Born and raised in Maypearl, Texas, country music singer/songwriter Bart Crow is gearing up for 2018 with new music & even more shows! Bart made his first attempts to write songs while in the United States Army and started first performing live while studying at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX. Perhaps the most significant milestone in his past involved moving with his wife Brooke to Austin, where they worked tirelessly to establish as Bart an artist.
Crow has put together an impressive track record as a recording artist, having lofted six No. 1 singles onto the Texas Music Chart – one of which, “Wear My Ring,” sold over 165,000 copies. He has sold over 40,000 albums, released five self-co-produced records in just over a decade, including Dandelion , which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard ‘s Heatseekers South Central chart. He’s been cheered in Country Weekly , on CMT, and one of Rolling Stones “artists you need to know”. His YouTube videos and concert footage have drawn more than 5.7 million views.
He is also a dedicated husband and father with a passion for supporting Veterans. “Being a Veteran I will always pay homage to our brothers & sisters who heed the call to volunteer & preserve our peace & freedom....”. Crow displays this in his self-penned song “Broken” from 2008’s album “Heartworn Tragedy”.
Bart’s single, “Life Comes At You Fast,” released in 2015 led to his sixth album release “The Parade”. Consisting of 12 songs, produced by Justin Pollard at Brown Recluse Studio, Crow felt this album is “a great representation for where I am now as a songwriter/performer.” The year 2017 for Crow was a year to broaden his horizons, spread his latest release to new ears and expand his craft by traveling to some new countries including several countries across Europe . He recently partnered with True Grit Talent Agency, owned and operated by Arthur Penhallow JR. formerly of Punch Enterprises and C3 Management. The True Grit roster includes Cody Jinks, Sunny Sweeney, Whitey Morgan, Ward Davis & many more noteworthy acts.
2018 is already looking like a busy year for Bart with tours booked across the country and many more to be released along the way. He will be heading back into the studio to begin working on his next project this year.
Mickey Lamantia is an American Country Singer/Songwriter from Cranston, Rhode Island. His style of music falls within the subgenre of Outlaw Country and he is considered a traditional country purist both lyrically and musically. He has been a Rhode Island state correctional officer for 20 years and has two children with his wife, Amanda. He is the youngest of five children and is known for using his perspective as a prison guard to pen many of his songs. Coming from blue-collar, Christian roots, Lamantia’s father worked heavy equipment construction and while his mother opted to stay home with the children, not working until they were older. Mickey knew early on he wanted to be a musician. His parents listened to Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Boxcar Willie. His uncle, Leroy, played in Honkey Tonks around New England and Lamantia would be invited to sit in sometimes as a teenager. In 1992, he was heard singing a Randy Travis song at a karaoke bar and was asked to open four shows in New England for Willie Nelson at just 22 years of age. In 2015, Lamantia began hosting one of the first shows on the monster site, Facebook, entitled Whiskey Wednesdays. The show is sponsored by Sons of Liberty Whiskey Co., and averages 10,000 to 20,000 views each week. Lamantia is an efficient user of social media to promote his work, often doing spontaneous videos or halftime shows on his page during football games. His most recent album, Every Bad Habit debuted at #10 on the ITunes Album Chart, a phenomenal feat for an independent artist. In 2017, Lamantia opened for Mickey Gilley at The Cowboy Palace in Nashville. He also played The Tumbleweed music festival in Kansas City with country legends Billy Joe Shaver and Jamey Johnson.
