For today’s “On the Road”, the road came to us at Three Rivers Media! It’s not often that a small area like Wytheville can say they had a star on the rise stop by. Luckily for us – Tim Elliott has familial ties in the area and stopped by WYVE this morning to chat with Danny G about his brand new single “Boom” that dropped on February 15th. You may remember Tim from his performance at the 2014 Chautauqua Festival in Wytheville. Since then, Tim Elliott has been very, very busy.
Voted Country Artist of the Year in 2015, Tim has spent the last several years touring up and down the east coast from Washington D.C. to the depths of Florida. After signing to Sony in Summer 2015, it’s been a whirlwind for Tim who has an entire EP to be released at a later date. A native of West Jefferson, NC, Tim began singing bluegrass and gospel as a child and his love of music and performing grew from there. Now Tim and his family call the Mt. Airy area home. His wife, Hope, has roots in our listening area as a native of Fort Chiswell.
For now, Tim travels between his North Carolina home, Nashville, and concert venues big and small as his dream comes to fruition. He credits his fans with his success and says he enjoys playing in small venues because it gives him a chance to connect with his fanbase. Great things are surely ahead for this rising Nashville star.
Thanks to Tim Elliott for stopping by this morning! We wish him the best of luck and he is invited back any time on WYVE 1280AM. Remember to check out his single “Boom” today! It is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and more. Don’t forget to request “Boom” on your local radio stations far and wide if you are outside of our listening area. It is already a part of our playlist here at WYVE 1280AM. If you love it as much as we do, let us know!
