Artist Lineup

Chevel Shepherd

Chevel Shepherd is helping us all remember the power of pedal steel and good stories. With bold sincerity and a sparrow’s natural instincts, Chevel sings modern country music that toes tradition’s best lines. The 18-year-old New Mexico native first charmed America as the champion of season 15 of The Voice, nurtured by coach Kelly Clarkson. Chevel spent the next year checking off a long list of red-letter firsts, including opening shows for Clarkson, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne, Lee Brice and more, along with singing “God Bless America” before the Indianapolis 500. On March 20, 2020, Chevel released two highly-anticipated new songs: the moving “Everybody’s Got a Story,” written by Kacey Musgraves, Shane McAnally, and Brandy Clark; and “Mama Got the Chair,” a clever call-and-response to George Strait’s iconic “The Chair” penned by Nora Collins, Nick Donley, and The Voice alum Dave Fenley. With “Southern Boy” and "The Letter" as her third and fourth offerings from her forthcoming EP, fans can hear more and order her new album at chevelshepherd.com.

The Swon Brothers 

The year 2013 was pivotal in the lives of The Swon Brothers.  With the help of their coach, Blake Shelton, they became the first duo to ever be finalists on the hit TV show “The Voice.”  Later that year they signed their first major record deal with Arista Nashville.

Zach and Colton have received CMA and ACM Award nominations for “Vocal Duo of the Year,” as well as a CMT Music Award nomination for “Duo Video of the Year.”  The brothers joined Brad Paisley on his Country Nation World Tour and Carrie Underwood on her Storyteller Tour, and constantly tour on their own, treating their loyal fans to “Swoncerts” everywhere.

The Swon Brothers continually write and record music.  They have released two EPs, TIMELESS (#2 iTunes/#19 Billboard debut) and PRETTY COOL SCARS,  as well singles including; their self-penned song “What Ever Happened” (A Rolling Stone Country Top 10 Weekly Song), “Midnight Lovers” and “This Town,” also written by Zach and Colton. “Travelin’ On,” written by Zach Swon, Colton Swon, Jonathan Dean and Stephen Hunley, features country legend Vince Gill on guitar and vocals. Their self-penned and produced single, “Mommas,” released this year in honor of Mother’s Day, was followed by a special acoustic version of the song and a beautiful lyric video featuring photos submitted by fans. The duo’s current single, “Good To You,” is streaming now on all digital platforms! The Swon Brothers will release a much anticipated full-length album later this year.

Beat Root Revival

Got the BEAT, ROOTED in old music and creating a REVIVAL 

Comprised of multi-instrumentalists Ben Jones from Kent, England and Belfast, Ireland native Andrea Magee, the duo has been taking American audiences by storm with their utterly original sonic amalgam of folk, rock, country, and traditional Irish sounds.

After landing in America 5 years ago, Beat Root Revival has stolen the hearts of captive audiences, most recently as support for the Brian Wilson’s Pet Sounds and Christmas tour. Also touring as the opening act for Brian Setzer, The Fixx and Nashville’s ABC’s TV star Jonathan Jackson.

 

Nathaniel Krantz *

Albuquerque native, Nathaniel Krantz, has always had a love for music.  He started playing music at a young age as a member of the worship team at his local church.  His passion and love for country music led to the formation of The Nathaniel Krantz Band in 2019. Nathaniel Krantz offers a variety of modern and traditional country music. The stage performance of the Nathaniel Krantz is one of high energy that will surely have you singing and dancing all night long! 

Shawn Brooks aka El Gringo *

30 year old singer/songwriter from a small town in New Mexico. From a ranching/cowboy family, fluent in Spanish, recording a full country album in Nashville summer 2010.

Plain Jane * 

Plain Jane consist of sisters D’Ette and D’Anna who are anything but plain. Their show stopping beauty, fashion and vocal style is unmatched here in the Southwest. The sisters are well-known in and around New Mexico as Sorela. The award-winning duo enjoyed success in singing traditional Spanish songs since the early 90’s’. In 2005, Nashville came calling to record some original bilingual material with some of Nashville’s best songwriters, producers and musicians. Since, the sisters have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with legendary Grammy Award winner Lynn Anderson, multi-Grammy Award winner Flaco Jimenez and Grammy nominee Michael Martin Murphy.  D’Ette and D’Anna also had the honor of being a part of Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion radio show. There they introduced the audience around the world to their special blend of Spanish-Country music. Family has brought the duo off the road but they couldn’t resist the pull of the spot light. In 2017, they formed the group Plain Jane. The group enjoys playing in dance halls and honkytonks. Their band consists of the best musicians the Southwest has to offer. They have established a true fan following in their few years together. Plain Jane’s sweet and sassy style makes for a high energy and charismatic show.

Green Chili Country Allstar Band led by Donny Tesso backing up
