Here are a few comments about this Award winning singer/songwriter and friend.

Jerry Salley has been referred to by Billboard Magazine as "One of Music Row's greatest veteran tunesmiths," and has had over 500 songs recorded (selling in excess of 18 million records worldwide) in his multi-award winning songwriting career. From Sir Elton John's only chart single to appear on the Billboard Country Chart ("Where We Both Say Goodbye" - duet with Australian artist Catherine Britt) to a Gospel song so popular it has been included in Church Hymnals ("His Strength Is Perfect”), Jerry's long list of accomplishments speaks for itself.

Writing and singing in Nashville since 1982, he has written multiple hits in Country, Bluegrass and Gospel music and may well be the most successful songwriter to have earned equal recognition from all three genres of music.

Salley was named the 2003 SESAC Country Songwriter of the Year, the 2018 IBMA Songwriter of the Year and was a 2019 Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame nominee.

Craig Carothers @ SongRiders Live

The Pollock Ranch, 16 Sandy Lane, Greenbrier

Craig Carothers lived in Portland before it was hip and moved to Nashville before it was ready for prime time. He’s always been a little ahead of the curve and an old school kind of cool.

His music is heartbreakingly beautiful and scathingly funny, delivered with a lively deadpan smile and a voice that’s downright swoony.

Too folk for rock, too pop for folk, too jazz for country, too tall to be a jockey. It's difficult to easily categorize his music without the use of hyphens. But the wide-ranging influences of Craig’s music-teacher parents can be heard in each of his 20 albums.

As a touring musician and a regular at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Craig has shared a stage with the likes of Richard Thompson, Janis Ian, David Wilcox, Patty Larkin, and Michael McDonald.

He’s a songwriter’s songwriter, sharing co-writes with Bruce Hornsby, Don Schlitz, Maia Sharp, and Marty Stewart, to name a few.

He’s had songs recorded by Trisha Yearwood, Kathy Mattea, Lorrie Morgan, Russell Hitchcock, Peter, Paul and Mary, and numerous European artists whose names are unspellable.

As an adjunct professor, Craig shares his songwriting expertise at the University of Miami and through online and in-person songwriting workshops across the U.S. and Europe.

He is also a producer, recording engineer, background singer, booking agent, graphic designer, photographer, Tex-Mex connoisseur, left-wing inactivist, and a collector of exquisitely obsolete gadgets. A true Renaissance man.

The Pollock's, 16 Sandy Lane, Greenbrier

“Max T. Barnes” will perform a 1 night house concert hosted by Jim and Suzy Pollock at the Pollock Ranch in Greenbrier, AR on FRI February 22nd @ 7pm. DOORS OPEN AT 6PM.

Hot Country TV’s 2018 International Artist Of The Year, Max T. Barnes, wrote his first hit song at the age of 19 with Vern Gosdin’s “Way Down Deep". 

He’s been topping the charts ever since including “Let Go of the Stone” by John Anderson, “At the Sound of the Tone” by Dukes of Hazard's John Schneider and “Before You Kill Us All” by Randy Travis.

Max has spent time at the top of the country music charts - 3 Weeks at #1 with “That’s How Your Love Makes Me Feel” by Diamond Rio and 3 Weeks at #1 with the smash hit - Colin Raye's “Love, Me”.

Max has gathered nine #1's and hits & dozens of cuts with album sales nearing 20 million.

“Love, Me", the career launching hit for Colin Raye, also took Max T. to the CMA awards as a “Song of the Year” Nominee. But Max T. did not win that time around because as fate had prevailed, he was up against his dad, legendary songwriter and Hall of  Fame member, the late Max D. Barnes.

His father took home the award that night with  “Look At Us”, a co-write with Vince Gill. “My poor mom didn’t know who to root for”, Max remembers.

MORE ABOUT JASON CAMPBELL Jason Campbell was born in a small town in Central Arkansas. At the early age of five years old his family noticed he had quite a talent , while playing an Elvis Presley record on the stereo, his mother heard him singing along in perfect pitch. Shortly he began singing at all the family gatherings, this began honing his talent as a entertainer. At the young age of 12 his mom and dad surprised him at Christmas with his first acoustic guitar. After learning to play he landed a few local gigs at pool halls and pubs close to his hometown of Perryville, Arkansas. Close to his nineteenth birthday he experienced his first bit of success when he won an audition to Ed McMahon's Star Search and was flown to Orlando Florida to perform with his band "County Line". When Jason decided to pursue the big move to Nashville, Tennessee he had no idea where it would take him, but shortly after his arrival he was signed to a writing deal with a local publishing company. Jason was then fortunate enough to write a couple of songs that Country Music Star Sammy Kershaw recorded on his 2002 Album titled "I Want My Money Back". Jason has opened for various artists such as Justin Moore, Mark Chestnut, David Allan Coe, Billy Currington, Mel McDaniel, Johnny Lee, Mickey Gilley, Restless Heart, Clint Black and many other artists throughout his career.
