Ash Bowers Is This Weeks Featured Artist On A1-Country, Lightning Country Radio

Besides playing bars and honky-tonks all over the U.S., he scored opening slots on two of the biggest new tours in country music: Jason Aldean’s Wide Open Tour and Eric Church’s Young and Wilder Tour. His songwriting also captured the attention of Wide Open Music Group president, Steve Williams, who approached him to record an album for the newly formed Wide Open Records. “Of course I was up for it,” Ash beams. He hit the studio with a vision and the same blue-collar work ethic he had at Tennessee Tractor. In order to maintain his musical integrity, he co-produced the project with Noel Golden and Billy Decker. He also kept writing songs and what he didn’t keep for his own project, was quickly snatched up by artists like Randy Houser, Bucky Covington and score of independent artists who see in Ash what they want for themselves...warm, energetic, catchy tunes that emanate from a hard-working, heartland mindset that reminds you how real life makes real good music. But now it’s his turn to shine. “A good friend once told me, ‘Ash, I’ve been in this town for a long time, but ain’t nobody in the world better at being you than you. So, that’s what you need to do.’ And he’s exactly right.” Listen for Ash to be Featured on A1-Country, Lightning Country Radio starting Sunday.

Jeff Jacobs Band Our Featured Artist Starting Sunday June 9, 2013 On A1-Country, Lightning Country

The Jeff Jacobs Band is a rockin' Texas quintet that blends country, rock, and a little southern spice to create a sound like no other. While guitar driven you will hear the songs blended well with vocal harmonies as well as some steel guitar and the occasional mandolin. The rhythm section stays tight in the pocket to compliment all the creative sounds coming out of the guitar trio. Original songs are the way of this band. You may here an occasional cover but the passion of the band members has them constantly working on and performing their own creative material. A very eclectic group that pound for pound can take the stage with just about any group in the scene.

The Jeff Jacobs Band was formed in San Antonio by veteran musicians Jeff Jacobs and Nathan Schmidt in the winter of 2012. Both were in previous Texas bands such as Vendetta Mind, Distorted Reality, Thumbs Revenge, and Jeff Lubin and the Jtrain. Jeff and Nathan wanted to form an original band unlike what they have been hearing in the scene. Jeff posted an online ad looking for musicians. CJ Gore (Rockus Circus, The Standouts) answered the ad and Jeff went to see him perform. Jeff then invited CJ to take part in a jam session with Nathan and himself. The three hit it off and were ready to get the train down the tracks. Shortly after words Gil Ramirez answered the same ad and joined the group. He was a perfect fit. The guys rehearsed a handful of times and felt that something was missing from the group. Jeff decided to call up his friend and former band mate Jeff Cox. After one rehearsal the group knew he was the right man for the job. The Jeff Jacobs band continues to rehearse and is taking their show on the road.
