Doors open at 6pm. Shows start at 7pm. Admission is free!
Please join us for the production of three new “StudioAmped” shows featuring local country music artists and Nashville songwriters:
Tony-Ray Thompson | Mon, Aug 5
Thompson says his singing and songwriting style is influenced by artists such as Eric Church, Alan Jackson and The Highwaymen super group of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. His versatility in performing country, blues and Southern rock has made him a sought-after act on the Gulf Coast.
The BeachBilly’s | Tues, Aug 6
T-Bone Montgomery formed The BeachBilly’s with accomplished local musicians Dave Caluger, James Daniels and Mark Sherrill. Montgomery was born in Muscle Shoals, Ala. and comes from a long line of songwriters, including his uncle, Peanutt Montgomery, who wrote hit songs for George Jones. Sherrill has written songs cut by Jones, Kenny Rogers, Johnny Cash, Tanya Tucker and Blake Shelton. He received the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written” achievement award for “Ole Red,” co-written with Don Goodman and James Bohon and recorded by Shelton.

In honor of the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival’s 35th anniversary and in conjunction with the fall release of Ken Burns’ “Country Music” film series on PBS, WSRE is producing a songwriters special featuring singer-songwriters from the festival’s storied history.
