Signed to Columbia Nashville, it wasn’t long ago that singer and songwriter Bradley Gaskin of Duck Springs, AL, was hanging drywall and he would spend his lunch break writing songs on pieces of Sheetrock paper. At the urging of his wife, Gaskin uploaded some of his songs to MySpace where they were heard that week by country singer and Celebrity Apprentice contestant John Rich’s development company. Gaskin was invited to perform at the “Get Rich Talent Search,” and he won the competition! Rich later brought Gaskin to Sony’s Columbia Nashville, where he signed a record deal in February.
“Mr. Bartender,” his self-penned debut single sounds like a timeless country classic where he asks the bartender for a shot to relieve his heartache. With a strong baritone, Gaskin crafts his own brand of new classic country, distilled through his honky-tonk heroes like Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, and George Jones, to name a few. “Mr. Bartender” is at radio now and look for his debut album later this year.
