Mark Newton, Lyrics for Lyric show host, is proud to announce the addition of rising Country Artist John Austin McDaniel to the July 26th Lyrics for Lyric show.
John Austin McDaniel has been performing on stage since the age of five when he asked his father, Buddy McDaniel, to let him sing onstage with his band. At age nine he opened for Grand Ole Opry stars Bill Monroe, Little Jimmy Dickens, Bill Anderson, Ray Price, Kitty Wells, and personal favorite, Merle Haggard. At age 14, John entered the first annual Loretta Lynn Talent Search alongside future country star Jessica Andrews and won.
During that period of time, John Austin also performed guest appearances at the Renfroe Valley Barn Dance in Renfroe Valley, Kentucky; renowned as a launching pad for many current rising stars such as Troy Gentry of the popular multi-platinum selling country band Montgomery-Gentry.
In 2004, McDaniel hired an all-star ensemble of musicians including top-sought keyboardist and studio pioneer Hargus "Pig" Robbins, CMA and ACM Instrumentalist of the year harmonica player Charlie McCoy, and Wayne Ross, founder of powerhouse southern rock blues band "Barefoot Jerry" to help master his album “Country as Cornbread”.
The July 26th Lyrics for Lyric show will be the eighth installment of the on-going concert series presented by Roosters TX Style BBQ & Steakhouse, located at 123 12th Avenue North, Nashville, TN. 37203, hosted by Mark Newton, IBMA Award winning Stylist/ Musician and one of today's most respected interpreters of bluegrass music. Each month is jam packed with Nashville's best established talent in the Country, Bluegrass, Americana and Roots genres to benefit two year old Lyric Alana Frizzell (offset costs incurred while living at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital) whom was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of Leukemia at ten months old. After spending 6 months undergoing harsh chemo treatments at the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, Lyric is now in what’s called a “partial remission”, which simply means she has responded well to the chosen chemo treatment. She now frequents the Vanderbilt Cancer Clinic on a monthly basis and will do so for the next 3 and ½ years. If she can reach the 5 year mark without a relapse, she will be declared in full remission. Past shows have featured such stars as Jamie Johnson, Marty Raybon, Carl Jackson, Trent Tomlinson, Claire Lynch, Cia Cheryholmes, Missy Raines, Larry Cordle, Jerry Salley, The Roys, Whitney Duncan, Michael Peterson, Whitney Duncan and Billy Yates. As the show has grown, so has the talent level and sponsorship support from companies such as TKL Cases, D’Addario Strings, Double E Promotions and Paige Capo.
The July 26th show will also feature such great artists as American Idol Alum Bo Bice, Dean Miller, Ken Mellons, Chris Caskey and Bedhed & Blondy.
