A small-town girl with a big-time faith whose talent, look and voice conjures up memories of a young Carrie Underwood, Ava currently finds herself on the cusp of country music stardom.
And for good reason.
The 22-year-old with the fresh sound and addicting spirit likes to say she was born to play music. Her grandfather plays the guitar, her parents once served as worship leaders and everyone around her sings…. everyone. In fact, as a little girl, Ava would sing so much that her mom often found herself politely asking her talented daughter to stop, for even just a moment, so they could sit down at the table and at least enjoy a dinner together in peace.
Ava’s current single, “He’s Like a Habit,” brings with it a playful energy and an undeniable spunk that will soon infuse the country music industry with a youthful spirit not seen since the early days of Taylor Swift. And the song with the infectious hook also reminds us that, despite the weight of an ongoing pandemic, it’s still fun to be young and there is still fun to be had.
And Ava wants the world to feel that fun again.

For country duo Austin’s Rose, it was never about the ‘what’ and ‘where’. It was about the ‘how’ and ‘when’. Tim Gore and Taylor Cornilles both knew they would come to Nashville to become country music artists. But they never could have envisioned that meeting each other would forge the path to all their hopes and dreams.
Tim Gore has had music in his life for as long as he can remember. His mother was an early influence, playing guitar and singing country songs to him as a child. At the age of nine, Tim picked up the guitar and has never put it down.
Although athletics played a key role during his high school years, he never lost his desire to make and play country music. Looking back on the first two concerts of his life, Tim can still recall the impact it had on him. “The first one I attended was a Waylon show. The next one was Travis Tritt. My mind was made up. This is what I was meant to do.”
As a promise to his parents, Gore did go to college. While at the University of Kentucky, Tim continued to focus on music. He played at the Austin City Saloon, the same club that brought stars to country music like John Michael Montgomery and Montgomery Gentry. His next step would be Nashville.
Like Tim Gore, Taylor Cornilles always had music in her life. She grew up on a horse ranch in Wolf Creek, Oregon. Her mom was a traditional country singer and her father played guitar at church and in his band. Because her goal was always going to Nashville, she began preparing at a very young age. At the age of six, Taylor learned how to play the piano. At the age of nine, it was guitar. Fiddle came the next year and she took on mandolin at the age of 14.
At the age of 11, Taylor and her family put together a band and they spent the next few years playing fairs and community events. One year later, she sang an open mic event at the Bluebird Café in Nashville. “Playing the Bluebird should have been a satisfying ‘bucket list’ kind of thing for me,” recalled Taylor, “but instead it created a hunger that wouldn’t go away.” The day she graduated from high school, Taylor Cornilles moved to Nashville to become a star.
In 2014, after five years of playing on the Nashville club circuit on lower Broadway, Tim was about to give up his dream when he met Taylor. They began collaborating and found in each other what was missing musically. “Taylor’s early traditional female influences (Patty Loveless, Allison Krauss, Lee Ann Womack) combined with mine (Waylon, Tritt, Montgomery Gentry) play a key part in our sound,” explained Gore, “but it’s really our vocal blend in our harmonies that define us.”
Austin’s Rose spent the next three years doing several hundred shows and honing their unique sound. But it wasn’t until 2018, when they met and began working with producer Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum), that the musical vision came into focus. “They are both great singers in their own right,” explained Worley, “but when you put those voices together, they become something special.” When asked to explain the Austin’s Rose sound, Taylor Cornilles described it best. We take our traditional instrumentation and harmonies and balance them with a more contemporary mix. It’s the blend that makes us unique.”

Troy Underwood is a soul man. As simple and ultimately misleading as that may be, it’s about as close as anyone will ever come to describing him. With a voice that would be the envy of any in Nashville, and a groove as bone-deep as any blue-eyed soulsters’, Underwood can paint on as broad an aural landscape as he wishes. Whether it’s channeling Tony Joe White on his sizzling “Summertime In Georgia,” romancing the ether with “Dance In The Kitchen,” or bringing down the house with “Big Bottom Girls,” Underwood defies categorization.
 
Underwood hails from Ringgold, Georgia, where he learned to play the drums at four, and keyboards and guitar before reaching his teens. Possessed of a preternaturally old and soulful voice and the writing chops to compliment it, he seemed tailor made for the life of a troubadour. It was obvious to anyone who knew him that music was his calling. The only one who didn’t seem to know it was Underwood himself, and it would be some time before the call of his muse became too loud for even him to ignore.
 
Like many fledgling singer/songwriters, Underwood’s first experience came at local open mics where it quickly became obvious that he was no ordinary talent. His songs were immediately accessible, his playing sublime, and his voice... world weary yet hopeful, a gravelly drawl that carries weight, the voice of an old, old soul. As many of those who had to follow him at those first open mic performances would surely attest, it simply wasn’t fair.
 
Soon Underwood was pitching songs, first as a hobby but then with an increasing sense of determination. He moved to Nashville where he was soon teamed up with such writers as Wynn Varble, Shawn Harnett, Bobby Pinson, Mark Gray, and John Sturdivant Jr. He seemed well on the way to having a successful songwriting career before family issues intervened, and he was forced to return home to his native Ringgold.
 
Once home, Underwood began performing locally. A move to Chattanooga brought more opportunities, and soon he was gaining a following. He released the self-produced albums “Daydream” and “Drive,” and soon women as far afield as Atlanta were singing along when he’d perform. Hailed by critics – one of whom called him the long, lost love child of Stevie Wonder and Garth Brooks – Underwood has earned a loyal coterie of fans everywhere he plays. It’s not hard to understand why: This is what he was born to do.
