Whitey Johnson is a blues singer/songwriter from Texas, now living in Tennessee and touring worldwide. There are many versions of Whitey’s story, but one known fact is that his alternate persona Gary Nicholson has written songs that have been recorded by the greatest artists in blues music including BB King, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Keb Mo, Etta James, Delbert McClinton, Eric Clapton, Greg Allman, Irma Thomas, the Neville Brothers, Gatemouth Brown, John Mayall, James Cotton, The Blues Brothers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Marcia Ball, and so many others. He has produced five Delbert McClinton projects, two winning Grammys for “Best Contemporary Blues”.

Lee Roy Parnell is part of a long line of Texas roots-music eclectics and is among the elite few who can be identified as a triple threat. An ace guitarist, as well as a distinctive singer, and hit songwriter, his music runs the gamut of diversity. Combining the influences of Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, and Gospel, Parnell’s sound defies conventional classification. He draws from a broad range of musical sources and combines them with seamless dexterity and, unlike many other hard-to-pigeonhole artists, Parnell has enjoyed a run of success on the country and blues charts.

Jack Pearson was born in Nashville, TN and is a former member of The Allman Brothers Band. He has worked with music legends from the world of jazz, rock, blues and country including Gregg Allman, Vince Gill, Jimmy Buffett, Tommy Emmanuel, Delbert McClinton, Earl Scruggs, Chris LeDoux, Amy Grant, Mac McAnally, Groove Holmes, Faith Hill, Jimmy Hall, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Gov’t Mule, Buddy DeFranco, T. Graham Brown, Shelby Lynne, Vassar Clements, Bonnie Bramlett, The Jordanaires, Kirk Whalum, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and the list goes on and on.
