Ben Bradford


Ben Bradford Bio:

Ben Bradford grew up influenced by some of country’s biggest heavyweights — Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, and Kenny Chesney, but the biggest influences of his life were right under his own roof, and they inspired his music in a myriad of ways.

 

Entering the Texaco Country Showdown competition on a whim, Ben Bradford was eventually chosen as a Top 10 Finalist in his region, and won it, traveling to the State competition and placing second overall. A local radio station recognized his talent and called on him to open one of their shows for Colt Ford, and soon he was on his way to Nashville to pursue his dream full force. Since then, he’s had the chance to open for acts like Chris Young, Colt, and Grace Potter, and is currently writing with some of Nashville’s best writers.

 

Thanks to his dad, Ben had an affinity growing up for the classic rock sounds of bands like the Eagles, Led Zeppelin, and Van Halen, but one listen to Garth Brooks “Friends in Low Places” and he became hooked on country, quickly turning his attention to hitmakers like George Straight and Kenny Chesney. He definitely combines all of those influences in his own music, which he describes as “country with a rocking influence.” On songs like “I Need A Cold One,” or “Wasted Time,” he channels that hard-driving energy of classic rock, yet with lyrics and sentiments that fit in perfectly with the songs on country radio today.

 

For Ben Bradford, it’s all about connecting with the audience and giving them a good time.” “I like to get people up and laughing, or crying, or whatever…provide an escape for them for a few hours. I love to see the smile on somebody’s face when they hear a song of mine and instantly start singing it with me. It’s all about getting the people to connect with what you’re doing.”
