Hallelujah! It's time for another Featured Artist Friday!

We have three great Texas groups lined up for this week's Featured Artist Friday.  We'll be starting off this week's segment with a band led by one Cody Johnson of Sebastopol, Texas: the Cody Johnson Band!  He won "New Male Vocalist of the Year, 2011" from the Texas Regional Music Awards and we will be adding his "Texas Kind of Way" to our playlist!  Up next, we have Austin-based Reckless Kelly and their "I Hold the Bottle, You Hold the Wheel" from their Somewhere in Time album.  We will also be including a song from Eleven Hundred Springs called "This Ain't the First Time (But It's the Worst Time)" from their 2011 Eight the Hard Way record.

To recap for this week:

  • "Texas Kind of Way" - the Cody Johnson Band
  • "I Hold the Bottle, You Hold the Wheel" - Reckless Kelly
  • "This Ain't the First Time (But It's the Worst Time)" - Eleven Hundred Springs
Every Friday, we will be adding a few new songs to the KBEC rotation.  You can hear our choices for the week on the Afternoon Drive.  If you have any comments or suggestions on who we should or shouldn't add, feel free to drop us an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
