Drew Parker“Aside from his cowboy hat and boots, Drew Parker is the definition of true country. He is genuine, honest, and carries an old soul that resonates with many.”
It takes some folks 10 years to make a name for themselves in Music City, but in the three short years that Drew Parker has lived in Nashville, TN, he has been able to accomplish things he never dreamed were possible.
Coming from a small, unincorporated town of Stewart, Georgia (located in Covington, Georgia), Parker began singing at age 3 in front of small church crowds. Over the years, he began to build his confidence and, at age 14, he decided to pick up a guitar and teach himself how to play songs from his inspirations, such as Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, and Alan Jackson. At age 18, he expanded his musical abilities and learned to play piano, both of which he still uses today to craft lyrics and rhymes into songs.
Parker made the move to Nashville, Tennessee in 2015 and signed a publishing deal with RiverHouse/WarnerChappell in September of 2017. He is a co-writer on Luke Combs’ debut platinum record “This Ones For You”, Jake Owen’s single “Homemade” and Luke Combs’ “1,2 Many”.
Aside from his cowboy hat and boots, Drew Parker is the definition of true country. He is genuine, honest, and carries an old soul that resonates with many. He is on the rise and sees no end in sight.
Sarah A Turner
What’s in the name? Well, the answer is personal for country singer- songwriter Sarah Allison Turner. Born in the mountains of Bluefield, West Virginia, her unique moniker came from parents who thought “it sounded like a cool stage name,” she says with a laugh. It is no surprise music has been a part of Sarah’s destiny from the beginning.
Her first memory of music is her dad playing cover songs on the guitar at 4 years old. She began piano lessons the same year and honed her skill for singing in church where her grandfather was the pastor. A few years later she started her first band and while they never performed a single show together, it was then that Sarah knew music was always going to be part of her life —she just didn’t quite know how. “Music was something I was always around,” says the woman who calls Loretta Lynn her hero. “Besides my dad playing and singing around the house, I’m pretty sure everyone in my family can play an instrument and sing. It’s like a Turner family rite of passage or something.”
