Jay Powell
Jay Powell is an American country and gospel singer/songwriter from the backwoods of Louisiana. His father was a gospel music singer, which inspired him to start singing at a very early age. He and his six brothers along with his parents traveled all over the United States preaching and singing. He fell in love with country music after hearing George Strait. He and his brothers formed a band in 1998 called JJSTAR and performed at many nightclubs and various outings in Louisiana. He performed at the Talladega Racetrack for three consecutive years. He recorded and released a tribute song to Dale Earnhardt, Sr., titled “Last Lap.” In 2001, he made the move to Nashville, Tennessee, to pursue a country music career. In 2003, he recorded an eight-song country music CD with Tim McGraw’s band, The Dancehall Doctors. His latest recording is a five-song country gospel/contemporary Christian album recorded in June of 2018 at Hilltop Studios in Gallatin, Tennessee. He is currently pursuing a career in contemporary Christian music.
Bobby G. Rice
Bobby G. Rice is proof that music is a universal language. The legendary singer-songwriter struck success with a string of pop hit remakes in the early 70s that drew in country crowds, leading to 30 Billboard Chart hits, numerous awards and over four decades of entertaining.

2017 marks the 45th anniversary of the Bobby G. Rice smash number one hit, “You Lay So Easy On My Mind.” As the performer and songwriter, Rice earned CMA nominations for single and album of the year, as well as male vocalist of the year in 1973. And once again, stretching musical genres, Rice was further honored when such notable names as Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty Roy Orbison, David Houston, Kitty Wells, Jerry Springer, Bill Anderson’s Po’ Boys Band, Pat Boone and Andy Williams all recorded his signature song, “You Lay So Easy on My Mind.”

The mild-mannered artist developed his passion for music as a child on his family’s own radio show. His popularity quickly spread beyond his native state of Wisconsin with the 1970 revivals of the Jimmy Gilmore pop classic, “Sugar Shack” and Bruce Channel’s, “Hey Baby” followed by his versions of standards “Mountain Of Love” and “Suspicion.”

Bobby G. Rice’s smooth vocal styling placed more songs on the Billboard Top 10 Chart, including “You Give Me You,” “Write Me A Letter” and “Freda Comes, Freda Goes.” “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down” and “My Special Angel” also hit the charts for Rice.

Bobby G. Rice’s achievements led to some historical stages. Rice performed on the Grand Ole Opry, the WWVA Wheeling Jamboree, the Ralph Emery Show, Nashville Now, the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree, Midwest Country, The Bill Anderson TV Show, The Wilburn Brothers TV Show, The Ronnie Prophet TV Show (Toronto Canada BBC) and the Dean Martin replacement show Music Country USA on NBC.

As an entertainer, Bobby G. Rice continues to explore the latest outlets with the release of his music video, “Is This The Way You Say Goodbye.” Rice also continues to record, write songs and tour with the same motto he started with, “It’s all about the fans and giving them good music.”
