Ronnie Williams and the Carter Family Sound have been performing in and around the Central Virginia region for the past 25 years. Though some of the group’s members have changed over time, Ronnie has been playing and singing Carter Family music since 1975. The Carter Family Sound has performed at many schools, churches and fairs around the area. They have also been featured performers on the television show “Song of the Mountains.” Ronnie plays the autoharp, guitar and accordion, honoring the “Carter Scratch” style of playing guitar and autoharp. It was Mother Maybelle who created the Carter Scratch style out of the necessity to play lead and rhythm parts at the same time. During Ronnie’s career, he has shared the stage at one time or another with all of the Carters as well as “adopted Carter” and June’s husband, Johnny Cash. Ronnie is joined each year at the Carter Family Festival by Lorrie Carter Bennett, daughter of Anita. The two also collaborate for shows in the...

“Andrew has a beautiful voice and Stormchaser is a solid, heartfelt song.” – Lee Dannay, Thirty Tigers “With a voice like that, we’d say Andrew Pope is going places in country music!” – Country Rebel Clothing “This song and Pope’s voice is very much in the same vein of Chris Stapleton and even a little bit like fellow Alabama country artist Jamey Johnson.” – Country Perspective Real. Genuine. Those are two words to describe country music rambler Andrew Pope. Born and raised in the Northeast pines of Alabama, Andrew Pope has proven to be another natural-born talent from the same region that produced country music legends the Louvin Brothers and the super group Alabama.

Ten albums into an already acclaimed career, Stephen Simmons sharpens his rootsy folk-rock with A World Without, a record that mixes the twang of country music — a genre that provided the soundtrack for his childhood in small-town Tennessee — with the sharp observations of a singer/songwriter and the stomp of rural, roadhouse rock & roll. A road warrior with an audience on both sides of the Atlantic, Simmons has spent most of his adulthood on stage, playing songs in ten different countries along the way. Recorded with members of his touring band, A World Without explores a life lived on the run, taking a look at the intersection between art, commerce, love, and travel. The songs are equal parts biography and fiction, with Simmons shining a light on those who travel and create for a living. There are tracks about Americans crossing the country during the Gold Rush, about puritans making a voyage overseas, about lovers becoming parents, and about Simmons himself. A World...
