Cobb originally wrote the song for the blues icon Etta James. Her version appeared on the Grammy nominated cd titled Seven Year Itch (Island Records). Johnny’s elf-penned and produced Elektra/Asylum Records album titled Lawler & Cobb / Men From Nowhere was nominated for a Grammy. The title track “Love At First Sight” received a Grammy nomination. Cobb toured the world and recorded (vocals & bass player) with RCA Records superstar Ronnie Milsap for five years. Johnny recorded three platinum CMA Albums Of The Year, and two Grammy award winning singles with Ronnie. During his association with Milsap, Cobb appeared on many national and international tv shows. Johnny performed back-up vocals on the Garth Brooks cd The Chase, which includes the award winning single and video “We Shall Be Free”.

He received a letter of recognition and a honor guard presentation of an American flag that had flown over the White House from then vice-president., Al Gore, for his contribution to this cause.

Jim Quick & Coastline

Artist or in person, Jim Quick is the kind of guy you genuinely want to call a friend. With the charm only a true Southerner can possess, he brings his talent to the stage with a quick-witted, knee-slapping sense of humor coupled with the clear sincerity of his love for his craft.

“As a child, I was real mischievous. Playin’ pranks and makin’ jokes; doin’ stupid stuff you do as a kid. People would laugh; the more they laughed, the more I’d act a fool! It was like applause for more, more, more. I loved being the center of attention. Still do. Add music and, well, that’s spice to the concoction! That’s how I roll.”

And “roll” he does. Quick’s been touring the Southeast US for more than 15 years, playing nearly 300 shows per year, and has released more than 11 albums including his newest, DOWN SOUTH. Originally introducing their music as the Coastline Band—a band of friends who played the Carolina beach bars day in and day out—the group pushed Quick to the forefront and naturally transformed into Jim Quick & Coastline. Known for his all-out performances and deliberate, off-the-cuff wisecracks, Jim has been a gracious recipient of the Carolina Music Awards “Entertainer Of The Year Award” – ten times.

Jason Link

Country music may be running through Jason Link’s veins, but when you first meet this modern-edged performer down on Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee, it’s hard to tell he was raised on a 900-acre tobacco farm that goes back four generations.  In fact, you may think he was more of a new generation country-rocker with hair falling conspicuously into a spiky form of bedhead sexiness and a lean physique sporting an array of rumpled designer duds, including a cowboy hat that he modified himself by spray painting and scuffing up into its own innovative texture.

But regardless of his urban-esque appeal, this real world ‘country boy’ from Freeman, Virginia, can belt out a tune with just enough twang that would be best described as George Strait meets Hank Williams, Jr. with a serving of Kenny Chesney on the side.  And that doesn’t even cover the fact that he’s an extraordinary guitar player. He is among the few that play lead guitar currently driving the country music scene.  Only two other players come to mind when thinking of Jason and that’s Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.

However, Link is well aware that possessing the talent to have mastered the guitar and banjo is not all it takes for him to make his dreams a reality…it’s about having great songs.  No problem there.  Jason also happens to be a seasoned songwriter, with the ability to construct memorable melodies paired with story-driven lyrics and just the right amount of modern flare to appeal to a country radio audience.  And if that’s not enough to convince every country music listener to jump on the “Link” train, his ability to perform live is without question, the best.  With the stamina of Bruce Springsteen and an enduring passion to always be on stage singing, he is what one would call a true entertainer. 

But none of this should be a surprise once you learn how long Jason Link has been doing this thing he calls “his life”.  It all started at the age of five…playing the drums at his grandfather’s dance hall, Club 301, while also appearing on his grandfather’s radio station, 580 AM WLES, in Lawrenceville, Virginia, under the nickname “Scoot Scoot”.   At age 16, he began to play guitar and write his own songs which led to countless shows at local bars and other venues with his uncle Marty, who was influential in teaching Jason his unique style of hybrid country lead guitar.  Eager to explore music from all genres, Jason was influenced, both vocally and in his guitar playing, by artists ranging from Hank Williams, Sr. to Jimi Hendrix to the Beatles.  There was no stopping him.

When Jason was nineteen, he landed a gig as the lead singer in a house band he formed with his uncle.  His great dedication to music was truly apparent during this time, as he drove one hundred miles each way, playing over 270 shows a year for five years.  It was during this period of his life that Jason began to develop his unique musical style with the help of vocal coach Janet Kenyon, who has worked with artists such as Taylor Swift and Josh Turner.  

Today, Jason resides in Nashville, Tennessee, tours the country, and continues to capture new fans with his energetic and aggressive live performances.  With a country music style all his own mixed with a good dose of rugged sex appeal, Jason never fails to leave an audience wanting more.  

Jason Link’s life has been and always will be his music…as a third generation musician, he carries with him his family’s musical lineage and it is no secret that he is well on his way to becoming a country music superstar.  As his grandfather once told him, “He is and will be “something special”.
