Eric Raines To Be Honored By ‘Songwriters Across Texas’

Eric Raines To Be Honored By ‘Songwriters Across Texas’

Songwriters Across Texas Honors Eric Raines from Songwriters Across Texas on Vimeo.

Born deep in the heart of Texas, Eric has a Texas sized heart and spirit for Texas songwriters and their live music. Eric first began his entertainment career as a drummer for 15 years and then with that perspective, he evolved into an outstanding innovator in the radio world with 15 years in Central Texas radio. Last year Eric was named Broadcast Personality Of The Year at the Texas Country Music Association Awards Show.

The stage will be glowing with our two prominent Texas singer songwritersDrew Womack and Bri Bagwell. 

Drew, who grew up playing guitar, has earned five ASCAP awards and two BMI awards for his songwriting. His former band, Sons of the Desert, earned several awards – Academy of Country Music awards, a Country Music Association award, two Country Music Television awards and a total of 11 nominations among the most prestigious country awards shows. 


More recently, now in a solo career the past few years, Drew Womack feels he has discovered a new freedom and has turned the page for a rebirth in his songwriting and performing with a fresh cutting edge sound ‘that mixes Americana, crossover and the familiar alt-country twang’ – a sound and style all his own. With his deep, emotionally impactful lyrics, stretching from lighthearted to dark, reflecting his life experiences, Drew is now doing it ‘his way’ and that makes all the difference. Drew says, “I believe there is a song for each listener”.


Bri Bagwell, too, fell in love with music at an early age. With her attitude of independence, steadfast resolve and faith in her dreams, she is following her heart as a singer songwriter. Writing songs with strong visual images with insight into truth of the music industry and the curses and blessings of her chosen career, Bri has been described as ‘a contemporary country artist with a honky tonk heart and a romantic streak’. Bri is a six-time Texas Regional Radio Female Vocalist of the Year. Her tenacity paired with her strong confident passionate vocals are blazing her path.

Join the fun with Songwriters Across Texas Television Show, honoring Eric Raines, Thursday, February 7th, 7-9pm at Opal Divine’s Austin Grill South.
