A former radio personality, Larry’s comedy skyrocketed with the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” featuring Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall. The tour’s success led to “Blue Collar Comedy Tour, the Movie,” which upon its 2003 premiere on Comedy Central was the highest rated movie in the network’s history.

Many know Larry as the voice of the beloved Mater in Disney/ Pixar’s Golden Globe-winning feature films “Cars” (2006) and “Cars 2″ (2011). Larry has also starred in “Tooth Fairy 2″ (2012), “Witless Protection” (2008), “Delta Farce” (2007) and “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector” (2006).

JB and The Moonshine Band

JB & TMB Feature

JB & TMB

 

Some might say the four-piece JB and the Moonshine Band was born the day JB Patterson looked up to see that only three musicians had shown up at his open- call audition in his Tyler, Texas, hometown. Fortunately, Gabe Guevara (drums), Hayden McMullen (lead guitar) and Chris Flores (bass guitar) turned out to be the right three and, after a brief musical and personal get-to-know-you session, everyone realized the stars had aligned to bring them together.

But if you ask JB when the band really started, he’ll reflect back to a time rooted less in music and more in his unfulfilled dreams.

Cody Canada & The Departed

Departed Feature

Departed

“The two things that drive me are love and hate”

- Cody Canada, March 2014

The latest, tight incarnation of the Cody Canada-led group The Departed isn’t a reinvention of the group’s sound, or a reimagining of Canada’s musical perspective – it’s a reunion. As with any reunion, the passing years have provided the involved parties with new and unique perspectives, breathing vibrant excitement into their streamlined new environment.

Canada, Jeremy Plato, Chris Doege and Steve Littleton are reopening the doors to a sonic garage where sounds and stories some thought were gone for good are now being unleashed onto an eager public after a few years of fruitful – even risky – artistic diversion. Being guided by raw emotion and nerves that are often unguarded, Canada hasn’t begun to pluck the opening notes to an increasing number of Cross Canadian Ragweed favorites without some reluctance or painful reminiscence, mind you. But the powerful nature of such visceral connections is what makes his stories stunning while rightfully placing him in a prominent class of modern songwriters occupied by the influential likes of Robert Earl Keen, Bruce and Charlie Robison, Todd Snider, Mike McClure and the men of Reckless Kelly, among only a strict few others.

2nd Annual Stewpalooza – Featuring Logan Mize

Logan Mize Feature

Logan Mize

 

He’s a new voice… an honest new voice. That would be Heartland Country-Rocker, Logan Mize.

Just listen to his no-nonsense single “Used Up,” a hit-the-road anthem for every guy who’s endured a crushing breakup. Mize delivers it with raw candor, and gritty passion. It’s no wonder the song was recently a “Highway Find” on Sirius XM’s The Highway. You can catch the lyric video on his website, loganmize.com.
Mize spent a good part of 2013 behind the camera in a couple of high profile turns on the small screen. The Kansas native found himself guest starring in two nationally-watched TV appearances that undoubtedly introduced him to new audiences.
He ended up in a widely viewed “Fabric Of Our Life” cotton commercial with Hayden Panettiere of ABC-TV’s lauded Nashville. Mize and his band are shown performing on stage at Music City’s legendary Station Inn. But there’s more: Mize played himself and sang, also with his band, in a recent episode of The CW’s hit drama Hart of Dixie starring Rachel Bilson.
