This native Texan singer/songwriter started writing songs and playing guitar at an early age. A former collegiate and Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association member, Mack learned early on the value and advantages of being an independent thinker and writer. His ability to write songs and pick songs from other writers that people can relate to in everyday life is quite evident in the albums that Mack has recorded and in his stage show.
Always wanting to be mobile and have the ability to take his live show outdoors anywhere, Mack had the idea to make a semi rig that would transform into a large outdoor stage, complete with sound and lights. Mack and long-time friend, Texas singer/songwriter, Kenny Zink, convinced Mack’s wife Jessie to help them build this rig. This rig has been used at various venues from Texas Motor Speedway to many outdoor festivals, including Mack’s Mason County Country Music Festival in Mason, Texas. On July 3, 2008, Mack and his band performed on Mack’s mobile stage at Willie Nelson’s Grand Opening at Carl’s Corner, Texas along with Willie, Darrell McCall, Leona Williams, and a host of other great country acts. This mobile rig can be seen at www.prizmstaging.com.

THE LODGE AT RIVER OAKS
Her songs are a honky tonk acid trip of classic dancehall and 70’s outlaw country rolled into a tight-knit package, all headlined by a big Texas voice and an unmistakable style that’s all her own. And if you catch a little twist of blues and rock’n’ roll in the vocal, that’s not by accident. Growing up in a small Texas town like Winchester, that’s the way country music is done!
But in her heart, Briana Adams writes songs because it’s her outlet, her way of sharing herself with the world. That her music happens to have commercial appeal is secondary to her inner need to write it in the first place!
“I write music because it can be one of the most intimate forms of communication. When I was a little girl, I told myself I was going to be a musician and write songs and I’ve stuck with it. I do this because I LOVE IT!”

THE BELLAMY BROTHERS: THE LOVE STILL FLOWS…
Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success.
These days when the subject turns to touring, The Bellamys are showing a new generation of country music how it’s done. “We’re old road dogs,” grins Howard when asked about the motivation behind the brothers 200 plus concert dates each year. Adds David: “Our live draw is bigger than it was in the ‘80’s. I think the same people that grew up with us and with our music in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s obviously have raised a whole new generation of Bellamy fans who started toddling to our music. Now they’re turning up at our concerts as college kids, who are really turned on and tuned in to us and our music….it’s a great feeling.”
The Bellamy Brothers latest project is their new album titled '40 Years' is an ambitious project that celebrates their career with 20 of their biggest hits and then adds 20 brand new songs in this 2 CD anniversary collection.
