    Country Newcomer: Greg Michaels

    in Country Music

    Growing up in small town MN was the basis for Greg's love of country music. 
    Eden Valley, a farm community of about 800 people and no stop lights, is where he got his first guitar and wrote his first country song. He grew up on the edge of a main road, railroad track, and a corn field. It's a place where he learned to hunt, fish, play sports, and appreciate  music  of  many genres. It's where he learned about honesty, family, friendship, and team work. All of which  come into play in the songs he writes, in his live show and on a daily basis. If he's not out playing or writing country songs, he's in the woods with a bow, on a lake fishing bass, cruising dirt roads in his truck with his buddies, or out  listening to area classic country bands.


    Influenced by the vinyl record sounds from his father's collection of country greats such as Haggard, Strait, and Cash...Greg found that a strong song and a strong vocal is key to a good career. He was later influenced by the  sounds and   live shows of more modern day artists like Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn,  Tim McGraw, etc.  and also the 90's country scene. He has worked hard over the years to develop his skills as a country performer and songwriter. He has been fortunate to have played in the company of many talented MN musicians, and  opening shows for talented National acts such as 
    Jamey Johnson, Little Texas, Emerson Drive, Colt Ford, and Trent Willmon.

    Country Newcomer: Stacy Burk

    in Country Music

    Stacy Burk is a country music artist from Van Alstyne, Texas. His musical influences are George Strait, Don Williams and Jim Reeves – you can hear that in his voice. He’s a genuine cowboy – you can see that in his confident demeanor. 


    Through a professional music consultant, Stacy was introduced to industry icon, Josh Leo (Alabama, Reba McEntire, Restless Heart, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Martina McBride, Kathy Mattea and LeAnn Rimes), and convinced him to produce his record. Leo, the industry proclaimed "Renaissance Man" recently celebrated another #1 song with Love and Theft’s "Angel Eyes" – the 23rd #1 song that Leo has touched in his 30-plus-year-music career as a songwriter, producer and musician.


    Through a mutual friend Stacy reached out to Los Angeles based director, Dave West. Stacy was looking for a story or concept for a video for the song, "Til Your Boots are Dirty" and had seen two of West's short films ("Puddlejumper" & "The Do Over"). West came up with the idea of taking a ‘city boy’ to the country and over the course of the song he gets his ‘boots dirty’ and transforms into a ‘country boy.’ West and Burk polished the idea and then brainstormed on how to find a way to have the song and specifically the video to pop through an incredibly crowded landscape. They understood that going "viral" is not something you can really plan, but prepping yourself to be able to maximize social media is.  


    Through his multiple seasons working as a producer on Dancing with the Stars, West befriended Maksim Chmerkovskiy. One call to Maks explaining the story was all he needed to come onboard.
