Opener: Union Sound Treaty Union Sound Treaty is based out of Morgantown, West Virginia. Outsiders may not exactly view this as the most ideal location for a band to base its music career. However, it does allow the boys to exist on an island of creativity, remain close to their roots, and play out…A LOT. Union Sound Treaty was founded in the latter part of 2015. Charles had searched for months at regional open-mics and songwriter nights to find like-minded musicians who had aspirations of playing original songs for a living. Thanks to a mutual friend, Charles was able to cross paths with Shawn and John. The three soon hatched a plan of starting the group that would eventually become Union Sound Treaty. Charles grew up with Ross and the two spoke often about each other’s music. So, when it came time to find a drummer for the band, Charles knew Ross was the critical piece this band needed. Union Sound Treaty fell upon great fortune in March 2016 when they were given the opportunity to go to Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN. They would begin work on what would become their debut album, Next Year (released November 4th, 2016). In the same room where Chris Stapleton’s Traveler was tracked, the boys of Union Sound Treaty laid the foundations of what would become an impressive debut. “With Next Year you also feel like you’re listening to a record of a band that is only going to continue to get better, and you’ll be listening to them and Charles Godwin for years to come. These guys have a bead on what really resonates in country music with listeners.”- Saving Country Music. Headliner: Sundy Best Sundy Best crafts music that re-imagines timeless classic rock of the ‘70s and ‘80s – think the Eagles and the smart, whiskey-voiced lyrics of Tom Petty and Bob Seger. With Nick on guitar and Kris on cajon, Sundy Best takes that sound, modernizes it in their own unique way by borrowing hints of country and bluegrass, to make it personal. Offstage, the pair are lifelong friends, college athletes and dog-lovers; onstage the musical duo delivers something wholly fresh and original, blending their best influences with personal music histories.
