John R. Miller and the Engine Lights at the Red Barn Radio Show Review

In my humble opinion, there’s no one writing better songs right now than John R. Miller.  The West Virginia native has been an underground icon for years now, and is the walking, talking definition of a song-writers songwriter.  It’s no coincidence that his touring buddy Tyler Childers is always letting the world know on his Facebook how special John’s work truly is.

An inside look at Ward Davis and Tennessee Jet show at the Bell Theatre

Two years ago, I {John Grace} was having a conversation with Mainstreet Pineville Director, Jacob Roan. He had just finished completing substantial renovations to the Bell Theater, which is a beautiful, 1950’s style movie theater in courthouse square in downtown Pineville. It had gone from being left vacant and in disrepair to shining like new penny. It was really inspiring

Make no mistake: though
