Hailing from coastal Maryland, Jason Morton and Brett Wilmer of The Cheaters, brings a rejuvenating edge as well as class tight harmonies to country music with the release of their new EP Waitin’ On Right Now. The EP showcases the band’s high energy personalities with their lighter-swaying tunes including She’s Got A Way and The Cotton’s Gettin’ High, a party anthem of a good ole southern Saturday night. With enviable talent they have held their own opening for renowned bands such as ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Eric Church, Shooter Jennings and many others. From entering a contest and being handpicked by Slash as an opening act, to being the only band picked by Paul McCartney’s manager to represent the U.S. in a Lithuanian Music Festival, these guys have rocked with some legends and are ready to show country music what they are made of. They can rock out on guitar like Skynyrd with explosive crescendos but, are still able to sing to the hearts of many with their vulnerable ballads like Eric Church. The Cheaters have sold thousands of records and played over 1,000 shows throughout the U.S.A., in addition to successfully performing in Europe, Guam and Japan.
With his towering height and powerful voice, Bryan Mayer, is making a BIG impact on the Country music scene. A North Carolina native, the 6’7” singer/songwriter began his journey in music when he was 13. The son of a US Marine Corps Colonel and a Navy nurse, while stationed in Quantico, VA, Bryan was tapped by his middle school music teacher to play the upright bass in the school band for his already impressive height of 6’1” in the 7th grade. Although Bryan enjoyed playing the bass, the lure of the front man aspect and realizing he could sing lead him to pick up the guitar. After some impromptu performances at keg parties at his house in college at ECU, Bryan ended up on the Carolina sands of Oak Island, NC. It was there that he started crafting his style and gutting it out in any bar, restaurant or party that would hire him.
Being a southern man from NC, Bryan identified with the bonfires, days on the river, and the simple life that Country is. It wasn’t long after that show that Country radio powerhouse 95.1 WRNS took notice of Mayer’s talent and began to use him as a frequent opener at concerts for National Country headliners like Trace Adkins, Joe Nichols, Craig Morgan, Eli Young Band, The Band Perry, Thompson Square, and dozens more including Southern Rock Gods, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Years before, Bryan had already performed with Marshall Tucker and Blackfoot.
He has just been named 2014 Best Male Country Vocalist by the Carolina Music Awards. His latest hit, "This Is Me" is getting national and international airplay.

Ron Eckerman was an early pioneer in the concert industry. In 1973, he began producing concert tours and created a concert lighting / tour management company, Clear light Enterprises. The organization toured with the top bands of the era: Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, Willie Nelson, WAR, Humble Pie, Foghat, Alvin Lee, Waylon Jennings, Trapeze, Montrose, Gary Wright, and many others.
In 1976, he took on the challenge of managing Lynyrd Skynyrd tours, and witnessed and participated in their meteoric rise to fame and worldwide acclaim. After recovering from the tragic plane crash that put an end to the original Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eckerman went on to produce in television, film, and stage, and taught theater and artist management at Santa Monica College.
What a show! Tonight we welcome the original drummer for the band Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Burns who will share some fun stories from Skynyrd's early years, and take calls from fans. Also we welcome James Michael "Bubba" Bruce, touring drummer behind Billy Bob Thornton's Boxmasters as well as Unknown Hinson. Bruce has written one of the single most hilarious Southern fiction novels I have ever read called "Show Bidness," and we will talk about the book and his music! And finally, our buddies from The Southern Rock Society will be filling us in on all the goings on in Southern Rock!

Tonight we welcome back and old friend as surprise guest co-host! Our special guests tonight is the band HORNBUCKLE. Brian & Michael Hornbuckle cut their teeth with their father, Denver blues guitar legend Bobby Hornbuckle, on stage as his back up band. In 1996 Bobby “went home.” Michael put down the sticks and inherited his dad’s Gibson; perhaps a piece of Bobby’s soul and his ability to play guitar came along with it. Since then, the blues rockers have shared stages with everyone from the Doobie Brothers (at Red Rocks Amphitheatre) to The Allman Brothers, Ted Nugent, Joe Walsh, Gov’t Mule, Styx, Bad Company, Z.Z. Top, B.B. King, Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyd, James Brown and list goes on. We are happy to have the guys on as our special guests tonight during our final Blogtalk broadcast.
We are running this show in honor of Coach Skinner tonight , who passed away last week.
"That old high-school coach died Monday in a nursing home in Jacksonville, Fla., at 77, but his rules and his name will live forever in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Leonard Skinner was the former basketball coach, assistant football coach and gym teacher at Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville. When he was coaching and teaching in the late 1960s, the school's dress code didn't permit boys to wear long hair.
"My father was a very strict disciplinarian," said Skinner's daughter Susie Moore. "Rules were black and white. There was no gray area. He did things by the book. That's what he stood for."
One day in his gym class, Skinner noticed that Gary Rossington, a guitarist in a rock 'n' roll band, had hair that flowed well below his collar. Skinner sent Rossington to the principal's office, and he was suspended from school. Rossington, lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and the rest of the band members changed their name to "Lynyrd Skynyrd" as a mocking tribute to the stern gym teacher.
Skynyrd's guitar army would go on to international success, cranking out such anthems as "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The old coach eventually embraced the fame that came with the rock 'n' roll version of his name, but never quite understood why he was being ridiculed for doing his job and trying to make rebellious kids respect the rules"
from Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel
