Percy Priest dad, Dan Smalley has been playing music for more than 24 years and has been writing for the last 12. Having grown up with musical influences that span from honky-tonk and country & western to gospel, rhythm & blues and Classic Rock, Smalley’s sound has often been described as part of the recent ‘real country’ movement with the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell and others. His tone resembles some of the greatest in Country Music history, and is a breath of fresh air in today’s pop country landscape. Over the past decade, he has shared the stage with Randy Rogers, The Turnpike Troubadours, Cody Canada, Travis Meadows, Ryan Bingham, Jason Boland and many more.
Clint Daniels was born and raised in the Florida panhandle. He gained an interest in music as a child, singing with his sister in church. Inspired by bluegrass, Daniels taught himself to play guitar at age 12. After graduating high school, he moved to Nashville, TN in pursuit of a career in country music. By 1998, he was discovered by an A&R staff member from the Artista label, and was signed that year. He’s continued working with various labels and artists since then.
Daniels has co-written songs for other country artists, including the Number One hits “Brokenheartsville” by Joe Nichols and “Roll with Me” by Montgomery Gentry (from 2003 and 2008 respectively), as well as Brooks & Dunn‘s 2008 single “God Must Be Busy“. He also co-wrote two songs that were released in late 2010: Clay Walker‘s “Where Do I Go from You” and Easton Corbin‘s “I Can’t Love You Back“. In late 2013, he co-wrote Josh Thompson‘s “Cold Beer with Your Name on It“. In late 2017, he co-wrote Jon Pardi‘s “She Ain’t In It”. Most recently (2018) he released a new album of his own, titled “Brown Bottle Blues.” And Clint co-wrote hit single “Some Of It” for Eric Church
Caeland Garner grew up in the small town of Coleridge, where his family lives on a 300-acre farm with horses, cows and Carolina pines. For Caeland, music is a way of life. His dad is a bluegrass musician and taught Caeland to play the banjo when he was five. After college, Caeland moved to Nashville, looking to be a musician for hire after Red Marlow convinced him to make the jump. He spent a long time touring with Red as the dobro player in his band. Caeland’s been in Nashville for 10 years now, collaborating as a musician, songwriter, producer and session singer. He was a contestant on “The Voice” in season 15 and joined Team Blake. When you see Caeland live, whether it be with a looping station or just an acoustic guitar, you can’t take your eyes and ears off the experience.
