Zac Wilkerson
Zac Wilkerson is a SOUL ROCKER from the COUNTRY.

Powerful, soulful vocals and a driving guitar style combine with poignant songwriting to deliver a new take on Americana, Soul, Country, and Rock.
Wilkerson stumbled into a career in music after being tricked into entering, and eventually winning, The Blue Light Live Singer Songwriter contest in 2011. The prize was a Solo Acoustic set at the 2012 Larry Joe Taylor's Texas Music Festival in Stephenville, TX. He has since etched out a strong following across the Texas the music scene and beyond, with his work appearing in Nationally Syndicated and Regional Radio, and Local and Prime-Time Network TV.
Wilkerson cut his musical teeth in a country church where he started singing at 4. At a young age, he discovered his parents' country, soul, Motown, rock, and folk records, creating a musical foundation with as much variety as passion.  By 12 he played several instruments, including piano and guitar, which led to songwriting that same year. The musical voice that has evolved since is a fresh take on Rock, Soul, Country and Americana evoking Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Bonnie Raitt, and Levon Helm.
Fort Defiance - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Fort Defiance
Fort Defiance is an Americana duo from Nashville, Tennessee, hailed for their honest songwriting, timeless harmonies, and high-energy stage performance.
Meeting in the summer of 2014, Jordan Eastman and Laurel Lane began touring together under the promise they would not attempt to date each other - one year later, they were married and had developed such a chemistry that requests for shows came pouring in.
In response, they quit their jobs, moved into the van, and began touring relentlessly - playing over 250 shows, in 46 states the first year, without the help of management or outside booking agents - and they haven't slowed down since.
With another 250 shows lined up for 2017, their passion and grassroots sincerity has garnered heavy attention from around the country, causing critics to call them "breathtakingly seductive" (That Music Mag), "perfectly haunting" (The Indie Sound) and "a pure, honest voice in a town know for the opposite" (SlyVinyl).
Their newest release, a crowd funded effort called The Haunts of Youth, was made available on March, 2017.
