Singer-Songwriter, Heather Whitney comes from an itty-bitty, one-red-light town deep in the pines of Southeast Texas, where the mosquitoes are big, but Heather’s love for music is bigger.

Heather’s new album, ”Moving on” is full of love, heartbreak, and moving on. This album is everything she has lived through, felt, and overcame, while in the studio. ”Just because you’re working towards your dreams, doesn’t mean that the world stops spinning, and hardships won’t find you,” says Heather. ”What gave me strength to complete my album, was knowing that I was not alone, and that someone else out there would hear these songs, relate to them, and possibly gain some healing like I did. We have to stick together.”

Heather spent the last year flying back and forth from Newton, TX to Nashville, TN, writing, hand-picking songs for the album, and recording with producer, Buddy Hyatt. She just wrapped and released her first music video for her single ”Shut Up And Dance” and her album ”Moving On” (Now available on ITunes).

”Everyone who was apart of this project was there because of their belief in me, and I’m forever humbled and thankful for them and this experience. Everything that I put into this album will absolutely translate to the listener. Hope y’all enjoy it.”

Heather Whitney is very excited that his music is being played on 752.2 Radio.

CHESTNUT played at most of the country festivals in Sweden and Denmark. In both 2012 and 2013, they were nominated in the Swedish Country Music Championships.

In late 2013, TJ decided to release his songs under his own name, TJ Leonard.

Clarke Wright has been playing music in some form or another since the early 1970s. He worked with David Ferretta and the Sunday River Boys in Denver in the mid ’70s and appears on their Biscuit City recording “You Can Dress ‘Em Up, But You Can’t Take ‘Em Out.” If you ask Clarke how long he has been playing fiddle he will tell you, “Long enough to where you would say, ‘Wow, shouldn’t you be better than that?'” He has spent over 30 years with The Hollywood Rodeo Band and later their pared down acoustic version, High, Wide and Handsome. HRB/HWH recorded 7 albums and has toured extensively, visiting over 40 nations and territories, entertaining our nation’s Armed Forces.

He picked up the fiddle ‘sometime back in the 20th Century’, and is self taught. “When I hit a wrong note or clam-out a break, I just blame my teacher,” Clarke says.

Originally from Minnesota and the son of an Episcopal Priest, Clarke has evolved into “A Heckuva Fiddle Player” (AHFP). Clarke plays mostly fiddle and guitar, but also mandolin and bass sometimes.

He plays 4 and 5-string fiddles and gets his inspiration and is influenced by Byron Berline, Bob Wills, Tommy Jackson, Leon Rausch, Tom Morrell and the Time Warp Tophands, Johnny Gimble, Vassar Clements, Chet Atkins, Randy “Snuffy” Elmore and a whole lot more!

Clarke is extremely excited about joining 7522 Radio and he looks forward to record some podcasts (and play live) very soon.
