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.

Spring Water Festival this weekend!

Award winning country music singer/songwriter Lucas Hoge will headline the 33rd Annual Spring Water Festival coming this Friday and Saturday, August 22-23 in Williamston’s Mineral Spring Park.
The festival will also feature more than 100 craft and business vendors, the area’s largest antique and classic auto show, kids activities, amusement rides, live music and other special attractions including a 5K walk and fun run.

Sirius XM now playing Lucas Hoge’s new single

Sirius XM The Highway is now playing Lucas Hoge’s new single Flip Flops He will be On The Horizon each weekend on channel 56. Hoge recently celebrated the world premiere release of the new single which is described as a sizzlin’ summertime tune (released in alliance with Reviver Records and Sony Red Distribution). It is a “beachy keen” tune with a good-timin’ groove. The infectious new track (co-written by Hoge and JD Wood) paints a radiant picture of warm winds, hot skin, tan lines and bikini tops. The “feel-good-allover” track basks in Hoge’s vocals—as crystal clear as the Caribbean blue-green waters. “This track is upbeat, fun and truthful,” Hoge says on his website. “My buddy had the idea for the song title and I wanted the message to reflect my life on the farm in comparison to the first time I saw the ocean.

Hoge says, the line “this girl on my arm has never seen a farm and she couldn’t believe I’d never been to the ocean’ is written from a chapter of my life 10 years ago. That ‘girl’ became my wife and when she heard I’d never seen the ocean, she made flight reservations that very day for us to head to the west Coast!”
