New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Rhett Walker Band

phil : July 19, 2012 7:48 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

Radio Friend Phil – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup: New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.   WJTL has played some excellent Southern-rock bands throughout the years including Needtobreathe, Decemberadio and Samestate, among others.  This week’s roundup artist is Rhett Walker Band from Nashville, Tennessee. Led by Rhett Walker Canipe, a young outspoken musician, Rhett is the son of a southern preacher who says, “We moved away from my hometown when I was 16, and I didn’t like that. I just went nuts, doing whatever I wanted to do in the moment. I mixed with the wrong crowd, got into fights and drugs, and expelled from school. I was sent to a Christian school, the only one that would take me, met a girl, and it wasn’t long after that we found out she was pregnant. That was the stop in the path for me.” From there, Rhett and his girlfriend April decided to redirect their lives. He rededicated his life to God, and she accepted Christ for the very first time. As Rhett and April matured in faith, Rhett began leading worship at churches, decided to pursue music and songwriting, and move to Nashville. To read the complete story, go to http://rhettwalkerband.com/ You can sample music off the new project “Come to the River,” connect to the iTunes store, watch videos, and link to facebook and twitter.
