In the last few years alone, Giovannie & The Hired Guns have grown from a massively beloved local live act to an undeniable new force on the national rock scene. Formed back when frontman Giovannie Yanez was working the counter at a pawnshop, the Stephenville, Texas-based band has amassed millions of streams almost entirely through word-of-mouth, thanks in no small part to their unforgettable live show—an electrifying spectacle that invariably leaves audiences sweat-drenched and ecstatic.
With their high-octane collision of rock-and-roll and country, Giovannie & The Hired Guns are now at work on a hotly anticipated new album showcasing their hard-hitting sound, emotionally raw storytelling, and the kind of authentically gritty energy that’s sorely missing from rock music today.
It’s hard to imagine a world where you can get a heady breath of fresh air before any of the dust settles. Until you meet Grace Tyler.
The brand new country singer-songwriter has never let the dust settle, just like she sings in her recent single “Dust,” which is exactly what Nashville needs right now. A refreshing voice with a novel perspective on falling in and out of love, and moving on when staying put was never an option.
“I’m proud of where I come from, but I was raised up to go where the road runs on and on and on. I never let the dust settle, never made for slowing down,” Tyler sings on “Dust.” And it’s more than just what she sings. It’s who she is.
At just 6 years old, Tyler was singing Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” at a kid’s karaoke night near her hometown of Frisco, Texas. By 14, she was playing venues across the Texas country music red dirt circuit. By 16, she’d caught the attention of some Nashville music industry executives. By 17, she was coming to Nashville to start writing songs, cutting music, and getting ready to start Belmont University. And now? Her music is as ready as she is.
After landing in Nashville after high school, Tyler managed to balance the life of a college student with that of an aspiring singer-songwriter. So while she spent her days on campus, she spent her nights and weekends performing with residencies at Whiskey Row and The Twelve Thirty Club, and gigging around town at places like Whiskey Jam, the Listening Room Cafe, 3rd and Lindsley, Tin Roof, plus fairs and music festivals all over the south. “I was so shy as a kid, but for some reason, give me a microphone and a stage and this whole new person comes out. That’s why I felt very drawn to this,” Tyler said of her Nashville home. “It felt like I belonged here.

Born in Lubbock and raised in the country outside of a town called Paducah, Grady Spencer’s roots dig deep into Texas soil. By day, Spencer is a superintendent for a commercial construction company. By any other time, he’s songwriter and front-man of Grady Spencer & The Work.
The Work was originally formed in 2013 on the stage of Paradox Church in Fort Worth, Texas. Drummer Blake Sager was joined by bassist Johnny Hatcher in 2016, followed by guitarist Tyler Martin in 2018. The Work’s music reflects its members: honest, good-timing, with a nod to blue-collar roots.
In 2013, the band recorded and self-produced its first album at 1916 Studios in Kyle, Texas. Sleep featured Spencer and Trevor Powell on guitar and vocals, Blake Atwell on guitar, Sager on drums, and Josh Brandenburg on bass. The album was released that same year and was the band’s first introduction to the Fort Worth music scene. “Things to Do” was eventually picked up by the Fort Worth Visitors Bureau via Tom Martens, and in 2017 the city sent Spencer and The Work to Niles City Sound to rerecord and release the track as a single.
Sophomore record The Line Between was primarily tracked at January Sound in Dallas, Texas. The band worked with Magnolia Records and released the album in 2016. Spencer’s vocals and guitar were once again accompanied by Powell on guitar and Sager on drums, with Steve Moore on bass, producer Ryan Tharp on guitar, and Cody Culberson singing harmonies. This album carried the band beyond Fort Worth city limits—a following started to crop up across the state, and numbers rose on streaming platforms, catapulting The Work to their next album.
Celebrate, The Work’s most recent album was recorded with Niles City Sound in Fort Worth, Texas in 2018. This time Spencer was joined by Hatcher on bass and vocals, Martin and producer Austin Jenkins on guitar, and Sager on drums.
Grant fell in love with music as a young kid on the swing set in his backyard with the radio playing through his headphones. On the brink of adolescence, he began playing and writing songs on guitar and piano. Over the years, his edges were sharpened by many nights spent playing in bars, cafes, and living rooms. What’s left is a tapestry of soulful sound with roots in Americana, jazz, and blues.
This Jazz Trio was born out of a group of individuals with great ambition and a positive outlook on their musical journey. Coming from varied backgrounds, they came together to collaborate on a shared vision.
They’ve found great joy and satisfaction in making music and sharing it with fans and people who care to listen. Finding success in the music industry is anything but easy, but their combined 150 years of musical experience have fueled their creative journey.
Their hope is to stay true to their main objective, which is to make music they can be proud of.

Gary P. Nunn has been taking Texas to the country and Texas country to the world for some 40 years now, establishing himself as an icon of Lone Star music. A founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970’s that changed the face of popular music, Nunn is also an independent music pioneer who continues to oversee his own record label and song publishing companies, manage his own career (with the help of his wife Ruth), and play almost every weekend at top music venues throughout Texas and beyond.
His composition “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades. It’s no wonder that All Music Guide hails him as “a Texas music institution.”

Hailing from Dallas, Grades Of Absolute Truth (Justin Griffith) is a self-help soulful indie artist who has been writing and creating a unique brand since 2005.
