SORT BY Relevancy
The Atlanta based Haley & Alexis Band were a little surprised when they were nominated for the Georgia Country Music “Best (Regional) Country Band Award” of 2012, after only solidifying the current band line-up only a year earlier!
The Haley & Alexis Band sound comes from unique elements brought to the table by each member. Haley tends to pattern her style and sound in the elegance of her influences Shania Twain, Reba, and Faith Hill, while Alexis admits, “I’ve always been more attracted to artists like Miranda Lambert, Brantley Gilbert, and others who have an edgier tone to their music, bridging the gap between country and rock”. These, combined with the diverse musical background of the rhythm section, have made for a refreshing take on what is considered modern country.
Always dedicated to their fans, Haley & Alexis Band plan to continually expand their tour dates to reach beyond their Southeast market and become a more viable national act. Haley emphasizes, “Our motto has always been ‘Go Big or Go Home’, in that you either go all-in for what you believe in, or don’t do it at all”. The affirmation has thus far proven successful, as the band has enjoyed an ever growing fan-base, opening for such notable national acts as Mark Chesnutt, Dustin Lynch, and Love & Theft to name a few. The band continues to prove that along with their consistent touring, iTunes, social media, and radio, “…Going Home” is not going to be an option!
Age 6 seems quite young to start a music career, but it was way back even then that Brandon knew playing guitar and singing was his calling.
In his humble beginnings in the small town of Greensboro, NC, Brandon’s dad taught him chords, and the rest is history.
Performing all over Brunswick County, into Myrtle Beach, and many points in between, Brandon’s shows are spirited and energetic. Brandon combines today’s hottest Country Music hits with high-powered Southern Rock and Classic Rock favorites, as well as soulful interpretations of some Classic Country hits from Hank Jr. and others.
And as the winner of Nashville’s coveted American Country Star competition, you’ll hear some great new originals that will soon be flooding the airwaves!
It doesn't get more country than a 7 year old little girl hearing Randy Travis' "Diggin' Up Bones" on the radio and finding herself in Nashville with a tidal wave of a career poised to hit the shore sooner than later.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Amanda Daughtry.
Originally hailing from Johnston County, North Carolina, Amanda has spent the past few years solidifying her status as a must-see performer in all areas of the state that built her into the woman she is today. Her roots can be seen through the lens of her family musical influence, which can be traced back to her grandmother, who led the 1st soprano section of the church choir. Eventually, once she was old enough to drive, Amanda was able to go off and sing as a part of many theatre and country variety shows in the area. Eventually, she put together a full band of her own and spent a number of years booking and managing the outfit herself as they traveled.
Amanda has built a solid reputation of performing a vast array of current and classic country music, classic rock, and mainstream pop alongside songs of her own that she shares with those who are willing to listen. Any given night, there's not a chance that someone walks out of the show without having a great time. Amanda's success has been validated with opportunities to open for top country acts like Chris Young and Justin Moore.
