Dark Horses Songwriters Showcase


Peachtree Entertainment Presents:  Dark Horses featuring: Channing Wilson, Adam Hood, Erik Dylan and David Kennedy.  


From a small town in northwest Georgia, Channing learned about real life American good times and hardships.  He's not afraid to tell you about it either.  From his songs like "poor Man's Cocaine" referring to the methamphetamine taking over rural America, to songs like "Crazy Over You" which is a throwback love song to the era of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, Channing's voice along with his lyrics stand alone in a time of mass produced "throwaway" singers and songwriters.

Brought up on the real side of the tracks by two hard working "dirt collar" parents, he had plenty of opportunities to learn real life at an early age.  Channing says "I didn't have a musical family.  My mother is a pretty good singer, but an even better worker.  So, I found music later than most artists."  Finding music later for Channing didn't slow down his passion of it.  Learning guitar at 17 and starting writing shortly after.  "I came across a book of short poems my mother had written before I was born, and after reading them I was so inspired to explore my own creative side."


With a John Denver grin and mind full of Alabama attitude, Adam Hood knows the beautiful mess of blue-collar love and everyone on Music Row wants in.  Tracks from his critically acclaimed 2011 album 'The Shape of Things' have been cut by Little Big Town, David Nail, Josh Abbott Band, Brian Keane and John Corbett.  The legendary Willie Nelson and Leon Russell have each picked Hood for respective national tours.

Free from his contract with Carnival Music, Hood is taking advantage of his newfound independence with his rough and wild fourth studio album 'Welcome to the Big World'.  With producer Rachel Loy at the helm, the 11-track collecdtion is a biographical masterpiece that ranges from Delbert McClinton roadhouse rock to Kris Kristofferson storyteller folk, with a mix of timeless two-step shuffles.


Erik Dylan, a fourth generation Kansas farmer moved to Nashville with a guitar and a dream.  After 5 years & countless odd jobs Erik was discovered by country artist Kip Moore.  Erik has written songs cut by Kip Moore, Thompson Square, JT Hodges, Austin Webb, and many others.  In 2014 Erik decided to pursue his artist career and has been on the road opening for Eli Young Band & Dwight Yoakam


After years of paying dues everywhere from dives to theaters, Dave Kennedy has descended on Nashville like whirlwind.  With a voice big enough to grab your attention and songs great enough to hold it, the singer-songwriter and East Tennessee native has spent years developing his craft both as a performer and prolific writer all around the Southeast, and is determined to take his place among the new wave of Americana and more traditional country music artists.
