This event is all ages
An Americana duo based out of Tahlequah, OK, Sam and Autumn both grew up in small towns in Eastern Oklahoma, where they met through choir in school. They began traveling and playing music together shortly after. The band "Ragland!" was formed in 2015 when they decided to combine both of their solo projects into one, later receiving a #1 on the Music City Top 40 Chart with their single "Stay Awake", from their first album "Just So You Know". They are now a touring/working project that creates Red Dirt/Americana music.
Ragland's style comes from a background of Rock & Roll, and Country music. Their music is inspired by the events of everyday life and how they perceive them. They enjoy making music that is both relatable and interesting to listen to. Ragland has worked with David Percefull and Adam Odor out of Yellow DOG Studios out of Wimberely, TX on their previous and current projects.
Ragland! is currently working on their new album "Murphy's Law", while promoting the first, already released 5 songs, that includes the first single "Love, Liquor, & a Place to Die".
The new album will consist of a new and "close to home" sound for Ragland, that shows their true personality and soul. All new songs on the album are a direct influence from personal experiences and were created to specifically reflect the emotions related to them.
DocFell & Co
Dust Bowl Americana storytellers Doc Fell & Co. third studio album, ‘Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma’ on May 4. Steeped in elements of traditional country, gospel funk and folk-rock, this release is a turning point in the band’s catalog - a master class in songwriting that confronts death and the afterlife bookended with rawhide-tough guitar licks, the lush ambience of pedal steel and frontman John Fell’s gritty vocals.
Recorded at the illustrious Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberley, Texas, ‘Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma’ was produced by David Percefull and engineered by Adam Odor and features eleven original tracks (all written by Fell). “The end of the line” provides the backdrop for the album as Fell’s evocative lyrics are told through the prism of his home state of Oklahoma.
“Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma is a journey down a dead end street,” explains Fell. “The concept behind the album became songs inspired by the afterlife. I had written two of the album’s tracks during funerals. Going through my catalog, I found other songs that had similar themes. The title evolved from embracing this idea but also left open the ability to slide in our track “A Different Drum” which is more about our home state.”
Album opener “Peace Maker (The Ballad Of Wyatt Earp)” instantly takes on eternal rest and possesses an undercurrent of loss as Fell thoughtfully croons “You could fill a graveyard with the lives of men who drew their pistols and thought they could win." “End of the Line” is a red dirt ditty written in honor of truck drivers (the unsung hero’s of the highway) while roots rocker “Slim Says” is Fell’s personal statement on the “death” of radio and overall state of the music industry. “Tough” and “A Different Drum” are lilting, fiddle-heavy odes to Fell’s papa Fred and Oklahoma, respectively.
The blues-infused “Mean Marie” is easily the centerpiece of ‘Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma.’ Drawing inspiration from a true story told at the funeral of Fell’s wife’s grandmother. Click here to give it a listen. The album ends on a spiritual, hopeful note with “Beulah Land,” a modern day hymn based on the concept of the original hymn with the same name.
Formed in 2011, Doc Fell & Co. features John Fell (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Kyle Brown (lead guitar), Joe Sloan (drums, percussion), Adam Miller (cello, harmonica), Eddie Dickerson (fiddle, cello, mandolin) and Geoff Queen (pedal steel guitar). For this release, J. Meridian lended help on backing vocals and Percefull added baritone, electric/bass guitars, electric sitar and keyboards.
A band creating a sound you can’t resist!
Katelyn Myers is a 12-year-old singer and songwriter from Tahlequah, Oklahoma. She plays the piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, ukulele, and mandolin. She is the American Kids 2016 Breakout Artist and the 2017 Instrumentalist of the Year.
Country artist and singer/songwriter, radio DJ for Lakes Country 102.1, "Okie from Muskogee" and father of two great kids.
Growing up in the “legendary” town of Muskogee, Oklahoma, you could say that Free Kennedy was destined to pursue a career in country music. From an early age, Kennedy started learning to sing and play guitar, with great support from both his mother and father, who also happened to be a guitarist. From his parent's vast record collection, Kennedy began listening to and learning from Johnny Cash, James Taylor and The Eagles. “I really started getting attention from girls and that was my initial drive to keep playing and performing,” Kennedy laughs. “As I got older though, I really began to truly love making music and performing live, and I finally realized I had to give it a serious shot as a career,” Kennedy says.
As a father of two, Kennedy needed a way to continue pursuing his music career while helping to provide for his children. Fortunately, through radio DJ, friend and fan "Lightning" Lou Kelly, Free was able to land a job as a country radio DJ at Lakes Country 102.1 in the local Muskogee area to apply his knowledge and skills as a music artist and entertainer. Being a country radio DJ has allowed Free to pursue his career as a country music artist and continue to provide for his children. Free has begun working with several impressed Nashville music business executives to further his career in music, including recording new music and building a fan base.
Providing for his children and being a great father while having a career as a country music artist is important to Free. This is no more apparent in Free's song "That's Where You'll Find Me". The song's message about always being there for someone no matter what spoke immediately to Free. "Like every parent out there, I want to always be there for my kids and support them no matter what," says Free. "This song spoke to me on many levels but I immediately thought of the way I feel about my kids. The song also expresses the way I feel about my fans. As an artist I also want to always make my music fans happy." Providing for his kids and his fans, that's where you'll find Free Kennedy.
