Travis & Whiskey Jack will be joined by Eric Erdman

Living comfortably under the radar, Travis Meadows is overwhelmingly recognized by top recording artists as a true songwriter. His long list of cuts include country music icons and rockers alike… Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Jake Owen, Blackberry Smoke, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., Wynonna Judd and recently Randy Houser.

He is without a doubt, an artist to the core. However, his story is not one about music, it is a story about life – a narrative on religion, family, addiction, survival, sobriety and freedom with music as the narrator.

Growing up in Jackson, Mississippi, Travis found that life was not on his side right from the beginning. Between the death of his brother, divorce of his parents and a battle with cancer, he was exposed to nothing but pain before he even learned to shave. Music was his sanctuary, while alcohol was his crutch. Raised by his grandparents and the nightlife of the local blues bars, Meadows abused drugs and alcohol for most of his adult life. Even after he became a touring preacher, his addictions steered the wheel all the way to Nashville, Tennessee where he attended rehabilitation multiple times before gaining traction on his career in country music.

Sobriety and songwriting success have brought Travis on a path to a much brighter future than his past. “I’m a riser, I’m a get up off the ground, don’t run and hider,” he sings. Sharing his story of survival across countries and oceans, you can find him on tour, volunteering in treatment centers or preparing the release of his 2016 record.

Eric Erdman is a storyteller with a life that gives him stories to write songs about. His guitar takes him around the world and he can write four songs from one break up. His lyrics are introspective but fun, quirky but accessible, profound and palatable, and they draw listeners in like old friends. With a voice that sounds like JJ Grey and James Taylor, Eric’s career began as the lead singer of the funk rock band, The Ugli Stick. They released four albums, toured the country, and performed on three USO tours. In 2012, Erdman recorded his fist solo album, My Brother’s Keepers, that showed his true essence as a songwriter and performer. He followed that up with Color the Silence, recorded in Australia. A successful Kickstarter campaign funded his new album, Not Slowing Down, that was recorded in Muscle Shoals with eclectic songs that are a mix of 70’s funk, pop rock ballads, and a reggae murder mystery.
 
“To me, being a true artist is being a tracker. You hunt for that next spark that electrifies or inspires you and then you genuinely listen to see where it is going. I wouldn’t say it is leading you per se, but it will tell you where it is headed. It is then up to you to catch up…. So I search for those sparks every day, in every situation…whether it be serious, sad, happy, or funky. And when I find one that lights me up….the chase is on. It is this chase that keeps me from slowing down.”
