2024 LINEUP

Isaac Cole Pic 1.jpg

Country music singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Isaac Cole first captured the nation’s attention when he earned a spot as a finalist on FOX’s “American Idol” Season XV in 2016 as a fifteen-year-old. He had already been noticed by the Gretsch guitar company that has endorsed the artist since the age of fourteen.  Originally from northwestern Pennsylvania, Isaac was also the second youngest solo artist ever inducted into the Wheeling Jamboree, which is the nation’s second longest running country music show behind only the Grand Old Opry.  He was second to music superstar Brad Paisley, and they were both taught lead guitar by the same teacher, Mr. Roger Hoard. 

After graduating from high school, Isaac made the move to Nashville to pursue a music career.  In 2019, he spent the year as a full-time utility musician at Dollywood Theme Park.  He played acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo, fiddle, and harmonica.  After working there for only a month, he was given the honor of playing guitar for Dolly Parton herself.  He returned to Nashville in when he turned 21, and has been performing and songwriting around Nashville for the past couple of years, and released his “Fifth” album in October of 2021.  He’s had two of his singles released to country radio, that have broken into the top 100 of the Music Row Chart.

In 2023, he started the year with forming his own band.  In April he quit his day job and started working full time in music, playing regularly on Broadway, and also traveling around the country performing with his band.  The highlight of the year was opening for Drake White at the Big Butler Fair in Pennsylvania.   

2024 started off right by making his debut at Whiskey Jam in Nashville on January 4th where he performed his new single, “OH DEER” that released to country radio 1/5/24!  The goal for 2024 is to increase the number of concerts around the country so the band can spread their original music to as many people as possible!

Monica Austin is a Midwest Country Music artist from the Quad City Area. Her slice-of-life writing style and swing for the fences stage show are a refreshing, honest representation of growing up in the Heartland and have earned a fiercely loyal fanbase there.

Her proven ability to pull an audience into a performance has earned her stage time with some of the most celebrated A-list artist of both the 90's and today. Monica is currently headlining the "Midwest Mama" tour, promoting her 2023 album of the same name. She currently holds the title of Midwest Country Music Organization Entertainer of the Year.
