About Tim Goodin
Tim Goodin is a singer/songwriter straight out of the Hills of South East Kentucky. He grew up wandering the hills and “hollers” of the Appalachian landscapes. It is here his love for music began. The old mountain hymnals he grew up listening to is what helped develop his unique sound. At 18, he continued in the family tradition and became the 4th generation of his family to work in the coal mines of Kentucky. After the downturn of the industry and limited economic opportunity’s he and his wife Leanna decided to migrate south to Alabama, to continue his mining career in the Sand and Gravel industry.
His Debut self released single “Pills and Poverty” tells the tragic tale plaguing so many rural community’s today. Tim Said, “I tend to write about what I know and experience and what I hear other people have experienced. With unreleased songs titled, “Hardwork and Misery” and “Fishin’ Hole” his roots run deep in the Appalachian way of life. “We’re working to get more songs released, it’s just a slow process when you’re self producing.”
About Erin Enderlin
It’s unheard of for an aspiring songwriter/college student to pitch a song in the middle of class and actually get it cut (Monday Morning Church) — and by Alan Jackson no less. But that unusual and auspicious start launched the career of singer/songwriter Erin Enderlin.
Since then her songs have populated albums by Luke Bryan, Terri Clark, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis, and Lee Ann Womack as well as her album, Faulkner County, a nod to her Arkansas roots and appreciation for William Faulkner.
Erin Enderlin worked as an usher at the famed Grand Ole Opry house and then was asked to perform on the Opry in 2013. She was introduced to the crowd by none other than Little Jimmy Dickens, who also signed her guitar that very night.
Erin Enderlin has won several Arkansas Country Music Awards, including Female Vocalist and Songwriter of the Year. She was recently featured on Elton John’s podcast, Rocket Hour. She was also named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country Music in 2021.
About Cody Lee Meece
Cody Lee Meece is a songwriter and composer from Somerset, KY. He spent the majority of his teenage years rambling from couch to couch. At 18, he took a Greyhound bus to Nashville, Tennessee only to find himself living on the streets for four months in pursuit of his dreams. After a short stint back home he hit the road again, spending time bouncing around Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.
During his travels he picked up different flavors and styles of songwriting and storytelling. He has developed a deep, earthy, intimate and very vulnerable writing style. Scars and tattoos tell his story of a life spent on the run in the dark places, only to come out clean and wise.
A friend once quoted “Cody Lee makes the kind of music that doesn’t make Waylon roll over in his grave.” We would have to agree.
Cody most recently received the 2022 Appalachian Arts and Entertainment Award for Best Guitarist, as well as the 2021 Lexi Award for Album of the Year. Cody will have you tapping your feet one minute, and ripping your heart our the next.
