Brantley Gilbert spent his small-town youth listening to a lot of bands outside the confines of country music.

They included local college rockers R.E.M., as well as roots rock such as John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen. Lynyrd Skynyrd was a big influence on Gilbert. He began singing and songwriting at age 13. 

In 2004, Gilbert had a car accident while he was intoxicated. He was 19. The accident could have killed him, even though he escaped without a scratch. He's said that after that, he decided to devote himself to his music and writing songs. The incident later inspired Gilbert's song "Halfway to Heaven" off the album of the same name.

 

 
 

we are PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE LEGENDARY TOBY KEITH AS OUR SATURDAY HEADLINER. FOR THOSE UNFAMILIAR WITH MR. KEITH'S CAREER WE MIGHT ASK WHERE EXACTLY ON THE PLANET MARS HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING AND HAVE YOU PURCHASED A TICKeT FOR DMF 2018 YET? BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO WANT TO MISS THIS. 

HERE'S A LITTLE BIT ABOUT TOBY AND WHY THIS IS SUCH A BIG DEAL..

The Songwriters Hall of Fame inducted Toby Keith two years ago and the Academy of Country Music gave him the Poet's Award this year – exceedingly high songwriting honors amidst a career chock full of them. And with good reason. The list of writer-artists in any genre who have achieved or exceeded the collective airplay Keith has amassed is quite short. Artistic and commercial achievements aren't the reasons he writes, however. Neither are awards. No, songwriting isn't something Toby Keith does. Songwriting is who he is...

MOUNTAIN DEER REVIVAL

Every great sound has to come from somewhere. Red dirt music had its start in Oklahoma, Southern Rock can be traced back to the early American South, while Texas Country clearly defined its roots in its name. So where does Mountain Deer Revival's sound come from? From band members Jake and Jason Coffey, Dale Shuey, Matt Ohm and Connor Edmundson. With an original, genre-expanding sound, few musicians can compare to the originality of this Kansas based band. Their music manages to successfully close the gap between Country Rock, Americana and Bluegrass, while maintaining an honest, independent tone. The band reaches beyond talent, by writing with creativity and performing with passion. With great focus being placed on their lyrics and the feeling of their songs, MDR's music is as much a state of mind as it is a sound.

ADAM CAPPS BAND

 Adam Capps grew up listening to all genres of music and learned at an early age that good music is good music, no matter the genre. In his early teens he picked up an old, red, Danelectro guitar and began to pick away at it. It wasn't long after that, he had written his first few songs. During his attendance at Wichita State University, where he was an accomplished track athlete, he earned a degree in Spanish and Education. He used that degree to begin his first job as a high school Spanish teacher. During the last couple years of college he started performing at smaller venues and parties and gained a following in his hometown of Wichita, Ks. It wasn't until the age of 24 that Adam had the aspirations to pursue a music career.
