Wakefield Welcomes Back Wakefield Party Favorite ANGIE K
The El Salvador born and Georgia raised country artist just released her new viral single ‘Country is as Country Does’ (video filmed right here in northeast Nebraska!), which has immediately been added to 6 editorial mega-playlists on Apple Music and Spotify. This song comes right on the heels of her single 'Real Talk', which catapulted her onto the country scene by making her a 'Highway Find' on Sirius XM The Highway.
Special Guest Baker Grissom
Originally from Sherwood, Arkansas, Baker Grissom, moved to Nashville in 2014 to pursue a childhood dream of writing songs like the ones he heard on the radio. Baker vividly remembers falling in love with country music for the first time while riding with his dad to his dirt track races, “Dad would always turn the volume up a couple notches when George Strait came on.”
In 2018, Baker was introduced to fellow Arkansan, Adam Hambrick, after winning a local songwriting competition. Adam then quickly introduced Baker to RED Creative Group, who signed him to a publishing deal just a few months later.
Since signing with RED, Baker has collaborated with songwriting greats such as Casey Beathard, Mark Irwin, Cole Taylor, Big Al Anderson, and Wynn Varble. In June of 2019, Baker released his debut EP, "Saturdays And Sunday", which caught the attention of many tastemakers in the country music industry. That fall, Baker began touring with Adam Hambrick, Jon Langston and other great country acts.
