John Thibodeaux, of Beaumont Texas is the latest, and first
country winner of Tennessee Concerts brand new Sonicbids Song
Competition, and it could not of happened to a more deserving cowboy.
I know a few things about high energy country music from my days with the Charlie Daniels
Band and from hanging with the Ragin’ Cajun fiddler, Doug “Louisiana Man” Kershaw. It’s
wild, rough, contagious and a few more adjectives. Pat is a rock and roll guy, but he likes
anything well performed and delivered with precision, like John’s first single Simple Life.
I am a panel judge for this showdown, and very much appreciate an artist with tricks in his
bag. John is an accomplished accordianist (that’s a word; I Googled it), and belts out
catchy country vocals and clever lyrics served up with a side of “everything’s bigger
and better in Texas” cajun attitude.
John is enjoying worldwide airplay on internet radio and adding commercial radio to his
current successes as I type. In my estimation, he will not retain independent artist status
long. I hear a real connection between John and the art of crafting a song. After reviewing
the Simple Life CD, I found all the tracks to be energetic and compelling, where most new
artists spend more time recording and writing the lead single. Nice harmonies, great guitar
work and John has a great voice for radio.
The arrangements are fresh and he doesn’t remind me of any other artist out there.
That’s how it’s done son. Congratulations! See you on the music charts, right below me.
I’m not that nice of a guy!
