8pm: Bryan Hayes is touring coast to coast in promotion of his latest recording. He crafts personal narratives with a novelist's eye (“Let's Ride”) and a poet's elegance (“Small Town Amazing Grace”). Hayes frequently delivers keen insight with earthy elegance. “We break out those old CDs and do our best to sing along,” he sings on the buoyant opener “Let's Ride.” “We fumble through the verses and shout the chorus loud and strong/With both those speakers blaring Guy Clark and John Prine/Baby, tonight let's ride.” The song effectively serves as a blueprint for the Memphis songwriter's career: Free your mind. Loose inspiration within. Let music speak.

Folks notice. “Not only does Bryan craft a great song with melody and music, but more importantly he crafts a great story with his lyrics and he sings them the only way he knows how – from his heart,” says Andy Hunt, the celebrated Grammy-winning, Nashville-based producer. Frequent Guy Clark collaborator Noel McKay echoes: “Bryan Hayes' songs always come from that sincere place that seems to effortlessly draw the listener in. He is among the rare songwriters truly capable of channeling life experience into great, listenable songs.” Bryan recently opened shows for James McMurtry, Billy Joe Shaver, Turnpike Troubadours, and Randy Houser. He's been nominated for the 2015 Americana Music Awards for his album "Still Just A Man...10 Years Later" and was selected as Official Showcase Artist for 2015 Folk Alliance International Conference.
