Frank Foster embodies musical independence at it’s highest level. He not only has taken the road less traveled, but the road almost never traveled. Acting as his own record label, management, booking agency and publishing company, he has managed to find success that some major label artist may never find. This rural Louisiana native and former oilfield man has taken his songs from the campfire to the coliseum seemingly overnight, all the while gaining a following of fans whose loyalty is unmatched.
His musical journey started in 2011 with the release of his first album “Rowdy Reputation”. To follow that up, in the late summer of 2012, he released his second album “Red Wings and Six Strings”, which debuted on the Billboard Country Charts at #30. Each and every song from both of those albums have become nightly sing-a-longs at his shows. Foster’s third album, “Southern Soul”, was released in 2013 and debuted at #11 on the Billboard Country Charts confirming that his popularity was continuing to soar to new heights. His fourth album, “Rhythm and Whiskey”, was released in 2014 and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Country Charts solidifying him as a true power house in the industry. He followed that up with his fifth album, 2016’s “Boots On the Ground”, which gave him his second top 10 debuting album in as many years. It entered the Billboard Country Charts at #7. Later in 2016, he released his 6th album, “Good Country Music”, which debuted at #13 on the Billboard Country Charts. He’s a singer, a songwriter and his own boss. He refuses to let anyone water down his kind of country music. If he lives it, he writes it; if he writes it, he sings it; if he sings it, he believes it. Frank Foster…. a true original.
With his warm and inviting voice, rugged good looks and boyish charm, Denny Strickland is on the fast track to stardom. The rising newcomer charted a pair of singles on the MusicRow Country Breakout ™ Chart with the full throttle “Swerve On” and the suggestive “How Far You Wanna Go.” His sultry acoustic cover of Conway Twitty’s “I’d Love To Lay You Down” garnered worldwide attention with a staggering four-week #1 run on the Hotdisc international chart last fall. Throw in performances at some of the biggest venues in the United States, sold-out shows during CMA Music Festival week, and high-profile openings for many of today’s biggest stars (Jamey Johnson, 3 Doors Down, The Kentucky Headhunters), and it’s easy to see how Strickland’s name is a prominent one on the Country music horizon. No one is more appreciative than Denny.
“I’m so thankful for what I’ve accomplished so far,” Denny says. “The fans are incredible and I’ve got a great team behind me. The sky is the limit this year.”
Big dreams – and the achievement of them – are nothing new for the Arkansas native. He crisscrossed America on the horse show circuit, becoming an American Quarter Horse champion. “I participated in horse shows all my life, so I traveled a lot – just like I’m doing now. Today, when I am on the road, it feels like I’m at home.” It was through his success on the horse show circuit that Strickland would meet a man who would eventually become his manager, longtime Johnny Cash band member Marshall Grant.
“My musical influences are all over the map,” he notes, adding that he worked hard to merge a mix of several genres before he could create his own unique sound. “I knew I had to develop my own style in order to have any longevity in the music business.” In 2012, Strickland moved to Nashville to concentrate full time on his career.
With his newest single, “Get A Grip,” Strickland’s rich voice immediately captures the listener.
Suggestively sensual, the hypnotic track evokes pure sex appeal. “I love the production,” Denny notes. “And I love it that it is so descriptive. It’s basically a song about getting a grip on both the physical and the emotional levels of a relationship.”
“I get out there and play as much as I can and I wouldn’t change a minute of it,” Denny declares. “I love being on stage and giving back to the fans. I’ve figured out that if I’m having a good time, then the audience is having a good time. As the numbers grow, it gets more and more rewarding.”
