Chris Shiflett returns to the UK for a run of headline dates this March, the guitarist’s first solo shows here since 2019.
Recording artist Travis Denning shared a new music video for his song “Buy A Girl A Drink,”. Directed by PJ Brown, Denning performs as a young couple portrays Denning’s real life love story as told in the song. Co-written by Denning with Jeremy Stover, Paul DiGiovanni and Chase McGill, the candlelit confession features Denning’s most tender lyricism to date and has resonated with fans marking the most first-week streams of Denning’s songs to date.
Multi-Platinum Nashville hitmaker Jordan Davis gathered with industry, family, and friends to celebrate two #1 hits, “Buy Dirt” and “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot,” at Tailgate Brewery in Nashville.
Along with Luke Bryan and his fellow co-writers – his brother Jacob Davis, and brothers Matt and Josh Jenkins – Davis was honored with a plaque for the Double-Platinum, multi-week #1 “Buy Dirt.” Standing as one of the most-streamed country songs of 2021 and 2022, “Buy Dirt” has garnered 680 million streams to date, was recently named the NSAI Song of the Year, and is currently nominated for both Single of the Year and Song of the Year at the upcoming 56th Annual CMA Awards.

Exciting occurrences down on the (Snake)farm!
Not only have a number of iconic artists & acts been added to the list of those we’re proud to align with for the UK, but I’ve also recently made my first ever trip to Nashville Rock City…
To be honest, this expedition was long overdue, given the amount of connections I now have with this rapidly expanding hub of all things related to music & tech; add to this the direct British Airways flights which now make the trip so much easier (I was able to re-watch ‘Anchorman’ from the comfort of my aisle seat, always a worthwhile experience), and I just kept asking myself why I hadn’t embarked on this important ‘pilgrimage’ sooner. Much sooner. Read more
A GLOBAL LABEL FOCUSSING ON NEW AND RECOGNISED NAMES WITHIN THE WORLD OF ROOTS ROCK MUSIC, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE HEAVIER SIDE OF COUNTRY & BLUES
AN IMPRINT UNDER THE SPINEFARM RECORDS BANNER.
Snakefarm Records has been set up to provide a supportive home for artists, both established and new, from the increasingly buoyant roots rock world – music based on authenticity and emotion, under-pinned by a strong musical legacy plus a core set of values and beliefs.
With the barriers between different genres becoming increasingly blurred, the time is right for pre-conceptions to be put to one side and music to be enjoyed purely in terms of quality and its ability to connect; and if it’s guitars that primarily illuminate your life, then the worlds of Southern Rock, Country, Blues, Americana, etc. are perfect areas to explore, being rich with great players (old and new) and often featuring multiple-guitar line-ups. Indeed, it has been said that every true Southern Rock album should close with a track that moves seamlessly into an extended guitar work-out that only comes to a close when the grooves run out (and, yes, the vinyl reference is appropriate here).
Says Snakefarm King Cobra Dante Bonutto:-
“There’s so much great activity in rootsy guitar music right now, and Snakefarm is here to both showcase and celebrate everything that’s going on. As well as working with new artists and acts, including key names from the UK, the label will be re-issuing classic titles and generally seeking to establish itself as the go-to hub for activity within the ‘real music’ domain – a cultural foothold in an area of the market that seems to be expanding at a heady rate, with Nashville (arguably the music world’s most influential city) now representing a worldwide brand.”
