Artist of the Week – John Christopher Way
I am looking forward to a live broadcast this Saturday, Sept. 12th at the Little River Club and hearing the John Christopher Way Band live on the stage.
We are going to have a lot of fun. The Little River Club has a great dance floor and that's a good thing, especially when you have a performer like John coming to town.
As a followup to his last album 'Second Chance', John is about to release a new single on Monday,September 14th called 'Painting Over The Pain'.
John was born in Kerrville, Texas and comes from a musical family. His dad played fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and banjo professionally. John is certainly following in his footsteps playing fiddle since he was 3 years old, then picking up the bass guitar and drums, then learning to play the guitar, all by his 11th birthday.
He was still in high school in 1996 when he was awarded the 'Texas Heritage Award' which he accepted on stage while opening for Willie Nelson.
John spent about seven years in Nashville working with some of the top names in the business both as a writer, and performer. He has won numerous songwriter competitions.
Some of his major influences include Steve Wariner, Vince Gill, Gene Watson, Alan Jackson, and George Strait to name a few.
Check out the above video of his song 'Mudd' and get ready for a good time this Saturday night at The Little River Club with John Christopher Way. Kickin' Country 103.1 will be broadcasting live.
