Eric Ryan was born outside Orlando, Florida. At a very young age his family of five moved to Unionville, VA. and returned to Florida years later. He first started playing with the idea of guitar at Twelve years of age, but didn’t apply himself to learn it until four years later. "I learned to play on my Father's old Yamaha acoustic. “I love playing guitar, don't get me wrong; I just found myself focusing more on singing and performing. It wasn't until nine-teen that I even began to attempt to write a song." Eric's Mother (a pianist and amateur songwriter herself) would later fuel Ryan’s passion for story-driven music.
Currently based in Clarksville, TN. (just Northwest of Nashville) “Eric Ryan encompasses his own hybrid of Country Music” (Stereostickman.com) and spent the last two years touring up and down Florida putting in over 320 shows in two years! "I suppose the way I found my sound is no different then most, I drew off influences by every artist I had ever loved listening to... well, that and many years of writing and playing live shows... music tends to evolve along those lines. Hell, I’m still dialing it in."
Ryan was a former Top 20 National Finalist on the hit TV series 'Nashville Star' pilot in 2003 with Country Music heavyweight Miranda Lambert. It seems Eric’s primary goal is to connect with the audience. "My job is to tell stories, but you have to tell those stories correctly, you have to deliver them with power and passion. We as entertainers owe country music fans that at the very least! The fans are the people that literally give us our dreams! I have to find a way to perform a song that will reach that person(s) out there that needs those words the most in that moment. It’s surprising how strongly the right song at the right time can change the course of a person's entire life. It's never enough to just sing a song ya know?" Eric Ryan gained a major sponsor in 2018 via *Larrivee Guitars and within a very short time since moving to Nashville he has managed to land two more! Westone Audio, one of the world’s leading IEM (In Ear monitoring) companies and G7th Capos, a company that has revolutionized how guitar capos are made and how they function. Add to that a few endorments and to be honest even I’m wondering how he did all this so quickly. It is also worth noting that Eric has no manager, no agent, no web master, no graphic artist and no social media handlers, it’s all him. Seriously Eric, when do you sleep man?!
"Eric Ryan is an established and dedicated country music singer/songwriter based in the U.S. His music offers audiences a captivating array of heartfelt stories from various viewpoints, always beautifully written and performed." - StereoStickman.com
Eric Ryan has done opening performances for such amazing artists as: Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Chad Brock, Rhett Akins, Dierks Bentley, Mongomery Gentry, Charlie Daniels, Chris Cagle, Edwin McCain and Joe Diffie.
"Thank you all so much for taking the time to listen." -ER

Rick Stone has been entertaining serious music fans for over 10 years now. Rick Stone and his Band of Brothers are road proven and are always up for a good time. Rick has performed Country, Southern Rock, Blue-Grass and Americana at many prestigious venues and events across the Southeast such as Mad Life Studios and The Belle Meade Plantation. He has also performed at the Cobb and Paulding Rodeos and the Georgia State Fair. As a military veteran Rick is an active supporter of local charities and events to support veterans, children and the underprivileged, dedicating time to organizations such as St. Jude's Children's Hospital and the American Legions. Rick clears his schedule for at least 6 charity events per year.
Rick’s signature personality shines in interviews with Atl. & Co., Full Throttle Magazine, Rising Star Magazine, and many local radio shows and newspapers. That personality translates effortlessly to the stage. Rick likes to engage with the audiences at his shows, coming off stage and performing amongst the crowd he demonstrates his desire to be close to his fans. He makes himself available before, after and even during shows for a quick chat and a friendly handshake. Rick has had steady success in the industry, beginning in 2008 with the debut of his single ‘Me and You’, a deeply personal song that gave him his first radio airplay. He followed the success of this track with a string of impressive single releases including ‘I’m Your Man’, ‘Never Started Drinking’ and ‘This Ole Road’. Recent releases show no sign of him slowing down either. The accompanying music video for his 2019 single ‘Wonderin’ What I’m Doin’ Wrong’ quickly hit 100k views on YouTube and his newest single ‘Quicksilver’ is positioned to do equally as well. Things keep moving quick for Rick and he couldn’t be happier to have the support of the best group of fans and family a man could ask for. Don’t miss a chance to catch him live, you sure won’t be disappointed.
