Duke Spirits is teaming up with a talented group of artists for its latest project, The Masters Music Series, launching today (10/7). Hosted by Runaway June's Jennifer Wayne, The Masters Music Series is a live performance video series that unites an accomplished group of musicians and writers, showcasing and supporting both emerging and established artists through various programs and initiatives. The series will release two videos each week on Duke Spirits' YouTube channel.
The Masters Music Series debuts with Eric Paslay singing his hit "Friday Night," and Paul McDonald performing "New Lovers." Artists featured in upcoming videos include Wynonna Judd, Craig Campbell, The Dryes, Runaway June, Marcus Hummon, Jake Rose, Josh Shilling, Jennifer Wayne & Austin Moody, and more. Watch the official trailer here.
For the music-focused program, Executive Producer & Duke Spirits Founder Chris Radomski and Producer Austin Moody envisioned a sound that embodies the soul and pride of America, the same spirit personified by the legendary Duke, John Wayne. Combining their talents, passion for music, and ideals, this concept came to life inside Studio A at the iconic Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, TN.
“I am extremely proud and honored to work with such a talented and giving group of artists," Radomski says. "We share common values and passions which are the foundation of America and represented by the soul of Duke Spirits. We hope The Masters Music Series will showcase great performances and provide a platform to support emerging artists.”
“My goal for The Masters Music Series was to create a sound which 'The Duke' himself would approve of," Moody adds. "As a man who valued quality and character, we had to make sure this sounded like we were making a record. To back each artist, I handpicked musicians who have a 'thing,' something that no one can truly recreate but those players themselves. It’s not only the playing you have to think about, it’s the attitude – it's the grit.”
