BGSTRONG.US BENEFIT CONCERT
JANUARY 14, 2022 @ SKYPAC
Warner Music Nashville’s rising country band, BEXAR (pronounced ‘bear’), comprised of Chris Ryan (lead vocals/guitar) and Bowling Green, KY's own Logan Turner (vocals/banjo/guitar), is forging country tradition into something stronger, sharper and more refined with their major label debut EP Pronounced BEAR, available everywhere now. Produced by award-winning producers Ross Copperman and Luke Laird, the six-track EP showcases BEXAR’s fresh and expressive sound, with all tracks co-written by at least one band member. The EP is already receiving stellar reviews from Billboard, Rolling Stone and more, with MusicRow proclaiming “…put this on your playlist at once” and naming the duo in their 2022 Next Big Thing.
With his poetic storytelling and smooth harmonies, 21 year old singer-songwriter Mills vividly spins tales of young love, happiness and heartbreak. With a distinctive style that evokes Laurel Canyon in the 70s’, Mills emerges as a troubadour for the modern age. Born and raised in Bowling Green, Kentucky; and having spent time in both Nashville and Los Angeles, Mills’ southern influences have been brightened by the Los Angeles sun resulting in buoyant melodies tinged with nostalgia. Mills has released two EP's this year, Train of Thoughts & Final Thoughts, and has amassed over 15 million global streams. He wrapped his 2021 breakout year opening up on two sold out tours with the Peach Tree Rascals & Surfaces. Mills has been co-signed by the likes of Justin Bieber, Noah Cyrus, Dominic Fike, etc.

Dusty’s brand of witty wordplay has attracted a sizeable amount of supporters, the “Dust Gang,” that range from die-hard rap heads to party-minded frat kids. His music transcends color lines and embraces creativity with an adventurous mix of funk, soul and rock grooves. Dusty Leigh is the voice of the new generation.
