"In the House" at the Grinder House is broadcast live on WFMC Jams every Friday from 6-8pm central.

Delnora is a singer/songwriter based just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. She grew up in Princeton, WV and has been performing her signature blend of roots, country and folk music across the country since she was a teenager, continuing a long and distinguished family tradition in music.
"Music’s in the bloodlines for Delnora Reed; her great-grandfather Henry Reed’s fiddle tunes are a centerpiece of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Her own efforts, while steeped in old-time country and bluegrass, are considerably more contemporary. Such songs as “Sleepwalking” split the difference between Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin, with hushed sincerity and gutsy delivery." ~ K. Oliver
 
Delnora was a founding member of Blue Eyed Grass, a critically acclaimed duo. In addition to writing and performing music, she managed the duo, promoted it nationwide, and produced three studio albums. When the duo ended, she turned her attention back to being a solo act. Throughout her career she has written with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters. A few years ago she began working with Reed Nielson (“My Town”, “Little Liza Jane”, and many more). They collaborated on six remarkable songs that formed the backbone of her solo project, “My Song”.
In 2019, Delnora released the single “When You’re Gone” to Inspirational Country Radio was rewarded both with a place on the charts and a nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year at ICMA Awards. With the follow-up release of her single “Battlecry” she, again, hit the charts and is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year in 2020. Currently, Delnora is working on a new project, “Blank Page”. Five of its songs were co-written with ICMA Songwriter of the Year Corey Lee Barker, and has enlisted the help of Chris Golden, the reigning ICMA Entertainer of the Year, as co-producer.
 
"There is a hidden gem in Nashville that deserves more recognition than she has ever received by the name of Delnora Reed. She has one of the prettiest voices in Music City and has finally released a new record titled, My Song. Her voice is so pure you can hear the emotions with every word… After reviewing her albums for some time, it has been an honor to see her grow as an artist and with the results of My Song she has finally found her mark."

About Johnny:

2021 Nominations for Johnny Collier - The Josie Music Awards

“I’m a country boy. There’s nothin’ about me that ain’t. I’ve entertained crowds of 80,000 people working stadiums, festivals, fairs and beer joints. Worked with my hands, built a family, ran 3 bars and sang in way too many so yes, i know somethin’ about making my audience happy. And yes, I talk to God…” JC.

 

Recording artist, Johnny Collier, brings something unique to his fans and followers in today’s music scene. Digging deep into his Muscle Shoals and Nashville roots, Johnny mixes country music’s past and present to create a passionate, soulful music adventure. This isn’t the stuff your Daddy stomped his boots to, but it kind of is. You’ll hear a hint of R&B and Blues flavoring. Johnny’s is not a rock show, but it totally does. His ability to fuse that feel-good driving country beat together with a contemporary musical vision lead Johnny to write hot selling fan favorites like “Hole In My Heart”, “I Got This…”, and “Never Really Famous”. “I’m blessed” Johnny says, “ to perform an average of 140 concerts each year all over the South for crowds up to 80,000 people. People tell me all the time ‘Man, you are so smooth. The music just flows out of you and it looks like you’re enjoying every second’ and the truth is… I really am. And they get to come along.”

With a successful career in the music and entertainment industry, Johnny Collier has earned a long and loyal fan base. Whether he’s headlining or workin’ a honky-tonk, Johnny’s style of music attracts a large audience. Johnny travels making new friends and greeting old ones. His schedule of dates and performances reflect concerts and shows ranging from fairs, festivals, dance halls and night clubs to organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Hospital, America’s Trail Ride Association, tourist venues booked as much as a year in advance and engagements overseas.

It’s true that his schedule and work ethics led to Johnny’s being called “The Hardest Working Guy in Show Business”. Wayne Chaney, stage manager for LITTLE RICHARD, says “When I call Johnny, I don’t have to worry. He just says when & where do you need me”.

The early years placed Johnny Collier into the professional realm when he started singing with THE HANK WILLIAMS, JR. BAND as they needed a front man to replace Hank while he recouped from touring. Then, forming his own band with musicians such as Roger Clark, Drummer from THE STEVE MILLER BAND & THE GREATFUL DEAD, Johnny started to write and record his own material and found himself working with members of THE LITTLE RICHARD BAND, opening for JIM ED BROWN and doing sessions at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL. 1995 found Johnny backing Nashville artist’s like TIM HILLIARD and being asked to do a tour in Japan.

In 1997, Johnny re-united with his birth father, Mark Collier, who retired from the music business in the 80’s. Johnny and his father re-opened MOLLIE MUSIC PUBLISHING. The two began recording and working with other artists from Disneyland California and Nashville.

Next, Johnny recorded an album titled “Take You To The Country” on Jasmine Records and in 1999, MMG Records released and promoted several singles from the Album. An earlier version of “Honey for Hire” charted at #33 on The Worldwide Top 100 Singles Chart and his music was known across the US and in several foreign countries… Australia in particular, where Beth Brown played Johnny’s hot new single on her Radio Show reaching 7.5 million listeners. Another single, “Love Let Her”, earned Johnny the title of Artist of the Year in 2003 by remaining in the Top 5 for 28 consecutive weeks!

Johnny hosted his own TV show during this time on W10BV broadcasting from Ethridge, Tennessee, with owner and friend, Sarah Evetts, known for starting the smallest TV station in America and catapulting to worldwide fame and success when appearing on Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, USA Today, and more.

Johnny’s talent and manner enables him to work with some of the best in the business including Natalie Stovall And The Drive, T. Graham Brown, ACM Top New Female Vocalist Nominee -Joy Lynn White, Mark Herndon ‘Alabama’, Songwriter/Producer-Billy Lawson, Logan Mize, Daryl Singletary, Members of the Hank, Jr. Band, Marty Raybon ‘Shenandoah’, Stella Parton, King of Beach Music-Clifford Curry, Razzy Bailey, Blue Mother Tupelo, Fred “Re-run” Berry, Jim Ed Brown, Terri “Somebody’s Knockin” Gibbs, Freddie Weller, Seidina Reed, Donna Fargo, Wanda Jackson, Producer-Bud Logan, Members of the Little Richard Band, Engineer-Jerry Masters and Two Time Musician of the Year-Kirk Johnson.

After years of playing music on the road all over the US, Johnny spent 2017 & 2018 working on his second album and touring the country. In April, 2018, Johnny had a bit of set back when he suffered a massive and severe subarachnoid hemorrhage (ruptured brain aneurysm) and stroke and underwent 3 brain surgeries including endovascular coiling, carotid angioplasty and the insertion of a sleeve/stent in the Aneurysm site. Johnny spent 3 weeks in the Neurosurgical ICU at UAB in Birmingham, Alabama, and then several months recovering there after. With the grace of God, his wife, family, friends, and thousands and thousands of prayers, cards, well wishes and love from his fans and followers, Johnny pulled through miraculously well and began touring again about 6 months later.

Johnny is so proud to announce the release of his new album “Love Me For Who I Am”. The music in this album is straight from Johnny’s heart and tells stories and shares insites that everyone can relate to. The album, released November 1st, 2019, is available for purchase through this website, CD-Baby and at Johnny’s concerts. The album is also available for Digital Download and streaming from over 150 music media sites world wide including iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, Spotify, YouTube and many others.

"In the House" at the Grinder House is broadcast live on WFMC Jams every Friday from 6-8pm central.

Travis Bigwood is an Americana Folk band from Knoxville, TN. Their songs focus storytelling. "I started writing songs because I wanted to tell a story. I wanted to share the anthology of my experiences growing up in East Tennessee and feel that connection that only music can bring. I try to capture the sound of the hardships and all the goodness that echo through these mountains."
"It’s the sound of a young man attempting to make peace with his past and coming to terms with the changes of his present — the realization that while he might not be where he was or even where he wants, that good things happen. There’s both celebration and solace in such a moment of clarity, and that Bigwood spins it into sonic gold is evidence of an artistic soul wise beyond the years of its mortal shell." - Steve Wildsmith of The Daily Times Maryville TN.
