Sarah Hobbs is the sound of old school traditional country with a little bit of modern twist. From an early age music has played an important part of Sarah’s life and also for many generations of her family. As an independent artist from Northeast Texas, she writes her own songs from the life experiences she’s had, both good and bad, so when she sings, you can guarantee its from the heart. Her strong East Texas accent reflects in her singing voice, leaving no doubt you’re listening to real country music.

Damon began singing at an early age and started writing his own lyrics as a teenager. At the age of 20, after learning to play guitar, he began playing at local bars and venues in his hometown of Moulton, Tx and surrounding areas. In 2013 he started a band with some local musicians. Over the last few years the band has evolved to its current state. Damon Curtis just finished up the studio work for his first album. He and the band are very excited about the release of their first EP. Damon’s debut single from that EP, Heart of Stone, is available on his website, damoncurtis.com.

Raised in SE Texas, Donice learned to play the guitar at the age of six. His inspiration to sing professionally came around the time that Mark Chesnutt and Tracy Byrd were both singing in a local bar in Beaumont, Tx called Cutter’s. Donice played with several bands and eventually joined a group that fit his traditional style, Twangsters Union.  Recently, Donice recorded his self-titled debut album with producer Trent Willmon in Nashville. Having spent much of his life honing his craft and paying his dues, Donice Morace is eager to launch the next chapter of his career.

After a successful career as a collegiate baseball player in 2011 Grimes was given a chance to appear on a new reality TV show called “The Voice” airing on NBC. Having nothing to lose he auditioned for the show and ended up finishing in the top 10 under Coach Ceelo Green (no, not Blake Shelton). In 2014, Grimes and his hit single “Home to Me” was picked up by national salon chain “Supercuts” and placed in the mainstream spotlight. To date, Grimes has 6 #1 songs under his belt and has played hundreds of shows across the US. His most recent album “Undeniably Country” was released in November of 2016 and debuted at #16 on Billboard Heatseekers. The album features songs such as fan favorite “From Where I’m Standing” co-penned by Chris Janson and his most recent #1 single “Right About Now”.

When you stand in front of the stage at a Saints Eleven show, your senses are overrun by contrasting elements that hook your attention and keep you there.  Your ears are seduced by the sounds of vintage honky tonk music mixed with electrified bluegrass, but the rest of your senses are taken hostage by three guys who play with an energy fueled by years of punk and hard rock influence.  The very first thing anyone will talk about when the topic of Saints Eleven comes up is their live show moxie.  Each show is delivered as if it were their very last one, and their fans give that energy right back to them in equal amounts creating an exchange that makes you feel like you are caught in the crossfires of a waged battle.   In the current age of pop country music where band members are of the glossy “pretty boys” variety that can be easily mistaken for GQ models, Jeff Grossman, Jeff Mosley and Alex Shepherd sport a more chiseled, blue-collar physique.  The only thing that is polished about them is the combined savvy they employ with their instruments.

Case Hardin, a native son of San Angelo, Texas, grew up with a ranching and rodeo background while developing a love for traditional and neo-traditional country music. Case began his music career his senior year of high school in 2013, and hasn’t looked back since his American Idol debut that same year. Backed by his band, their influences are very recognizable in the way that they play, from traditional honky-tonk music, to more progressive Texas music.In Case’s short career in music, he has already played many Texas rodeos, music festivals, and dancehalls. Case Hardin released his debut album, “Over Fort Worth,” made with George Strait’s, Aaron Watson’s, Cory Morrow’s, William Clark Green’s, and Kevin Fowler’s band. “Deep Blue Me” is the first single from his accredited album and is being played on radio airwaves across the state.

Adrian Johnston, Dallas native and fourth generation Texan, is paying close attention to the passage of time these days. Whether she’s quickly touring the state on a whirlwind of gigs or radio stops, or pausing long enough to revel in her family’s deep Texas roots (her great grandfather was a cotton farmer in west Texas and a baseball player who played against Babe Ruth!), she fully realizes that time seems to stand still while rushing past you simultaneously. Seeing that the time is now to make a mark in the Texas Country Music scene, Johnston has spent the last several years winning over fans and industry with her southern drawl and charming them with resounding vocals by bringing a bold voice that is unmatched in today’s country music.“I like to put on a high-energy show, but I’m just as fulfilled sitting with a guitar in a silent listening room,” she said. “No matter the venue, the band and I like to make sure everyone is having a good time and connect with the crowd from the first song to the last.”

Cody Joe Hodges
Wednesday, April 25 at 8:00pmCody Joe is a small town country boy with big dreams from Caldwell, Texas. He started playing music at an early age, but it wasn’t until his senior year in high school that Cody Joe became serious about his art. Impassioned by country greats from the 70’s and 80’s, Cody Joe wrote his first song, “Daddy’s Dream”, his freshman year in the dorms at Texas A&M University in College Station.Not long after graduating from Texas A&M in 2006, Cody Joe took off to Nashville, without a place to stay, a job, or knowing anyone. However, he was fortunate to find a place to stay with pedal steel player Jay Andrews and a job on Broadway at Crossroads, Legends Corner and The Stage. After only a short stint in Music City, he moved back to Texas, and eventually joined the Army. While in the Army, Hodges was discovered singing on the street corner and was asked to try out for the group “Harmony in Motion,” a vocal ensemble based out of Fort Carson, Colorado. He made the audition with “Daddy’s Dream” and “The Star Spangled Banner” and began traveling across America playing for private Army functions and large entertainment venues.Upon discharge, Cody Joe entered the Energy Field as a Power Lineman, the same occupation his father had for 35 years. At the same time, he was moonlighting with the band “Cody Hodges & The Linemen”, They released an album in 2012, but broke up shortly after the release. The spring of 2013 brought winds of change as Cody Joe said goodbye to his lineman buddies and turned to focus on his music. So far, it has been a blessing as he continues to put out his own brand of country music.Cody Joe is a traditionalist in the sense that he loves the sound of traditional country; good, old-fashioned story-telling songs.His music has been described as “outlaw country/country classic”, with a large influence of the country greats. Cody Joe’s voice ranges from silky smooth to raspy seduction and rarely will you find someone that reaches across the aisle to both the old and new generations, but Cody Joe Hodges does it every time.
