Congratulations are in order for Bart Crow who was named one of 10 new country artists you need to know in February by Rolling Stone magazine.

Of course, we here at Kickin' Country 103.1 have known Bart for quite sometime. He told Rolling Stone even tho he's been around quite sometime, he's still proud of the support he's gotten from family and fans,

"We've run and gunned on pennies and empty rooms for so long that it can only go up. When you see these things happening it's interesting, because on paper it's beautiful and I'm so proud and my dad's proud and my wife's proud and it's an awesome thing. But it's like, I'm still cut from that road-warrior cloth that. . . I'll be even more proud when everywhere we play, there's a line out the door."

Here's to more lines out the door Bart and good luck!
