Sean McConnell 

Sean McConnell’s infatuation with music began at an early age when he would watch his parents perform on stage. Now, McConnell is out performing his own songs in various venues across the United States. His music doesn’t really have a genre, it’s just music that is good on the ears and soothes the soul. I first heard of him about four years ago, I was listening to a Brantley Gilbert cover of “Lie Baby Lie” and someone said, “If you think that’s good, you should listen to the songwriter.” So, I then looked…

Nashville has been taken over by the “hop in my truck, let me take you down a back road” music for quite some time now. It’s rather refreshing to see a husband and wife making waves. That’s just what Allison and Zach Laughlin, of the duo Laughlin, are doing in Athens, Georgia.

Mike Dekle or Uncle Mike; to those enough lucky enough to know him, has this rare talent. Every song of his that I have listened to has kept me focused on the story and I haven’t found one yet that I haven’t liked.

In 1983, Kenny Rogers released a song written by Mike Dekle, “Scarlet Fever”. The song peaked at…

Mitch Rossell 

These days there are a lot of artists trying to make their big break in Nashville. Some go and bust their butts playing in honkytonks downtown while others get on social media and post their music to YouTube and if someone happens to come across their music they both subscribe and continue to listen to the artist as they post videos week by week. Seven years ago, I came across a young man by the name of Mitch Rossell. At that time he was posting covers of Keith Urban, Eric Church and many other artists,…
