We have 5 great singles this week in our Texas Music Breakthrough from Bubba Westly, Calamity Janes, Jarrod Sterrett, Market Junction, and Maddison Livingston! LISTEN, SHARE, AND REQUEST! Let’s help these singles breakthrough on to the Texas music charts!
This fantastic follow up to “Roses” is sure to grab your ear from the very first note. It is NOT a song about truck driving, listen to it and hear the lyrics and you will know exactly what I mean. Bubba‘s powerhouse vocals grab you and pull you in to this very lyrically visual tune. Once again Bubba Westly & Interstate Heartbreak deliver a song, that will not only have you tapping your toe and singing along, but also makes you think and feel.
This trio of sisters is exactly what comes to mind when you think sassy Texas singer/songwriters. With signature three part sibling harmonies, hints of bluegrass and soul mixed with Red Dirt, and solid song writing, TheCalamity Janes have established a style that is truly all their own. The vocal versatility these gals possess to switch from a backwoods bluegrass song to Irish Country Stomp ensures there will be something everyone can enjoy.
Jarrod Sterrett moved to Huntsville in 2006 and had a passion for music, along with 8 years of experience playing. Since he was the new guy in town, he had a hard time getting a steady set of musicians to play with him. When he got gigs that required more than an acoustic show he asked musicians that didn’t have a regular band or any loyalties to play with him. Musicians refer to these jobs as hired gun work, so naturally he billed himself as Jarrod Sterrett and the Hired Guns.
In September of 2009 he got a steady group of guys and started gigging more but the name remained. Now they are a band with over 50 years of combined experience. They are known for being able to play songs that get the crowd on their feet and singing at the top of their lungs.
Market Junction is a raw and earthy Texas based Folk/Country band. With a sound that is a bit off the beaten path, they look to bring a fresh feel to the red dirt scene with their debut single “Give It Time”. Soaring harmonies, a multi-instrumentalist and well crafted tunes brand this group’s style.
Look for them to make a name in the South Texas Region.
Born and raised in West Texas, Maddison Livingston was exposed at an early age to horses, rodeo, and the cowboy way of life. Early on, she became consumed by her love of music, being especially drawn to the country music that embodied the rodeos of West Texas and Southern New Mexico. Eventually, the two common threads began to weave together.
Her fast paced honky tonk songs are merely a reflection of her vision of her world, the stories she has lived alone the way, the characters that have molded her past and become blended into her soulful vocals and the music she creates and shares with her growing fan base.
