This year’s Toad Suck Daze music lineup is a mixture of up and coming artists, local favorites, and Grammy Award-winning musician, Steve Earle.
You are sure to find a band or musician who’s style you will enjoy. All performers will be either at the Main Stage of Simon Park or King’s Live Music. We have the complete schedule on our Toad Suck Daze page.
Here is a little information on the musicians coming to Toad Suck Daze, including Conway native Erin Enderlin.
Copperhead Road reached number 10 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and still gets airplay on local stations today. The story in this song is one of John Lee Pettimore III and his family’s bootlegging and moonshine business in Tennessee.
Mac Powell is more likely known as the lead singer for the Christian band Third Day, but has recently started performing country music and with his band The Reunion. Maybe Mac will bless us with a couple of his Third Day hits?
A Thousand Horses
The Nashville band debuted with “Smoke” which became number one in 2015. The song “Southernality” touts the values and principles of living in the South.
No doubt, the group is one of the bands that blurs the lines between country and rock, reminiscent of Lynard Skynard and the Allman Brothers.
David, Luke, Matt & Sharpe
For one night only, the four friends David Miles, Luke Williams, Matt Hays & Sharpe Dunaway are playing Toad Suck Daze.
The North Little Rock native with fiery red hair has a smooth soulful country sound. The word on the street is Bree is debuting a new band at Toad Suck Daze. Recently, Bree was nominated for “Young Artist of the Year” for the first annual Arkansas CMAs.
Ogden counts Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and Reba McEntire among her many influences.
From the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, Dawson Hollow will bring their folk sound to the Late Stage at King’s on Saturday night. Dawson Hollow frequents the area, performing at Conway’s local music venues all year long.
Dazz & Brie
Described as “rock n’ soul,” this female duo serenades with elements of rock and a little funk to go along with their soulful harmonies. Winners of the 25th annual Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase, the duo has traveled the entire country performing, including Riverfest.
They will headline the Late Stage at King’s on Friday night.
Coming on the stage just before Steve Earle on Saturday night is country artist Erin Enderlin.
Enderline is a singer-songwriter penning songs for such artists as Luke Bryan, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, and Lee Ann Womack. She wrote the song “Monday Morning Church” which was recorded by Alan Jackson and reached number 5 on the Billboard Country Chart in 2004.
Her music is a blend of bluegrass and country and she has a voice that reminds me of Pam Tillis. The Conway native claims Reba McEntire, Emmylou, Harris, Dolly Parton, and Suzy Bogguss among many others as influences.
Her album, Whiskeytown Cier was seven years in the making has received critical acclaim.
The Salty Dogs
This country band is from Little Rock. They are 2003 Arkansas Times Musician’s Showcase Winner for Best Original Band in Arkansas. Among their influences are The Rolling Stones, The Band, and Merle Haggard.
Get Off My Lawn
The Conway based band, formed in 2017, plays classic rock hits from the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s at various parties and events throughout the area.
Thanks to our good friend Rick Johnson for capturing some good GOML times at one of our favorite venues, JJ’s Grill in Little Rock.
