Cody McCarver:
Cody spent over a decade with country music super-group, Confederate Railroad, eventually leaving to start his own solo career. This career was extremely lucrative with numerous accolades - including three number one videos’ on CMT Pure Country and earning the title of Independent Artist of the Year from Music Row Magazine.

Throughout his career, Cody has shared the stage with legends such as Charlie Daniels, David Allan Coe, Merle Haggard and more. His solo career saw his music topping the charts and even being featured in several motion pictures, which led to McCarver acting in several western films. His solo music has featured guest appearances by Colt Ford and The Oak Ridge Boys’ Richard Sterban.

The bright lights of fame and fortune brought many enjoyable things but it also exposed Cody to a very dark side. “Here I was with everything I could imagine,” states Cody, “but something was missing and I was miserable. So, I started filling that void with Jack Daniels, who became my best friend, every single day.” Cody’s life began to spiral out of control. “I was headed for death,” says Cody. “I knew something had to change…so I went to church.” Cody searched and found joy in his renewed relationship with God. Cody says: “God let me know that He never left me and He was with me the entire time.”

Billy Crain:
I've played in front of 1,100,000 people in Washington, D.C. on the fourth of July, and performed for no one in a club called The Losers on Christmas Eve. I learned how to play guitar from the best, my brother Tommy Crain. I got to see Duane Allman, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Albert King, and Jimmy Page perform during my teen years. I've shared the stage with The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Halen, ZZ Top, The Cars, The Marshall Tucker band, The Allman Brothers Band, The Charlie Daniels Band, Molly Hatchet, Merle Haggard, George Strait, Jerry Lee Lewis, and all the heroes of old. I've played a show using Duane Allman's Les Paul, recorded using Steve Gaines Stratocaster, and am the proud owner of my brother's beloved Gold Top Les Paul. I've stayed up all night flipping quarters with Gregg Allman, jammed with Dicky Betts on "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" into the wee hours on a snowy night in a hotel room in Philadelphia, and almost had the bottom half of my left ear bitten off by Allen Collins. Keith Urban spent his first Thanksgiving in the USA at Mama Crain's house and oh yeah, I drank whiskey with Jimmy Page. I've stood onstage with a Blues Brother named Dan Ackroyd, traveled in Econoline Vans, Silver Eagles, puddle jumper airplanes, and toured the world many times over. I've recorded with little known acts at the time like Shania Twain and The Dixie Chicks. I've received royalty checks for as little as 15 cents, and as big as $80,000. I've been an Outlaw, a Bellamy Brother, a Music Row songwriter, producer, and session guitar player. I've won multiple songwriter awards, received multi-platinum sales awards, and ended up shoveling horse**** to pay my child support. I have been saved by the Grace of God, been a foster parent, a humanitarian to Haiti, buried my brother, and my parents, got sued, helped my wife survive cancer, adopted two young children, and had to retire indefinitely from the road for health reasons, all in a two year period. I still love to play guitar, write songs, and make records. I love Jesus, my wife, and four children, and that's about all you need to know about me......
