Wine, Beer & BBQ will be available for purchase! Singer/songwriter, Travis Meadows, is an artist to the core, but his story is not a story about music. His story is about life; a story about religion and family, addiction, survival, sobriety, and freedom – with music as the narrator. His song, “Riser,” recently recorded by country superstar, Dierks Bentley, says it all… “I’m a riser… I’m a get up off the ground, don’t run and hide-er, Pushing comes to shove, hey I’m a fighter, When darkness comes to town, I’m a lighter, A get out alive-er, Of the fire… Survivor.” Growing up in Jackson, Mississippi, where “Hell ain’t half that hot…you could fry eggs on the parking lot,” he remembers his life as being filled with loss very early on. His first memory was of his brother drowning, his parents divorce and a near death experience with cancer at age fourteen. “It was really sexy going through puberty and chemo at the same time,” but that was the least of his hurdles. Travis laid the foundation for his music career while making the rounds at local bars and clubs, performing with legendary blues players, such as Sam Myers (Anson Funderburg and the Rockets) and Fingers Taylor (Jimmy Buffett). He also laid the foundation for a drug and alcohol problem that would haunt him for years. His original high came at 11 years old from stealing his grandmother’s Valium, then at 24 with a “God experience” that led him to the world of Christian music, trading one addiction for another.
