Like new strings on a well-traveled guitar, Bernie Nelson is both timely and timeless. Bernie’s rich, country vocals and well-crafted lyrics comfortably draw you in at his sellout shows.

With his roots seated deep in the truest form of country music, Bernie attributes his selection and conviction with his songs to his closeness with country’s best like Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, Townes Van Zant and the more modern Garth Brooks and Chris LeDoux.

By the age of seventeen, Dennis "Haxaw" Bottoms began performing at the Opryland Theme Park in Nashville, Tennessee. Working with his band, The Silver Strings, Dennis toured the country. He would later go on to join up with and become a feature part of many country artists’ shows, including artists such as Dolly Parton, Jerry Reed, Porter Wagoner, Bob Luman, and Jeannie Seely. He elevated his career when he became a member and music director for the Louisiana Hayride, which helped him land a major writing and recording position at Warner Bros. Records. Since his time at Warner, Dennis has continued to stay active in music and is currently working on new projects that keep him motivated to continually take his skills to new levels.
