About Chuck Mead
Chuck Mead is a Country singer with a rock ‘n’ roll heart. He’s also a renowned songwriter, producer, music director, musicologist and architect behind the rebirth of Lower Broadway and the global neo-traditional country music movement.

A Kansas native, Chuck has been at the forefront of Americana music for the better part of 25 years. Perhaps best known for co-founding the famed ‘90s alternative country quintet, BR5-49, who’s 7 albums garnered a CMA Award for Best International Touring Act and three Grammy nominations, helped build an indelible bridge between authentic American Roots music and millions of fans worldwide.

About Kelsey Rae
Southwest Virginia native singer-songwriter Kelsey Rae Copeland calls Nashville home these days, and she’s been heard around Music City during her residency at The Nashville Palace, a spot known for featuring deep cuts of traditional country, on Broadway at Layla’s and Robert’s Western World, and on Honky Tonk Tuesday Nights at American Legion Post 82, one of the latest venues featuring traditional country music.

Her love of the mountains, Southwest Virginia, and the influences of the Carter family and Dr. Ralph Stanley stay dear and close and are heard in FORTUNE TELLER, her album of original songs that showcases a distinct voice and lyrics that speak to those inspirations and love for the sounds of the music of Patsy Cline, Connie Smith, Anita Carter and Kitty Wells. Included on the album is “Social Media,” her tribute to Dolly Parton.
