Nashville-based country music artist
In the summer of 2005, Nashville was introduced to a fresh new artist playing cover songs on Lower Broadway. From wooden stages in the long shadows of the historic Ryman Auditorium, spirits of past icons influenced the drive and dedication of another soul determined to carry the message and tradition of country music to a new generation. Lewis Copeland represents the blood and heart of those that once shared the same weathered planks while bridging the genre to the new movement committed to the values and simplicity of country music. Putting his innate creativity to use in the sports realm, Lewis Copeland recently wrote and recorded an original theme song, “Smashville,” for the Nashville Predators, the city’s national hockey (NHL) team. On December 15, 2010, Copeland debuted “Smashville” to a full arena, followed by an exclusive after party at The STAGE on Broadway. Several radio stations are spinning the single during sports talk and day-parts connected to the Predators hockey games including markets like Nashville, TN, Lexington, KY Johnson City, TN and Paducah, IL. Copeland ran a “Smashville Fan Sweepstakes” on his Facebook page and website and one lucky fan won a new iPad2. Lewis Copeland has had the privilege to open for big acts including Willie Nelson, Neil Young and Darius Rucker. He was also recently a featured "accomplice" in TLC's "What Not To Wear.”
Lewis Copeland’s debut album is scheduled to drop in summer 2011, and he will be releasing the new single within the next few weeks.
