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.”

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

She’s not exactly a rebel, but with her musical mashup of Waylon, Skynyrd, and Janis Joplin, you could be forgiven for thinking she is. In reality, Texas singer/songwriter Briana Adams is a sweet-natured Southern crooner that really just wants to share her music with the world.

Her songs are a honky tonk acid trip of classic dancehall and 70’s outlaw country rolled into a tight-knit package, all headlined by a big Texas voice and an unmistakable style that’s all her own. And if you catch a little twist of blues and rock’n’ roll in the vocal, that’s not by accident. Growing up in a small Texas town like Winchester, that’s the way country music is done!

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

The Buffalo Ruckus’ music has been described as a compendium of roots, Americana, southern soul, psychedelic postmodern avant-garde and experimental country-fried rock. The songwriting is pure and soulful with stories of heritage, spirituality, redemption, love gained and love lost. Spun from the timbers of heart and soul, the Ruckus took its first musical breath in the middle of 2013. They quickly gained public attention after winning both the 2014 Texas Music Showdown and 2014 Shiner Rising Star competitions. The band has quickly spread its musical wings and taken its heavy soul-fueled sound through Texas, Georgia, New York and the Midwest.

There was no debate after that night if they wanted to pursue music as a career, rather than just entertaining family and friends.

Jeff Jacobs Band interests a wide variety of fans. “We appeal to people who listen to country and even some that regularly don’t. People tell us all the time that we don’t sound like anyone else,” and this is a natural reaction to Jeff, as he puts it, “because every song speaks to those who listen.” This individuality has earned them notice at every venue, and there is a common response. “We’ll play a set and take a break and fans come up and say ‘Where the hell have you been!’ like we’ve been hiding in plain sight,” chuckles Jeff.

In Episode 262 today on The ETX ROCKS Show, we talk to Houston, Tx native Madison Paige! Madison stops by and discusses her dream of being a performer, her songwriting, her bigger than life personality and why she feels so strongly about using her platform to speak out against bullying! Tune in for a great conversation AND 3 original songs from Madison Paige!!

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

From her blonde hair and blue eyes to her voice and heart that are bigger than Texas, she belts out her "sass" and her "independence".  This Texas girl does it all on her own. She has a soft, classic, and vintage sound to her voice as well as, conveying energy, dynamics, and confidence in every performance. 

She tells the stories of her own personal experiences. Whether that is the heartbreaks from the man in November or the message to "Stand Tall" against the bullies in our day-to-day lives. She portrays her experiences in songs that her family, friends, and fans can enjoy and relate too. Her music is a cross between Leann Rimes and Patsy Cline on one end and to Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert on the other. Her confidence along with the sass gives her the attitude to enjoy herself on stage as well as, entertain her audience.  Her voice has a natural break in it that is a refreshing version of the young Leann Rimes.  Yet, she has the powerful and strong voice of Carrie Underwood and gets told often how much she sounds like Miranda Lambert.

Thanks for checking out the 259th episode of The ETX ROCKS Show! Today, our host Boston Chris talks to Jackson Taylor of Jackson Taylor & The Sinners about his iconic career, the unique way he writes songs and his formula for getting heard! Known as one of the pioneers of Red Dirt and Outlaw Country, it's a huge treat to present this candid conversation to everyone!

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

When you’re immortalized in a song written by the likes of Billy Joe Shaver, and recorded by Billy Joe and Willie Nelson, there really is not much more to say than a few facts…

Since 2001 Jackson Taylor has been one of the most prolific songwriters and recording artists of any genres of music, with over a dozen CD’s and multiple times on Billboard’s Top 100 list. All without record companies, management, booking agents, or publicists. Jackson Taylor personifies true independence.

Born the youngest son to a migrant farm worker, Jackson spent his youth living the modern equivalent of Steinbeck’s, “Grapes of Wrath.” With a background much more akin to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, than his contemporaries. Jackson’s music reflects his adolescence of hard labor and poverty. Growing up working and living in the California, Washington, and Montana fruit ranches. Jackson’s musical influence crosses many boundaries. He has recorded with red dirt legend Jason Boland, and Austin Texas legend Dale Watson. Jonny Two Bags, the lead guitarist of Southern California’s punk innovators and royalty, Social Distortion. As well as rockabilly troubadour Lucky Tubb, and south Texas rockers the Pear Rats. He has shared the stage with everyone from Lynnrd Skynnrd and The Black Crowes, to Willie Nelson and Billy Joe Shaver. Much of Jackson’s career early on was marred by excessive drugs and alcohol, and violent outbursts. Cementing his image as a wild and out of control artist. Leading him to being blacklisted from many venues across the country and internationally.

Thanks for checking out the 258th episode of The ETX ROCKS Show! Today, our host Boston Chris talks with the 2018 New Female Vocalist of the Year from The TRRMA's! Julia Hatfield talks about her songwriting, how she balances her creativity with running a brand and her new project she will be working on soon! Tune in as Julia shares 3 original songs and some great insight into the workings of her career!

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

Meet Julia Hatfield - a Texas born singer-songwriter who is forging her own retro sound in modern country music.

Already having four top fifty singles to TX/Red Dirt Radio, over one hundred acoustic performances per year, and five years of solo performances already under her belt, you can bet this is one twenty year old you want to get to know.

Like many others, Julia’s love for music was evident from a young age as she began playing piano at six years old and later starting to write and play guitar at thirteen.

Having been raised on a wide variety of music, Hatfield’s dynamic sound has been inspired by artists ranging from Alan Jackson to Michael Jackson and that sound certainly shines through in her performances.

Hatfield has entertained audiences with her unique style all the way from California to Tennessee, and of course, the great state of Texas.

Recently being awarded 2018’s New Female Vocalist of the Year at the Texas Regional Radio Music Awards, Hatfield is making quite the statement in country music at a young age.
