Each Friday at 9:30am, KICK-FM will feature an artist on the rise during the Breakthrough Artist of the Week, brought to you by Glass One Quincy.

Growing up in Jackson, TN, right about halfway between Nashville and Memphis, Brandon Lay couldn't help but be raised on great music. As a songwriter, he culls influence and inspiration from some of the greats like John Mellencamp, Alan Jackson Bruce Springsteen. He draws on his own life to tell the stories of that small town living. In 2016, Brandon signed with EMI Nashville, and released his first EP, Speakers, back in July of this year. For more about Brandon Lay, you can visit his website here. The Speakers EP, featuring his single "Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers," is available on iTunes.
