Nashville Recording Artist Rachael Johnson to Appear at Eddie Montgomery’s
With Special Guest Star, Former Mercury Recording Artist, Chris Caskey
Nashville Recording Artist Rachael Johnson will join Lexington, KY native, Chris Caskey for a one night only show this Friday, Nov. 18th at the famed Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse, located in Harrodsburg, KY.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to play this incredible venue! I’ve heard amazing things about the food, people and entertainment at Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse and can’t wait to finally be a part! I am looking forward to bringing our Nashville show to the great state of Kentucky!” – Rachael Johnson
A North Carolina native, Rachael Johnson, grew up in the original “Mayberry”, a place memorialized in Americans hearts as the beloved home town on the Andy Griffith Show. Although she loved NC, her heart was in Nashville and it only took one Garth Brooks concert for Rachael to decide that that’s where she had to be. Within a month of earning her Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice at Chowan University, Rachael would land a job and relocate to an empty apartment not far from Nashville’s famous Music Row and the beginning of living her dream.
Over the next year Rachael would meet other artists, musicians and some of Nashville’s finest hit songwriters giving her the opportunity to assemble a band, perfect a show and hone her writing craft, expanding her catalog of original material. Music was finally paying the bills! She quit her day job and became an in demand solo artist, playing 20 to 25 shows a month in Nashville, surrounding cities and occasionally, out of state, sharing the stage with Country Stars like Jo Dee Messina, Josh Thompson, Little Texas, Dave Gibson, Chris Young, Craig Campbell and Trent Tomlinson to name a few.
She would begin to amass loyal fans, frequenting her full band live shows and the respect of established songwriters by showcasing her own original songs at Nashville’s famed writer’s nights. In 2011, The Rachael Johnson Band had the distinctive honor of being named the weekly house band at Nashville’s world famous Wildhorse Saloon.
Chris Caskey first tasted musical success when he signed an artist development deal with Mercury Records in 1998. A shift in label personnel would end Caskey’s time with the label and find him heading back to Lexington. However, a second chance would come twelve years later. After first hearing Chris Caskey sing at an event at the KY Music Hall of Fame in Aug of 09’, Nashville Artist Corey Frizzell, heir to the Lefty Frizzell musical heritage, teamed with Caskey and quickly began working in Nashville to put a Chris Caskey project together. By November of 2010 Frizzell successfully attained investment and put together a winning team to record, market and promote Caskey, launching his first single “God’s Pocket” to radio, debuting in January of 2011. Caskey’s first single would crossover and top out at #52 on the national Christian Voice Country Gospel Top 100 and currently holds the #98 place on the national Powersource Country Top 100. Chris is presently recording his debut album with Easton Corbin’s famed Producer, Carson Chamberlain, due to be released in winter on 2011.
“Once a generation a true country talent comes along who has the rare ability to sing with nearly impossible vocal licks & raw emotion. George Jones once asked, who’s gonna fill their shoes? After hearing Chris, you will know the shoe fits well.” – Corey Frizzell
