Join us on Friday October 27, 2023 at 7:30 pm for a private SINGER/SONGWRITER show with Tommy Karlas and Joel Shewmate. (REGISTERED ATTENDEES ONLY.)
Tommy Karlas is a professional country music singer/songwriter for Sony Music Publishing/Droptine. In 2001 at the age of 19, Tommy moved to Nashville from East Alton, IL and secured his first publishing deal on Music Row. Since then, he’s written songs for country music’s biggest stars such as Blake Shelton, Randy Travis, Old Dominion, Warren Zeiders, Montgomery Gentry, Trisha Yearwood, and many more. And it was the multi-week number one smash hit, Roll With Me, that went on to be the fastest rising and most downloaded song of Montgomery Gentry’s long career, penning Tommy an ASCAP Songwriter Of The Year nomination. Tommy’s written songs with Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Old Dominion, Chris Young, Bobby Braddock, Mac Davis, and many more; Tommy has performed all over the country, including under the Arch for over 100,000 people, as well as the Ryman Auditorium, and plays regularly in Nashville at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe.
Tommy released his debut songwriter album in October of 2021 entitled “Put It In Drive” which is on its way to two million views and streams. And is following that up in 2023 with his sophomore album, What Matters To Her.
Singer/songwriter Joel Shewmake moved to Nashville from Cookeville, TN in 2001 to pursue a career in music. He signed his first publishing deal soon after and has since written songs recorded by artists such as Brad Paisley, Montgomery-Gentry, Gary Allan, Craig Campbell, Lonestar, Trace Adkins, Jerrod Niemann, Jacob Bryant, Cody Johnson, Randall King & Brent Cobb.
