GALLERY: Country stars Jacob Powell, Audrey Ray perform @ The Shelter

AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo was LIVE at The Shelter in downtown Detroit for an evening with new country music artist Drew Baldridge. His opening acts included Jacob Powell and Detroit’s own Audrey Ray. Hailing from a small town in Tennessee, Jacob Powell’s vocals instantly capture your attention with his soulful sincerity. His honest approach to songwriting has already caught the ears of some Nashville’s premier talent. After being in Nashville for only a short time Jacob signed with SONY/ATV and announced his “Put It in a Koozie Tour”. Growing up in the small town of Highland, Michigan country music singer-songwriter Audrey Ray made her move to the bright lights. Country music was always playing in her home and she was always encouraged to sing everywhere she went. In 2012, Audrey released her first single “Reckless” to iTunes which was co-written by Audrey and producer Shane D. Grush.
