The new-school country scene will take over Midnight Rodeo when Mobile’s Sonny Bama brings his down-home hip-hop style to the club’s stage. This artist’s best work has been his collaborative efforts with other local artists. Bama joined forces with Ryan Balthrop for his local hit “The Bottom,” and for his single “On My Own,” Bama recruited Wes Bayliss. He also recorded “Let Go” with Jelly Roll and Josh Ewing. His locals-only lyrical content and catchy music should please the local crowd.
Colt Ford has not visited his Azalea City fans in quite some time. The modern country artist has been on the road performing tracks from his latest effort, “Answer to No One: The Colt Ford Classics.” This album has been described as “a superior collection of 14 real-life story-songs written by a country artist who paved his own way with his unique style.” With his hybridized country/hip-hop sound and a charismatic stage presence, Ford should have no problem winning the hearts of his Midnight Rodeo audience
