Join us for a Night in Nashville at Wildwood Amphitheater featuring:
Two voices — one given, one earned. Singer, songwriter and entertainer Annie Bosko has married the two, recognizing that a powerful and beautiful vocal instrument is, in isolation, incapable of taking her where she has every intention of going.
Born and raised a farmer’s daughter and the middle of 5 children, Annie is no stranger to hard work and fighting for her voice to be heard. She’s entertained audiences up to 300,000 people, played the Grand Ole Opry, received a standing ovation at Ryman Auditorium and has toured the country opening for acts such as Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Wynona Judd, Big & Rich, Josh Turner, Pat Benetar and more. She has shared the stage and performed with Adele, Darius Rucker, Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and more.
Annie has penned songs for Willie Nelson, Jessica Simpson, Marie Osmond, Ty Herndon, Rita Wilson, Jessica Andrews and more. Her single, “Crooked Halo” was featured as a Highway Find on Sirius XM The Highway and the music video topped the charts on CMT. Rolling Stone magazine praised her as the #2 new country artist to watch, describing her as the “California girl next door with the country-pop delivery of Sheryl Crow.”
Jesse Wayne Taylor
Unlike the majority of musicians in Nashville, singer songwriter Jesse Wayne Taylor is a born and bred middle Tennessee native. Growing up with a love for music, he experimented with writing lyrics as young as 7 years old. While singing in church throughout middle and high school, Jesse did not pick up the guitar until he was nearly 19. In his early years of college at Lipscomb University, he quickly realized that music would be a very big part of his life. While still in school he played around town any chance he could get. Following his college graduation, he decided to give the full time musician dream a chance. While “cutting his teeth,” he played in the bars to make a living for nearly two years in and out of state. Jesse began to have some vocal issues, which lead him to an ENT specialist along with some vocal therapy and year off from gigging full time. In the year off, he has put much time and effort into sharpening his skills and letting his voice heal. New and old songs are to be recorded this year. Jesse is officially gigging full time again and would love to see you along the way.
Growing up Jilian Linklater had aspirations to become a pediatrician. After winning a trip her junior year in high school to Nashville for CMA Fest and finding out you could make a living writing songs, Jilian’s plans changed and she redirected her scholarly goals to a songwriting major at Belmont University. The idea of a life as a pediatrician had officially been permanently replaced by the life of an artist.
Jilian has had song placements in the Amazon series ‘Eat the World’ with Emeril Lagasse, A&E’s ‘Born This Way,’ and Degrassi. She has cuts with Christian recording artist Jason Gray, Mama Dear and country group South Haven. Her song “Walking Stories” currently has more than 5 million spins on Spotify.
Matt Bell relocated to Nashville from the bluegrass state of Kentucky to pursue his love for music. A full time entertainer, songwriter and southern gent, the music that Matt Bell creates is authentic, genuine and the guy’s just an all around good time.
Country music singer Sadie Bass grew up in small town Michigan, hunting and fishing with her Dad, and those pastimes became the focal point of the first song she wrote called “Son He Never Had.” And yes, Sadie Bass is her given name. Her music and lifestyle could be the poster child for outlaw country music and she could easily hop the bus on any contemporary country music tour and be welcomed onto any stage today. Shortly after writing her first song and posting it on social media, she was contacted by country music radio stations and asked to perform opening sets for touring country acts traveling through Michigan.
Sadie began her college career with a softball scholarship, but quickly decided that being a dream chaser was what she was meant to do. She started writing more songs about romance, fishing, drinking beer, her pickup truck, family and faith, posting them online, and her grassroots following quickly spread like wildfire reaching 21k on Instagram in a few short months.
She has been contacted by multiple outdoor companies to be a model and brand influencer for their products, and one company offered to sponsor her next official video. Sadie is working on her first full length album, and has plans to move to Nashville. In the meantime, she has created a loyal following of fans who fill the house whenever and wherever she performs.
