About the Storytellers

Heidi Newfield

Heidi Newfield’s voice and presence in country music first established her as the center stage star of Trick Pony’s emergence in 2001. More than just a pretty face, she became famous for her explosive stage presence, work ethic and dedication to her fans. Heidi has a collaborative history of platinum selling albums, Top 20 singles, ACM and AMA Awards, and Grammy nominations to credit.

Leslie Satcher

No other female Nashville singer-songwriter is more respected or more revered than Leslie Satcher. Primarily known as a country singer and songwriter, her talents cross all genres. She’s written or co-written songs that have been recorded by the likes of Willie Nelson to Ariana Grande. Her typical year will include more than 150 songwriting sessions and 65 live performances.

Sharon Vaughn

Sharon Vaughn started her career in music as a recording artist. After being discovered by the late Mel Tillis, Sharon spent years as a session singer until her first self-penned song became a hit for the Oak Ridge Boys, followed by MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN COWBOYS for Waylon Jennings. She was honored for her contribution to music by the Country Music Hall of Fame as a Poets and Prophets, Legendary Songwriter.

Big Al Anderson

Big Al’s commanding voice and jaw-dropping guitar virtuosity brought distinction to the acclaimed band NRBQ for over two decades. His songs have been recorded by a diverse mix of nearly 900 artists from The Allman Brothers to Bonnie Raitt to ZZ Top. With a catalog of songs that have sold over 40 million to date, Musician Magazine named him one of the top 100 guitarists of the 20th century.

Jay Boy Adams

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Jay Boy Adams does more than just refute F. Scott Fitzgerald’s maxim that there are no second acts in American lives. He not only proves that a musical artist can enjoy a second musical career even more fulfilling than his impressive first time around, but also just how rich an American life can be through the many chapters of his fascinating life story.
