1. Kyle Cruz-How to Fly
Hometown: Oklahoma City, OK
You will love Kyle if you like: John Mayer, Brian McKnight, Stevie Wonder
How to Fly: This album was a labor of love. And man was it worth the wait. After recording and writing for two years Kyle has put together a debut album that most artists would only dream of. From the first song 'Mexico' to the heartbreaking 'Hot Chocolate' Kyle impresses with awesome guitar melodies and even smoother vocals. Keep this guy on your radar!
BDB's Favorite: I'm not Ready

2. Brain Milson-Saltwater Cowboy
Hometown: Odessa, TX
Genre: Traditional Honky Tonk Country
You will Love Brian if you like: Kevin Fowler, Hank Williams, George Strait
Saltwater Cowboy-Brain is true country. While you might hear him cover a few Top 40 songs (or maybe some Prince) but his traditional sound is a welcome escape from what is on country radio currently. The current single on country radio is called Saltwater Cowboy. A great summer song. Brian's debut album called 'Walking a Thin Line' featured 9 of 10 songs that Brian wrote himself. If you are into Willie, Waylon and Merle...do not miss Brian Milson. Check his tour schedule with dates in Austin and Fort Worth soon.
BDB's Favorite: Outlaw's Prayer
Radio Worthy: Saltwater Cowboy, Come Undone

3. Keegan McInroe-From the Wall & In the City
Hometown: Lubbock, TX
Genre: Americana, Blues, Roots
You will love Keegan if you like: Bob Dylan,Tom Waits
From the Wall & In the City: This is Keegan's second album as a solo artist. He started a band called Catfish Whiskey that put out one album and then he went solo with Mozelle. While the lyrics in the current album might be a little to political for some I prefer to listen to the music and get my groove on. Keegan recruited a cast of musicians from Fort Worth and the Metroplex to put together this rocking, play it loud journey.
BDB's Favorite: Dogs
