what I’m excited about,” he explains. “I feel like people are going to relate to it and feel connected that we’ve been through the same things – growing up, growing apart, heartbreak. I want to show where I’ve been and where my head is now, and that this new music is just a taste of what’s to come.”

Opener – MaRynn Taylor

Named one of CMTs “Next Women of Country” (2023), MaRynn Taylor — the promising star in the making with nearly 33 million cumulative streams and 12 Telly Awards under her belt — is a reflection of her generation. “I want people to hear my story and connect it to their story,” says MaRynn.

Country music’s fast-rising powerhouse vocalist coined an artist to watch in 2024 (CountryNow, Music Mayhem, Wide Open Country) is slated to release her self-reflective EP, Get To Know Me on May 31. MaRynn released the lively, folk-infused, “How It’s Gonna Go” (4/12), giving listeners a taste of what to expect from her forthcoming EP. Written by MaRynn Taylor, Josh Kerr, and Parker Welling, the confident new track is produced by GRAMMY-winning Kerr. Taylor’s March release, the flirty track, “Small Town Spinnin‘” (3/1), co-written by Taylor with Erin Kinsey and Kerr and produced by Kerr, finds the rising country star poking light-heartedly at how quickly news catches fire in a small town. MaRynn made her Grand Ole Opry debut on June 23, 2023, and returned to the coveted stage only weeks later for a second performance. Her January release, “Make You Mine (Acoustic)” (1/12) is the stripped-down version of her radio single, which earned Taylor her first career Top 50 hit on Country radio.

The acoustic track is written by Black River Publishing‘s Taylor, Kerr, and Dan Wilson, and produced by Kerr. “Make You Mineentered the Top 50 and Top 60 on both the Mediabase Country and Billboard Country Airplay charts respectively on October 2, 2023. With more than two million streams for the single, the “female powerhouse” (Country Now) is only heating up. MaRynn returned to Buffalo’s Highmark Stadium on Oct. 15 for her second anthem performance on the NFL field in 2023 and debuted at halftime during the Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants Sunday Night Football matchup on NBC. The rising star then sang the national anthems at the Buffalo Sabres game on Oct. 17, solidifying three professional sports appearances in less than 48 hours for MaRynn. “As an artist and human being, I want my music to inspire and be relatable,” says MaRynn. “Growing up with idols like Carrie and Taylor, I could relate to them. It was as if I could feel their heartaches in the music and as if the stories in their songs reflected mine. Today, that’s what I want to give to my fans.” MaRynn is excited to get out on the road and share these songs that are so close to her heart with fans and hear their personal stories, too. “I genuinely care about people and their feelings. I’m a good listener and want to be there for people. There’s not enough of that in the world right now.”

Today, MaRynn Taylor is no longer the little girl dreaming on the front porch; she is the voice ready to inspire a generation.
