BEAU+LUCI - Sister Duo Sensation
From Waycross, GA
By: Ron Holland - The Georgia Music Channel

BEAU   LUCI - The Next Organic Rock, Indie- Pop, Modern Country Sister Duo Sensation

Waycross, GA - "It's one thing to have amazing musical talent as an individual, but when artists
are able to double that talent as a duo, it's even more amazing. That's exactly what BEAU + LUCI
have done. As sisters, the two bring music to another level with their fantastic songwriting skills
and harmonious vocals," says Ron Holland of The Georgia Music Channel.

BEAU (16) + LUCI (19) grew up in Waycross, GA and have been harmoniously blending the
Organic Rock, Indie-Pop, and Modern Country Music genres with their own unique style since
their first EP release in 2013. Their "Momager," Allison, jokes about the girls being twins born
two-and-a-half years apart, specifically referring to the way the girls finish each other’s sentences
with an almost “sixth sense” of secret communication. However, Allison says, "Don't let that fool
you into thinking they're two-of-a-kind. BEAU + LUCI are as different as night and day. Through
their diversity, they complement each other, making them even more interesting and
unpredictable."

The duo began singing at their home church and were the co-founding members of the
Crossroads Youth Worship Band in late 2010, which is truly where their music journey began.
Since then, BEAU + LUCI have written over 150 songs, recorded 25 original tunes, released their
debut EP ("Rules of Society") and amassed an army of fans on Facebook and Twitter (with close
to 12,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter), while at the same time working charity events,
performing, writing, recording, launching their website (BEAUandLUCI.TV), establishing their
publishing company (Magic Monster Media), a management company (Mischief Management,
LLC), and their own grassroots BEAU + LUCI OneHeart Project, while partnering with local
businesses to form a platform for community awareness, humanitarian needs and promotions,
along with signing a multi-level marketing campaign with Grammy – nominated super producer
Trace Thomas (Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Maroon 5, Prince, The Rolling Stones,
Madonna, Pit Bull, Collective Soul, Jay-Z and many others) of Masterlab.com and the famed KDS
Studios.

Luci explained, "Working with Trace at KDS Studios and building our team is a dream come true.
Great things are coming and we couldn't be more excited about working with our management
and investment team."

Trace said, "BEAU + LUCI represent a compelling new entry into the Organic Rock, Indie-Pop, and
Modern Country Music arena with their debut. With their natural beauty, grace, and a touch of
sass, the chemistry was present from the start. There's a certain indescribable magic in these
girls that's only found in siblings, but not in every sibling group. I've only seen it once before,
when I worked with the Bee Gees, and it's something one can't put a finger on, but it's there."

These young ladies have also worked with Mark Dowdy (Barbara Mandrell, Conway Twitty, Ray
Stevens, Lee Greenwood, The Oak Ridge Boys and more), with over 20 years of experience as
an engineer, musician, artist and producer. BEAU + LUCI recorded their first EP ("Rules of
Society") on the Hollywood, CA rooftop studio of brothers Joel and Benji Madden, creators of the
platinum album band Good Charlotte. Luci said, "Sometimes it's like, did we really do that? Or
was it all a dream?” Beau added, "There's just no way to explain walking into a studio with awards
and music milestones on the walls and then working with the people who were part of the story.
Not to mention, the release of our EP was also an exciting accomplishment."

Their first EP, a mix of pop beats and heartfelt ballads, clearly introduces BEAU + LUCI's love of
music, family and musical diversity in style and technique. The song "First Kiss" reminds the
listeners of youthful days and carefree bliss with elements of classic rock-inspired guitar riffs. The
title track, "Rules of Society", pushes back on notions of normality and good-naturedly questions
socially accepted norms of popularity and success while declaring, "it's only one time you're
young and free." On "Trouble with Cupid", the girls find the little man is not the angel they thought
he was. Recorded in 2012 at Dirty Waters Studio, BEAU + LUCI worked with Jason Fleming
(George Clinton, Good Charlotte, Cindy Lauper, John Legend and others) and Jared "Ark Angel"
Poythress to produce their debut EP, "Rules of Society".

Get ready for BEAU + LUCI's debut album release (to be announced in the near future), an
exciting mix of music that will showcase the talented songwriters and harmonious vocal duo that is
the Georgia-based sister sensation, BEAU + LUCI.

The Peach Pickers
Country Songwriters Peach Pickers Ben Hayslip Dallas Davidson and Rhett Akins

Georgia native songwriters Dallas
Davidson, Ben Hayslip and Rhett
Akins have written hundreds of
songs together, not counting the
songs written without collaborat-
ing with each other that have hit
the charts by major country music
recording stars. The trio is known
as "The Peach Pickers".

Seventeen years ago Rhett Akins
charted several hits including,
"That Ain't My Truck", "Don't Get
Me Started" and "She Said Yes".
His son, Thomas Rhett, is now
following his dad's footsteps. He
has a #1 song on the charts, "It
Goes Like This".  His father was
the co-writer of this song. Read
more on Rhett here

Dallas Davidson was honored
recently with the 2013  ACM
Songwriter of the Year Award.
Outside of writing as a Peach
Picker, he's written and co-written
numerous #1 hits - "Runnin'
Outta Moonlight" (Randy Houser),
 "That's My Kind Of Night" (Luke
Bryan), "Boys Round Here"
(Blake Shelton) and the list goes
on and on. Amazing for a fellow
that had $700 in his pocket and a
dream heading to Nashville in an
old pickup truck to write country
songs several years ago. Read
more on Dallas here

Ben Hayslip played baseball in
college but he always dreamed of
writing songs in Nashville. His
dream came true and a host of
artists have recorded his songs -
Brooks and Dunn, Joe Nichols,
Blake Shelton, Josh Turner, Luke
Bryan and the list continues.
Read more on Ben here

The threesome together as The
Peach Pickers have a long list of
hits. To mention a few - "I Don't
Want This Night To End" (Luke
Bryan), "All Over Me" (Josh
Turner), "All About Tonight"
(Blake Shelton), "Gimme That
Girl" (Joe Nichols) and "Put A
Girl In It" (Brooks and Dunn) and
then there's over six top tens and
over nine top 40's.  It's hard to
keep count of their hits as they
continue to produce so many.
They've also received a long list
of major awards for their achieve-
ments.

Steve Hinson -
Nashville's Go-To
Guitar Man
Born in Macon, GA, Steve Hinson
is a natural born guitar man.  Re-
gardless if it's a steel guitar, an
electric, acoustic, slide, dobro, ukelele or whatever, Steve can
hammer down on it.  Of course,
his favorite and what you hear in
many songs that he's recorded
or played on stage with countless
artists is the steel guitar.

When he moved to Nashville in
1977, he began his career as a
studio musician and performer.
The credits for his work on
albums and tours with artists are
incredible.  Just to mention a few-
Luke Bryan, Josh Turner, Randy
Travis, Dolly Partin, Darryl Worley
Kenny Chesney and more...

The fans kept pouring in until
Washington Park in Macon was
packed to the brim to see the
legendary Percy Sledge.

Percy, born in Leighton, AL, was
an orderly for a hospital near
Muscle Shoals, AL. when he met
Alan Walden, co-founder of
Capricorn Records, publisher,
producer and artists manager, at
the hospital who told him, "Percy
you're going to be a star!" It was
shortly thereafter in 1966 that
Walden made good on his word
and helped Percy score one of
the greatest hit songs of all times
and a #1 hit on the Billboard R &
B charts - "When A Man Loves A
Woman". The song peaked at #4
in Europe on the charts and was
featured in a Levi Jeans commer-
cial. It's been covered by Michael
Bolton,  Bette  Midler  Barbara
Mandrell, Jerry Butler, Art Gar-
funkel and others. The hit was
shown as #54  on  The Rolling

career.

Thomas Fountain - lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Gaylon Mathews   - steel pedal/dobro
Drew Lawson        - electric & upright bass
Blake Mincey        - drums
Grant Reynolds    - lead guitar
Alan Sanders        - lead guitar

Simply put, Thomas Fountain is a rising star in a state known for producing huge country artists. Born and raised in the mountains of North Georgia, this Ball Ground native has seen his career take off in 2014. Thomas has been entertaining audiences for several years but decided in 2013 to take a different direction with his music. He wanted to write, record, and perform his own material. The response to that life altering decision was astounding. In just his first year as a solo artist, Thomas was a Finalist for Georgia Country Artist of the year (1 of 6), toured 6 states, recorded his first EP, performed live on T.V., and his songs hit large market radio, among many other accomplishments. He is quickly gaining recognition as both an entertainer and songwriter.


Remembering Joel Mathis


Joel Mathis, singer/songwriter from Valdosta, GA, played the local scene for several years before hitting the Nashville recording studios and charting some songs on the Billboard country charts. He later toured Chicago and various cities, but always remembered his Valdosta, GA roots and the fans that helped him make it to Nashville.  Learn more about Joel and his contributions to Georgia music.

Riley Biederer Signs Publishing Deal
With Sony / ATV

The Georgia Music Channel
Listen To My Full Interview With Riley

Photo Credit: David Duong / Pixelslick Designs

Riley Biederer has signed a publishing agreement with the
world's largest  publishing company, Sony/ATV.   Biederer,
the recipient of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Horizon
Award in  2012 and signed by Elton John's Rocket Music,
has over 200 songs she has written or co-written that was
included in the  deal with Sony/ATV.  Making it super
special, the signing came on her 18th birthday. She said,
"it was so amazing and I also just got a new car because
of that, so it was super amazing. I've been waiting to buy a
car for about two years, so I finally got to."  Signing with
Sony/ATV is an amazing accomplishment for a young artist
that's never released music commercially or had a publish-
ing deal in the past.
 
Riley has co-written songs with several Nashville chart buster
songwriters such as Bob Dipiero, Liz Rose and numerous
other major songwriters. She told me, "I'd actually written
with Bob a few times, the first time I did it I wrote with just
me and him, and he's super and nice and really funny, the
experience was really like easy and yea, that was the first
time we did a couple of songs together and they were really
great songs. The second time I wrote with him and Liz Rose
who's close friends and mentor to Taylor Swift and did a lot
of the work on her  "Fearless" album so that was really awe-
some because I've always wanted to write with her. It was
really fun, it was super honoring to write with them and they
are really amazing at what they do and it was kind of inspiri-
ng."

Riley continues to perform live at various venues having
appeared in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago,  Atlanta and
several other cities. 

We salute and congratulate Riley on her recent signing with
Sony/ATV.  Click on the audio above to listen to my full inter-
view with Riley.

Country's Not So Countrywide: Why
South Georgia Is Country's New Epicenter
By Billy Dukes
Georgia Music Artists Rock Country Music

Our apologies to Brantley Gilbert, but today’s country music is not as country wide as he claims. It’s actually limited to about 18 states, a half-dozen of which really dominate what we hear on country radio. Put a pin on an American map for the city of origin of every artist with a song on this week’s Top 50 airplay chart and you’ll find that — to borrow the title from an awful Lindsey Lohan movie — Georgia rules!

Specifically, southern Georgia rules. Six artists grew up between Macon, Ga. and the Florida border, including recent CMA Entertainer of the Year nominees Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean, plus promising newcomers Kip Moore and Thomas Rhett (by extension, this also includes super hot songwriter Rhett Akins, his father). Head north toward Atlanta, and you’ll find the hometowns of two-thirds of Lady Antebellum (Augusta), Zac Brown, Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line and Gilbert (Jefferson, Ga.).

Corey  Smith  releases  his  new  single,  "Aint Going  Out
Tonight". Corey connected with famed producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band, George Jones) to work with on his ninth album.



Georgia country music artist Corey Smith was born and
raised in Jefferson, GA. He's sold over a million digital
singles and over 250,000 records independently.

After playing many nights in bars and grills, Corey graduated
college, got married and settled down and started teaching
high school.  He would play songs for his students and to
his surprise they loved it.  Corey says his initial fan base
following came from playing for the students.

His first album, " Undertones", included the single "Twenty
One" which charted on the Billboard Country Songs chart in
2011 when he included it on the album "Broken Record".
The album hit the number 17 position on the country albums
chart.

This was the start of the career that Corey really wanted -
songwriting and singing.  His first moment of getting that
special "tingling" feeling was at a performance at a bar in
Dahlonega, GA that he'd never performed at before. He had
sold about 100 copies of his first album that originally had
Twenty One on it and it was spreading through various
college towns where he'd played. He thought there might be
15 - 20 people at the bar and since he'd not played that bar
he thought the crowd would want him to play his standard
cover songs, which he was doing at the time.  To his
surprise, there were over 200 people. He opened the show
with his first song and everybody started singing it.  It floored
him that everybody knew his music and sent chills down his
spine with joy.

In 2005 he headlined The Georgia Theater in Athens (The
Zac Brown Band opened the show.)  Everywhere he played
the crowds were swelling and his shows were selling out. He
states that in the last five years, he's played over 700 shows
throughout the USA, sold over 700,000 tickets and grossed
over $9 million in revenue. He's done all of that without a
record label and bypassed Nashville all together.  He relates
his success to writing songs that have genuine, truthful
meaning to people and just being himself. And of course a
lot of hard work.

Corey now tours throughout the country. He'll be appearing
with Brett Eldridge, Toby Keith, Eli Young Band, Darryl
Worley, Hunter Hayes, The Band Perry, Justin Moore,
Darrius Rucker, Love & Theft and others this year.

A Look Back On The
Atlanta Rhythm Section
Atlanta Rhythm Section Dean Daughtry Paul Goddard Steve Stone Rodney Justo Jim Keeling

A group with over 30 years of songwriting and performances
has inspired many other artists - that group is The Atlanta
Rhythm Section. With big hits like "Champagne Jam", "So
Into To  You", Imaginary Lover",  "Spooky" and 15 albums,
the 1970's was buzzing with the love for their music. 

It all started in Doraville, a suburb of Atlanta, when Atlanta
engineer Rodney Mills, music publisher Bill Lowery, producer
Buddie Buie and songwriter and guitarist J. R. Cobb got
together to form Studio One. Studio One became THE studio
to record in Atlanta for numerous music artists.

      The   Georgia
                      Music Channel

It's  our  mission to  preserve the  history  of  Georgia  music

through  education,  information  and  entertainment - it's  all
about Georgia music artists and those having  a  connection
to Georgia.  We cover a wide spectrum of genres -  Country
music, Rock music, Pop music,  R & B / Soul Music  and  so
many other genres.  We've begun also  listing  non-perform-
ing artists to the Georgia Music Artists page- like producers,
managers, etc. and have opened a page  for up-and-coming
musicians. We  are constantly adding artists that have made
a  contribution  to   GA  music  to  the  Georgia Music Artists
page.  The   list  will  never  be  complete, as  we're fortunate
to   have an  abundance of music artists from  Georgia.  Feel
free   to  make  recommendations   for  artists  you'd   like  to
see listed  by contacting us  @ The Georgia Music Channel.

Remember, we include music artists that have a  connection
to Georgia. For example, you  may  see  a  video  or  hear  a
song by an artist  like  Elvis, who  apparently  never  lived  in
Georgia.  However in this case, if  the  video  or  song  is  "In
The   Ghetto"  or   "Don't  Cry  Daddy",  these   are   relevant
because   Mac  Davis  (a Georgia music artist)  wrote   those
songs.  Therefore, it's  Mac  Davis and  his  work  that  we're
recognizing.  This is an example  of  the  depth  of  the  work
by  music  artists  from  Georgia  and  how   we   honor  and
recognize their contriubution to Georgia music.
