Shotgun Rider

9:30pm-11:00pm

In their short time as a country duo, lead singer Logan Samford and main songwriter Anthony Enriquez have driven their sound from the Panhandle through the avenues of the regional Texas music scene. Honing their craft at happy hours and dive bars on weeknights, SR brings their band to the Lone Star State's venues on the weekends. Managed by industry veteran and Floydada native Alex Torrez (former Dir. A&R Sony Music Nashville, Lawrence Music Group, Artist Relations Gibson NY), the two have great direction in the industry. Torrez began his own Torrez Music Group in early 2015 and signed Shotgun Rider as his first act. Together, their music has pushed their total streams in the millions on Spotify, been featured on ABC's 'Nashville', allowed them to tour relentlessly through the Texas/Oklahoma circuit, and catapulted their sales to the charts, with three Top 20 Records on iTunes Country and one Top 10 Record on Billboard South Central Heatseekers.
