Megan Barker

Megan Barker came into this world with songwriting in her blood. Born in Nashville, Megan’s father wrote songs for legends like Ronnie Milsap, Barbara Mandrell, Hank Williams Jr, and more. By the age of 16, Megan was living in Las Vegas and performing live music professionally on the world famous Las Vegas Strip, and opening concerts for superstars like Lee Brice, Montgomery Gentry, Eli Young Band, and more. In 2017, Megan planted her roots back in her hometown of Nashville and quickly started checking things off her to-do list. Bluebird Cafe, CMA Fest, & Whiskey Jam are all things she can now add to her resume'. In 2018, Megan started the popular weekly live show in Nashville called Jammin In Jammies that features hit songwriters performing their hit songs in pajamas. JamminInJammies.com In 2018, Megan also released the highly anticipated EP, "Leather Souls" produced by Brad Hill (Maren Morris Brothers Osborne) The project included fan favorites, “Tequila Told Me To,” “I Cuss When I Pray,” and “When My Boots Were New.” These special songs have gotten high praise and rave reviews.2019 was a year of milestones and came with endorsements from McPherson Guitars, Shure Microphones, & Dan Post cowboy boots. Megan played what she calls some of her “favorite shows ever” in the UK, Scotland, and Ireland. Debuting at the Bluebird Cafe to a sold-out crowd and being on the “Spotlight Stage” at CMA Fest, 2019 will be hard to top, but the future is looking bright.
In 2021, Megan was a co-writer on 6 single releases including ’93 by Kimberly Dawn which was featured on SiriusXM. Other releases include songs from artists like the award winning Canadian group, The Heels, rising Nashville star, Justen Harden, and more.

Sarah Faith

A Michigan-born Nashvillian, Sarah Faith is an artist-songwriter that builds her musical catalog and sound around her life’s experiences, including addiction, abuse, and mental health. As an independent Americana artist, Sarah has been strongly influenced by a diverse musical background. The result is a healthy mix of blues and roots rock, folk, alt-country, and indie rock genres. Her warm, soulful voice brings fans songs written about close-to-the-heart stories with a distinct kind of vulnerability and realness. Having dealt with depression and anxiety most of her life, Sarah aims to relate to her audience through her struggles. “We all deal with curve balls and unexpected turns in life. None of us are dealt perfect hands. I’ve just found a way to not let it control me. That’s what drives me to create music the most.” Since her abusive alcoholic mother lost her life to addiction in 2017, her ambitions have been ever-evolving, but one thing remains constant: “I want to show people that no matter how dark your story is or how ridiculous and crazy your family is, you have the choice; you can turn your struggles into good things.”Sarah released her debut album, Lessons From The Archives, in June 2021. She is also the winner of Goodyear’s From Garage To Glory which afforded opportunities like performing twice at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, singing the National Anthem at the 2022 Cotton Bowl, performing at Nashville’s Hard Rock Cafe, and singing the National Anthem at NASCAR’s Xfinity race in Daytona in 2022. Faith has her foot on the gas pedal and is ready to make lots of noise in 2022 with the coming of a sophomore album and plans to get on the road.

Sofie Lynn

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." ~ Scott Sexton

Delnora has shared the stage with Craig Morgan, Carl Jackson, Larry Cordle, Jerry Salley, Marty Stuart, Jeff Bates, Eddie Stubbs, The Chuck Wagon Gang, Chris Golden, Joe Allen, Stella Parton, Georgette Jones, Paul Thorn, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Buddy Jewell, Leona Williams, Leonard Ahlstrom, Jason Deere, Jan Howard, Roy Clark, Jr., Jett Williams, Billy Yates, Buck Moore, Gary Duffey, Ed Bruce, Mark Alan Cash, Tommy Barnes, Joey and Rory, Ashley Campbell, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Jessie McReynolds and so many more. She also recorded as a member of the trio The Shotgun Rubies for Grammy Award winner Carl Jackson’s remarkable project, “Orthophonic Joy – The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited”, which was released on Sony Records.
