Jason Mathews: Jason Matthews was born in Harrell’s Store, North Carolina. At fifteen he saw Eric Clapton on television and became obsessed with writing songs. His first industry fan, WRFX DJ Macon in Charlotte, gave Matthews’ demo to legendary musical comedy team Pinkard and Bowden, who subsequently invited Matthews to be their roadie and in-house writer. After a year on the road, he settled in Nashville to pursue his dream of becoming a hit songwriter. In 2006, he landed his first Number One with Billy Currington’s version of his song, “Must Be Doin’ Something Right.” This earned him the coveted Music Row Magazine Breakthrough Writer Of The Year award and several ASCAP awards. Other songs penned by Matthews include “Country Man,” “Drinkin’ Beer And Wastin’ Bullets,” and “Muckalee Creek Water” (Luke Bryan), “Break Down Here” (Julie Roberts), “One Night Stand” (Trace Adkins), “That’s Just Jesse” (Kevin Denney), “Life Happened” (Tammy Cochran), and “The Ball” (James Otto), “Lonely Eyes”(Chris Young), and “One Last Time”(Dusty Drake).

Rebecca Lynn Howard: Crossover country-pop singer, and two time Grammy Award Winner, Rebecca Lynn Howard grew up in Salyersville, KY, and moved to Nashville in 1997, where she began a career as a songwriter. Her compositions have been recorded by singers like Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, Julianne Hough, John Michael Montgomery, and Clay Aiken, to name a few. Howard continues to produce and develop new talent in and outside of Nashville. Also a founding member of the Loving Mary Band, who are currently backing up Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Rebecca is the bassist and one of three vocalists in the band. Rebecca is currently working on her new album titled “I’m Not Who You Think I Am”, with singles slated to drop in early 2024. 

Joel Shewmake: Joel Shewmake moved to Nashville from Cookeville, TN in 2001 to pursue a career in music. He signed his first publishing deal soon after and has since written songs professionally for BMG, Warner Chapel, Amylase Entertainment and BMG/Chrysalis. Joel’s songs have been recorded by artists such as Brad Paisley, Montgomery-Gentry, Gary Allan, Craig Campbell, Lonestar, Trace Adkins, Jerrod Niemann, Jacob Bryant, and Cody Johnson.

Muletown In The Round

Feb 15, 2024

Jenna LaMaster (Host): Jenna is a Northern California native who started pursuing her musical career after being a rodeo circuit barrel racer for most of her early life. She grew up singing in church, but always had a deep seeded love and respect for 90’s country music. Picking up Grandpa’s guitar at 17 years old, she began playing and couldn't put it down. She fell in love with the art of songwriting and storytelling, and quickly started writing her own music. Moving from California to Texas to Tennessee, Jenna has been singing and songwriting with passion and currently writes for Sheltered Music and 50 Egg Music publishing. She has penned her first two cuts as a songwriter on Big Loud Records recording artist Ashland Craft, “Your Mama Still Does” and “Leaving You Again” which was released in 2021. She also wrote several songs released as singles in 2023 by country artists on the rise, including “Bad Whiskey” (Faren Rachels featuring Craft), “Danced with the Devil” (Craft), and “Place for Me” (Kasey Tyndall featuring Dylan Marlowe). Jenna also released her latest single, "Drunk Thoughts," in October of 2023. Learn more at jennalamaster.com.

Marla Cannon-Goodman: Marla was raised in Kingston Springs, Tennessee, where she had a front row seat for country music history as she watched her father, Buddy Cannon, shepherd the careers of new and legendary artists as a producer, songwriter and record label executive. Now, she has earned her own place as one of country music’s most-beloved and respected hit-makers. Since her first cut by Sammy Kershaw in 1996, Marla has been making country music history of her own with songs recorded by artists such as George Strait, Eddie Arnold, Eric Church, Billy Currington, Mindy Smith, Kenny Chesney, and Sara Evans. Marla’s chart topping hits include Lee Ann Womack’s number one smash “The Fool,” Tracy Byrd’s number one “Ten Rounds With José Cuervo,” and Rodney Atkins’ number one hit “Cleaning This Gun.” She found further chart success with Blake Shelton’s top-15 hit single “Don't Make Me.” You can also find her song “Unfair Weather Friend” on the Willie Nelson/Merle Haggard duet album, "Django and Jimmie."

Kasey Tyndall: North Carolina native Kasey Tyndall is known for her edgy, rock-infused, hard-hitting country sound and singles like “Everything is Texas,” “Bar That’s Open” (co-written with Ashley McBryde and Lainey Wilson), “Double Edged Sword,” and “Who I Ain't.” Singer-songwriter Kasey Tyndall is making her stamp on country music with her edgy, rock-infused, hard-hitting country sound. Tyndall first picked up the guitar in sixth grade after being assigned a writing project in school. She taught herself a few chords and learned she could convey her words to music. Since then, she fell in love with the craft and has been writing and performing ever since. Tyndall has shared the stage with renowned musicians like Joe Diffie, Kane Brown, Jamey Johnson, Stryper, Drake White and more. Her musical influences range from Miranda Lambert and Alison Krauss to Avril Lavigne and Joan Jett, reflecting her innate ability to resonate among hard rock and roll and country fans alike. Tapped as a “hard-rock country badass” by Rolling Stone, Tyndall continues to write and record new music in Nashville, TN. Learn more at kaseytyndall.com.
