He launched his musical journey in Lawrenceburg, TN, a small town south of Nashville, where he grew up listening to the Allman Brothers, George Jones, and George Strait. In 2015, he played over 100 dates and is well on his way to do the same in 2016 â€“ playing with Florida-Georgia Line, Dustin Lynch, The Cadillac Three, David Nail and many more.
The edgy energy of Powell’s songs makes them leap from the speakers and command attention. Live, Powell’s high-octane concerts are rapidly earning him a reputation as one of Nashville’s most talented artist and writers. Possessing a distinctive voice, teeming with both a sense of playful mischief and serious intent, Powell leads a new breed of country artists shaping today’s musical landscape.
As a songwriter, Powell has earned the respect of hit writers such as Casey Beathard, Michael Heeney, Jaren Johnston, and Jeremy Stover, which has helped him secured cuts from artists like Chase Rice, Jordan Rager and Jon Wolfe, as well as cuts he co-wrote for his own record.
