I really enjoy getting to talk with artists. In a way artists, like Veterans, have to adapt, overcome and in some cases re-invent themselves.
Savannah Rae is no exception and I wanted to find out what makes her A Typical Texas Girl. She also loves the military. Savannah comes from a military family. Her father was a Marine and grandparents service in the Marine Corps and Army. Savannah has sang the Star Spangled Banner at several military functions. I have spent a lot of time in Texas, and it is truly a place like no other.
Getting to talk with Savannah about her musical journey and love for America is one of the best parts of doing Oscar Mike Radio.

It is always a good to get to talk with artists who are not military. In many ways artists have to adapt, overcome and stay in their journey to attain success. Dariann Leigh is a great example of this. Her latest single, “10,000 Miles” is about the challenges of having a loved one serving far away. The song is based on Dariann’s experiences and her deep love for America and our military. Talking with Dariann about her love for our country and wanting to honor those who serve is a stark contrast to seeing people with a different viewpoint get public attention. 10,0000 Miles is Dariann’s way to emphasize that honor of those who serve our country.

Thanks for talking with me Dariann and I am working on Tik-Tok so I don’t see so ancient!
Payton Howie is an emerging artist in the Nashville scene. She is not a new artist however. Payton has been performing since she was five years old. I was fortunate enough to talk with Payton the day her single “Freedom” dropped on SoundCloud. Payton believe that being an American is a great thing and those who defend our freedoms should not be forgotten.
This was different for me because usually all you see on the news are the people who don’t like America. Payton wanted to be unapologetic that she and her fans appreciate in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
Payton seems to think she can convert me to country. We will see how that goes;) I did enjoy the video of “Freedom” you can click here (https://youtu.be/l87U6eKMXns) to watch it on YouTube. The video dropped on Memorial Day which I thought was fitting.
Thanks for talking with me Payton. All the best for your goals in 2021! Go to www.paytonhowie.com to learn more!
Tarrish has literally been performing all her life. Whether with her family or being a child actor, Tarrish’s experiences eventually led her out to Nashville.
Connecting her music to someone listening is one of the most rewarding aspects of being artist Tarrish told me.
When I asked her about family connections to the military, there was a look of pride when she told me about her family’s service across generations. Tarrish is honored to use her music to support those who have served.
Despite all the challenges that came from COVID-19, she is looking forward to songwriting, recording, touring in 2021.
I have enjoyed getting to talk to all the country music artists that are supporting L United. Thanks for coming on Oscar Mike Radio.

January 16th Chris Tuner will be performing at The Boondox (https://the-boondox.business.site/) in Columbia, TN to support the launch of L United.

L United is bringing hockey to Veterans and children in the Nashville, TN region. This organization is taking a unique approach to hockey for children and Veteran’s Advocacy.
