The Dugger Band, brothers (Jordan and Seth), are the sons of pastors devoted to a small Tennessee community nestled at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains. Natives of Greeneville, TN, just an hour northeast of Knoxville and neighboring the birthplaces of Dolly Parton and Kenny Chesney, Jordan and Seth began their singing career performing worship songs at their parents’ church. Both graduates of the University of Tennessee (Jordan studied Architecture and Seth graduated with a degree in Finance), the young performers, who are equally talented on multiple instruments, formed Dugger Band as official in 2011. The duo made its debut in the country music format with, FLY, three short years later (November 2014). With a contemporary and spirited country/rock/pop flavor, Dugger Band spotlights the music that captivated them throughout their youth (Merle Haggard/Ricky Skaggs/Brad Paisley/Justin Timberlake/Michael Jackson) making the duo’s LIVE show a hot ticket.
The Aaron Walker Band – “Play ‘em the kind of country they want to hear!” The Aaron Walker Band has been doing just that, while also entertaining people across the southeast since its formation only three years ago. In that short time, this group of guys from East Tennessee has been writing, performing, and building an audience throughout the country, playing both Nashville Broadway Honky-Tonks and to sold out historic arenas, such as The Cotton Eyed Joe (Knoxville, TN) and Dallas Bull (Tampa, FL.) The band has had the privilege of not only opening for long standing acts like Colt Ford, but also touring with other big acts, most recently, Ryan Upchurch’s “Mud to Gold” Tour. Influenced by classic country/rock artists, such as Montgomery Gentry, Hank Williams Jr., Cody Jinks, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and even 90’s grunge rock bands, like Nirvana, Puddle Of Mudd, and Nickelback, the Aaron Walker Band’s sound falls on a versatile spectrum. Not only has the band paved its own lane in the country genre, but it has also incorporated a unique, raw presence, which some say may be lacking in today’s country music.
