Cody Jinks
Cody Jinks
Conceived in a honky tonk long, long ago, Cody now makes his living in them. Accompanied by the Tonedeaf Hippies, he rolls across the land and the oceans onto other lands to sow a collective musical seed. Not like the brazen giant of "Texas/Red Dirt" fame, he is a fair-sized man with a Zippo whose flame longs to be ignited by the sound of real music.

"Keep that which is plastic, and the posers that compose for money. Give us your listeners, your dreamers, your huddled drunken masses longing to break free of the feces on our radios. Send these: the hippies and the cowboys, and we will flick our bics through those swinging doors"

VIP ticket includes: 1 VIP Laminate, an Autographed CD from Cody Jinks, A VIP Koozie from Cody Jinks, a ticket to the show, and a private Meet and Greet with Cody Jinks. Purchaser must arrive 1 hour prior to doors.
Ward Davis
Ward Davis is an American Singer/Songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee. Born in Monticello, Arkansas, Ward moved to Nashville in 2000 and has since had songs recorded by Trace Adkins, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Wade Hayes, Sammy Kershaw, Bucky Covington, Jimmie Van Zant, Buddy Jewel, Carolina Rain, The Roys, and many others. Ward and his band, The Beagles, were featured and performed on the A&E reality series, Crazy Hearts: Nashville in early 2014. Ward's EP, No Bridges is available on iTunes, and he is currently working on a new album with Grammy winning producer, Jim "Moose" Brown, that is scheduled to be released Spring 2015.
Porter Union
Porter Union, led by husband and wife, Cole Michael Porter and Kendra Porter, is the result of the two old souls spending the better part of the last decade traveling the country together to play their music everywhere from the dive bars and honky tonks to festivals and theaters. When you hear the story of Cole and Kendra meeting in a hometown bar, falling in love while writing and playing together, it sounds like fairy tale built by corporate music row. Luckily, that’s where the comparison stops - you won’t find overproduced, cliche filled songs here. Their honest approach to songwriting combines raw emotional themes with a traditional country sound to bring the listener into the story. It’s no surprise they’ve shared a stage with a variety of notable artists including Cody Jinks, Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Whitey Morgan, and David Allan Coe.


With a vision to create a relatable album with a touch of nostalgia, the couple teamed up with producer Joshua Thompson in January 2017. Thompson, who is also the bassist for Cody Jinks, gained notoriety as a producer after taking the lead producer role on Jinks’ latest record ‘I’m not the Devil’. The self-titled album is set to release in June 2017 and you’ll find Porter Union out on the road the rest of the year with tour dates as far west as California and east of the Mississippi over the next year.
