The Black Dog Country Music Festival welcomes multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Hudson Moore, modern-vintage Nashville legacy bearers Little Feather and Franklin County's own Crawford and Power.

Crawford and Power are just back from recording a new album in Nashville.

Come listen and dance to great country music all afternoon and enjoy your favorite Chateau Morrisette wines. Admission includes wine tastings through the afternoon, on site parking and entertainment. Beer, select red and white flights, all our wines available by the bottle or glass, festival foods and crafts will be offered for sale.

In a world where tapping your finger summons any kind of music you’d want to hear, it takes a lot for a new artist to capture the public’s attention. It takes a compelling voice, impressive musical chops and songs that are both entertaining and insightful. It also helps to have a passion for making music that leaps from the speakers, grabs the listener by the ears and settles in their heart. Hudson Moore is that caliber of artist.

Moore, who was recently named one of Rolling Stone's "10 New Country Artists You Need to Know" is quickly building a loyal fan base with his engaging, self-assured voice and his awe-inducing musical skills. The music video for his single, “Some Are,” off his critically acclaimed new album GETAWAY has people scratching their heads in disbelief when they see the video because each camera shot reveals Moore’s musical dexterity as he plays EVERY instrument in the video (drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitar, 6 string banjo, keys and harmony vocals).

Moore, who has reputation as a great live performer, has earned opening slots for ZZ Top, Alan Jackson, Pat Green, Rascal Flatts, Chris Young, Gary Clark Jr. among others.

Moore has a creative hand in everything he does from the production of his albums to the arrangements, the mix you hear, and the videos you see. Hudson hand selected a small, but tight group of musicians to help fill out the sound of the album. In addition to co-writing each of the songs on GETAWAY, Moore played eleven instruments during the recording process.

Moore has expanded on the musical foundation provided by his heroes and forged his own distinct sound teaming with youthful energy and anchored by memorable melodies and relatable lyrics. And though he has the musical skill and vocal talent to succeed in any genre, there was never any doubt he’d call country music his home.

Moore’s talent and buoyant personality have earned him a broad and enthusiastic fan base. His debut album, “Fireworks,” spawned the hit single of the same title, “Fireworks,” which soared to No. 1 on the Texas Music chart and held that spot for two weeks in 2013. His songs have appeared in TV and films, including the 2013 western film “Sweetwater” starring Ed Harris, January Jones and Jason Aldean, which featured Moore’s “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” over the closing credits.

Moore has also developed a reputation as a strong live performer and has opened for many of his musical heroes as well as headlining his own shows in notable venues such as Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honky tonk and Gruene Hall.

Moore’s excitement for making music is contagious and whether on stage or off, there’s a simmering energy that makes a conversation with him a delight and a concert so galvanizing that it’s experience not to be missed.



Country singer-songwriter Liz Sharpe (a.k.a. Little Feather) literally has music in her blood. From the tiny Appalachian town of Pikeville, Kentucky, she was born into the fabled singing dynasty that includes Loretta Lynn and Patty Loveless (her second cousins) and she has been making music practically since she emerged from the womb. At age three she announced to her unsuspecting parents "Mama, I am music", and her daddy promptly went out and sold his guitar and accordion to buy his daughter her first piano.

After years of singing and playing organ in the church choir she ran off to school in Florida and college in Australia (she wanted to learn to surf) where she studied classical piano and composition for film. But like most country musicians she eventually retraced her roots and found her way to Nashville, Tennessee. After a stint on keyboards with a variety of artists, she joined forces with her five best musical compadres (Aaron Spraggs, Sam Brooker, Luc Nyhus, Shannon Campbell (Glen Campbell's son), and Dylan Rowe) and has found her musical home with Little Feather.

Evoking the ghosts of her Appalachian/Cherokee past, the modern-vintage yodel and stomp of Little Feather is a sound as country as cornbread but fresh as tomorrow's Twitter feed. Little Feather is creating quite a buzz in the Nashville music community and beyond. That little girl from Pikeville, Kentucky, has come into her own as a singer, songwriter and performer, and with Little Feather she has found her wings.



Crawford & Power is a Country and Southern Rock band based out of Franklin County, Virginia. After numerous successful shows and opening for acts like Jerry Douglas, Chris Knight, and headlining at The Blue Dahlia, The Floyd Country Store, Table 50, and a plethora of private gigs throughout Virginia, Crawford and Power decided to form a duo in the spring of 2015.

The two young musicians have already made a name for themselves as unparalleled cover artists, and have recently begun to perform originals. The duo has opened for acts such as Marshall Tucker, Luke Combs, Chris Knight, Jerry Douglas, Drake White, Confederate Railroad, Russell Dickerson, and many more.
