In the 2nd episode of Down in the 903, Myzta Hamblen talks with FASTBash winner Jae Money Guapo about his influences, his sound and his goals for the future!!

(Courtesy of https://www.jmguapoo.com/)

Jae Money Guapoo was born December 11, 1989 in Longview, Texas as James Ryan Campbell III. The Hip-Hop artist, Guapoo started performing on the church stage at the age of six years old as a drummer and tenor voice in the choir. The experience gained sparked his passion to perform on the big stages as a Hip-Hop artist, and continues to keep him relaxed when he performs today. Guapoo grew up as an athlete and had to hide his music artistry. His mother had no tolerance for the Hip-Hop music and culture presented, which lead to her strict actions banning Guapoo from listening to the music that truly inspired his artistry.

I was born and raised in the Piney Woods of deep East Texas. I grew up with my younger brother and two parents who loved us. I loved playing sports but I loved hunting and fishing even more. Growing up I wore out a lot of boots, waders, fishing reels, and truck tires hunting deer at my family’s ranch, ducks in the sloughs, and fishing with my buddies. I don’t know how you can ask for much more than that…

Fresh off the news of his current single “Unbroken Horses” going number 1 in Texas, Jerrod not only plays the song but tells the story how the song, written by songwriting icon Dean Dillon, was pitched to him. We also discuss his unique style and why he decided to wear pinstriped suits to ever show! Tune in for a great conversation AND 2 original songs from Jerrod Medulla!!

(Courtesy of http://www.jerrodmedulla.com/)

A man hailing from Abilene was about to slide into town and seduce Texas music faithfuls with a sultry, sophisticated sound that flirts with genres like Adult Contemporary, Roots and Americana – all while wearing a pinstripe suit and a devilish grin.

It was heartbreak that led Jerrod Medulla to music, and the guitar that satisfied that dull, lonely ache only the end of a first love could cause. But once he found that riffs, slides and solos could heal just about anything, his true first love was born and there was no looking back.

Heading out of one of the gateways to the Texas Hill Country, Dripping Springs, the band decided to embrace their surroundings by incorporating the famous tourist destination into their band name.

In Episode 272 today on The ETX ROCKS Show, we talk to Whey Jennings, grandson of Country Music Icon Waylon Jennings! In a candid conversation with Whey, we chat about his upbringing in music royalty, his own unique sound, the state of music today and much more! Tune in for a great conversation AND 3 original songs from Whey Jennings!!

(Courtesy of https://www.wheyjennings.com/)

Whey Jennings grew up in a family full of country music royalty.  His grandfather, the legendary Waylon Jennings and grandmother Jessi Colter both had major success in the major music charts for decades.

Whey Jennings is a "rough around the edges, unpolished singer" with a voice as big as Texas.  He couldn't go pop with a mouth full of crackers! 

Whey Aaron Jennings is the oldest son of his mother Katherine and father Terry Jennings.  Whey has always had a deep love for music since the first time he stepped foot on stage. 

Whey was just a boy at one of his grandpa Waylon's shows. His grandma Jessi had just left the stage after singing "Storms Never Last." Jessi left the stage and laid her microphone on a chair backstage. Young Whey picked up the microphone and pranced out onto the stage and began singing "Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys." 

Whey's grandpa Waylon shouted out "Hey hold up there Hoss...wait for me!"   Waylon went to pickin and when the song was finished the crowd went nuts. It was on that day that Whey fell in love with music and as the say... the rest is history.

In Episode 268 today on The ETX ROCKS Show, we talk to Conway, AR native Erin Enderlin! In the art of songwriting, Erin Enderlin is Picasso! Lyrically powerful, melodically beautiful, Erin has long been one of the best songwriters around! She has just recently won Album and Songwriter of the Year at The Arkansas Country Music Awards and her 2017 release "Whiskeytown Crier" is easily one of the best albums to be released of any genre in years! Tune in for a great conversation AND 2 original songs from Erin Enderlin!!

(Courtesy of http://www.erinenderlin.com/)

When Erin Enderlin writes a song, more is born than melody and rhyme. Women and men leap from her music, as fully formed and real as we are, all blood and sweat, living, loving, killing, and dying. 

“I love story songs,” Enderlin says from her home in Nashville. “It’s amazing to me how in just three minutes, you can create a whole character who wasn’t there before that you can really see and even understand.” 

Enderlin has taken that love of story songs and upped the ante: her new album Whiskeytown Crier puts all the sad souls she’s grown so fond of singing and writing about in the same small, fictional city––Whiskeytown. She explains that the second half of the title is a nod to “a newspaper and the old town criers that used to deliver the news.” Over forlorn steel and haunting fiddle, the town’s secrets are exposed, sometimes with a sense of foreboding that nods to the Louvin Brothers, other times with an empathetic sadness that recalls Reba singing “Fancy.”
