It was on a front porch six years ago that Kelly Bradway, Dan Wilson, and Parker Bradway formed the country music trio they now call MAMADEAR—named after a lovely lady with the loveliest porch in Tennessee. All it takes is a verse and a chorus before MAMADEAR feels like a lifelong friend. This may be why they were named Rolling Stone’s “Best Up-and-Comer” at CMA Fest and have opened for acts like John Legend, Sting, Martina McBride, Seal, Santana, Charlie Daniels Band, and Brett Eldredge. Their tunes are nostalgic of all the good things in life. Like the cardboard pop on a can of biscuits, like the glide of the cork from a bottle of Woodford. With a sound meant for stadiums and the heart of the Bluebird, MAMADEAR is taking country music to a place anyone can call home.
So leave your boots on the porch and stay a while.
