About Ryan Broshear
Ryan's love of country music began early in life with constant exposure delivered through the speakers of his parent's radios. His father would teach him life lessons through the lyrics of songs like "Forever and Ever Amen" and "Coward of the County". His mother would have country radio constantly in the car. Ryan remembers moving to Texas for a short time and attending 1st grade there."My mother would always play country radio in her car whenever we would go anywhere. Everywhere you go in Texas seems to be a long drive. That is where I first heard artists like Dwight Yoakum, Merle Haggard, and Ricky Skaggs began to be the songs I sang along with. I was only in 1st grade but already I loved the lyrics and sounds of country music."
Ryan got his first guitar at age 12 and by 14 he was playing with his first band, "High Noon". Once he had a taste of being an entertainer he couldn't stop. Playing nightclubs long before he was old enough to be in them and right through to college. His first taste in Nashville was bittersweet with two separate trips to music city ending in a divorce and financial upset. He was forced to move back home amid the struggles of being a young father of two children while working in the car business and chasing his dream of being a country star. However those tough times would serve as fuel for his long journey.
When it was time to record his own debut self-titled project in Nashville, the singer/songwriter drew from those life experiences to create his own classic country songs. The ten songs on the disc are born of long drives, tough times, falling in love and pick-up trucks getting repossessed. Each recorded with the twangs and the reverb of an authentic, bluesy country artist strumming and picking his way into your heart. Broshear’s songs connect with music lovers by exploring subjects like the special relationship between father and son, the discovery of life’s inspiration and the nod to man’s best friend… his dog. Songs like “Make Each Moment Last”, “Countrything”, “Damn Good Place to Start“, “I Don’t Mind”, and “Where Have All the Good Girls Gone” is the kind of good old country music that can’t be faked or manufactured. They exemplify exactly why country music is, and will always be, the sound of America.
"Let Your Redneck Out", a hard driving tribute to the country lifesyle, was the project's first single. The 2012 Summer release inspired a chorus of accolades from media pundits and industry alike. Roughstock's Weekly Single Recap said that "Let Your Redneck Out" is as good and country as anything that's been on radio in the past couple years." Making a promising debut, "Redneck" peaked at #91 on Music Row Magazine's Country Breakout Chart.
Broshear's sophmore single "I Don't Mind" made waves on the chart topping out at #52 behind heavy touring of his Countrything '13 Tour and "I Don't Mind" Radio Tour that traveled all over the country including stops in Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Georgia, and More!
Now Ryan has released his third single, "Make Each Moment Last". The song is a reflection on life and taking the time to enjoy it while we're here. The song was the first song written by Broshear and if his fans reactions are any indications Ryan is in for a big hit on country radio. Stay tuned
