Native Run makes a dash for Show Dog

Monday, September 23, 2013 – Virginia duo Native Run signed with Show Dog-Universal Music, making them the first duo for the Nashville-based label.

Produced by CMA Nominated Producer and BMI Songwriter of the Year, Luke Laird, the duo is currently working on their debut album.

"It is rare to find two people thinking as one musically and stylistically," said label head Mark Wright. "When we heard and saw Native Run, we knew they were that rare find. It's a great feeling to sign a new artist who is ready for the big stage the day you sign them."

"The Show Dog-Universal Music team's enthusiasm and vision for our music sealed the deal for us," said Native Run's Rachel Beauregard and Bryan Dawley in a statement. "They're the kind of quality people you want around you and fighting for you. We're beyond stoked."

"Bryan and Rachel captured my attention the first time I saw them perform live," said producer/songwriter Luke Laird. "Their stage presence combined with their songwriting ability and musicianship are inspiring and I feel honored to work with them."

Pikelny's playing answers all questions.... »»»
Concert Review: Not playing the hit proves no problem for Bingham – Ryan Bingham may always end up being best known for collaborating with T Bone Burnett on the soundtrack for the 2009 film starring Jeff Bridges, particularly "The Weary Kind." That would not be a surprise given that he won a Grammy and Oscar for the song. One would, therefore, think that "The Weary Kind" would be one of those... »»»
