Chuck Wimer grew up in Arizona, but after 13 years in the military he made his home in Texas. After serving in the U.S.Army and watching two of his three children graduate High School and move out on their own, Chuck has finally decided that he is ready to focus on his lifelong passion in country music. And what a decision it was. His first single Take You Anywhere found its way to number 63 on the Texas Country Music Chart and number 4 on the Texas Internet Radio Chart. This success led to the opening of some doors with his live shows almost tripling. More good news followed when Homerun made it to number 32 on the TCMC. On March 8, 2021 Chuck was pleasantly surprised to find his newest single "Homerun" in the number 1 spot on the Texas Internet Radio Chart, a huge milestone and by his own words, "unbelievable and humbling experience." Homerun is a story that combines his life and his brother’s life. The military references are a part of Chuck’s life. The baseball references are a part of his brother’s life. In fact, the artwork for Homerun is a picture of his brother hitting his first home run of the season in 2014 at Dallas Baptist University. Chuck has been married to his high school sweetheart, Jaimie, since 1997. They have three children. Besides music, faith, family, and football round out Chuck’s life.
Ariel Hutchins is a Texas singer/songwriter and performing artist. Her music celebrates her West Texas heritage and embodies her love of country music past and present. Ariel was born in Abilene where she spent her early childhood singing in Church. When she was eight, family tragedy placed her in the foster care system. The highlight of those years was the gift of a guitar which she received on her eleventh birthday and which she spent every free moment with thereafter, teaching herself to pick and play. At fifteen, Ariel was adopted by Billy and Rebecca and moved to Cross Plains, Texas, to live with her new forever family. There she often sang the National Anthem at high school sports events and performed acoustically in local venues. Upon graduation, Ariel formed her own band and began playing honkytonks, bars and festivals throughout the state. The Ariel Hutchins Band has opened for Kevin Fowler, Stoney Larue and William Clark Green. “Wine Won’t Work” is the first song from Ariel’s upcoming CD to be released as a single. It has been enthusiastically received by Ariel’s fans on the road as well as by her rapidly increasing media following. Ariel is married to her high school sweetheart Blake and together they are following their dreams and raising their young family in a small North Texas town. Ariel is an on-stage advocate for Foster children everywhere. Through her music she hopes to encourage those following her to pursue their every aspiration as she has, whether it be for bright lights or white picket fences... or both.
Hailing from Phoenix but having transplanted to LA, Leann Skoda has long been drawn to the rawness and simplicity of country and bluegrass music. Ironic when you learn it was Mariah Carey’s four-octave range that wowed Skoda as a little girl, and she has spent much of her life singing in choirs.
While her vocals have drawn comparisons to women such as Neko Case and Emmylou Harris, as a songwriter she has shown the innate ability to craft a song not unlike Miranda Lambert or Bandy Clark. The lyrics certainly walk the story but the gaps, they say almost as much as the lyrics and the accompanying guitar colors in the spaces as opposed to defining them. - Ken Churilla Download
Rooted in Texas blues, Americana, and a dose of outlaw country, Renna’s new release “All My Life” sweeps you off to a red dirt road riding into a promising sunset both musically and lyrically. The hook will have you from the the get-go with Renna’s soulful vocals and a melody that can only come from an honest songwriter transporting you to a peaceful path of hope and love. Renna has captured something here that few singer-songwriters rarely accomplish. It always seems to have that ring of truth that can only come from personal experience. It’s a magical little tune that’ll leaving a spirited residual long after the song is over. – Derek Sitter Download
