Road Dog Media Group at CRS with James Wesley
We caught up with Kansas native, James Wesley in Nashville during CRS and he is one you definitely do not want to miss out on.
While not new to the industry, Wesley was signed with Broken Bow Records for 8 years and released several singles under the BBR label, with ”Jackson Hole” being his first release and “Real” reaching the Top 20. A few other releasea to his credit are “Thank a Farmer,” “Didn‘t I,” and “Walking Contradiction.”
Wesley is now an independent artist, with a whole new direction of approaching his music. As an indie artist, he is back at the ground floor of going around and doing the interviews, promoting his music and taking his time to give all of us his very best.
We do know there is an EP in the works and that the first single will be, “The You I Wanna Know” and we can not wait for the releas so we can share it with all of you.
Make sure you check out our conversation for more information on Wesley and we even take time to google the “clearest lake in Kansas.”
James, thank you for taking some time with us during CRS and we may have to just meet you at Wilson Lake to do some fishing very soon! We wish you the very best and can not wait to see what happens next!
