Childers released his debut album, "Purgatory," produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, to much acclaim last year.
Of the album, the Lawrence Country, Ky. native said, "I am extremely grateful for Miles Miller introducing me to Sturgill Simpson and also for Sturgill and David Ferguson taking the time to work with me. I think we both wanted to make an album for east Ky., and I reckon that's what we did. It's not about rock, or grass, or country...it's just hollerin' in the mountains and stirring shit up. The band Sturgill and David put together was an all-star cast and an honor to work with and learn from. I hope to do it again, but once is more than most are blessed with. For that I am thankful."
Childers is nominated for "Emerging Artist of the Year" at the 2018 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards and also made his Grand Ole Opry debut earlier this spring.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Turnpike Troubadours are winners
The Turnpike Troubadours had a lot of competition when playing Beantown - the Red Sox playoff game first and foremost. No matter though because the country band put on their own winning show.
That was no surprise given the individual abilities of the band, not to mention a plethora of worthy songs to choose from.
It all starts with lead singer Evan Felker.... »»»
Concert Review: The Killer lives on with Low Cut Connie
Jerry Lee Lewis isn't exactly out and about hitting the clubs these days. But if he was searching for someone who was carrying on his torch, he would do well to check out Adam Weiner, the force behind Low Cut Connie.
The Philly band was highly entertaining with Weiner a true force of nature. Think Lewis merged with Springsteen (although The Boss is The Boss).... »»»
