Frank Foster embodies musical independence at its highest level. He not only has taken the
road less traveled, but the road almost never traveled. Acting as his own record label,
Management, booking agency and publishing company, he has managed to find success that
some major label artists may never find. This rural Louisiana native and former oil field man
has taken his songs from the campfire to the coliseum seemingly overnight, all the while
gaining a following of fans whose loyalty is unmatched.
His musical journey started in 2011 with the release of his first album Rowdy Reputation.
To follow that up, in the late summer of 2012, he released his second album, Red Wings and
Six Strings. Each and every song from both of those albums have become nightly sing-alongs
at his shows. Foster’s next 5 albums all debuted on the Billboard Country Charts.
Southern Soul was released in 2013 debuted at No. 11.Rhythm and Whiskey was released in
2014 debuted at No. 4. His early 2016 release, Boots On The Ground, debuted at No. 7.
Later in 2016, he released Good Country Music, which debuted at No.13. In 2018, he released
his seventh album, ’Til I’m Gone, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country
Album Sales Charts giving Foster his highest mark yet. He’s a singer, a songwriter and his own
boss. He refuses to let anyone water down his kind of counrty music. If he lives it, he writes
it; if he writes it, he sings it; if he sings it, he believes it. Frank Foster … a true original
Join us for the second show in our own Sumter Opry Express! Darryl Worley’s songs like the #1 hits “I Miss My Friend,” “Awful, Beautiful Life” and “Have You Forgotten?” have made you love him.

Now you get to experience them both on the Sumter Opera House stage, along with opening act and Sumter’s own Front Porch Junkies!
Mason Ramsey is a 12 year old country artist signed to Big Loud and Atlantic Records. He was discovered
in April of 2018 when a video of him singing Hank William’s “Love Sick Blues” went viral.
Raised by his Grandparents, Mason is from Golconda, IL, which is a small town with a population of 700
people. Growing up without Internet, a cellphone or computers meant that a majority of his time was
spent with his Grandpa Ernie learning about the history of Country music. With his guidance he learned
to play guitar and start singing at the age of 4.
Over the years Mason would travel and play wherever he could catch a crowd. Being from a town of 700,
the best places to find them were nearby truck stops, church and the Walmart 45 minutes from their
home. He eventually developed the nickname “The Singing Walmart Boy” around town.
After a video of Mason yodeling went viral in April 2018, he has since then become one of the most viral
and influential Country stars on social media today. He’s amassed 2.1 million followers on Instagram in a
matter of 6 months which is more than some of the biggest Country stars today. His lead single ‘Famous’
has over 60 million total plays and is approaching to become a gold record. He made his Grand Ole Opry
debut and has performed there 3 times. He has played at major festivals including Coachella, and
Stagecoach. He has been invited and performed on numerous televisions shows such as Ellen, Good
Morning America, and Today’s Show. Mason was apart of the legendary CMA Awards with hosts Brad
Paisley and Carrie Underwood. He is currently touring with country star Chris Lane and has a Las Vegas
residency with Florida Georgia Line at the Planet Hollywood in December 2018.
Mason finishes off the year as the biggest stars of 2018. Making friends with the the likes of Shawn
Mendes, Millie Bobby Brown, and other massive pop stars; Mason is definitely on his way to bringing the
Country to the mainstream. Masons videos continue to go viral and sometimes approach 10-100 million
views per video. The Internet has fallen in love with him as he has had one of the most breakout years of
any entertainer in 2018.
Mason recently moved just outside of Nashville. He spends most of his time playing shows, playing
basketball, and writing with other Nashville writers. He is surrounded by an incredible family that
supports him as he continues to develop as an artist and chase his dream of becoming … as he would
put it… “the Steph Curry of Country Music”
