New Country with an attitude!
Straightforward new country with a hint of traditional just scratches
the surface of the phenomenon that is rising country artist Greg
Austin. With a voice like no other, an unbelievable commanding stage
presence and songwriting skills that far surpass most of today's top
musicians, Austin is poised to take the country music landscape by
force. At the tender age of 14, Austin knew his calling was music and
picked up a guitar and penned his first original song. For 15 years
he has been honing his writing skills and performing his original
music to faithful fans all over the country. From small bars, opening
for Trace Adkins at the Guitar Pull Concert in Augusta, Georgia, to
placing in the top ten of the regional finals of USA's Nashville
Star, Austin shows no signs of slowing down. Austin has garnered
National attention and radio airplay with his song "Move a Mountain"
which was first released on the MP3.com syndicated radio
show "Country Download". In addition, he has been a featured writer and artist on the radio show "Opry Star Spotlight" on WSM-650 out of
Nashville, TN. With his first CD of original songs under his belt,
Austin also writes songs for fellow artists as well. His second full length studio album is
set to be released in 2010.
I play live anywhere they will book me! I love it! The night I got to open for Montgomery Gentry at The Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville TN as a finalist in the 2001 Jim Beam Band Search was so exciting. In November 2004, I was honored to open the Guitar Pull concert, in Augusta, Georgia,for Trace Atkins, SHeDaisey, Darryl Worley, Dierks Bentley and Billy Dean. The concert sold out in only 7 seconds. This was the highlight of my career thus far. Next to hearing "Move a Mountain" on the radio in 2001 the only thing that could top that would be to see my CD in the Music section at Target!
