AUSTIN WEBB

AUSTIN WEBB

Since winning a song writing contest in Greenville and moving to Nashville in 2011, Webb signed a publishing deal with Red Vinyl Music and a recording deal with Streamsound Records, co-owned by Grammy-winner and famed music producer Byron Gallimore. Gallimore produces Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sugarland and others.

With Streamsound, Webb released his debut single, “It’s All Good”, in December 2012. The song debuted at number 53 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in February 2013.

His second single, “Slip On By”, was released in July 2013 and peaked on the Billboard Country Airplay chart at number 40 in early 2014.

In December 2013, Webb made his debut National Anthem performance at the Green Bay Packers Lambeau Field.

In March 2014, Webb’s third single “Raise ‘Em Up” was released and debuted at number 58 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

His latest single, “All Country on You” recently reached Top 40 status on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and is getting airplay across the country and locally on WSSL radio.The song was written by Mark Irwin, Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, who also collaborated on hits including Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” and Tyler Farr’s “Redneck Crazy.”

The song takes a different approach to the topic of women-done-wrong, taking the perspective of a man who’s learned the hard way not to cross a country girl.

Webb has performed four times on the Grand Ole Opry stage.

Austin Webb will headline entertainment Saturday on the Amphitheater Stage. Saturday’s entertainment will also feature Royal Scotsmen Band, Blue Sky Band, Jake Bartley Band and others to be announced soon.
