Wild Hare Country Festival artists to be announced

10:05 pm – Whitey Morgan

The history of country music has no shortage of characters hit by hard luck: the hard-working man who can’t seem to make ends meet, the heart-of-gold drunk who just can’t seem to put down the bottle, the woman who wants to do right but ends up, time and again, doing wrong. No matter the tragedies at the center of the songs, in most cases those characters come off like just that — characters; inventions of either a particularly gifted songwriter looking to spin a tall tale or a lazy one looking to pad out an album. But in the case of Whitey Morgan, those characters — the drinker, the troublemaker, the struggling, hard-working man — all seem arrestingly real.

9:20 pm – Scooter Brown Band

After 4 years and 3 months, 2 tours overseas with 1 tour of combat in Iraq as a United States Marine, Scott Brown traded his guns in for guitars and hit the road. The Scooter Brown Band was formed in 2005 and played mainly in and around Houston, Texas. It wasn’t until 2009 with the release of their first studio album, “Between Hell & Texas,” that they gained a notable presence in the music scene. Along with their growing notoriety came their first radio single “Apology.”

8:20 pm – Jason Boland and The Stragglers

Over the last two decades, Jason Boland and the Stragglers have independently sold more than half a million albums and packed iconic dancehalls, theaters, and other big rooms across the country. Since debuting in 1999 with the Lloyd Maines-produced Pearl Snaps, the band has matured without taming their refreshing irreverence. Led by Jason Boland, the Stragglers is made up of jangly honky-tonk aces including Grant Tracy on bass, drummer and background vocalist Brad Rice, and Nick Worley on fiddle, mandolin, and harmonies.

7:35 pm – Kaitlin Butts

… Kaitlin Butts is a thunderstorm. A tornado warning. The siren wail of a small town’s caution system still in use. Behind her flowing locks of auburn hair, Oklahoma twang, and wry grin, grows a demanding voice and equally devastating storyteller. The high-rising Butts may only have one full-length album under her belt—the encouraging Same Hell, Different Devil—but the Oklahoma native is steadily blooming into a quick-witted writer.

6:45 pm – The Piedmont Boys

The Piedmont Boys started out in Greenville, SC over a decade ago by frontman Greg Payne. They’ve played thousands of shows, logged thousands of miles, released four albums, toured half the continental U.S., shared stages with everyone from Eric Church to Charlie Robison..hell, they’ve even played rodeos from Oregon to Texas. But wherever they go, the refrain of the fans who come up to them remains the same: “I never liked country music until I heard y’all.”

6:00 pm – Tylor and The Train Robbers

Tylor & the Train Robbers, a Boise Idaho based band, possess a depth of thought steeped in Americana Folk without losing it’s Country root grittiness. Hailing from small town Helix Oregon, lyrically focused frontman and songwriter Tylor Ketchum conjures up his long dead outlaw ancestor, Black Jack Ketchum as the inspiration for their new album, Best of the Worst Kind in a musical necromancy that is delivered in full with the title track, The Ballad of Black Jack Ketchum. Set to be released on the anniversary of his hanging, April 26th, the music video for the ballad was was filmed at Black Jack’s grave during the bands most recent tour through the South West United States.

8:00 pm – Micky and The Motorcars

Thirteen years can put a hell of a lot of wear and tear on even the hardiest of rock ’n’ roll bands. But don’t be fooled by all those hundreds of thousands of miles on Micky & the Motorcars’ odometer: pop the hood of Hearts From Above, the long-running Austin band’s seventh album, and you’ll find a brand-new engine, fine-tuned and good to run for at least as many more miles still ahead. And behind the wheel? Two brothers — Micky and Gary Braun — who by their own admission haven’t been this fired up about playing together since they first rode south from the Whitecloud Mountains of Idaho to stake their claim to the Texas and wider Americana music scenes.

7:15 pm – Brass Tacks

Country music being played today has an identity crisis; Brass Tacks were a little surprised to find out bar owners and venues couldn’t agree more by booking them to play their young, unique, and real sound. They have continued to bring their southern-rock, love-song, outlaw-country sound to all corners of the Oregon scene with a passion for music and an ever growing crowd.

Wild Hare Country Festival artists to be announced

6:15 pm – Mike and The Moonpies

When frontman Mike Harmeier sang “they don’t make ’em like they used to” at the start of Mike and the Moonpie’s last studio album (2015’s Mockingbird), it wasn’t the idle complaint of an armchair country music critic: It was a self-imposed challenge, answered by Harmeier and the rest of his band of young but stage-hardened, old-soul honky-tonkers, to do something about it….

Wild Hare Country Festival artists to be announced

5:30 pm – Jacob Bryant

At 27, Jacob Bryant has lived through more than men twice his age. Hidden behind his blue eyes and charming smile lies a past of addiction, death, and divorce that have fueled his songwriting and pushed him to track some of his most popular biographical anthems including “Save My Soul,”“This Side of Sober,”“Too Late to Turn Around,”“Country Went to Hell,” and “Up In Flames.”The Jasper, Ga., native performs with the vigor of a seasoned road dog and delivers a show that combines the storytelling of country music with the passion of rock.

4:40 pm – Dirty River Boys

It happened during an ordinary refueling stop for the Dirty River Boys, the band on its way from Austin to Tulsa to kick off a six-date run. The van pulled up at a gas station and its occupants scattered, with Colton James hopping on his skateboard and heading over to a grocery store for a rotisserie chicken….

4:00 pm – The Lowdown Drifters
