Exciting Country Groups
Green Light’s country bands include award-winning artists that put on high-energy shows that always leave audiences begging for more. Whether you need entertainment for an important corporate event, fair, festival, concert, or party, we offer country bands that will be a perfect addition to your celebration. For the best in country music bands, you won’t go wrong with one of our experienced groups.
Artie Hemphill, Nathan Osmond, Mark Owens, Sam Riddle, Mister Pickins, Due West, and Chance McKinney are artists molded in the tradition of the best. Aaron Copland’s “Rodeo” is great for the symphony hall, but these six extraordinary artists perform their own brand of country music with much more authenticity.
Our Hottest Country Music Bands
It takes extraordinary musicians to adequately express in song the challenges and emotions of life. The mighty Chris LeDoux used to sing about such things, but now he’s gone. Fortunately, good ol’ Utah has bred some great country bands and performers, contenders for the legacy of the Western Underground and the legendary LeDoux.
Artie Hemphill, Charley Jenkins, & Sam Riddle
Country artist Artie Hemphill is one of the finest vocalists you’ll hear among all the country vocalists in the Intermountain West. His rich baritone speaks to true cowboys in a way that few others, even at a national level, can duplicate. And this was never more evident than when Artie and Iron Horse won the 2011 Stadium of Fire Talent Search in front of a frenzied crowd of fifty thousand screaming fans.
Though Artie Hemphill would qualify to perform anywhere in Nashville, he and Iron Horse are available throughout the west for concerts, fairs, festivals, weddings, and corporate events. This is one of our most popular country bands.
Country Singer Charley Jenkins is quickly winning the attention of fans everywhere with his hard-driving, energetic show and infectiously-catchy music. You won’t find any live country music bands better than what you’ll see when Charley and his high-voltage band steps on stage.
Energetic Sam Riddle is an incredible live entertainer and will blow you away with his rich smoky vocals and high-energy performances. Sam fronts one of the most exciting country bands today and is attracting new fans like crazy wherever he plays. He will get you hooked on his catchy original toe-tappin’ tunes, amazing showmanship, and larger-than-life personality. Sam is one hot commodity, so be sure to book Sam early and avoid disappointment.
Nathan Osmond, Chance McKinney, & Mark Owens
Country star Nathan Osmond, voted “Best Local Country Artist” in Utah, has been delivering high-energy, crowd-pleasing performances to enthusiastic audiences all over the world. Nathan has opened for Carrie Underwood, Collin Raye, and Patty Loveless, but is now putting together a national tour as the headliner. Thanks to his four recent number 1 hits, Nathan is on a fast track to super stardom and is one of the most exciting stage performers today.
According to Wikipedia, an industrialized country has a “high level of development.” “Industrialized” award-winning country singer Chance McKinney takes a genre known for drawl and twang and develops it without ever losing the connection to its roots. A Chance McKinney concert is enjoyed by fans of country, rock, and pop alike.
Chance McKinney is a newcomer to Utah, and a natural showman. He puts on a concert so energetic and entertaining that we reckon he’s even gained fans from among rappers, opera devotees, and the hardest audience of all to satisfy: high school students. This is one of those country bands that even the most famous bands wished they sounded like.
Country artist Mark Owens is a fast-rising star on the country scene. And it’s easy to see why – his country voice is one of the best around and even some of the big name stars would kill to have a voice that sounded as rich and full as Mark’s. He fronts one of the most popular country western bands in Utah, and for good reason – he specializes in live performance and always puts on a show that crowds love and appreciate.
Due West, Mister Pickins, & Bootleg Blvd
Thanks to Due West’s breakout hit single I Get That All The Time, country music fans are lining up in droves to see them perform live. Matt Lopez, Brad Hull, and Tim Gates are three talented songwriters and performers who demonstrate at every concert why they’re here for the long haul and why they are one of the best country bands around. Country sensation Due West, with their tight harmonies and catchy tunes, are propelling them upward at breakneck speed.
The Mister Pickins country dance band is a country song machine. We’ll wager they can play more tunes than a jukebox and they’re a lot more fun. The six song-shooters in Mister Pickins can play for six straight hours (or probably even longer) without repeating a tune, and their classic and contemporary country/rock combination earns them repeat invitations wherever they perform. This country band has high entertainment value for fairs, festivals, weddings, and corporate events.
The Bootleg Blvd band is a popular Utah country cover band, playing everyone’s favorite country tunes. Whether you’re putting together an outdoor festival, fair, private party, or other special event, this fun Utah country band is just what the horse doctor ordered. With their extensive song list of popular country music tunes, they’ll keep your guests dancing all night long.
Rising Country Superstars
Rising star Gwen Sebastian, Firefly, and Maddie Wilson are all on a fast track to the top in the country world. Gwen was a popular finalist on the hit TV show The Voice. Her music has been called “contemporary country music with spunk” and her first single became an overnight sensation, reaching the top 25 on the Music Row Breakout chart.
Country Pop sensation Firefly combines beautiful country radio voices, cover girl looks and some impressive songwriting chops, an unbeatable combination. Watch out for this talented group of gals because there’s no stopping them on the road to superstardom.
Singer Maddie Wilson is only a teenager, but is quickly getting noticed by country fans all over the world now that her debut single has reached #1 on the Indie Country Charts. Keep an eye on this talented young singer and songwriter because she’s going places.
