John Rimel secured his first of many album cuts on the Statler Brothers' (Country Music Hall of Fame Inductees) 1983 release, Today. Since that time John has had songs recorded on seven Top 10 albums, including a Billboard #1 country album as well as a #1 bluegrass album. His songwriting credits include co-writing with Jimmy Fortune "More Than A Name On A Wall," a top 10 hit, nationally awarded by BMI and named the 1990 Country Song of the Year. Dailey and Vincent (Grammy nominees and three-time IBMA Entertainers of the Year) also included this song on their 2008 self-titled Bluegrass Album of the Year. John collaborated with Jimmy Fortune to pen songs for Jimmy's debut album, When One Door Closes, for Nashville-based Audium Records. John’s songs have been recorded by numerous artists and have been performed on national cable and network television. He has toured nationally as keyboardist for the Jimmy Fortune Band. John released his self-titled gospel CD in 2004 on Oxford Hill records. He has performed his songs on the Grand Ole Opry and with artists as diverse as Ricky Scaggs, Hall & Oates, Delbert McClinton, James Cotton, and Earl Scruggs. 

Tom Proutt has been performing and writing songs for more than forty years throughout his varied music career. During that span, he has performed nationally as a solo artist, in duos, and trios. Tom is currently lead guitarist for Keith Morris and the Crooked Numbers. He has shared the stage with Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Richard Shindell, Carrie Newcomer, and Slaid Cleaves. Tom has released two well-received CDs featuring his unique and memorable songs: “Farm Jazz” (2003) and “Pancake Mamma” (2007), the latter a collaboration with songwriter and vocalist extraordinaire Emily Gary. An excellent studio musician, he has added his virtuosity and unique guitar styling to numerous recordings. In 2015, Tom and Emily were under consideration for a Grammy for “Goodnight Songs,” a CD of charming lullabies derived from unpublished poems of “Goodnight Moon” author, Margaret Wise Brown. In 2016 Tom and Emily released their second audio picture book, “Goodnight Songs; A Celebration of the Seasons” also considered in the Children's category of the Grammys.
