Carol Williamson, V.P. of marketing for WYOGA Records, sends this press release about Wyoming Arts Council roster artist Bryan Ragsdale:
RCI, a major music distribution company in Tennessee, released Wyoming singer and songwriter Bryan Ragsdale’s first single, “Modern Day Mountain Man,” nationwide on Tuesday, May 19, to all voting country, Americana, and college radio stations.
“Modern Day Mountain Man,” is a song about all those searching for the freedom the outdoors has to offer. It combines bluegrass, country, folk, and Americana to create a very unique sound that is infecting thousands around the world. “Mountain Man” is already being played across the U.S, Europe and South America.
Ragsdale was born in Wyoming. He is a U.S. military veteran, and father of three children. He is an avid outdoorsman, fisherman, hunter, and backpacker.
Bryan Ragsdale began his music career at the tender age of four. Now 32, Bryan has performed across the U.S., playing at ranches, schools, concert halls, libraries, resorts, and festivals. Known for painting pictures with his profoundly simple lyrics and infectious melodies, Bryan writes music about living life under a big blue sky.
His music reflects the values he was raised with, the values he teaches his own children, values that are often overlooked in mainstream music today. Bryan earns high praise for his classes on songwriting and his performances “leave a piece of nature in everyone” that hears him.
There have already been “Mountain Man” sightings all across the nation. Keep your ears open and get Bryan’s new CD if you have not already at www.bryanragsdale.com before it is in stores. If you buy before July 1, Bryan will autograph it.
