Lisa Daggs
With the voice and heart of an angel, Lisa Daggs has been delighting and encouraging audiences for over 25 years. Whether on a stage, behind the radio microphone, or one-on-one with her fans, Lisa courageously shares her own story of loss, redemption and hope to inspire everyone she meets.  As a vocal performance artist Lisa has been honored with numerous awards including The Gospel Voice Diamond Award for Country Artist of the Year (other nominees included Charlie Daniels, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Raybon and Lee Ann Rimes), CCMA’s Entertainer of the Year and New Artist of the Year, and as “the brightest newcomer to the scene” by the Christian Country Research Bulletin. When it comes to fun and faith, Lisa delivers on both. Her charismatic style puts a unique twist on a positive, insightful delivery of her message. Every age is the perfect age to experience Lisa’s music. The deeply personal challenges she has faced and overcome always inspire and uplift. Like many aspiring artists, Lisa launched her career by moving to Nashville in pursuit of her dream. She worked as a studio vocalist and sang in numerous showcases for local Nashville songwriters. Lisa left the Nashville scene to connect with new audiences on the West Coast. After struggling through the challenges and temptations of an entertainer’s lifestyle, Lisa worked to rediscover the inner peace she had lost. “I was full of self-will, running my own show, and believing I knew what was best for my life,” she recalls. Lisa struggled through the process of overcoming the severe consequences caused by her previous lifestyle. She turned her life over to the complete care of God, trusting Him for strength and guidance. Lisa is now a proud mother to a wonderful daughter, and a tireless ambassador for hope, renewal and God’s love.
Billy Wright
Bill Wright will be bringing his unique style of singing back to Cowboy Church this Sunday. Bill has been involved in music most of his life in one form or another. A chance meeting led to his first appearance at Cowboy Church. Cowboy Church producer, Billy Anderson, happened to stop in Bill’s antique shop in Rockwood on a slow day. Bill was picking and singing to pass the time and his talent caught Billy’s ear. Anderson had to explain the concept of Cowboy Church to Bill, which peaked his interest and led to the initial appearance.

Bill has an 11 piece band, which is almost large enough to call an orchestra, named the River Front Band. "We do it for the love of the music," he said. The band performs on special occasions and regularly at the American Legion Hall in Harriman and also at Loudon.

Bill was a square dance caller until about 20 years ago when he decided on a new course in life. He now performs country and gospel music and has just released his newest CD.

Cody McCarver
REAL! That is the word to describe Cody McCarver. In 2007 alone Cody had a #1 Video with his Top 20 hit single "Red Flag". He has had another Top 20 single with his Hit "Through Gods Eyes. These two singles have garnered him 2 Awards, Music Rows Independent Artist and Music Row's Independent Breakout Artist of the year. The song Through Gods Eyes has spawned a documentary film entitled Cody

McCarver Behind the Walls. The film was shot at the prison where Cody's father Bill is incarcerated. If you listen to the single Though Gods Eyes you will hear Cody sing about his parents Bill and Delilah. This is very true story and has brought Cody to work with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America in support of children with inmate parents. Check out the Self Titled CD from Cody McCarver. You wont be sorry.
.

If you call Cody a Good Ole Boy, he will just smile with pride as he was born and raised in Dunlap, Tennessee, a quiet suburb of Chattanooga. His musical career began at age 9, playing piano in a small church. Teaching himself to play multiple instruments, by age 17 he was performing in local Honky Tonks. Even then, he knew what he wanted to do and never stopped pursuing his dream of becoming a singer. He spent two years as the bass guitarist on tour with the legendary Lynn Anderson. The next stepping?stone to recording his self?titled debut album was playing piano with Confederate Railroad. He has played at clubs, fairs and festivals around the nation and around the world. You name the place, Cody has probably been there! Yet his songs still reflect the importance of family values and small town influences. While listening to CODY MCCARVER, you will hear a voice like no other. Sure, everyone picks up pieces along the way, but Cody has blended them into something unique, true to himself and his voice. Gospel, Classic country and Southern Rock are in his blood and can be heard in his songs. The debut project makes you smile with selections like “Red Flag”, a lesson for women, in what to look for in a man, and “Redneck Love Gone Bad”, a total Jerry Springer episode. The mournful ballad “Should Have Been Me” will bring a tear to your eye. But the most talked about cut is the new single “Through God’s Eyes”. McCarver began writing the song about four years ago and it’s based on the life of a homeless man in McCarver’s hometown of Dunlap, Tennessee.

McCarver’s daughter was concerned about this homeless man and was asking her father about him. McCarver told his daughter that this homeless man is the same as you and I through God’s eyes, and the concept for the song was born. McCarver worked on the song and wrestled with a final version, until an idea came about from his friend, Davey Smith, suggesting that the next verse should be about a guy in prison, which allowed McCarver to draw on a true?life experience about his dad, who is serving a life sentence for first?degree murder for shooting the man who was having an affair with his wife. When his father was in the holding cell for the crime he told McCarver that he guessed there was no chance that he would go to heaven now. McCarver’s dad had always been a church?going, hardworking man
who had never been in any trouble, so he wrote the last verse as way of bringing comfort to the elder McCarver.

Cody’s live show is wide open with lots of energy and when the beer starts flowing on the tailgates, Cody might just have one with you! He has learned a lot along the way from his heroes and friends, but his live show is pure CODY McCARVER. From front porches to the stages of America, you can get CODY McCARVER and there’s no doubt you will come away saying, WOW
