THE LACS
The LACS—short for Loud Ass Crackers—have a proven formula for success. Mix 65 percent country music storytelling with 20 percent hip-hop attitude, add in 15 percent rock ‘n’ roll plus 100 percent hard work and you have a multi-format duo that defies definition and oozes opportunity. The duo, which is made up of hip-hop artist Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe and lead vocalist/guitarist Brian “Rooster” King, doesn’t easily fit into any predetermined box and that’s exactly why The LACS unique blend of music appeals to America’s iPod generation. “We might have 10 country, 10 rock and 10 rap songs. We knew our kind of people would like it.”

ANTHONY ORIO
Anthony’s new EP, Undeniable debuted at #14 on the iTunes Country Chart. It is Orio’s first release since his two SiriusXM singles “Those Nights, These Days” and “Walkin’ On Whiskey.” The EP features five original songs written by Orio and a funk infused version of the Rolling Stones tune “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” The upbeat title track (listen below), co-written with Christopher Griffiths and Josh Paige, has been released as a single to Country radio. An accompanying music video – his first – hit airwaves in early November. “Undeniable is the most ‘me’ thing I’ve ever done,” said Anthony. “Five years ago I started calling my brand of country ‘Motown Country.’ With a trio of Detroit boys behind me we finally brought that blend of Country, Motown and Philly soul from the stage to the studio on this EP.” Undeniable also debuted in the top 100 on the iTunes All Genres Chart.

LEE ROY PARNELL
Lee Roy Parnell is part of a long line of Texas roots-music eclectics and is among the elite few who can be identified as a triple threat. An ace guitarist, as well as a distinctive singer, and hit songwriter, his music runs the gamut of diversity. Combining the influences of Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, and Gospel, Parnell’s sound defies conventional classification. He draws from a broad range of musical sources and combines them with seamless dexterity and, unlike many other hard-to-pigeonhole artists, Parnell has enjoyed a run of success on the country and blues charts.

JD MCPHERSON W/CHARLEY CROCKETT
You could mistake JD McPherson for a revivalist, given how few other contemporary artists are likely to assert, as he boldly does, that “’Keep a Knockin’ by Little Richard is the best record ever made. But in a very real sense, McPherson is much more a pioneer than roots resuscitator. He’s knocking at the door of something that arguably hasn’t yet been accomplished—a spirited, almost spiritual hybrid that brings the forgotten lessons from the earliest days of rock & roll into a future that has room for the modernities of studio technique and 21st century singer/songwriter idiosyncrasies that Richard Penniman would not recognize.

THE HUMMINGBIRD
