Koe Wetzel and a group of East Texas boys came together in 2011. By 2015 they had an instant hit album, Out on Parole. This album created something fans could tap their boots to or reminisce about their small hometown that never seems to change. The fiddle licks and guitar riffs combined with Wetzel's smooth, energetic vocals bring a new sound to "Texas Rock 'n' Roll." Koe Wetzel plans to release their new album Noise Complaint on August 18th. For more information check out their social media accounts.

Muscadine Bloodline

Unapologetically Alabama. There’s a new force making major waves in country music. Natives of Mobile Alabama, Gary Stanton and Charlie Muncaster came together to form Muscadine Bloodline in early 2016. With three single releases under their belt and a schedule full of shows spanning from coast to coast, they’ve hit the ground running from day 1. Nashville took notice the first time these two stepped on the stage and it’s no surprise the rest of the music world is quickly catching on. Charlie’s [contemporary] vocals complimented by Gary’s harmonies and masterful guitar licks, MB is a powerfully refreshing mix of talent, passion and unfiltered authenticity. Infamously undaunted by the big stage, their sound intertwines the brash irreverence of early southern rockers with the seductive quality of 90s country love songs. Captivating hooks heard in songs like “Porch Swing Angel” and the aggressively anthemic “Shut Your Mouth” stand as a testament to MB’s wide ranging music-making capability. Every song and every show is a moving experience but at the same time, unmistakably Muscadine Bloodline.

Charlie Muncaster

Charlie Muncaster is a Mobile, Alabama native who first discovered his soulful voice when he was young. He began performing in choirs at 12 years old, where he gained his passion for music. Charlie received his first guitar at 14 years old and began performing as a solo musician in his early teens. During his choir career, Charlie performed in the Alabama All-State Choir from seventh to twelfth grade. He continued his musical pursuits after he relocated to Auburn, Alabama. While in Auburn, he started “The Charlie Muncaster Band” and also continued performing as a solo act at watering holes across Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi. During his solo career, he released his first EP titled “Alabama Summer Night” in June, 2015. His talent has earned him opening spots for acts such as: Brad Paisley, The Cadillac Three, Cole Swindell, Corey Smith, Rhett Atkins, The Band Perry, Jana Kramer, and Blackberry Smoke. Charlie relocated to Nashville in October of 2015, and has since focused on his duo career with Gary Stanton, as Muscadine Bloodline.

Gary Stanton

Gary Stanton was born and raised in Mobile, AL, where he picked up a guitar for the first time at 8 years old. Gary got his feet wet by singing and playing in various church groups, where he became comfortable on the stage. From fronting a hard rock band to being an aspiring rapper, Gary became versatile with different genres of music. It wasn’t until his late teens that Gary fell in love with country music. In the Fall of 2011, Gary moved to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to attend the University of Southern Mississippi, where he majored in Entertainment Industry Management. Gary had always planned to move to Nashville to work in the Music Industry, but it wasn’t until he wrote a song that went viral on Facebook, he knew that he wanted to be a songwriter. In the Spring of 2013, Stanton released his debut EP titled “The American Dream”, and shortly after he formed an original outfit called “Somethin’ Sweet”. The band started out playing small local bars, Fraternity gigs, and various markets in Mississippi. During his “Somethin’ Sweet” career, Gary shared the stage with artists such as: Chris Knight, Bucky Covington, Joe Diffie, Corey Smith, Keith Anderson, American Aquarium, Kris Allen, and Benjy Davis. After graduating, Gary made the move to “Music City”, where he is now trying to make his dream a reality with Charlie Muncaster, as Muscadine Bloodline.
The Dirty River Boys
The Dirty River Boys
The Dirty River Boys are paving their own road as they travel it. They are a testament to the idea that "if you can dream it, you can do it," moving with determination ever closer to the light. Above all is their belief in their music. It motivates them and provides exultation for each member, as well as for the audiences who have become fans by the force field the band creates in live performance.
Steely intention aside, there is a magic to being in the right place with the right stuff at the right time. Home in El Paso, the Dirty River Boys yearned to make music the centerpiece of their lives. Then they played their very first Austin gig, a happy hour set at hipster haunt, Lustre Pearl. The music they presented was energetic and infectious, though stripped down acoustic. The joy was unmistakable. And a new path with exciting possibilities was being born. The band migrated to Austin shortly thereafter, where they thrive amidst the other musicians in town, and love the strong sense of community they found. "Being in Austin, with so many great bands, it makes you up your game."
Travis Stearns and Nino Cooper met in the music scene in El Paso. They started gigging every once in a while, while they waited patiently for the day they could dedicate themselves to music 24/7. The Dirty River Boys trio formed 3 years ago, when Marco Gutierrez quit his job and school to join the band. "We had to go against full bands in El Paso, us with three people with acoustic instruments. It shows if you are consistent and serious about your music, you can really make it. We put our hearts out there every night. People see that." They added an upright bass player about a year and a half ago. Colton James joined for a 90 minute set at the River Road Icehouse. It was a trial by fire and a foursome was forged.
The new album, Science Of Flight, was recorded at Yellow Dog Studio in South Austin, Texas. Marco, Nino, Travis and CJ put aside just five days for the process. They played everything on the album themselves, only tapping on the legendary Kim Deschamps to lay down pedal steel. Expect surprises; Wurlitzer, marching drum sounds, train whistles, a rattlesnake. The band was mindful of their ability to recreate the sounds on stage in the live environment. The Dirty River Boys are seemingly always on the road, having logged 200,000 miles in the van, though thankfully, the rattlesnake is not a traveling companion.
Science of Flight has been described by The Dirty River Boys as Western, Fat, and Rock and Roll. It touches on myriad emotions with gentle harmonies that shimmer with beauty, acoustic rave-ups, and hook driven tunes. "This time, we made a record. We build it, recording the parts ourselves. This is a band record. We are really excited about it."
