SUSAN HICKMAN's music is a blend of rocking, uplifting country that's drawing comparisons to Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Allison Moorer.  Susan's live shows are energetic, and she's shared the stage with Tracy Byrd, Jo Dee Messina, The Lost Trailers and Phil Vassar. She's released five European singles, including her recent Top 5 international hit, "Sunday Paper." Her current single, a      re-make of the Allman Brothers' classic, "Whipping Post," showcases the bluesy side of this sultry-voiced singer.  The track is from her CD, SUSAN HICKMAN, just released internationally in December.(  


LIZ TALLEY, already a European favorite,takes listeners back to the glory days of the Texas Dancehall when twin fiddles and steel guitars ruled the night.  A drummer since the age of 14, Liz has kept the beat for Tommy Cash, Wanda Jackson, Tony Booth and Barbara Fairchild.  As a soloist, Liz hLiz Talley ( credit: Jennifer Fails)as opened for Mel Tillis, Eddy Raven, Gene Watson and George Jones. Her current single is the bouncy, tongue-in-cheek "Johnny Getting Out of Jail Barbeque" from her most-recent CD, MORE THAN SATISFIED. (        




JODY BOOTH is creating a stir, not just in his native Texas, but in Nashville as Jody Booth bxw (credit Melanie Hall)well.  His current single, "Gold Digger," is a country-as-dirt, two-steppin' tribute to "high-maintenance women - and the poor fools who love 'em." His upcoming CD, HEAVEN AND HELL, is a 12-track tour-de-force offering up the soul-baring truths of Kristofferson paired with vocal abilities reminiscent of Haggard or Jones.  He humbly admits to opening for Willie Nelson, Tracy Lawrence, Jack Ingram and Roger Creager.  (
