“How do I help, if only two // Livin’ in your big glass house with the view // I thought you’d knowI had some help // It ain’t like I can make this kind of mess all by myself // Don’t act like you ain’t help me pull that bottle off the shelf // Been deep in every weekend, if you couldn’t tell // They say, “Teamwork makes the dream work” // Hell, I had some help (Help) // Help!”

“I Had Some Help” is an incredible cross-genre collaboration for Wallen and Post Malone! We are excited to see the song gain traction with fans and to see how it performs at country radio. Make sure to listen to this one!

Who is Walker County? The Story Behind Their Journey to Country Music

Who is Walker County? The singer-songwriting duo joined us to chat about their journey to country music. Get to know the rising stars here…

Quick Facts:

Full Names – Ivy Dene Potter & Sophie Dawn Walker
Birthdates – April 10 (Ivy Dene)  & March 19 (Sophie Dawn)
Hometown – Sulphur Springs, IN
Current City – Nashville, Tennessee
Musical Influences – Dolly Parton, The Chicks, Miranda Lambert, John Prine
Current Single – “The Thing About Fences”  // as of date of article: 5/6/2024

The Beginning:

Today’s spotlight shines on incredible sister-duo, Walker County. Walker County, comprised of Ivey Dene Potter and Sophie Dawn Walker are a force to be reckoned with in country music right now. We chatted with the songstresses’ about their path towards music, their new independent project, and everything in between.

“We grew up in a town of 390 people, and we only had each other to write with,” began the Indiana natives. “We started playing music together when we were 9 and 12, and we started to play music with our dad, Billy Walker. He was a big influence. He played bluegrass all our childhood and played for a church band.”

As soon as their father realized they could sing, he invited them to pursue their gifts. “We just learned a love for all music really early on, so when it was time for us to do our own thing, we loved our bluegrass. […] I remember the first song that we got to cover that we chose was “Red High Heels” by Kellie Pickler. We definitely looked up to those female artists,” shared the singers who found inspiration in many different genres of music. “Our dad grew up playing bluegrass, but he also would play every genre of music in the house. We listened to anything and everything.”

Armed with a passion, the duo took a trip with their family to Nashville in 2007. “We opened up the guitar case, and street performed for a little bit,” shared Walker County. Adding, “We went back down and played for like an hour and a half, and made $200 bucks, and I thought we were rich of course, and we went to the mall after […]. We ended up going back to Indiana, and started to play wherever we could, fairs and festivals, and that really took over our lives. We started playing every weekend, all through 2014, until we made the move to Nashville, and we’ve been in town ever since.”

The Turning Point:

Walker County continued to hone their talents and their storytelling through their upbringing. Eventually, at just nineteen and sixteen years old, the singer-songwriters made the move to Nashville, Tennessee to further their careers.

“We moved to Nashville with a record deal at nineteen and sixteen. We moved to town with the idea that in the next two years we would have music, and that just didn’t happen. That season of our lives, we had a lot of growing to do and learning the ins and outs of the music industry, some of it heartbreaking and some of it exciting,” shared the singers, as they reflected on their journey.

While in Nashville, they spent years writing and cultivating their sound. “Nashville was definitely a writer’s bootcamp for the first two years we lived here.” Despite continuing to write music almost daily, Walker County was not getting the opportunity they wanted to put out all the music they were creating.

This led to the women finally deciding to bet on themselves. “It was just a season in our lives that needed to happen, but we had been there for nine years, and last year at Sophie’s birthday dinner, we were sitting with a friend of ours, a singer-songwriter named Paul Sikes, and we were just sitting there pouring out our frustration of not being able to release the music we want and having this catalog of songs that we’ve been dying to put out to the world, and just not getting the opportunity to, and that’s when Paul was like “girls, let me produce this record. Let’s put out every song that we always wanted to put out. We don’t need the record label to do this, we can do this on our own.”

Walker County went on to do just that and took a leap of faith.

Today:

That leap of faith culminated in Walker County finally releasing their debut album, Painted Ponies. The eleven song project features songs like “The Thing About Fences,” “Handwritten,” and the title track. Each of the songs speak to their incredible songwriting prowess, their knack for crafting a relatable song, and of course, their journey thus far as they navigate the windy road that is the music industry.

“I think there’s a song on this album from every year we’ve been in town. It’s really cool, because it definitely tells our journey and our story in the music industry,” shared the singers. “We really didn’t have any rules while picking this album, which was so freeing. […] We really wanted this album to be one that you listen to from start to finish, and for it really to tell a story. It’s evident that we had a good time making this album.”

The record is a true embodiment of what happens in music when there are no boundaries. “We just sat and listened through the songs, and we wanted the record to make sense, but we didn’t want to be held back by how many tempos we had on it, how many ballads, what this song meant, we just wanted it to live with the songs in it. No rules, no fences. We just wrote down our favorites, and I think the songs that stuck out were the songs we knew the day we wrote them that they were going to special songs.”

Fans can look forward to even more music from Walker County coming out hopefully this year. The ladies will also be playing at fairs and festivals this season, as well as, heading back to CMA Fest. For a full list of shows, head to their website here.

While the singer is happily married, he manages to tap into the pain and emotions that are all too relatable, when going through heartbreak.

“My whole world’s been a seven mile stretch // Kicking up dreams in the dust // Round here, that’s about as far as you can get // But tonight I’m all gassed up // I’ve saved up every dead end dollar // I’ve got a truck that’ll fly // There ain’t a street there I ain’t been down and it’s got me feeling like // I gotta get out of this town”

“Get Out Of This Town” only ups the ante for Cartwright and his talent. We are excited to see what he has coming down the pipeline next!

Who is Eli Winders? The Story Behind His Journey to Country Music

Who is Eli Winders? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about his journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…

who-is-eli-winders

Quick Facts:

Full Name – Eli Winders
Birthdate – 05/29/2004
Hometown – Pikeville, North Carolina
Current City – Nashville, Tennessee
Musical Influences – Sturgill Simpson, Eric Church, ERNEST, Keith Whitley
Label – Atlantic Records/Bad Realm Records
Current Single – “Two Wheel Drive Cowboy” // as of date of article: 4/29/2024

The Beginning:

The country music genre is buzzing with so many incredible artists including newcomers on the scene. Singer-songwriter, Eli Winders, a newcomer in country music, is an artist we are excited about! We chatted with the singer about his music, his record deal, and how he continues to grow his fanbase. Keep reading to learn more about his story and to say you were a day one fan!

“I’m from North Carolina in a little town called Pikeville. I grew up within five miles of every bit of my family,” began Winders. “We lived out in the country and we didn’t have cable growing up or an Xbox or any of that until I was like fourteen, fifteen, so we spent a lot of time playing outside with my cousins and friends. Life was just a lot of time doing stuff like that. I think that definitely played a role in playing music. I didn’t have a phone either when I started playing guitar, and I started learning guitar when I was about fourteen.”

As a teenager, Winders fell in love with music. He recalls listening to classic rock and bluegrass music throughout his upbringing, thanks to his parents. He showed off his love of music first through guitar “Once I started playing guitar, I didn’t know I could sing, so I just wanted to play lead guitar and play rock riffs, and join a band at some point. Then eventually, I started trying to sing a bit, and I stuck with that. Then I found my way getting into country music a little bit,” he shared. Adding, “It was going back to the Avett Brothers, Luke Combs, and Thomas Rhett, and then I found out about Tyler Childers and deep dove into that whole world of country music, and I absolutely fell in love with it. Around that same time, I wrote my first song and it was super cheesy, but I fell in love with it, and just kept going.”

The Turning Point:

Throughout high school, Winders kept playing music. Upon graduating, he began working at a feed-mill, while simultaneously taking night classes and starting to post original songs on social media. “After night classes, I would go home, and go online and post a video every single day [on social media],” shared the singer. “Then that took off a little bit, and started to get some attention from people in the music industry. That led to a record deal with Atlantic Records, and I started to work with management over at C3, and eventually left the feed mill. I moved out here to Nashville, and I’ve been writing songs since.”

While in class one day, Winders received a DM on Instagram from his now A&R representative at Atlantic Records, and his life shifted on its axis. After meeting with his now team in New York City, he eventually went to Los Angeles to sign his record deal with Atlantic Records and made the move to Nashville in May of 2023.

“I had no idea that [my social media videos] would reach people in the music industry. My intention was to post videos and post original songs to kind of grow a fanbase, and go play shows,” humbly shared Winders. “I’m so thankful for the opportunity I was given to just write songs everyday and to go play shows out on the road. It’s truly a dream come true being able to do this.”

Today:

Flash forward to today, Winders is cranking out music that fans are falling in love with. His songs, “Pack My Hometown” and “Carolina Blue” already caught the attention of tons of country music fans for their honest and relatable lyrics. Now, the singer is gearing up to release even more music.

Most recently, Winders released a stage-ready song called, “Two Wheel Drive Cowboy.” “When I moved to town, I started hanging out with some people, and a guy who’s not a songwriter was like “hey I have this cool idea. I think it would be a good song title.” I immediately thought it was awesome, and I threw it out in a few co-writes, and nobody took it, and then eventually I found some people that wanted to write it with me, and it came out exactly how I imagined it,” shared the singer when asked about the song.

“Two Wheel Drive Cowboy” is the type of song that is made to be played live. It is fun, energetic, and still has the heart and grit that Winders’ previous releases have. “It’s just a super fun one to play with the band. With all the shows we’re starting to do, I wanted to move more in that direction of a more fun song that’s going to get the crowd moving a bit more than “Pack My Hometown” and “Carolina Blue.” I thought it was a good one to just try out first in that sound space.”

As 2024 continues, fans can expect more music from Winders, as he continues to tease incredible songs on his social media. For tickets to live shows, head to his website here! “I’m hoping this year to play as many shows as possible and to just say yes to everything I can. We have so much more music coming out. I spent all of May to December just writing, so we have so much music to put out.”
