About The Event

Good things come to those who wait, but luck favours the bold. And for Jeremy McComb, the balance comes natural. A storyteller epitomizing “been there and done that,” McComb has explored nearly every facet of the entertainment industry, all on his own terms. From radio to tour managing, releasing five albums, growing an international fan base, hitting the Billboard charts and writing songs for projects selling over 6 Million copies … including a Grammy-nominated soundtrack (Blue Collar Comedy Tour – One for the Road).

Proudly and fiercely independent in both spirit and style, Jeremy was born in Idaho as a sixth-generation musician. Music is in McComb’s DNA but he’s a distinct branch on the family tree. Obsessed with artists who share a gift for storytelling (and little else), he found inspiration in everything from Jim Croce to Tom Petty, and now bridges the canyons between country, rock and folk. McComb discovered a revelation during the last eighteen months of uncertainty and the effects of it became an influence for the songwriter. Like the rest of us, the constant state of chaos and complications led him to look back to a time when things were simpler.

Written songs on projects selling OVER 6 MILLION units. Songs recorded by country stars like Tracy Lawrence with movie and comedy soundtracks including a Grammy nominated, (Triple platinum) Movie Soundtrack. (Blue Collar Comedy Tour “One for the Road” )

Dan Smalley may just now be making a name for himself, but he already sings with the voice of experience. And he’s got the bullet scars to prove it. The Alaska native who came of age in Shreveport, Louisiana, sings his confessional, soul-baring songs with deep conviction. Smalley expresses a fresh take on Country music that knows tradition, inspired by the greats of the genre and infused with the swampy sounds of his roots, the Gospel of hardwood church pews and the impassioned delivery of R&B. Artists like Merle Haggard, Ray Charles, Al Green and Willie Nelson provided a musical roadmap for Smalley to follow, and the against-the-grain success of Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson drew him to Nashville. There, he began working with producer Keith Stegall, known for his award-winning work with greats like Alan Jackson, George Jones and Zac Brown Band.

Ashley McBryde (Grammy Nominated album “Never Will”) Trace Adkins, Ray Fultcher, Randall King, Makayla Lynn, Dillon Carmichael and others have included Smalley co-writes on their recent albums.

Smalley’s experience and command on stage has landed him on bills alongside Willie Nelson, Allison Kraus, Turnpike Troubadours, Ashley McBryde, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Eli Young Band, Justin Moore, Dwight Yoakam, Randy Rogers Band and a list of notable others.

An 8 time British Country Music Association Awards winner, Northern Irishman Gary Quinn has become one of UK Country music’s more established performers. Quinn has opened for the CMA Songwriters Series, toured with Phil Vassar and William Michael Morgan and shared the stage with acts such as Kristian Bush, Sarah Darling and hall of fame songwriter Bob DiPiero. An accomplished performer, Quinn is just as comfortable with a pen in his hand and has collaborated with Grand Ole Opry member and Grammy winner Steve Wariner as well as Brett James, Trent Tomlinson, Jenn Bostic and J.P Williams.

Quinn has numerous No.1 singles on the UK Country Charts as well as being championed by Ty Bentli (Ty Bentli Show, Apple Music) and Country Line Radio. Quinn has also featured on Apple Music's 'Today's Country', 'New in Country' and 'Country Wide' as well as on Spotify's 'Wild Country', 'Next from Nashville', 'New Music Nashville', 'Nashville Stripped and 'Fresh Finds Country' playlists.

A successful tour of Denmark in February and a UK Summer full of festival dates, Quinn and his band have performed at some of Europe’s most prestigious country festivals including ‘Country2Country’ in London on numerous occasions, C2C Berlin, The Long Road Festival and Manchester’s ‘Buckle & Boots’ as well as festivals the length and breadth of the UK and Europe. Gary toured the Gold Coast of Australia in 2019 culminating in a performance on the Toyota Stage at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Additional to his live appearances has also appear on Phil Vassar’s ‘Songs From The Cellar’ TV show recorded live from Phil’s home in Tennessee.

A regular performer at the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival, he has performed alongside Nashville recording artists Carlene Carter, John Brannen and Nanci Griffith as well as opening for a CMA Songwriter Series show that included Clint Black and Bill Anderson. Quinn is also no stranger to performing in Nashville having played the CMA Music Fest, the CMA Global Artist Party and iconic venues The Bluebird Cafe and The Stage on Broadway.
