Wyatt Easterling and Friends with Wes Collins Presented by Six String

Friday, June 14, 2024
Growing up in Chapel Hill, NC, Wyatt Easterling released his debut album, Both Sides of the Shore, on Moonlight Records (Warner Bros.) in 1981. With his album tucked under his arm, he moved to Nashville and began striving to make his way in the music business in whatever way he could. While looking for another record deal, he wrote for various song publishers. In 1990, he became head of A&R for Atlantic Records Nashville. That same year, he wrote and sang on “This Time I’m Takin’ My Time” for Neal McCoy’s album, At This Moment. This collaboration launched more than 2 decades of gold and platinum winning releases with Easterling acting as songwriter, producer, executive and/or session player. www.wyatteasterling.com Wes Collins picked up the guitar when he was seventeen, and worked at it for ten years or so playing covers. Around his thirtieth birthday he parked the Takamine under the bed and got a straight job as a buyer for a retail music chain. He dug the guitar back out in 2000 and got back at it, but hit his forties before writing his first song, mainly because he was scared to write bad ones. www.wescollins.com Will Call tickets may be picked up at The Cary starting one hour prior to the performance.
