Guest Judge: Kansas Stone

 
Kansas Stone’s Brian Vain and Matt Davey grew up with a major country influence from the likes of Garth Brooks, Randy Travis, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and more… add the rock & roll edge that came from listening to Bon Jovi and Aerosmith, throw in their own personal touch, and you end up with the music we’re all about to hear a lot more of soon.
Since the day Brian and Matt started working on country music they have been putting in the work every artist before them has put in to make their mark.
Kansas Stone brings a mix of catchy melodies and well-crafted original songs to the stage, and it’s clearly appreciated with glowing show reviews, and country music fans always anxious for more music from the duo.
