Warner Music Nashville rising band BEXAR headed back to band member Logan Turner’s hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky this past Friday (1/14) to headline the BGStrong.us Benefit Concert. Joined by local artists Mills, Mojo Thunder, Kiss Kiss Bang and special guests Dusty Leigh “The Colonel” and Big V of Nappy Roots, the show raised over $33,000 for the tornado relief fund in Warren County, KY, where a deadly tornado outbreak devastated the town last month.
Last week, the band kicked off their monthly residency at Nashville’s The Underdog, drawing in a packed crowd. After playing at Nashville’s infamous Whiskey Jam on January 31, they will continue the residency over the next two months on February 24 and March 30 before heading back to Bowling Green for a show at Tidballs on March 31. The band is also slated to join the Tailgate N’ Tallboys festival lineup this summer in Bloomington, IL, performing on June 17.
BEXAR, comprised of Chris Ryan (lead vocals/guitar) and Logan Turner (vocals/banjo/guitar), draws inspiration from groups such as Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers and Avicii and reintroduces country to the pop potential of wooden instruments and organic soul. Their major label debut EP, Pronounced BEAR, is available everywhere now (LISTEN HERE). The six-track EP was produced by award-winning producers Ross Copperman and Luke Laird and showcases the band’s fresh and expressive sound, with all tracks co-written by at least one band member. The band recently started their own podcast, The BEXAR Den, with the first episode available now, featuring songwriter and friend Dave Kuncio (WATCH HERE). Since their 2018 self-released EP, BEXAR has accumulated more than 40 million streams to date and are a MusicRow 2022 Next Big Thing artist, previously landing on Sounds Like Nashville’s Artist to Watch list. American Songwriter’s The Zak Kuhn Show summarized the BEXAR brand well by stating, “these guys are going to make you wish you were in a band.” For more information, visit https://www.bexarofficial.com/.
