Country / Southern Rock / Red Dirt Country / Traditional Country
has fans whom have always enjoyed his electric elements he puts in his music and songs, but his latest effort shows him evolving into an artist who defies classification. While he is composing songs that still explore traditional country. His Red Dirt country sound and Southern Rock elements have begun to eclipse a style of music that most critics have labeled “Spectacular” (or “Throwback,” as Vernon called his latest concert event) country.
My Passion and Dreams
His dream to relocate to Nashville finds Vernon drawing from his earliest influences, rather than his record of his artistic journey. His early memories of music that “struck a chord,” as Vernon says, recall Elvis Presley, Vince Gill, Bill Withers, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Charlie Rich, Alan Jackson, along with a Hodge podge of mainstream and red dirt country artists who put forth elements of folk and blues in their songs as well.
