Friday opens with the local singer-songwriter Elizabeth Mary!

Elizabeth Mary wrote her first song, "I Have a Dream,” at age 10 and has been pursuing that dream ever since. Raised on a dairy farm in rural Iowa, Elizabeth
Mary performed her first shows to herds of disinterested cattle and cornfields. Destined to become a n entertainer, Elizabeth got her first taste of performing
in local choirs and talent shows in her community.

At age 22, she earned her loyal fanbase with her first band combining her powerful vocals and energetic performances that captivated audiences in the Tri-State area throughout her 8-year run with the band.


Early 2018, Elizabeth set out to begin her solo career as a singer-songwriter recording and releasing her six-track debut EP Album, “Dance wih the Fear’. Her first single, Mirror, Mirror was picked up by local radio and is streaming nationwide.
Following the success of “Breathe in Girl”, Elizabeth Mary went right back to the studio to begin work on her full-length album. Her newest single “Sweatpants and Wine” released June 2019 and became her third single to receive regional airplay and regular rotation. Her highly anticipated 14 track, all original album, “Meet Me in Madison” is expected to be released in Fall 2019.

Check out her website here.

To continue Friday's country theme, we are proud to present Jake McVey!

Music has the power to move the masses and few artists understand that better than Jake McVey. A relentless road dog who performs 250+ dates a year, McVey has earned a loyal fan base that’s addicted to his fiery stage show and arsenal of ear-grabbing songs.

A compelling performer who combines his upbeat music and a youthful enthusiasm with a seasoned eye for reading a crowd, McVey gives his all at every show. “It’s all about entertaining the fans and showing each and every person in the room a good time.” He’s shared the stage with some of country’s most acclaimed acts, including Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, and Dierks Bentley.
