Center Stage - Brad Puckett

Meet our newest featured artist, Brad Puckett - A rising star in the country/rock world whose passion and talent for music have landed him some incredible opportunities among some of Country music's greats. 

We enjoyed listening to his 
awesome music, and getting to know him a bit better in this Q&A feature.

Brad Puckett is an East Tennessee native, and proud of his heritage. Brad started out playing the local bar scene in the Tri-Cities Area and writing songs. After several bands and tries at music, he ventured to Nashville in 2011 where he had the good fortune to work with some of the best in the music business, such as  Hall of Fame songwriter Kim Williams, who penned hits  such as  "Ain't Going Down Till The Sun Comes Up" and "Three Wooden Crosses" to name a few. Brad learned the craft of songwriting from Kim Williams and his very talented daughter Amanda Williams who has written "Beer Run" for Garth Brooks and George Jones, and has a cut on Garth Brook's latest album entitled "She's Tired of Boys."
 
Brad worked with Kim and Amanda and producer Buddy Hyatt to co-write Brad's award winning debut album entitled "Brad Puckett", released in 2013 on Phoenix Records. Brad won several awards for this project such as the Nashville Independent Artist of The Year in 2014. This record included a top 100 Billboard charted single "At Least I'm Feeling Again" and a video that has been shown on CMT, GAC, and Zuus Country.
 
Brad went back to the studio working with producer Buddy Hyatt and has released his second national album entitled "Right Here Right Now". His first single "Kiss Me In The Rain" has already charted on the Music Row charts and is climbing up the Billboard charts as well. Brad's songwriting skills has lead to cuts by organizations like NASCAR in 2017. Brad is now working with O'Reilly Auto Parts and will be making appearances at NASCAR tracks around the country.
 
Brad has opened for some of the best acts in the country music genre such as, Garth Brooks, Dustin Lynch, Confederate Railroad, Joe Diffie, Craig Wayne Boyd, Marty Raybon, Larry Gatlin, and Black Stone Cherry.
