Thursday Night Live

There is a $5 cover charge for this event.

Inspired by the Rock 'n' Roll Greats and Red Dirt Legends, Austin Meade tastefully blends bluesy guitars and deliberate vocals to deliver a familiar, yet fresh,sound in a 4-piece package. A 2015 Agricultural Business graduate of Texas A&M University, and former drummer, Meade's appeal reaches not only to the co-eds of the next generation, but simultaneously waxes nostalgic for those longing for the ambient guitars of the 70s. Meade's current EP "Heartbreak Coming," features the singles "Born With A Broken Heart" and "Courage To Talk."

After several successful song writes, Adam made the move to Nashville, and his career gained traction. SiriusXM’s The Highway selected Adam’s “I Put It On Ya” as an On The Horizon track and shortly thereafter he was offered a publishing deal with Sony/ATV and earned cuts from Darius Rucker and Kane Brown.
