About Joe Lasher -

Born and raised in Weaverville, NC, country music entertainer and songwriter Joe Lasher has been calling the stage home since he was a teenager. Following in the footsteps of his grandfather, a southern gospel singer, and father, the member of a 90’s rock band, Joe has set his sights on capturing the attention of country music lovers. 

Drawing inspiration from icons such as Rodney Atkin, Eric Church, Jon Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams, Joe’s music is influenced by a variety of genres ranging from traditional country to gospel and from rock to heavy metal, creating a sound that is all his own. Joe has been actively touring the country since the age of 16, where he is focused on creating a full-sensory show filled with big sound and bright lights giving his audience a reason to sing and dance. 

Already, Joe has shared the stage with Brett Young, Locash, Ashley McBryde, Russell Dickerson, Hardy, and Old Dominion. His latest single “Messed up” was released in February and will be followed by an acoustic EP titled The Waiverly Sessions, available in April.

Between his time on the stage and in the studio, Joe lives on and works a 300-acre farm outside of Nashville, where he hunts and fishes like every true country boy should.

About Kaitlyn Baker -

Born and raised in the small town of Pound, VA, Kaitlyn Baker rises from the depths of the coal mines where her family has worked for generations and where the coal dust covers more than just the birds in a veneer of black. Baker has always known that singing would carry her far beyond the Appalachian peaks that she calls home. Referred to as a modern day “coal miner’s daughter,” her pure country voice rings of true and her songwriting rivals Nashville’s finest. 

Baker got her start by singing in church, but she also began to perform professionally, as a young girl. By the time she was 14, she had recorded three self-produced albums, which were sold at live performances. Though she is a country artist, she is steeped in musical influences spanning beyond. 

Baker’s debut single “Burn” charted on Music Row’s Breakout Chart in 2015 and inspired the creation of Kaitlyn Baker’s BURN Sauce, a hot sauce produced by Pepper Palace in Sevierville, Tennessee.  Her follow up singles “Coal Train” and “To Pieces” garnered national attention on music industry charts and media outlets.  In 2016 her self-penned “Heart of Appalachia” song was adopted as the official theme song of the Heart of Appalachia Tourism Authority, a nonprofit organization that promotes tourism.

On “Blackbird” Baker’s voice soars. The six songs, all co-penned by Kaitlyn, are songs about life and love. They show impressive growth, both lyrically and sonically, for the artist who began winning regional talent contests when she was just seven years old, and made national wave with a song called “Coal Train” before her eighteenth birthday.

Baker has performed coast to coast, and has opened for Brad Paisley, Tanya Tucker, Craig Morgan, Brett Eldredge, Travis Tritt, Billy Currington, Chase BryantRhonda Vincent, Jim Lauderdale and many others. Notable appearances by Baker include Country Jam Colorado, the Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Young Artist Awards in Los Angeles, California, Findlay Market – Cincinnati Reds Opening Day parade, and "Song of the Mountains," a nationally syndicated public television concert series. 

2020 is looking to be one of the most exciting years so far as she is about to embark on a European tour, playing various festivals through the UK, Italy, Holland and others. Baker is hitting the airwaves on Country Hits Radio with Baylen Leonard. Aside from touring, Kaitlyn is back in the studio to record new music which will be released very soon. The future is looking very bright for this ‘Modern Day Coal Miner’s Daughter!’.
