Y96.9 and Oakwood Homes have teamed up once again, not only to throw the Holiday party of the year, but to raise some money for the kids at St. Jude as well. Our annual Acoustic Christmas is back!!!
This year's event will take place December 3rd at Cowboy’s in Downtown Colorado Springs, and once again, we have some of the brightest new stars from Nashville! Here's the lineup;
- Mitchell Tenpenny
- Jameson Rodgers
- Tenille Townes
- Brandon Ratcliff
Five incredible acts, one stage, and it only costs you $9.69… Better yet, ALL of that money goes straight to the kids at St Jude Children Research Hospital.
Each week, we'd also like you to get to know one of the artists a little better. Today it's Brandon Ratcliff!
Brandon is a 24 year old singer-songwriter and artist from Cotton Valley, Louisiana. Son of Suzanne Cox of the legendary Cox Family, he was surrounded by music and began to hone his craft from a very young age.
His talents quickly attracted the music business machine in Nashville, but at the age of 20, he decided to turn down a publishing deal and work on his craft….he would not take the quick and easy route. In the process of finding great co-writing partners, he befriended Pete Good (producer and co-writer) and AJ Babcock (co-writer) who would go on to become his closest friends outside of the studio. Together, they honed Ratcliff’s musical talent drawing from country, R&B and classic rock to Ratcliff’s personal inspirations such as Stevie Wonder and John Mayer.
Eventually, Grammy-award winning producer Shane McAnally teamed up with them, and the result is a bold, fresh look at the seasons of relationships delivered by an artist with a clear point of view and a distinctive sound.
