Opening the show is Austin Hanks, a country rock and rootsy blues player who has traveled all over the world playing dates with big bands like Blues Traveler, Black Crowes, ZZ Top, Jack Ingram, Gary Allen, Allman Brothers, Trace Atkins, Ted Nugent, Bad Company, and many more.
In the last 3 years, Hanks has opened over 40 shows for Lynyrd Skynyrd. T.V. hit show “Sons of Anarchy” recently used six of Hank’s songs and he recently penned the first single on the soon to be released Rick Rubin-produced, brand new ZZ Top album due out in this summer.
Matt Stillwell is best known as a performer with a rowdy sense of fun, and that side of him is in full flower on his newest CD, Shine Deluxe. Its gem is “Shine,” an anthem to the joys of the Mason jar and the moonshine produced in places like Matt’s beloved western North Carolina. Shine Deluxe showcases a performer who can be rowdy and side-splittingly funny as well as passionately engaging, who can get an audience laughing, crying and singing along, and for whom music is simply an extension of his personality. “My shows are pretty big parties,” he says, flashing his trademark grin. “But I also have a lot of serious songs and a lot of storytelling I do.”
Headlining the night, D. Vincent Williams is an unsung hero of the Nashville music scene with undeniable talent and years of performing experience. Over the course of his remarkable songwriting career, Williams has landed cuts on albums that have sold more than 15 million copies, recorded by esteemed artists including Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, Ronnie Milsap, Jason Aldean, and Lee Ann Womack.
“I didn’t choose songwriting, it chose me,” says Williams.
Bigger Picture Group has slated D. Vincent Williams for an album release this year, which will feature self-penned future classics “Seventeen” and “Those Wings” as well as “Down By The River and “Plain And Simple” and will showcase Williams’ soulful sound and piano prowess.
