Team Gone Country Sponsored Artists

J Marc Bailey  

My love of music of all kinds was influenced by people very dear to me: my grandfather, my uncles, and my mom. They all played their part in helping me find bits and pieces from many different genres that I could connect to and enjoy. "Although I love good solid Rock N Roll, Country has always been at the heart of things for me." J Marc has shared the stage with some of the greats including: Little Texas, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Diamond Rio, Sawyer Brown, Restless Heart, Phil Vassar, Deanna Carter, Gary Allan, The Little River Band, Brian White, Earl Thomas Conley, Highway 101, Ryan Shuppe, and .38 Special to name a few. We have designed an exclusive hat for J Marc. He named his signature hat "Memphis" after his son. They don't get cuter than this. In this picture he's wearing our Justin bangora.

Brent Atwood and Southern Country Outlaws

As with many artists today Brent’s love for music started out in church.

From around age 7 he sang not only in his home church but also toured with his parents and brother to churches all around South Carolina. In the early to mid-90’s his group the “Uptown Posse” took Myrtle Beach by storm as the local hip hop bad boys, playing with acts such as Vanilla Ice, Heavy D and the Boys, Big Daddy Kane, NKOTB and many more. But he always knew his true love in music was the old country songs his dad played for him. Since 2015 he has focused on his music. He started writing songs and put together the Southern Country Outlaws (SoCo for short.) Since then his powerful lead vocals and high energy show have kept crowds all over North & South Carolina on their feet and rockin’ to the best in Country and Southern Rock to be found anywhere. Hold on tight y’all and keep it Outlaw!!

The Terry Douglas Band is a high energy band from Columbus Ohio that plays authentic country music. They tip their hats to the sounds of the past while keeping a foot in the present. The band is led by Terry Douglas, singer-songwriter from Thornville, Ohio. The band members are Billy Compton on drums, Craig Nelson on guitar , Dave Parks on lead guitar, Wolf Waggoner on bass and Dwayne Whalen on steel guitar. Fans love the original songs. With beds of steel guitar the songs tell stories with not only the words but with the music.
