Texas singer/songwriter John Travis Slaughter is an example of what devotion and love of his trade exemplify. Being raised around a family where country music was being played in nearly every room in the house, it was only fitting that John developed a love for the music. While playing in Texas, John’s talents gave him the opportunity to audition for a spot in the band of country music singer, Roger Creager. While working for Roger Creager, John has played over 600 tour dates, with attendances reaching nearly 800,000. John Slaughter’s work on Roger Creager’s “Live Across Texas” album helped the organization win Live Album of the Year in 2003. John has also played on several recording projects over the last few years, including projects for Roger Creager. John has also written two #1 songs on the Texas Music Charts; “I Love Being Lonesome” by Roger Creager and more recently “Pray for Rain” by Cody Johnson. John’s energetic live show and strong vocals are leaving crowds pleased and wanting more.

Jody Booth’s DNA is made of music, literally. That’s apparent in both his live and recorded performances where his easy command of the six-string is striking. Jody’s vocal and songwriting talents are also remarkable. Extremely proud to be called a Country artist, he has dedicated his career to creating what he calls real Country music. Although his influences include many great predecessors including George Jones, Waylon Jennings, and Dean Dillon, he likes to say that his greatest influences remain, “My Momma and Merle Haggard, God rest his soul.” His many collaborations include “I Love Being Lonesome,” written with John Slaughter, Alan Huff and Roger Creager, and recorded and released by Creager. The song went to #1 on the Texas Music Chart in September 2009. “Honky Tonk Heaven,” also a #1 hit for Jody, was written with Doug Forrest and Jason Cassidy, and released by Cassidy in 2011. A more recent #1 on the Texas charts, “Whiskey and Pride,” was written with Tim Nichols, Kyle Hutton and Cory Morrow and released by Morrow in 2018.
